Let me tell you right away, this post isn’t going to give you a magic answer. However, after years of experience observing brides say “Yes!” there are a few common themes that pop up over and over again. There is not one specific way to shop. Everyone is different; Some people know at their first appointment and some need to think about it and that’s okay. Also, some need to try a whole bunch and some only need 3 or 4. What is most important is to know that no matter how it happens for you, you should listen to your gut.
The list below includes common indicators that the dress you’ve found is the one for you! You may not experience all these, but typically a few of these things will happen and that’s when you know it's THE dress.
- You can’t stop thinking about it.
- You can picture yourself walking down the aisle in it.
- You aren’t picking apart “flaws” on the dress.
- Many times you have a feeling before you even leave the fitting room
- Tears (happy of course)
How did you know your fiance was “the one”? Probably your heart. So if your heart is telling you YES, then listen to your heart! Don’t put pressure on yourself to find the one. Let your heart guide you and enjoy the shopping experience.
