But I Want That Bridal Gown!

Bridal gown shopping is one of the most emotional shopping trips you will ever take.  Trying on a  gown is unlike any other type of clothing you will wear.  Because of that, it is hard to tell what you will actually look like until you put one on.  One of the biggest problems that brides have, is that they see a wedding gown in a picture and immediately fall in love with it.  Let’s face it if you see it in a magazine of course the model is going to make the gown look as good as possible.  I would look great in some of those gowns too if I was that size and shape. 🙂

Then, when they actually go shopping they only have that one style in mind, and some refuse to even consider anything else.

One of the biggest pieces of advice I give brides shopping for a gown, is to try on different styles.  Even if you don’t really like it on the hanger.  Gown really look different on a person than they do on the hanger.  And sometimes unfortunately the gown you think you love, doesn’t even look good on you.  I have seen it happen many times.  A bride tries on a gown she was not even sure she would like, until she puts it on……

Brandi and James Rustic Fall Wedding

 This is one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever had the pleasure of helping with.  The rustic Fall details were beautiful.  The ceremony took place at their home in the gazebo they built at their pond.  The reception took place at a local Fire Hall.  Two of my favorite things were the window guest book and the Mr and Mrs signs as the guests left the ceremony.

The flowers were done by Elton’s Greehouse, The catering by Chanderson’s and the cake by Butterwood’s Bakery.
