Ahhh the wedding dress!
For some brides this is the single most important part of the day. Many women dream of their wedding dress from the time they are little girls. It’s a special time and moment to share with your mom and bridesmaids when searching out the perfect gown.
But…it can be a stressful time as well. It is important to bring an entourage with you who will be honest but encouraging. It is important that they don’t have too strong of opinions either, because you could end up never feeling good in any dress. It ultimately comes down to the way you feel when you see yourself for the first time in a dress. Does it feel perfect or not quite right? Will you be comfortable or sucked in all day? Does it bring tears to your eyes, do you feel like a princess?
Things to consider:
Tuxedos and Suits
Okay, okay let’s not forget there is a groom as well… many bridal shops will have suit and tuxedo rentals if you don’t want to invest in buying one. Either way, if you are buying or renting, you will need to be fitted so make sure to give a few months of time to get your suit tailored as well.
There are a couple different common ways to pick your bridesmaid dresses.
We personally like the 2nd option, because let’s face it, not all women are shaped the same. Some are super uncomfortable in a short length or a strapless. Let your bridesmaids be comfortable, they will love you for it in the end!
