You always hear about people saying yes to the dress, but what about saying no? It’s tough to say no sometimes, but it’s so essential to one’s happiness. Why say yes to a dress you’re not totally, 100% in love with? After all, you get to pick one dress… so make it a good one. Today we’re sharing three tips on when to say no to the dress, along with an exciting Real Bride update with EB Bride Blogger, Vanessa. Hint: She said yes to her dress– and she’s got some tips to help you do the same! Enjoy!
When to Say No to the Dress
Say NO to the Dress If… it doesn’t make you feel absolutely beautiful.
If the dress doesn’t make you feel totally gorgeous, guess what? It’s NOT the one! Simple as that.
Say NO to the Dress If… it’s only because of a style you always wanted
Don’t fall into the trap of shopping only for the dress style you THINK you want. Be sure to try on styles even if you don’t think they’d look good on you. You might be surprised! Vanessa, one of our EB Real Bride Bloggers, gives this advice to brides after she tried on her dresses. “My advice is to try on as many styles as possible at your first stop. I found that styles I originally loved were not really for me after all, and by your second stop you will have a better idea of what you want!”
Say NO to the Dress If… you have doubts.
If you really like a dress, but you’re not 100% sure it’s The One, sleep on it. Walk away and think it over. If you find yourself dreaming about it days later, go back and try it on again. Then you’ll know for sure.
EB TIP: How do you know when it’s the perfect dress? Well, you won’t want to take it off. :)
Real Bride Update: Vanessa Finds Her Dress!
We’re happy to report that EB Bride Blogger, Vanessa, has found her wedding dress!
Vanessa gives us some tips + an update:
“I found my dress! That was really exciting because I thought that process might be really time-consuming, but the fourth dress I tried on at the second store was The One. Also, don’t forget to look online ahead of time and bookmark photos of the styles you want. My mom printed photos of every dress I wanted to try on and placed them in the order of what I liked best — this saved so much time, since bridal appointments fly by!”
Great tips, Vanessa!
Well, what does it look like?!?
I know, we’re dying to know, too! However, Vanessa is keeping her dress a secret, and we don’t blame her– we wouldn’t want her groom to see it before the wedding! We even know where she bought it, but we think that might give it away so our lips are sealed!
