Black Bridal Bliss

Some brides-to-be have their wedding dress selected well before the proposal. Others, like me, don’t know where to start. It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed. Raise your hand if you’ve asked yourself: What style should I choose? What can I expect at the bridal salon? How will I know it’s the one? Relax. Finding your wedding dress can be a stress-free experience. In fact, you may just find your dream dress at your first appointment. I did. Here’s how:

With less than a year to go before my wedding day, I was ready to start trying on dresses. So with the support of my mom and bridesmaids, I made my first appointment. My consultant Natalie was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. After we talked about my ideas and I showed her a few pictures, she began pulling dresses. All of them were beautiful! About 10 dresses in, Natalie showed me the most stunning gown. I fell in love and had found the ONE! I just knew it was mine. How? I cried as soon as I took it off. To be sure, I tried on another 10 dresses. Although there were two others I liked, my mind was made up. And once looked in the mirror and I saw the ONE with the veil and tiara, it was a wrap. The moment was so emotional I cried again. I guess when you find the right dress, you just gotta say, “YES!”
