By this stage, either the dream outfit will have been found, or at a bare minimum, the exact style will have been identified, right down to the very last detail. If it's the former, then congratulations! However, if the hunt continues, then at least the options will have been numbered down and future dress shopping trips will become a lot easier.
If you are still looking, as long as you have stuck to the process outlined in this article, it should simply be a matter of visiting as many different shops as possible in an attempt to track down the ideal outfit to hire or buy. This process can take some time, but stick with it as it will all be worth it in the end.
Alternatively, if you are fed up of searching for 'the one' (or have chosen to have the dress especially designed for you) then head along to your local designer or seamstress accompanied by your chosen design. If you are a half-decent artist, you can sketch out the dress yourself or use images scrpabook images you have accumulated along the way. Whatever you choose, before you commit to anything, we strongly recommend that you take a read of the article entitled To Buy, To Hire or To Make? before parting with your cash.
We hope all this shopping advice helps!
