The One

July 7, 2011

Every girl dreams of her wedding dress and how it will look, what shape it will be and, thankfully, there are countless options to choose from. A lot of women worry about what their fiance will think of her dress, but the important thing to remember is that as long as you feel beautiful (after all, it’s the most special dress you will ever wear), your elegance will radiate and be contagious.

Be open-minded. Even though you might have one particular style or dress in mind, realize that you might fall in love with something completely unexpected. Try on things that might seem out of your comfort zone or that you think might not look good on you. You may just be pleasantly surprised by the results.

Take people who you trust to try on gowns (but limit the number). Getting opinions for your wedding dress is definitely a good thing but, in the end, the decision is yours. If you take too many people, it is easy to get overwhelmed because everyone has their own idea of what is best.

Don’t second guess yourself. If you find a dress that you love, stop looking. A wedding dress is like your fiance in the sense that when you know it’s the one, you don’t need to continue the search.

Even though it is the most important dress you will ever wear, no one will know how much you paid for it and you can easily get an amazing dress on a budget. It doesn’t have to cost a million dollars to feel like a million dollars!

Plan ahead. A wedding gown is not like any other purchase where you walk into the store and walk out with your dress. Alterations will have to be made and those take time.
