I’m just about 2 weeks from my wedding dress shopping experience. At this point, I’m starting to have so many emotions regarding this appointment. Of course I’m excited but I’m also nervous for a couple of reasons.
1. For the last little while, I’ve been trying to live a healthier lifestyle by focusing on my nutrition and exercise. Life has gotten in the way a few times, so unfortunately I’m not at the point I want to be, or even where I expected to be. I want my dress shopping experience to be a pleasant one, so I’m really trying to have a positive body image.
Any other future brides feel the same way? How did you handle ordering your dress? I’ve heard of people ordering their dress to fit them currently and then having it altered, and others who order a size or two smaller right off the bat. Any insight on this?
2. I’ve invited quite a few important ladies to attend my appointment with me and honestly, I can’t picture “saying yes to the dress” without each and every one of them there. But lately, I’ve been psyching myself out about it. Watching shows like “Say Yes to the Dress” are making me second guess having that big of an entourage. My fiancé has even said that there will be a lot of opinions.
How many people attended your dress shopping? Do you regret having that many/few? Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
Also, how many appointments should I make? I currently just have the one booked, but I’ve been debating booking another at a different store as well. Is this a good idea?
Thanks everyone! 😊
