You find the dress you love, within your budget, at the very first shop you go to. What should you do? Say yes to the dress? You expected this gown search to be long and exhausting, requiring you to visit a multitude of bridal salons, trying on dozens of dresses. But you did find the dress! It seemed much too easy and you now wonder how can the "experience" be over so quickly? You ask yourself if maybe there is a less expensive version of this dress at some other discount shop. An entire reality television world has been created to entertain brides into believing the search for the perfect dress is full of drama and bargains. But you love this dress, and the price is right! Do you and your friends have so much free time that you can keep looking for a gown that is considerably less expensive than this fabulous dress? Do you honestly think it is realistic that you will find it at a lower price? But at what savings? All reputable, authorized dealers are contractually bound to specific pricing; to discount a dress, the shop runs the risk of having the relationship with the designer's line terminated. So, the fact is that you are probably not going to find the dress for a lower price unless it is a discontinued sample or a knock-off copy. In conclusion, it is up to you to decide if you want to say yes to the dress, and move on to other decisions and details required to make your day truly special. Or, do you want to confuse yourself, by continuing your pursuit of perpetual shopping, and miss the opportunity to believe in yourself, trust your gut & begin the next phase of wedding planning… Maybe your marriage will be as easy as dress shopping! by Anna Novak Kathryn's Bridal 3807 West Elm Street, McHenry, IL 60050 815.385.7330 www.kathryns-bridal.com "Like" us on Facebook! for more information on the topic of online dress shopping: http://blog.theknot.com/2013/07/22/6-techy-commandments-for-every-bride/?cm_mmc=Facebook-_-july2013-_-blog-_-techcommandments
