Today we're hitting the road for a real-time wedding dress shopping adventure!

Before we head into the store, we're going to hang out in the studio for a few minutes to review some of my top wedding dress shopping tips. 

You can find a full recap of today’s show in a blog post that’s at

To start our shopping trip, let's acknowledge that shopping for a 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!

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 a few 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.  

We reviewed FIVE essential dress shopping tips, but there’s so much more to get to! 

  • Who should be invited to come along? 
  • What’s a reasonable budget for a dress? 
  • How about traditional dress alternatives? 

The bonus version of today’s show that addresses all of these questions, including my number ONE piece of advice for a successful shopping experience is available right NOW within my digital wedding planning package, The VAULT.
