Whilst browsing Pinterest I came across these pictures and I thought I would share them with you as I think they are quite useful, especially if you’re just beginning your hunt for that one special bridal gown.
Wedding dress shopping is such a special time in a woman’s life – it’s probably THE most important dress you will ever buy/wear so it needs to be right.
One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how different the dresses look when they’re actually on a person. I can’t tell you how many times a bride comes in with an idea and they leave with something different to that idea – sometimes entirely so! They look so different on a coathanger or even a mannequin or model. There is the right dress for every bride, it just sometimes takes a bit of time to find. That said, we have had brides in and out within 30 minutes because they try on just a few but are lucky to find “the one” straight away. Other brides come back to me several times before making a decision – every one is different.
I believe each dress has to be judged on its own merit – one slight change – a tuck here, a different strap, add a belt etc – all these things can change the look of a dress instantly and it’s so important to be open minded when looking for your wedding dress. Go with the flow and trust your instinct but also don’t be afraid to try suggestions made by others 🙂
Inevitably you will know in your heart of hearts when you have found the right one. You will feel complete, you’ll be able to look past any adjustments or alterations that may be needed because you will just LOVE your dress and you will look and feel amazing – but it may not be what you had in mind originally – and that’s ok! Or it may be exactly what you had in mind – and that’s ok too!
What I say to my brides is don’t over think it – try not to get caught up too much with the terms for fabrics or styles, because, granted, whilst information such as this is quite useful, you don’t have to know or understand the styles because in the grand scheme of things it doesn’t matter – in essence; the dress will find you – and when it does and you will know!
