2 – You also must be sure of what kind of bride you wanna be.
3 – Do not try to please anyone, but yourself.
It doesn’t matter how your parents, relatives and friends expect to see you as a bride. It is your moment, not theirs. You must feel your dress truelly represents who you are, your personal style. When it feels necessary just say no. Your opinion and your hapiness is what counts.
