Love, Laughter, and EVERYTHING in Between: Day 19-Wedding Gowns

Brides come in all shapes and sizes so choose a dress that flatters YOUR figure.  Limit your options by selecting a silhouette that will accentuate your best assets and conceal those things we girls like to keep under raps.  If I had to give three simple tips I'd say:

Don't Rush!
Like buying a house or a car, this is a very important step in planning your wedding. There is no need to rush out and purchase the first gown you lay eyes on. Do some research! Have fun! Enjoy the process! Once you think you've found the dress, see when that designer is having their next trunk show.  That way you'll get the dress of your dreams with at least an additional 10% saved; which is likely only your tax but something off is something off! Please don't confuse not rushing with procrastination.  Wedding dresses can take six to eight MONTHS to be delivered, so if you wait too long you may be forced to pull from samples which will also limit your selection.

As Seen on TV - NOT!
I've been with many brides that were waiting on that tear jerking moment like they've seen on "Say Yes to the Dress".  Although it did happen for some, others were simply in love with the look they saw in the mirror, the bottom line fit their budget, and they were relieved this part of the process was over.  Doesn't mean it wasn't "the one" it just wasn't their natural reaction. Those that cried got married and believe it or not, those that didn't ............ got married too!

When trying on a gown; try it OUT!!
After you've sucked it in, tucked it under and gone to the "podium" and seen all angles, make sure you can move around in the gown. Unless you're changing into another more relaxed dress for your reception - you want to make sure that you can sit, walk around in, and most importantly DANCE in your gorgeous gown.
