100% Stress-Free WEDDING DRESS Shopping Experience | show dated 12.21.22

Shopping for a wedding dress can come with lots of mixed emotions – both good AND not-so-good – and that’s 100% normal.

In pop wedding culture, saying “YES TO THE DRESS” is a once-in-a-lifetime milestone full of princess moments, fancy dress boutiques, and champagne.

In REALITY, dress shopping comes along with feelings of …

  • self-consciousness,
  • conflicting thoughts about who should come along,
  • discomfort over being the center of attention,
  • feeling lost in a totally uncomfortable situation,

… just to name a dress shopping

In the first half of today’s show, we run through a few quick & easy guidelines that will help demystify the wedding dress shopping process.  I want to put YOU in full control of the way your shopping experience unfolds.

Here’s a recap of my basic WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING TIPS:

  1. Hop onlines & browse some styles you’re interested in.  Save them to your Wedding Dress Pinterest Board.
  2. Make an appointment to shop.  (We’re headed to David’s Bridal in today’s show, and had an amazing experience.)
  3. Be open to suggestions from the sales staff, and try on a few wildcards.  You might be surprised!
  4. Work with your body shape.  There are gorgeous wedding dresses available for ALL sizes & shapes.

The most important thing about the dress you chose?   That YOU feel comfortable and beautiful.

If you find yourself feeling frustrated or burned out, take a break & come back another time.

In the second half of the show, we head inside David’s Bridal to try on dresses. You’ll hear live snippets of conversation on the pro’s, the con’s, the do’s and the don’ts of finding your dream wedding dress.

In today’s show, we reviewed FIVE essential wedding dress shopping tips, but there’s so much more to get to!

  • Who should be invited to come along?
  • What’s a reasonable budget for a dress?
  • How about traditional dress alternatives?​
