With many brides having to postpone their weddings do to COVID-19, the questions I hear from a lot of brides is, "What do I wear if I plan on still getting married on my original date?" Obviously the most important thing in planning your elopement/Micro wedding is making sure it adheres to all CDC & State Guidelines. With times being the way they are, you want to make sure that before you spend money on an additional dress, that the elopement is legal & able to happen. Once you have all that set, then it's on to the fun part, DRESS STOPPING. You are not alone if you find yourself having trouble buying a dress of such importance online, however it is possible!
Remember that small little sewing kit at home? Now is the perfect time to grab that measuring tape & double check sizing from whatever site you choose to order from. With vast shipping delays, it is so important that the dress you order makes it in on time & fits you well!
DON'T SETTLE. There are SOOO many sites out there to find the perfect dress for you. I know that many of you may be in a time crunch, but it's okay to take a moment to search for the right one for you. Your big wedding might have been postponed for now, but you want the dress to still have the magic of your special day.
If you are in a money crunch right now, maybe explore the option of using your original dress now rather than having to spend any money on another dress. Many brides say they wish they could wear their wedding dress twice, so if that's an idea you enjoy, there is nothing wrong with exploring that!
