It can be super fun to shop for your elopement or wedding dress, but also suuuuper frustrating if you don’t really know what you’re looking for.
If you hate heels and tight dresses, maybe steer clear of that skin tight mermaid gown, no matter how pretty you think it is! Be true to you and choose something that reflects your style. You’ll be SO happy on the day of your wedding that you did.
I’ve seen some absolutely GORGEOUS gowns for several thousand dollars, and I’ve seen equally beautiful gowns for a fraction of the price.
That way you’ll know exactly what you want to spend before you start shopping. (Trust me on this one!)
I know this may sound a little deep. But it’s easy to fall into overwhelm when you suddenly have to become an event planner.
Take a breath, and go back to the why behind your upcoming marriage when you feel the calm starting to slip. It will help steer you back to what’s important.
Is it just the two of you? Is it a huge party with all of your friends and family?
Having a clear picture of how you want your wedding day to unfold will give you SO much clarity about all of the other little details.
Forget about what other people are doing, or what you think a wedding “should” be. Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and visualize your wedding… getting ready, the exchange of vows, spending time with your boo… you might even end up having a vision of you in the perfect dress. 😉
