Choosing the perfect dress for your wedding day should be one of the best days of your life. But finding the perfect dress can come with a lot of pressure.

Oh Pinterest! It's a bride's best friend, right?! There are so many beautiful dresses that all look AMAZING, so how will you ever decide?? Try it on! I know....I know...I know! You "REALLY don't want a fitted dress" or you "REALLY want sleeves." But until you try it on don't rule it IN or OUT. Lots of times the style you never thought you would like is what ends up complimenting your shape the best! Oh, and I almost forgot to mention! You know that one dress you saw on the hanger and it was "Meh" at best? They are usually the prettiest ones on. I guess my point is, keep an open mind and try them all on. Heck you're already naked! :)

Ladies, we're are all girls here. So let's talk about that thing that none of us want to speak of, the right undergarments. Whether it be white/nude undies, corset bra, strapless bra, or shapewear. Choose your poison and bring it with you! The right undergarments can make a HUGE difference when it comes to finding your dress!


Is more really merrier?

As brides, we feel the need to include EVERYONE when going dress shopping, but sometimes more opinions can lead to more confusion. Include the people that know you best and will give you their opinion, but will ultimately love whatever you pick out that makes YOU feel beautiful. After all, at the end of the day YOU are the one who has to feel like a million bucks walking down the aisle.

Once you've found your dress, quit looking! There will always be something "prettier, cheaper, more sparkly" that tempts us to change our minds. I always say, treat your dress like your fiance! Once you found the man of your dreams, you didn't keep looking for another. Same advice goes for your dream wedding dress, when you find the one, quit looking!
