I’m the first of my (close) friends to get married. Yes, at nearly 30, most of my friends aren’t married. A decade or two ago, we would be considered oddities…like a unicorn that just crossed your path, but here we are in our unwedded-ness. Understandably, there has not been a lot of wedding dress shopping amongst us…
Most of my friends and family live over 1000 miles away, so I scheduled my first dress shopping appointment alone (to my mother’s dismay).
After, my mom flew to Dallas and I scheduled an entire weekend of appointments with her, here is what I learned:

1. Have a dress shopping experience by yourself
I went to LeAnn’s Bridal by myself and it was wonderful. I was able to express what I was looking for, and what I envisioned myself in, without anyone else there to interject. It was liberating and fulfilling and I couldn’t have been more excited.
2. Wear what makes you feel good to your appointment
When you feel good, your entire attitude changes. I made it a point to actually wear a little makeup, plus clothes that I felt comfortable and beautiful in. It made me feel more confident and self-assured going into my appointment which then translated into every dress I tried on.
