Picking your dream bridal dress can be an overwhelming experience, especially if you don’t feel like your loved ones support you. But this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to wedding planning.
In fact, according to a new survey, 40% of couples categorized wedding planning as “extremely stressful” while 71% thought it was more nerve-wracking than other major life events like finding a new job. And for 35% of the couples surveyed, it’s the details that are driving them the craziest.
But according to Allison Hanrahan, Marketing Manager at Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City, “even with the constantly changing climate, wedding postponements, and moves to smaller, more intimate ceremonies and celebrations, brides-to-be still want to feel like a bride.”
The wedding gown is probably the most important thing to make that happen. Experts say that dress shopping should be treated with particular importance because the guests you bring can make or break the experience for you.
Be careful when deciding whom to invite, and try to make the bridal appointment guest list minimal. Inviting siblings, friends, parents, and grandparents will only add to the chaos, making it harder for you to concentrate on what really matters—yourself.
