The Most Important Thing EVERY Wedding Dress Should Have

I don’t know about you, but when I was a little girl I had a vision of what my wedding dress would look like. 

It was a strapless ball gown that was as decadent as could be, with layers of tulle that I could practically get lost in. But a funny thing happened by the time I grew up and tried on wedding dresses for the first time.

30-year-old me put on the ball gown I had dreamed about for nearly two decades. It was beautiful with those layers of tulle that had danced in my mind for so long. Yet as soon as the dress was zipped up and I stepped in front of the mirror, I realized it wasn’t me at all. 

Finding Your Style

Your taste can change so much over the years, and this was the perfect example of it. It’s not that it wasn’t a gorgeous wedding dress, it was. It’s just that I was no longer dreaming about what my love story would look like, I was in it. And I had new pages filled with experiences, wishes, hopes…and style! 

While my dream wedding dress ended up having a fitted trumpet silhouette and delicate cap sleeves (not the strapless ball gown that I had imagined) it was perfectly me. Which is the number one thing you want to remember when shopping for your wedding dress! 

It’s the details of a dress–the fabric, the neckline, the beading– that will help make your wedding dress memorable. That’s why the new “Personalize It! For Your Love Story” from Maggie Sottero is so great for helping you find the right wedding dress for YOU.
