How to not end up with wedding dress regret
It’s not always rainbows and butterflies when it comes to pinning down ‘The One’ – in fact we’ve heard many a story from frazzled brides-to-be that they just are afraid of making a bad choice or ending up with ‘wedding-dress regret’. There’s a whole multitude of issues at play here, we’ve chosen some of the more common ones and shared a few tips as well:
The search for timeless
It’s almost impossible when looking back on images of ourselves after several years, to not think that they look dated. Your wedding photo’s are a snapshot of who and where you are in life at that time. You will always move on, change, grow or get new hair. It’s part of our evolution and we have to embrace those changes as well as embracing those snapshots of who we were ‘back then’. So release the pressure on finding that perfect, timeless gown that’s never going to date. Because it doesn’t exist. Choose what you love and feel fantastic in right now as this is who you are in the present moment.
Dress from the inside out
A dress is an inanimate object and it does not have magical powers. But it is true that the clothes we choose to wear on a daily basis can have a major impact on how we feel and it’s been scientifically proven to make you feel good about yourself. We also know that dressing up takes a lot of effort, so even though we know it makes us feel great that doesn’t mean we do it regularly.
Before you head out on that wedding dress quest take a little time to nurture your feel-good vibes, if you head into it feeling a bit crap or down on yourself then chances are that you’ll never find that one dress that makes you feel a million dollars. Because that one dress does not exist. You create the feel-good feeling from within.
So take some time to dress up more in the days and weeks leading up to your wedding dress quest. Spend a little more time pampering and preparing your outfits, take more care of your appearance and focus on the parts of yourself you really love. You’ll be creating lots of good vibes about how you look and feel and it won’t come as such a shock when you put on the ‘really dressed up‘ wedding dress.
