Seems so easy and cheap.

If your seam rips on the dance floor and you purchased on-line or from a chain shop, you only have yourself to blame. A designer gown may be pricier than similar versions on-line, although keep-in-mind that designers do not allow their dresses to be sold on-line, so those versions are counterfeit and a cheap version of the real thing, and can be poorly constructed, ill-fitting, and made with budget fabrics, if you even receive your gown at all.[/cata_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][cata_empty_space height=”45″][cata_custom_heading text=”A GREAT EXPERIENCE” font_container=”tag:h3|font_size:25|text_align:center|color:%23686868″ use_google_fonts=”yes” google_fonts=”font_family:Merriweather%3A300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic%2C900%2C900italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” customcss=”padding-bottom:0;”][cata_empty_space height=”20″][cata_column_text text_color=”dark”]

You don’t want to miss the tradition.
Enjoy the memory of experiencing the dress buying moment where you can touch the fabric and see the intricate detailing firsthand not in a photo. There is no greater feeling then trying on a wedding gown and seeing yourself as a bride for the first time surrounded by friends and loved ones.

It is beneficial to know what you like, but don’t be afraid to try on that wildcard. In fact, we would suggest that you always try on one wild card even if it’s just for fun. You may end up surprising yourself and bringing your dress game to new heights that you wouldn’t have been able to accomplish otherwise.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”For brides who say “I want to look good but… it’s just a dress that I will only wear once. “” tab_id=”1599764496202-877a2953-46ee”][vc_column_text]

So true!
However, on your wedding day every one of your closest friends and family will see you in this perfectly chosen dress. This dress will not have a life span, it will live on in pictures forever, passed down to future generations. Keep in mind that this dress will also be floating around social media, meaning it’s possible that your ex, the barista who gets your morning coffee, Aunt Jen’s neighbor, your new husband’s ex girlfriend, etc. will see you rocking this dress. So the pressure is on! Of course, all of these people will be talking about your dress, so let’s give them something to talk about.

You DO only wear this dress one day so …. do it once, do it fabulous!

[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Size doesn’t matter.” tab_id=”1599764496307-2f516cf7-0fc6″][vc_column_text]Don’t freak out about the wedding dress sizing.
Wedding dress sizes are vastly different from street sizes. If you are a size ten in the ready to wear world, for example, you can be anywhere from a twelve to a sixteen on planet bridal. Sounds horrible not to fit into your regular size doesn’t it? I promise you, NO ONE cares or will see what the number is, they will only care about the beautiful bride inside the dress.

What to wear on appointment day.
Can I be real with you? Those bright green panties brides have on during dress shopping day take away from the dress- ditto with the hot pink bra. All of our dresses have built in bras making a bra optional, a strapless nude is the best choice if you chose to wear a bra. Panties are mandatory with nude being the best color choice.

Will I be able to take my dress home on shopping day?
If you purchase an off the rack and pay in full, heck yeah, that beauty is ALL YOURS!

Not all brides believe the dress the most important aspect of the wedding, and we get it.
To those brides who are on a dress buying mission and haven’t always dreamed of dress shopping day and are actually a little overwhelmed or underwhelmed at the thought…. We’ve got this for you! You may end up really enjoying this experience, we will do our darndest to make that happen. Relax, trust us and let’s make a memory for you to cherish. Many times, these are the brides that get unexpectedly emotional when they see themselves in what will be their wedding dress and realize what the meaning behind the purchase is. Who knew a dress could do that?

[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Break the rules already!” tab_id=”1599764496570-3cf4ca84-2b40″][vc_column_text]Rules were made to be broken.
Emily Post’s Wedding Etiquette from 1945 isn’t cutting it anymore for today’s bride. So why not add a little color if you love the way pale pink looks on you? Modern takes, like color, on classic silhouettes work so well for today’s bride. Express your personality in a bold dress if that is what you love. Always trust your first instinct, whatever makes your heart sing is what you should be wearing. Don’t get hung up on what you believe you can and can’t wear based on your venue and what your family thinks. That cathedral veil that you think is only for church weddings not your beach wedding? That veil will float beautifully in an ocean breeze making you look breathtaking. Always, always go with what you love not what you think you should love, and never look back. … Just be you and the rest will fall into place. This advice applies to much more than dress buying day.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”What is Dream-On-It Dress Insurance?” tab_id=”1599764496719-2478cf02-9625″][vc_column_text]You love a gown, but need to sleep on it.
Elizabeth Jacobs Bride offers $200 Dream-On-It Dress Insurance which allows us to take your gown off the floor for 3 days. The $200 goes towards the purchase of your gown, or can be transferred to another gown if you fall in love with a different dress. If you decide not to purchase a gown – that $200 can be spent on any of our accessories and/or veils if used within 30 days.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”How will I know when it’s the right dress?” tab_id=”1599765543090-922c40b6-7832″][vc_column_text]So how will you know it’s the one?
Hard to explain but you will just know. Every bride expresses herself differently and feels different emotions, that is what makes her individual.[/vc_column_text][cata_empty_space height=”15″][vc_column_text]

Finding the right dress is unique to each bride.
Not all brides cry those infamous happy tears. Some brides laugh loud and dance, other brides just confidently state with a sly smile that they have found the dress, now can they see veils?
