So last night I went with one of my friends/clients for her final dress fitting at Mon Amie.
I have to admit…I was kind of not looking forward to it.
I wanted to see her looking beautiful in her dress….
BUT I HATE WEDDING DRESS STORES!
I walk in and am overwhelmed with all of the puffy white frilliness. I feel like my head just starts spinning and I just want to leave.
I’m completely overwhelmed by the idea of looking through them for my own dress.
Anyway, I went with my friend/client for her final fitting and she looked absolutely stunning. Her dress was perfect for her and she looked wonderful in it.
She was also shocked to find out that over the last month she had dropped even more weight!
Her dress was even looser and she felt great about how she looked in it. She even decided not to wear those spanks that we ladies sometimes want to wear to make everything look even smoother!
The point is – She looked great and she felt good about how she looked.
Her happiness was infectious and she really got me to thinking on my way home.
For one, I thought about how probably some of my best friends EVER started out as clients.
Two, I thought about brides and looking beautiful on their wedding day.
I’ve said numerous times that you can’t just start working out two months before your wedding and hope to look exactly the way you want unless you are already almost at your goal.
But it isn’t about just reaching your goal on the exact day of your BIG DAY. It is about reaching your goal right before your final fitting.
If you can look perfect on the day of your final fitting, you will feel confident about how you’ll look in your dress. Also, you can make sure your dress is perfectly fitted to your dream body.
Plus, if you still have a month or so to go after your final fitting before your big day, you’ll give your body even more time to adjust to your new-found leanness, which will only make you look better! Then the last month you can just focus on maintaining instead of stressing over cutting off those last few pounds!
So after attending my friend’s fitting, I’ve decided that the main focus of the new bridal workbook I’m designing is DRESS FITTINGS. Short-term goals should be set based on wedding dress shopping and fitting dates because the best way to make us feel confident about how we will look on our wedding day, and relieve a lot of stress, is to have us be at certain targets while we are finalizing our dress.
So while you start working toward your wedding dream body, consider when you are having dress fittings. Mark them down and set short terms goals that will have you looking perfect by your last fitting so you will be stunning on your wedding day!
P.S. I’ve decided that maybe I will eventually brave a wedding dress store to look for a dress myself….Just not yet….haha
