Beat Wedding Dress Anxiety with These Mindful Tips!
Are you feeling anxious about your wedding dress appointment? Don’t fret- it’s totally normal for brides to feel a tang of nerves about the dress buying experience.
Will you find the right dress? Will you get overwhelmed by prices and opinions? We’ve got your back, with vital tips on how to nix the stress when shopping for the perfect sample wedding dress.
Strategize & Prepare
Dress anxiety may start to creep in before the search even begins. One way to get ahead of the feels is to simply communicate and make a plan.
Before booking your bridal appointment, sit down with your betrothed and talk about what kind of theme you both have in mind for your wedding.
Talking about the kind of venue and mood you want to create can help narrow down particular dress styles would be best for your event. For example, if you’re having an outdoor wedding in the countryside, you might want a boho off-shoulder style or lots of dreamy lace.
That way, you can go into your appointment with a plan that you can share with your bridal consultant.
Brush Up on Lingo
Once you’ve got your plan down pat, you are already one step closer to finding the best sample wedding dress for your style.
Another tip to prepare is to brush up on wedding style lingo. An added layer of stress can arise if you get to your appointment and have no idea what is going on when your stylist starts speaking about materials or silhouettes.
We’re not saying you need to be a pro at dress lingo (don’t worry that’s our job), but looking up fabrics, materials and styles you like prior to your appointment can help bring down the stress level.
Don’t Be Shy at Your Appointment
Here at ONE LOVE, it is our priority that you are able to try on sample wedding gowns in a laid-back, no-pressure atmosphere during your bridal appointment. This is why when the stress starts to seep in, we encourage the bride to voice her worries or concerns about anything dress related.
Like communicating with your partner, communicating with your bridal consultant is equally as important to reduce anxiety. Before coming to your appointment, do not hesitate to call your bridal shop with questions.
For example, if you are stressing about how many people can be in your bridal party, call and get exact numbers. Worried about pricing? Ask about deposit policies. We got your back!
