The Core Takeaway
It is important to know what you want for your wedding. As the bride, you will no doubt be the center of attention. All eyes will be on you and the message you send out needs to be carried by your appearance.
This list is a mixed bag. Some boutiques are interested in presenting bridal beauty in all its glory. Some are interested in making your wedding seamless. You must understand the care and attention you put into your gown will reflect.
But the most important thing is to enjoy yourself. In an ideal world, you will only need to plan one wedding. And since this is that wedding, take the time and don’t rush into things. Speak with the shops and don’t be afraid to ask questions. The more you ask, the more they can tell you.
After all, the evening is yours. Yours to plan, to enjoy and to remember.
