Did you recently get engaged? Congratulations! You are now about to begin the exciting search for your wedding gown... You may expect the journey for the perfect gown to be long and exhausting, requiring you to visit a multitude of bridal salons, trying on dozens of dresses. But... what if you find the dress you love, within your budget, at the very first shop? What should you do? Say yes to the dress? If it seems much too easy, you may wonder how can the "experience" be over so quickly? You might ask yourself if maybe there is a less expensive version of this dress at some other discount shop. We are all aware of an entire reality television world created to entertain brides into believing the search for the perfect dress is full of drama and bargains... Remember, that is TV, not reality! If you love a dress, and the price is right, go for it! Do you honestly think that you will find an exact replica of your perfect gown at a lower price? But at what savings? All reputable, authorized dealers are contractually bound to specific pricing. Therefore, to discount a dress, the shop runs the risk of having the relationship with the designer terminated. So, the fact is that you are probably not going to find the gown 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 the many other decisions and details of your special day. Maybe your marriage will be as easy as dress shopping! Kathryn's Bridal, 3807 West Elm Street, McHenry, IL 60050 815.385.7330 www.kathryns-bridal.com "Like" us on Facebook!
