It’s wedding dress shopping day, at New Beginnings Bridal Studio (of course)! You’re SO excited, as you should be, and you’ve been doing your homework and know exactly what you’re looking for. As your guests are comfortably seated and waiting in your New Beginnings Bridal Studio private suite, your stylist is putting you in the gown you’ve stared at online for weeks. You come out of the dressing room, stand before the mirrors and your entourage, and something strange happens. Somehow, the image reflecting back at you is lacking. You have loved that style of wedding dress since you started searching…everything about it calls to you…but now that you have it on, it calls no longer.
That’s great! Really! As much as you want to be frustrated and deflated at this point, don’t be. This moment happens with many brides and just means you may have had some tunnel vision during your research. You’ve heard the saying “You never know unless you try it on”. Well, that saying holds truer than true in the bridal world, and thank goodness you had a chance to try it on in person instead of making a purchase sight-unseen. Bridal gown shopping is a process; a journey to find your perfect wedding gown. If this moment is a part of your journey, take a deep breath and take your next step toward the goal.
The stylists here at New Beginnings Bridal Studio are experts in what they do. We would love each bride to remember that open minds have more options! Just because you think you won’t like a style doesn’t mean you won’t. Many times those are the most thrilling surprises of the experience! Be willing to let go of what you thought you would like just in case you find that something different looks fabulous on you. The more open minded you are and less stuck on a picture in your head (or Pinterest page), the easier it will be to “know in your knower” that moment you have on YOUR dress! Go ahead, widen the possibilities in your mind, be adventurous, and avoid getting stuck in the tunnel.
