10 Things to Know Before Buying your Bridal Gown - #6

Finding your perfect wedding dress is a once and a lifetime experience for every bride-to-be. No other time in life do you put so much emphasis on a single item of clothing, so we thought we would provide our brides with a few guidelines to help them prepare for that big shopping day!

#6 Keep An Open Mind When Trying On Dresses 
As a bridal consultant, I can contest to the fact that most brides pick a dress that is completely different than what they came in wanting.

While I think it is helpful to peruse through bridal magazines and websites to see what styles you may like, you never know what you are actually going to like when you actually start trying them on. I mean really, how many times before your wedding have you worn an actual gown? Because of this, it can be difficult to know what you are going to like. So even though it may not be the dress you planned on wearing, you may be surprised by your reaction.

Many brides think that they should wear a dress that fits into their everyday personality of dress because that is what is expected from them. For example, if you are more of a simple dresser, you should wear a simple-style gown. But nothing could be further from the truth! This is your one day to be able to be something different, so if you want to be a glamorous bride; do it!  Putting on a gown, is not just about what it looks like, it is about how it makes you feel, so focus on your feelings.

So take the leap; step out of your comfort zone, and be open to a variety of styles. You never know what you may end up liking!
