There is nothing wrong with visiting their shops and asking them a few questions. After all, you are not asking them to design you a dress. Ask them to recommend cuts for you. Compare that with the cuts that you have in mind. Are the cuts that they are suggesting great for your body? Do they know what they are talking about? Next thing to ask is their price range. Compare this with your budget. Can you afford to let this designer do your dress? Remember that the wedding dress is just one of the expenses that you have to shoulder.
3. Ask for recommendations
Have you attended a wedding of a friend and found the clothes really well made? Then ask your friend for a recommendation. IF you have coworkers or friends who got married, ask them for some referrals. Chances are, they will know if a designer is good or bad; if he or she was able to deliver as promised. This is important as schedules is an edict that should not be broken during a wedding.
4. Ask for advice.
You can also ask friends who got married before to give you tips on how to look for a good wedding dress designer or on what to expect on a wedding designer. That way, you can more or less study or observe the attitude of the wedding designer that you are eyeing.
5. Be firm
One of the problems of brides is the fact that they often rely on wedding dress designers to do the choosing for them. Remember that it is your wedding and you are the one with the final say on what to wear on that day. It is good to trust your designer and to put faith on their designing talent but don’t go complaining afterwards if the design does not turn out well. After all, you are the one who chose it.
