How To Choose A Wedding Dress
Choosing The Perfect Bridal Gown
So, the time has come for you to choose your wedding dress. You’ve done everything else, from booking the venue, caterer, cake designer and have chosen your flowers and photographer. While there are still many things that need to be done, you still have yet to lock down your wedding dress of choice. This can be a very stressful thing for any bride, but it shouldn’t be. We know how important it is to make sure that you’ve chosen the right dress in time to get the right measurements and adjustments, but this is an experience to remember, which means you deserve to relax and enjoy choosing your wedding gown. However, it’s much easier with a few tips, so here are some to help you relax, and become a little more decisive in the process.
Do Your Research
Whether you love to watch “Say Yes to the Dress” or you have scoured many a bridal mag to get an idea of what dress suits your fancy, it’s important that you at least give yourself an idea of what it is that you want. Not presenting some options to yourself can leave you vulnerable to indecision, but worst of all, it can leave you feeling lost and stressed out. Not only is this unnecessary, but it’s preventable. Bring in a few pictures of what you like to get started with your bridal gown stylist.
Choose Your Crew Carefully
Now, we know this can be extremely difficult, especially when you were raised by a village of women who have been waiting to be apart of this day. Not to mention the large group of friends that you’ve gained over the years that have also looked forward to sharing this experience with you. However, having too many differing opinions and ideas flying about the room, every time you model a dress, can create a stressful experience that wastes a lot of time. Try to keep your group small by inviting your mother, grandmother, maid of honor and very best friends. We know those other women are important too, but they’ll get to see the wedding gown on the big day.
Listen To Your Heart
Nothing is more heart-wrenching than walking out in a bridal gown that makes your mother cry. While she may see a certain wedding dress as “the one,” that doesn’t mean that it is the one for you. We know you want to make your mom proud, and let’s face it, choosing a dress for the big day is also about her. But it’s important that you, the bride, is happiest when wearing the dress. If the dress doesn’t invoke tears on your own face, then it might not be the dress for you.
When it comes to choosing a wedding gown to wear on your big day, there are a lot of factors to consider. However, the biggest factor that should remain the most important is the level of joy and satisfaction you feel when you try on the dress that you see as “the one.” If you’re still in need of a bridal gown for the biggest day of your life, come and check out our Bridal Boutique in San Diego for an experience you’ll never forget.
