Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to choosing the perfect wedding outfit. While many brides are excited to start shopping early, they often make some common mistakes that can lead to confusion and disappointment. In this article, we'll address some of the major stereotypical ideas that brides may have and we'll ask industry experts what they think about these mistakes.

Mistake 1: Starting Wedding Outfit Shopping Too Early

One of the most common mistakes that brides generally tend to make when starting their wedding outfit shopping is doing so too early. Nowadays, engagements are kept longer than they used to be, so it's inevitable to get excited and start shopping and looking around at what's out there. However, when you start something so far in advance (which is about a year to a year and a half in advance), it can get a little confusing for a lot of brides because the choice is unlimited.

At charming creations, experts recommend starting your research and shopping between four months to seven months before the wedding. This time frame is plenty of time for you to make a decision on which designer you'd like to go with.

Mistake 2: Having A Set Look In Mind

Another common mistake that brides make is fixating on a certain picture they've seen on the web, on social media, or in magazines, and having a set look that they want to create. While it's important to have a vision, it's also important to have a conversation with your makeup artist and put your trust in them that they have their professional opinion too. This will ensure that you create a look that's going to look good on your features and your skin, and that's going to suit you.

Mistake 3: Leaving Your Jewellery Till The End

One major mistake is not leaving enough time for your jewellery to be styled and created for you. At Kyles, our experts need about three weeks to hand craft your jewellery. We offer an instore or virtual consultation to assess all the needs that you may have, plus what's going to suit you. Our team take a lot of pride in taking all of these concepts and aspects into consideration before they help you style and create a jewellery piece to suit your style and of course budget.

Mistake 4: Not Taking Care Of Hair Leading Up To The Wedding

Every bride dreams of having long luscious hair on their wedding day, but it's more important to maintain healthy-looking hair. One of the biggest mistakes most brides make is that they don't cover and trim their hair leading up to the big day. Experts recommend trimming the hair, keeping it healthy, and conditioning it leading up to the wedding day.

Mistake 5: Doing Aerobics And Starving Themselves To Look Perfect

 One of my favourite clients are brides, but the mistake they often make is doing hours of aerobics and going on a no-calorie starvation diet, which has shown not to work. Experts suggest getting a vision of exactly what you want to look like in your wedding dress and backing it up with high-intensity resistance training and a low glycemic diet. This will help you get great results.
