FOMO! Yup, brides tell us it is real every day. Fear of missing out!
While a study from a bridal Facebook group determined that the majority of brides only go to one store to shop, we see many brides who have 2-4 shops picked for their marathon bridal shopping weekend with their gang.
It is even worse when that very first dress stays in first place. Oh my gosh, how can that be? Let us tell you, it can be! Happens a lot. You know what you want and either picked it or described enough for a good attendant to pick it.
If you have tried on 10-15 dresses, you should have a very good idea if you have had enough choices and options. Just settle into trying on the dresses, take a moment to breathe, and determine if you feel beautiful and special enough for your magical day.
You clearly planned out this day so you have the most important people with you. They are there to support you. They are there to celebrate with you when you find that gorgeous dress. Be present, relax, and enjoy it with each of them.
FOMO is a state of mind.
One state states FOMO as ‘the uneasy and sometimes all-consuming feeling that you’re missing out – that your peers are doing, in the know about, or in possession of more or something better than you’’. Under this framing of FOMO, nearly three quarters of young adults reported they experienced the phenomenon.
FOMO can originate from unhappiness. Let us just tell you, you should never be unhappy bridal shopping. Whatever you body looks like, whatever your life is, whatever your day has brought, it’s a time to be happy, alive, and confident. Someone loves you for the exact person you are.
Stay in that love!
If you have done the research, and picked the perfect bridal store meeting your needs and wants, go with confidence your dress is there. If it turns out it is not there for whatever reason, then try again. No big deal.
Many times we see our brides relieved at our bridal appointments because they will have the opportunity to try on all the different shapes, styles, colors and materials to fully determine what they love on themselves.
A wedding dress usually is the most expressive garment you will ever wear. It is like no other!
