Contrary to popular belief, not everyone has that "ah, ha" moment when they find their wedding gown. For some brides finding "the one" made them or someone in their entourage cry. Unfortunately for other brides, it is the visit to 12 bridal salons and settling on one of 50 or more wedding gowns because they were waiting for that feeling that never came. Does this sound like you? Don't worry! You are not alone! Plenty of brides have difficulty finding what they are looking for. Here are a few tips to simplify your search:

Carefully select your entourage

Who you take shopping with you for your wedding gown is extremely important. You need to make sure that the people joining you on these shopping trips are not only giving you valuable feedback but are also supportive of your decisions. Avoid bringing too many people to your appointment. The more people around you, the more opinions you will hear. How do you exclude a close negative friend or family member without any drama or hard feelings? Skype or Face Time are really great tools. When you have found the dress you love, call your friend or family member or schedule an additional appointment for them to see the dress you chose in person.

Take pictures of only the top contenders

1st place award Don't flood the album on your phone with pics of dresses that you didn't love. The more pictures you go back to look at, the more confusing making your decision will be. If the bridal salon you go to does not allow you to take pictures, you will forget half of the dresses you tried on by the time you pull out of the parking lot. This becomes increasingly difficult when you have visited several stores where you were not allowed to take photos. (Psst! Wonderland Bridal allows you to take pictures!)

Speak up

[caption id="attachment_1912" align="aligncenter" width="319"]6176 AD3 - Stella York Photo Courtesy of Stella York[/caption] Tell your bridal consultant what you like and don't like. If you are trying on a silhouette you always imagined you would wear on your wedding day but feel like it's not quite right, say something! Maybe it is just a matter of adding or removing crinoline or trying on a slightly different style. Many brides have a specific idea of what they want but when they try it on, it's not giving them the WOW factor. Trust your consultant to choose gowns that you may not have otherwise considered.
