Narrow Down the Perfect Wedding Dress!

Let’s Talk the infamous DRESS

(Dress: Ines Di Santo) I would be lying if I didn’t say, this is likely the HIGHLIGHT of you (and your groom’s) day! Although you may feel some overwhelming decision making in your court, here are some sensible TIPS I learned from in my process! PICK THE DRESS THAT YOU LOVE What I mean is, if you love the dress, (but it doesn’t “fit” your venue) who cares! Don’t be afraid to love outside the box. It’s YOUR Day. DON’T BE AFRAID TO SAY NO Yes, I am the bride who purchased dresses! Why?! Because I felt pressured into my first dress. When it comes down to your “gut” feeling, go with it!

THE TWO DRESS RUT Stuck between 2 dresses? My advice...pick the you think your GROOM would LOVE YOU wearing! I bet there is one dress that is a little more “YOU” & “HIM” PRICE $$ Well, I am not one to weigh in one this after all....I purchased two dresses! But if you have a range, no fear! There are Soooo many dresses out there. Keep looking. TOO MUCH PINTEREST Of course I searched high and low on Pinterest for the “Perfect” Dress. But don’t go crazy! Instead focus on the fit and style YOU like when trying on dresses

ENJOY THE PROCESS Take in every moment. Invite the people you want in your life to share the decision making (& try not to please everyone, some people might be a little too vocal for you). Also, if someone can’t make it, that’s ok!! Don’t DWELL. Appreciate each moment LOOKING TO RESELL? I kept my actual dress, however I owned a perfectly brand new one (of course the store would NOT allow returns) TIP: Donate your Dress! I chose to donate my dress to THE BRIDAL GARDEN and used the TAX WRITE off! The dress went to a good cause and I made (most) of my money back (I did not have luck trying to resell online)
