Shopping for your wedding dress can come with lots of mixed emotions - both good AND not-so-good - and that’s 100% normal.  It’s OK to go into wedding dress shopping feeling some confusion and doubt! Welcome to Week SIX of the "12 Weeks of Engagement Season" BONUS SERIES from the Wedding Planning Podcast. In pop wedding culture, saying “YES TO THE DRESS” is a once-in-a-lifetime milestone full of princess moments, fancy dress boutiques, and champagne. In REALITY, dress shopping might come along with feelings of ...

  • self-consciousness,
  • pressing overwhelm,
  • conflicting thoughts about who should come along,
  • discomfort over being the center of attention,
  • feeling lost in a totally uncomfortable situation,

... just to name a few.

In the first half of today's show, we run through some quick guidelines that will help demystify the wedding dress shopping process, and put you in full control of the way your experience unfolds.

In the second half of the show, we're heading inside David's Bridal to try on dresses.  You'll hear live snippets of conversation on the pro's, the con's, the do's and the don'ts of finding your dream wedding dress.  

You can find a full recap of today’s show in a blog post that’s at www.weddingplanningpodcast.co/dress.

It’s time for a NEW WAY to create your dream wedding celebration, where YOU, your values, and your priorities are at the center of every single decision you make from now until your wedding day, & beyond.

So let’s say goodbye to unrealistic, staged images on Pinterest of weddings in the forest that cost $32,000 - in decorations alone. 

It’s time to tune out overhyped social media accounts that are pushing the $72 billion dollar wedding industry’s agenda.  

Here on the Wedding Planning Podcast, we say NO to the wedding industry’s priorities, and we say yes to a more fulfilled engagement season that starts with YOU.

When’s the last time you hosted an event for 100 of your closest friends & family, and YOU footed the entire bill? 

If you like most of us, probably NEVER - until now.  Ahhhhh yes, weddings, are, so, expensive. 

But your engagement season doesn’t have to be a nonstop feeling of dread everytime you look at your bank account, or constant gross feelings of sticker shock.  

No doubt, weddings cost a lot of money.  Here’s a quick list of some items that are keeping you up at night:

  • "$5000 florist quote - simple rose & hydrangea centerpieces - and that didn’t even include bouquets!"
  • "Went wedding dress shopping for the first time last weekend and literally the cheapest dress in the store was $2300."
  • "We can’t find a photographer for under $4000"
  • "$150 / person for beer, wine, and a simple plate of food is just ridiculous"
  • "We went with a venue that doesn’t include anything, and just found out that simple lighting and a dance floor is a $1900 upcharge from our DJ!"

If you’re starting to feel like you either need to elope or have your reception in a rec center, you’re not alone. 

95% of engaged couples I surveyed in 2021 choose “expensive” as the top 3 words that describe wedding planning.  (The others, if you’re curious, were “overwhelming” and “exciting” - I guess it just depends on the day!)

The thing about EXPENSIVE is that it’s RELATIVE to you, your priorities, and your situation.  

What if a cart at the mall was selling a bottle of water for $100?  Ridiculous, right?

What if you were in the desert, just hours away from dying of dehydration, and someone showed up with a bottle of cold water for $100 - would that be expensive?

Tune in to today's quick-hit mini wedding planning meeting for so much more!  And if you loved this perspective-shifting conversation, there's so much more:
