6 Reasons Why That Wedding Dress You Tried on Isn’t The One



“When it’s The One, you’ll know it.” We hear that line all the time when a bride-to-be is shopping for her wedding dress. And, in many cases, that sentiment rings true—we’ve all seen the episodes of Say Yes to the Dress where the bride knows she’s found the winning gown the instant she puts it on (and then it’s confirmed by cheers and tears from her entourage).

On the other hand, there are plenty of brides who don’t experience that immediate “this is it” reaction—not every girl bursts into tears the second she finds her wedding gown—and that can cause a lot of stress and uncertainty when it comes to actually purchasing the dress.

If you find yourself debating over whether or not a certain gown is The One, take into consideration these six reasons why you should say no. Wedding dress regret is not a feeling you want to have weighing on you in the weeks leading up to your special day, so it’s important to know when it’s time to walk away.
