How to know when you know... you're ready to say yes to the dress!

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

Each week we feature our blog topic on Gigi's Bridal 30 second Thursday segment on Instagram and TikTok. We'd love to hear from you!


Shopping for your wedding gown is a learning process and there is so much advice out there about how to find the gown meant for you. At Gigi’s Bridal we aim to simplify your wedding gown shopping experience and equip you with the confidence to say yes to the dress.


Here are a few signs that you have found the gown for you:


1. You have tried on a variety of wedding gown styles


Trying on different wedding gowns allows you to explore various styles and silhouettes to determine what suits you best. What you might envision in your mind may look different when you actually try it on. Keep an open mind throughout the process; the unexpected will surprise you—in a good way. By experimenting with different styles, you can discover the one that enhances your features, and aligns with your personal style.


Especially if this is your first-time shopping for a wedding gown, this can be uncharted territory. Unlike shopping for a pair of jeans or a new shirt, wedding gowns have a different look and feel which you may not be familiar with until you begin trying on gowns. Trying on different gowns helps you understand your preferences and what you feel most comfortable in. By trying on a variety of gowns, you can narrow down the options and gain a better understanding of the details, fabrics, and designs that appeal to you.


2. You have shared and had an open conversation with your stylist about your wedding day


Sharing details about your wedding day and having an honest conversation with your stylist is crucial to finding a gown that meets your expectations, wants, and needs. The stylist’s goal with this information is to ensure that you are comfortable and there are no unforeseen stressors to your wedding gown.


While you want to look stunning, also consider the practical aspects of your gown. Think about your ability to move, dance, sit, and interact with guests comfortably. Ensure that the length, train, and any additional features won't hinder your mobility or cause unnecessary stress during the day.


If your wedding has a specific theme or style, your dress can reflect and enhance that theme. For instance, if you're having a vintage-inspired wedding, you might look for a gown with lace, beadwork, or retro silhouettes. If your wedding has a modern or minimalist vibe, you might prefer a sleek and clean-lined dress. Consider how the dress complements the overall aesthetic of your wedding.


3. You will absolutely glow in the wedding gown for you


The gown for you will bring your inner confidence to the surface and you will feel that bridal glow.


Selecting a wedding gown that reflects your personal style and makes you feel the most confident and beautiful version of yourself on your wedding day. Consider the silhouettes, necklines, and fabrics that you typically gravitate towards in your everyday wardrobe. Your wedding day is a celebration of who you are, so choose a gown that makes you feel like yourself and highlights your best features.


Choosing a wedding dress is a big decision, and it's important to feel confident and comfortable in the dress you choose. Ultimately, only you can decide if you're ready to say yes to the dress. If you've found a dress that you love and that makes you feel confident and beautiful, then that gown is the right choice for you.
