The process of finding ‘the one’ in dress terms can be pretty overwhelming. One minute you’ll be utterly euphoric as you fall into a frothy meringue of tulle trying on your first ever wedding dress – the next, you’re anxious: ‘it’s my second fitting, what if it doesn’t fit?’ But, panic NOT my bride-to-be, this is totally normal. I’ve certainly been there. I can remember my first dress fitting, the size I’d ordered was a little tight – mainly because it was a balmy summer day and my entire body seemed to have swelled up and I felt like I resembled a rather sweaty blancmange. I’d then left in a state of slight panic (read: total panic). When the second fitting came round, our usual British weather had returned and it was totally fine… 

So, here’s seven emotions you should be potentially prepared for… 

#1 A state of wild dress FRENZY

He’s popped the question! You’re going to have to buy a freakin’ WEDDING DRESS!!!!


#2 Anxiety… 
When you enter your first bridal boutique and are faced with rails and rails of gowns that all appear to, at first, look the same… 

#3 FEAR. 
When your Mother suggests trying on an insanely large cake-topper of gown that will most-probably drown you in tulle…

#4 Confusion… 
There are SO MANY OPTIONS…what if I don’t choose the right one?

#5 Total HYSTERIA…
When you’ve tried on 5000 dresses and still haven’t found the one…

#6 TOTAL ELATION…
…YOU’VE FOUND IT!!!!! 

#7 LOVE. 
Trust me when I say you’ll love this gown for ever…
