WEDDING DRESS MYTHS BUSTED! PART 2

YOU NEED ALL OF YOUR BRIDE TRIBE WITH YOU

I’ve seen many brides arrive with a large contingent of family and friends and leave regretting it. Too many opinions can be seriously stressful for a bride and can leave her unable to hear herself think.


Pick one or two trusted, positive guests. A second opinion can be helpful - a fourth, fifth or sixth not so much. Ultimately, yours in the opinion that only really counts.


ITS NOT THE ONE UNLESS YOU CRY

Ahh, the legacy of reality TV! Shows like Say Yes To The Dress have done nothing to help brides by creating the impression that it can only be the dress for you if your entire party bursts into sobs.


I’m in my 13th year selling wedding dresses and I can honestly say it rarely happens, but that doesn’t mean that thousands of brides over the years haven’t felt amazing in the dress they chose. Remember, it’s a TV show, it doesn’t reflect real life!


IT DOESN’T MATTER IF YOUR WEDDING DRESS IS UNCOMFORTABLE, THAT’S THE PRICE YOU PAY


Absolutely not. There are enough different shapes, fabrics and sewing techniques out there that every bride should be able to find something that is both beautiful on their figure and comfortable to wear. And a specialist bridal seamstress who cares about their work can also make sure that’s a reality.


It’s a long day to be uncomfortable, and it will show in your face, so don’t compromise and make sure you get both beauty and comfort.
