3 things to look for when trying on the perfect wedding gown

  • Always remember that the wedding dress can be tailored to fit you perfectly. Is there any feeling of frustration that irks brides more than the fact that they love the look and the design of the wedding dress that they just found, but it just doesn't quite fit them the way that they'd like? Have no fear brides-to-be! The great part about finding the perfect wedding dress is that you can get it tailored to fit you EXACTLY how you want it to. If you love the look, the feel, and the style, snatch the dress up and worry about the alterations later!
  • Is there a smile on your face when you see yourself in the mirror? Trust me when I say that this is your once-in-a-lifetime wedding dress, and if you don't smile the second that you see yourself in it, it's not the one for you. While you want your wedding dress to wow and impress your fiance and the guests at your wedding, first and foremost you need to fall in love with it as well. While that may feel like a ton of pressure to put on yourself, it's important too! Your wedding dress is your time to shine and truly feel like the princess that you are!
  • How easily can you walk in it? While it may sound like an odd thing to think about before you've made up your mind whether you love it or not, if you feel like you can't move or walk comfortably in the wedding dress, how do you think it will get any better once you add heels and nerves with it? Being comfortable in your wedding dress is super important. You don't want to have any issues at all on your wedding day, and not being able to walk down the aisle comfortably sounds like a pretty big issue to me!

While these are just a few things to keep in mind and consider when trying on a wedding dress, there are other items as well to remember. Be confident in your decision when it comes time to choose a dress!

The bottom line is that if you don't love the dress, don't buy it. Keep in mind that there are THOUSANDS of wedding dress options out there for you to view, try on and consider. Allow yourself a bit of breathing room when it comes to trying to make the perfect decision. And if you are feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the wedding dress choices out there, take a step back and breath for a bit. Who says that every single dress that you try on is going to be a winner? Truth be told, you may not like any or you may have to narrow down your choices to your top 5 and go from there once you find a groove and a dress shopping system that works for you.

Above all else, have fun trying to find the wedding dress of your dreams. Be prepared to conquer them all, try them all on, and know you've found the "one" when that smile spreads across your face!
