Finding the perfect dress for what is labeled as the most beautiful day of your life isn’t always a walk in the park. ‘Cause all anyone will remember is the dress, so it’s best to get it right, right?
Watching TLC shows like Say Yes to the Dress, Bride by Design or I Found The Gown makes us witness all things beautiful but also the downside of prepping a wedding day. From stress when picking the right dress over money management to handling a zillion opinions.
I’ve listed for you 5 facts if you want a stress fee making of of your big day.
1. LESS IS MORE
Don’t bring an audience, only people who are on the same level with you.
Who cares what auntie Z and uncle Y have to say about your bridal dress? Unless they pay, it’s only important what you think and how you feel when wearing that gown.
For me that means that only my closest friend, sisters and mom are allowed on this special moment.
2. BE PREPARED
Do your homework and make a mood board.
Figuring out whether you prefer short or long, mermaid or A line, classic white of daring red is something you should know in advance. Of course you can change your mind and try something different but the overal look & feel has to be clear.
Try not to get caught up in the trend of the moment, but instead focus on your personal style and what flatters you most.
3. OPEN YOUR MIND
You’re in front of professionals who handle this topic day-in and day-out, so let go of any prejudgements.
After you described them your dream dress they will translate your wishes into a real one. If they offer you something out of the box, at least try it. They dealt with the concerns of a million clients already. If they keep coming with stuff you don’t like, you’re in the wrong store.
4. SAY YES TO THE DRESS
Take your time, but make a decision.
A wedding dress overload can create enormous confusion. Too many choices means too much stress. If you can’t choose, it’s because you haven’t found thé dress yet.
Tip, go to a bridal salon that gets your style and sells your favourite designers.
5. THE TOTAL PICTURE
While your dress is definitely crucial, your makeup is equally important.
Wear a similar look when you trying on wedding gowns. And get yourself some new sassy underwear.
You want to feel confident when making such an important decision.
