Bridal Shower Secrets

guest at bridal showerOne of the events at a wedding that seems to be overlooked is the bridal shower. I spend many hours a week with new brides and rarely is this topic ever brought up. I decided to look them up and see what does a Pinterest bridal shower look like?

Quickly on Pinterest, you can tell bridal showers have turned in to DIY showcases. I saw elaborate backdrops, themed food stations and everything had a personal sign. It was almost as overwhelming as doing a themed wedding search. All of this makes up a beautiful setting, gorgeous to say the least. Except it seems to be missing one thing.

This one thing is what I love about bridal showers. The conversations that happened at bridal showers between mothers, grandmothers, aunts and best friends are some of the most precious moments during this wedding season. This is the time when secrets are shared and advice is given. Some of it may seem outdated but most of it is timeless. You will laugh and maybe even cry a little bit.

So my bit of advice to you going into your bridal shower planning is to make a place for conversation. A small snack, a cuppa t, a and a long sit will fill you up with so much wisdom and advice. You will feel more than prepared when you take that walk down the aisle.

How to be a last-minute bride and still keep your chill

So you want to get married and you really do not want to plan out a wedding over a year? Everyone is telling you that you cannot break the rules. Well I’m here to tell you that is a lie.

Traditionally buying a wedding gown would take upwards to nine months. NINE MONTHS! This time included shopping, ordering, waiting, waiting, waiting again and then alterations. Can you see why this take so long? We are at This Magic Moment Bridal Studio have a different take on this old tradition.

That’s where we come in as a alternative to the waiting game. 90% of the dresses on our racks you take home the day you find them. Of course you are still going to need alterations and with a little planning that can go off very smoothly. We can easily take that nine month turn around down to three months. In extreme situations It can be even shorter if you have that relationship with a seamstress set up prior to shopping.

You don’t want a dress off the rack and you want something a little more custom? We can do that too! Our line of designer gowns call Jasmine has a 14 to 6 week turnaround. Takes a little more planning but you can still be done in that 3 to 4 months time range.

So my best advice to you is to start working with an expert who understands that not everyone has a year to plan a wedding. Work with somebody who will listen to you as an individual and will guide you through the process. You’re really lucky you found that person and now we want to meet you face to face.

How do I know what style looks good on me?

I’m in panic mode as I view all the pretty wedding dresses on Pinterest because what one would be for me?  Let’s be honest, they all look great on these pictures.  Of course they do, they are models standing still and more-in-likely photoshopped too!  Be let’s get back to reality.

How do I pick a style?

If you are browsing through Pinterest, which ones do you like best?  Would it be something you have worn or would like to wear?  Is the A-line (break at your natural waistline) looking pretty to you?  Many times this can also be a princess dress–full bottom skirt.

Is it a fit-and-flare, where it comes in at the waist, hugs the hips, gets tighter below and then flares out?  Many refer to these as trumpets or mermaids.  Some flare a lot, other’s just a little.  But I like then all!

Yes, they are all pretty.  So how do you pick that style?  You try them all on!  You will discover that some you thought you may have liked you don’t on you, and vice versa.  Sometimes, you know your body, you know your comfort, and you get it right the first time.

Keep an open mind and try each style on.  Wedding dresses are like no other.  It will probably be the most expressive garment you will ever wear.  It most times isn’t your “normal” day to day outfit.  Lots of sparkle and lots of puff just may surprise you?

Lastly, know that you are perfect and beautiful just the way you are right now.  He loves you.  Make sure to love on yourself.  Find a fit that doesn’t make you conscious of any part of your body you may not like, even if we don’t see it!

Be Confident!  Be Beautiful!  Be Comfortable!  –You got this!

 

Gorgeous!
