Finding the right wedding dress is actually a lot like finding the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with. You’ll do some searching, you’ll question whether or not it’s worth the investment and you might even have second guesses about taking the leap. Thankfully though, we’ve compiled a list of ways to know when you can put down that bridal magazine and put down a deposit; here’s how you know you’ve found your dream dress.
1.) You can afford it. No matter what dress you think you might need, if you can’t afford it, it’s the wrong dress. There’s no use putting yourself in debt for the rest of your life for one night in a beautiful garment. Think about it; it’s going to be pretty tough explaining to your kids that only one of them gets to go to college because Mom “just had to have 10,000 hand placed crystals.”
2.) It matches your personality. Your dress should be a perfect reflection of who you are. If you’re a free-spirited bohemian bride, you probably aren’t going to be very comfortable in something very structured or architectural. Likewise, if you’re a funky, high fashion bride, you should hold out for something with a unique cut or embellishment. You should feel 100% like yourself in whatever you choose.
3.) It makes you feel like a million bucks. This is your day to feel absolutely amazing! You’ll know you’ve found “the one” because it will make you feel like a goddess the second you slip it on. Things you’ve been self-conscious about will melt away and beautiful curves you may have never even noticed will be perfectly accentuated.
4.) You know your fiancé will love it. Your wedding dress is your choice alone; it really doesn’t matter what your fiancé thinks of it. However, your fiancé will still love it. Not because he has a specific taste in wedding dresses, but because the right dress will be a perfect reflection of yourself, along with all the little reasons your fiancé fell in love with you in the first place. If you can imagine the look on his or her face as you walk down the aisle, you’ve probably found “the one”.
5.) You get “the feeling”. “The feeling” refers to that same feeling you get when you know you’ve found the right person. You know this is it; you have no other reason to keep searching for your dress. As soon as you get “the feeling” trust it. Doubting yourself will only create confusion. If the dress fits, is a true reflection of yourself and is in your price range, you’ve probably got it made.
