6. Try on
Remember that you can’t really tell how a dress looks until you wear it. Wedding dresses that look wonderful on the hanger can look shapeless once you wear them, and dresses that look so-so can look sharp. While it can be hard to try on a half-dozen dresses at a store, that’s exactly what you need to do. It is a good idea to ask each store how many dresses they will allow you try on. Stores have their own policies in this area.
