HOW MANY BRIDES BUY A DRESS THAT'S NOTHING LIKE THEY THOUGHT THEY WANTED?
I've been helping brides-to-be find their perfect wedding dress for over 14 years, so that's thousands of you.
And what do most brides have in common? Over two thirds came with a wedding dress style in mind, and left with a bridal gown that was completely different!
Why? There are many reasons, but I think there are 2 main ones.
Firstly, the pictures that we see of dresses on models probably won't look like that on us (after all, they are very tall, very thin, photographed in some exotic faraway location and probably airbrushed) - but there is a dress for everyone!
And secondly, its very common to think that you want a trendy simple slim fit gown, but often your inner princess comes out to remind you that you can wear an evening dress style gown at some point in the future, but when will you get to wear a full on princess wedding dress again?
What does this mean for you? Be open minded. Try lots of different styles on. You may be right about what you want - but you may also join the many that surprise themselves. And if you aren't open to trying other options, you might never have found that amazing gown!!
