Tips to Find the Wedding Dress of Your Dreams

Tips to Find the Wedding Dress of Your Dreams

You’ve found the perfect gown in that popular bridal magazine. You envision yourself walking down the aisle with all eyes on you… Gorgeous! At least, let’s hope so. Next to the venue, picking the right dress is very important for your wedding.

“Selecting the right gown depends on body type,” says Angelia Gladden, manager of Brides Atlanta in Douglasville. This premier salon, located on Douglas Boulevard, offers a stunning selection of gowns for you and your bridal party.

“You really need to come in open-minded… Try on everything that an associate pulls for you,” Angelia suggests. So, although you think that intricately beaded, A-line dress you discovered on the Internet would look fab’ on you, it may not. Try it on! You may find that another dress, which doesn’t appear to be a head-turner, looks undeniably hot on you instead!

Angelia recommends that brides educate themselves.

Choosing a Wedding Venue… Time to be Picky

Choosing a Wedding Venue… Time to be Picky

Budget set? …Check! Wedding date and time set? …Check! Ok, now it’s time to find a venue. Choosing a location to hold your wedding can be fun yet frustrating. Do you want your ceremony at a church, and then host your reception in a hotel ballroom? Or, do you want your ceremony and reception at the same place? What amenities, such as a bridal dressing room, do you want? Are you searching for an outdoor or indoor spot? I don’t mean to bombard you with questions, but consider this… Because your wedding ceremony and reception venues help set the tone, mood, and motif of your big day, it’s vital that you select a location that will make you and your hubby-to-be happy.

First on Your Wedding Checklist Should be Maintaining Good Health

First on Your Wedding Checklist Should be Maintaining Good Health

Imagining what your wedding day will be like? Well, choosing a romantic wedding venue, beautiful gown, and stylish bridesmaids dresses are great, but what about having the physical stamina to withstand the stress of juggling all the planning, budget issues, and potential family drama that may come along with your big day? Oh, and did I mention work, too? Yes, to help you endure such challenges, take particular great care of your body.

To get some suggestions on how to do that, I talked with Goodness Grocery store co-owner Sue Bain. Goodness Grocery is a natural foods and organic store located in the West Village Center on Atlanta Road in Smyrna.

Sue recommends that, in addition to exercise, we brides detox our bodies, and if you’re like me, you also want to shed a few extra pounds before your wedding day.
