What To Do If the Wedding Gown is a Problem

Aug 17, 2007
Many brides face a dilemma when it comes to what will be done about the wedding gown. There may be some pressure to wear a gown that has been in the family for generations. Perhaps the well intending mother of the bride is shooting down every idea for a gown that appeals to the bride. It seems that everyone has an opinion about where the wedding gown will come from and what it should look like. If you are bride to be that is caught in this sort of a situation, here are some things to keep in mind.

First, it is important to remember that a wedding is a public celebration of a commitment between two people - you and your fiancee. The focus for the event is not what everyone else in the world wants. The desires of you and your intended spouse are of the utmost importance. After all, the two of you are the ones who will remember this day in every detail long after everyone else has forgotten all but small bits of the event. If there is a particular style of wedding dress that you prefer, then wear it.

Second, chances are that many of the people who are trying to influence your choice of a gown for the wedding are doing so with the best of intentions. They may be pushy and irritating, but they honestly are trying to help. If at all possible, try to steer them into helping with other details that are of less importance to you, or that need attention that you cannot give right now. Let some of these well wishing folks narrow down the designs for the wedding invitation for you, so that you don't have to look at hundreds of samples. Ask them to focus on finding samples for attendant dresses that go with your color scheme. Perhaps you can get one or two to begin checking out sites for the reception. Divert their attention while you move forward with your plans for the wedding gown of your choice.

Keep in mind that no matter what you do, someone is going to have hurt feelings. That simply cannot be avoided. To that end, turn down advice as politely and as discreetly as possible. The hurt will heal much more quickly if no one feels publicly embarrassed. While there will probably be one or two that will almost insists on a public showdown, keep as calm as you can, but stick to your guns.

Your wedding day should be memorable because it is the way you and your new spouse want it to be, not because it meets the expectations of anyone else. That includes your choice of wedding gown. Make your own memories in your own way, and you will have something glorious to look back on in the years to come.
