On the Third Day of Christmas

On the third day of Christmas my wedding planner gave to me...
A Wedding Dress!

You have found “the one”, that special man in your life who you are embarking on this amazing journey with. And you’ve got that beautiful bling on your finger. is time for you to find “ the one”, that perfect wedding dress! For many it is the most anticipated and exciting part of the wedding planning process, for others it is the most dreaded part of planning their wedding. Where-ever you fall in the desire to find your dress, we are here to help with a few simple tips on finding the dress for you. 
              1. Go in with an open mind. Yes you probably have an idea of what you do and don’t like; lace, no lace, strapless, straps, long, short, beaded, no beading, etc... But be open minded, try on several different styles and just never know what will be the most flattering on you, and what you will end up falling in love with. 
              2. Bring just one or two close friends and/or your mom along with you. We do not suggest bringing your entire bridal party along for the ride when you are dress shopping. You know the saying “too many cooks in the kitchen”, well if you bring any more than one or two people with you to dress shop than you are bound to have way more opinions (and differing opinions) than you really want. Also, most of the wedding dress shops are on the smaller size and showing up with an entourage can cause for a cramped experience. 
              3. Just like yesterday when we recommended you create a budget, we recommend you have a set budget in mind before you step out to go dress shopping. It is completely okay to have a range, but stay within that range and do not break your budget on your dress. In fact, we highly suggest you do not try on any dresses are that over your budget.
              4. Begin thinking about the style, look, and feel that you want for your wedding. Your wedding dress should echo this style. If you want a modern wedding you probably won’t want to wear a very traditional dress and vice versa.
              5. Have fun! Even if the thought of trying on dresses makes you cringe, have fun with it. This is (hopefully) going to be the one and only time you are a bride....embrace it and have fun!
