Ladies, we all know that the best part of planning a wedding is getting the opportunity to shop and explore all that the bridal market has to offer. Brides indulge in shopping for the perfect dress, the perfect venue, accessories, etc. What kind of shoppers are brides? We explore three “types” of shoppers and the traps that some brides fall into.
This bride is the shopper that’s had every wedding detail accounted for since the age of 5. She knows exactly what she wants, where she wants it, and what charge card to put it on. The problem with “The Visionary” is that the bride can be blinded by unrealistic ideas and in the end, may be disappointed that her fairytale won’t be exactly as envisioned.
Our tip: The fact that this type is so decisive should be applauded, but we urge that you keep an open mind and welcome suggestions.
The wedding process can be overwhelming and nerve-wracking. However, some brides take it to the extreme and let their stress get in the way of the excitement of planning. The “Neurotic” type will panic at making a decision and worry that everything will not “be on time”.
Our tip: Don’t let the stress get to you! Do your research on respective retailers and instill trust in them. There will always be something that doesn’t go according to plan, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. Your wedding will be exactly what you make of it, so release the negative emotions and leave some things to fate!
The Crowd Pleaser
The ”Crowd Pleaser” pulls at our heartstrings the most. She is the bride that gets lost in the influence of her bridal party. The bride wants to please everyone and welcomes all suggestions putting aside her vision to make others happy.
Our tip: Plan your wedding the way you want it. If you have a strong-willed bridal party, leave them at home when shopping until you have narrowed your retail selections to a few. Don’t get lost in people’s opinions! This is YOUR wedding, and you’ll never please everyone anyways. So live it up and make your vision come to life!
