We hear it so much. “I’ve been shopping for my dress and I’ve found a lot that I like, but I haven’t had that ‘moment.’”
What is this “magic moment” you’re supposed to have while shopping for a wedding dress? It’s that moment where one feels that the stars have aligned, the heavens open, the goosebumps break out, and the tears start flowing. The thing is, not everyone has this “moment.” We live in a culture where we are always told that the next big thing is around the corner. We are taught to always keep looking; Looking for the next big thing, the best deal, the best offer.
When we do this, we are robbing ourselves of these magic moments. We sell ourselves short of the experience because we are so focused on the end result. It’s important to be present and let yourself enjoy the journey. The process is truly a unique experience, after all.
While choosing your wedding dress is clearly a very emotional experience, it’s also one of practicality. Each bride experiences the “moment” differently. There is no right or wrong way to choose your dress. It’s our goal as bridal stylists to listen, guide and encourage our brides along the way. We’re here to help you find a dress that fits your dreams and requests, and give you the best, and most memorable experience possible.
If you’re finding that you’re struggling “having the moment” try taking a step back. Have fun with the process, be open to trying different things, and detach yourself from the outcome. It might surprise you how quickly the moment comes.
We look forward to working with you to help you feel that moment.
