It’s Wedding Wednesday!! Can I get a woop woop!! Can I just say I LOVE reminiscing on my wedding day and these blog posts have really put a smile on my face! I feel like everyone should look through their wedding photo’s every once in a while and remember that beautiful day! Anyyywayyys, who else wishes they could wear their wedding dress everyday!?? Like seriously… I wish it were socially acceptable because this dress is and will always be my favorite dress of ALL time! Hence our blog topic for today!!
I feel like so many brides are worried about finding their dream dress, as was I! I would watch Say Yes to the Dress and think the dresses were gorgeous but super expensive and not exactly what I was looking for! I thought I would be that bride that went to 50 different stores and tried on 100’s of dresses! Well my experience was quite the opposite, my dream dress was the very first dress at the very first shop!! YUP!! I had an appointment at another shop the next day but canceled it because I KNEW this was my dress! Here are my tips to an amazing dress shopping experience!
Firstly, don’t stress yourself out! I went into this appointment thinking I’m just looking and trying on dresses, no big deal!! Because of this mindset, I didn’t put pressure on myself to find THEE dress that day!
I highly recommend doing research before your appointment! By research, I mean the type of dress you are looking for as well as dress shops! I can’t stress enough how important it is to know what you want or like going into these wedding appointments!
I strongly believe you should bring a few loved ones to encourage you as you try on dresses! Notice I said a FEW, I had four ladies with me to try on my dress and it was perfect! The reason I think you should only bring a few is because too many opinions could overwhelm you and ruin your experience! I’ll never forget walking out in my dress and seeing my Mother-in-law, Sisters-in-law, and best friend tearing up, it literally confirmed the dress of my dreams and it felt amazing!
There are millions of wedding dresses and you’re going to be choosing ONE!! I always knew I would have a ballgown and imagined feeling like Cinderella on my wedding day! I thought about it as, this is the only day you will ever wear a big beautiful gown so why not let it be your wedding day while all eyes are on you!
I totally think a wedding dress should reflect your personal style and should scream you on your wedding day! I feel like many brides think if you want a beautiful glam dress you will need to play an arm and a leg! NOT TRUE! I had this mentality going in and it made me discouraged before I even started looking! If you do the right hunting you will be able to find glam for a reasonable price (I say reasonable because no matter what these things are expensive as heck LOL).
Lastly, make sure you get AMAZING shots of your wedding dress! Remember this is the one and only time to strut yourself in a gorgeous gown so take advantage of it! My amazing photographers ‘Koman Photography’ captured my dress so beautifully! A couple of my favorite memories in this dress was the first look with my groom! Watching him burst into tears as he saw me in my dress meant the world and it was such a intimate moment! The second was twirling around like a princess with all the layers and layers of tulle (photo above).
I hope this posts gives you some advice on having the most amazing experience finding your dream dress!! See you all Friday!!
