So, you can plan a wedding, organise the venue, seating chart and decide on the menu…
So that’s why you need to make sure it’s absolutely perfect – not just for everyone else, but also yourself.
And we can safely say you’ll go through quite a rollercoaster of emotions in your search for the perfect gown…
Nothing in the shop fits you!
Everything’s either teeny tiny or needs to be held back with hundreds of clothes pegs…
During one of my visits to a wedding dress shop – the owner actually unpicked the seams of a satin dress to get it fit over my hips and thighs!! Can you imagine the embarrassment?! And to top it off – I didn’t buy the dress!
Play it safe and stick with dresses with a corset fastening – these are guaranteed to fit and they’ll make you look super svelte! Trust us – you’ll love the shape it gives.
You’re trying to find something timeless…
But after looking at wedding dresses for the past 2 hours, they’re all starting to look the same – help!
This is why you should do your research by reading magazines and checking the internet – when arranging visits to dress shops make sure they stock the styles you’re looking for!
EEK! The style you thought you wanted makes you look like a meringue
Don’t be too disheartened… but sometimes, the style you like is not actually the style that suits you best. This is why a second opinion is always a good idea! Bring someone along who you can trust and who will be brutally honest – you will thank us later.
You try on about 200000 dresses and don’t like any of them
WHY IS THERE NOTHING? ?
Try not to cry! Take some deep breaths and visit another retailer!! Take the positives out of your efforts and keep searching. It’s out there somewhere…
You’ll cry with happiness when you actually find ‘The one’
There’s actual tears. You just know when you know right?
You’ll feel like a proper bride! Imagining everyone’s reaction when you see you in this dress!
BUT! BE WARNED!!
Once you’ve paid the deposit, you’ll spend the next few months wondering if maybe you should have picked that other dress you liked too…
You’ll start deliberating with yourself and panicking over whether it’s actually the one.
DO NOT CHANGE YOUR MIND! STAY WITH IT!!
FINALLY – The big day comes and you realise you made the PERFECT choice!
And even better, your husband loves it too!
Wahoo – you’ll look back on your pictures for years to come and wonder why you ever made such a big fuss!
