You all know the saying “Physician, Heal Thyself.” In my case it’s “Stylist, Style Yourself.” Because when it comes to picking my wedding dress, I just can’t get, well, engaged. And the wedding is four months away.
When I style my bridal clients, they’ll chose THE dress after trying on as few as 2 or 3 dresses. But me? After 11 stores and countless hours online, I have yet to say “yes”—or even “eh, maybe”—to a dress.
Diagnosis? I have wedding-dress-cold-feet. These are my symptoms:
