With Christmas and New Year mere days away, I can’t help but be excited for all of those soon-to-be brides-to-be! With December being the HOTTEST month for proposals, bridal powerhouse, Jesus Peiro have pulled together some truly handy top tips for expectant NEW brides (yes YOU!)…
As Jesus Peiro says, “when that all-important knee goes down and the little box of bling appears, you’ll need to be Insta-ready. And with January sales looming, there’s no better time to say ‘yes to the dress’.”
Tick off this checklist, brides!
#1 “Book a pre-Christmas manicure worthy of your new piece of bling.”
#2 “Post the obligatory ‘We’re Engaged’ selfie. Is it too early for a personalised hashtag? Never!”
#3 “Start browsing online for your dream dress over at Jesus Peiro here, pop on to Pinterest and create some boards, or scour the best wedding mags and bridal boutiques on Instagram for ideas and inspo.”
P.s. WARNING: Shameless self-promotion coming: you’ll definitely want to bookmark bridaleditor.com too, and @bridaleditor on Instagram here.
#4 “Find a Jesus Peiro or other wedding dress designer at a stockist near you and book an appointment.”
#5 “Set your gown budget. This includes leaving something aside for alterations and about 10 to 20 percent for shoes, veil and accessories.”
#6 “Choose your shopping squad. Even though your gal pals are squealing with excitement for you, try to limit the number you take to the appointments. Choose a few close friends or family whose opinions you can really trust.”
#7 “It’s never too early to shop! It can take on average 16 to 20 weeks from the day you place the order to receiving your dress. Leave plenty of time to shop around so you can be sure that you find ‘the one’ you really want.”
