4 Wedding Dress Shopping Misconceptions

by LJM in


There are some misconceptions around wedding dress shopping, and we’re here to help! Let’s debunk a few of them + get you bridal appointment-ready:

1 // You have to go to multiple stores

Most brides find their dress at the first wedding dress shop they visit! Scheduling too many appointments can be overwhelming and exhausting – getting in and out of wedding gowns is a lot of work. If you feel great in the gown, it has everything you asked for and you don’t want to take it off, chances are you’ve found THE one!

2 // You have to shop with a big group

You don’t need to bring an entourage of people with you to your appointment. In fact, too many opinions can quickly become overwhelming and distract from the opinion that matters most: yours. We recommend bringing along 1-3 people!

3 // You have to wear white on your wedding day

There are so many color options when it comes to your wedding dress – white is just one of them! Blush, blue, black or anything in between – It should be something you truly love and feel comfortable in.

4 // You’ll cry when you find THE one

While finding your dream dress is such a special moment, not everyone cries! How our brides respond to THE dress is very 50/50 – some brides have lots of emotion, and others simply feel aisle-ready in that dress. Both reactions are valid, and both are worth celebrating!
