When you see your dream wedding dress – you just know it’s the one.
Read our guest blog by our spontaneous bride-to-be Laura and her decision to buy her wedding dress before she was engaged.
I have a bit of a confession to make…. I bought my wedding dress a year before I was actually engaged!
Let me tell you why…”
“Every day, I drive past a bridal boutique on my journey to work; a dress in the window there caught my eye every time I passed.
I just could not stop thinking about it – then one day as I drove by, it had vanished from the window. I totally panicked that I’d miss out on the chance to wear it, or ever see it again – so I plucked up the courage to go into the shop and decided to go try it on – crazy I know!
As soon as I put the dress on – I did not want to take it off. It was my dress. I just couldn’t imagine myself in any other!
But, I tried on one more and took it off straight away, just to shut people up.
Now all I get from other people is “are you sure you won’t change your mind? or Do you not want to go to another dress shop?” My answer is always no! I have fulfilled my dreams with my dress and I am happy with that.
I would recommend buying your wedding dress before you’re engaged, as it’s one less thing to worry about and we are now able to move our date forward a– only do this if you have an understanding partner and you’ve spoken about engagement for a while.
P.S I’m not saying go out and buy a wedding dress at the first chance you get, behind your partners back! I’ve known my husband to be since I was 13 and we’ve been in a loving and stable relationship for a while… I knew marriage was the next step for us.
Good luck finding your dream wedding dresses ladies! ?”
