5 Things to Bring Wedding Dress Shopping
It's time to go dress shopping and we want to make sure you bring all the essentials with you! Read the article below to make your wedding dress shopping fun and easy! Make sure to comment below with tips on what made your dress shopping experience one that helped you find the perfect dress for your wedding
Wedding dress shopping in the middle of all of the other crazy moments that come with planning a wedding is certainly an adventure. And while we’ve talked about dress trends and general wedding dress shopping tips (number five is my favorite, but number three is the reason I fell in love with my own wedding dress!), we haven’t had the chance to chat about something every bit as important: what to bring wedding dress shopping. It may seem pretty straightforward, but by putting a little bit of thought into what you’re going to slip on and take with you, you’ll increase your own comfort and confidence! So, without further ado, here’s what to wear when wedding dress shopping.
1. Something simple. While layers are cute and button-down shirts (oh chambray, how I love you) are fun, think about wearing something that will be comfortable, flattering and easy to get in and out of. This is especially important if you’re planning on visiting several boutiques – clothes that you can put on and take off quickly will help speed up the process. Don’t forget to slip into something you love, though. You should look and feel great when you go dress shopping!
2. Heels. Although your dress will be altered to fit the exact length you’re looking for, it’s great to get an idea of how it will look in the long run. Having heels on hand that are in height to the shoes you want to wear down the aisle will help you get a better sense of the finished product and make sure that your gown is ordered long enough. However, we don’t recommend spending an entire day of dress shopping in stilettos, which is why…
3. Flats. Save your feet and your emotional endurance for the dresses. If heels are your everyday go-to footwear, then by all means wear them – but otherwise plan to pull on some comfortable flats.
4. Cute underwear. Odds are that a bridal consultant will be helping you in and out of each and every gown you try on, so think about skipping the skimpy panties in favor of something with a little more coverage, or at least checking for holes! You want to feel gorgeous in this gown, and that starts with picking out the right underwear. Keep in mind that good underwear, or tights or Spanx if you think you’ll be wearing either one of them on your wedding day, will also improve the fit of the dresses you’re trying on!

Masters Week...it is what keeps you going during the harshest of winters, the light at the end of the tunnel. Yes Spring golf season is here now and it always starts with that catchy tune and the incredible carpet like conditions at Augusta National Golf Club.
Unlike team sports where you have an allegiance to the uniform and root hard against the rival teams, golf as an individual sport allows you to have a favorite to root for, but ultimately you are rooting for drama and competition. No place is better than Augusta National for outstanding theatre. Without Tiger in the field makes this years tournament even more intriguing, not less like first thought. I was disappointed to hear that Tiger would miss the Masters in 2014. Tiger and August is instant drama, a threat to win each and every time he will tee it up, the can he catch Jack Nicklaus record discussion, the Major drought. As I look at the field this year I wanted to look at what stories I would watch develop this season.
Here are a few stories to watch for as you get ready to settle in and enjoy this years tournament...
1. A player has not won at Augusta in his first trip there since 1979 when Fuzzy Zoeller won. Why? Course knowledge is critical to navigate around and despite picking veterans brains during a few practice rounds, it is not enough. Fuzzy played in an era when you hired a local Augusta caddie to guide you around. Players now have their own caddies that travel with them making the learning curve a couple year process. Possible rookies that could pull off a win in their maiden voyage and make history? The hot Patrick Reed, three time winner and enough moxie to consider himself a top 5 player in the World at age 23...possible, played his college golf down the street at two time NCAA Champion Augusta State. The steady and heady 20 year old Jordan Spieth would be my pick. Since coming on the scene as a junior in high school and making the cut at the Byron Nelson PGA Tour event, Jordan has been rock solid. Turning pro at 19 years of age Jordan won his first event at the John Deere and lost in a playoff to the aforementioned Patrick Reed at the Wyndham Championship. Finally to cap off an amazing season he qualified for the Ryder Cup. Not your typical 20 year old Masters rookie here folks...
2. Repeat Champion-has happened only three other times in tournament history. Jack Nicklaus in 1965-66, Nick Faldo in 1989-90, and Tiger Woods 2001-02. Adam Scott jumps to elite status if he is able to pull off the feat. Playing well coming in, history is not on his side however.
3. Phil Mickelson-Lefty is a dynamic player and plays the perfect game to bring out all the best at Augusta. A go for broke approach with no lay up in him, Phil causes his share of roars that make their way magically through the tall pines. Since 2000 he has 11 top ten finishes including three wins. Coming off a T54 last year look for Phil to make some noise this week.
How do I see this week playing out? My pick is for Lee Westwood to outduel Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson down the stretch. Westwood has played well the last four years with finishes of 2nd, T11, T3, T8. A recent swing change and the confidence of the last four years has me thinking that Westwood breaks through for his first major victory.
Who are your players that you are watching this week?
Enjoy the Masters!
