Tips For Helping Your Sister Pick Out Her Wedding Dress If She's Dealing With Severe Social Anxiety

About Me
A Daily Skin Routine

When I was younger, I didn’t think much about protecting my fair porcelain skin. I regularly sunbathed without ever dabbing on sunscreen. During the winter months, I would allow my face and hands to become extremely dry. Now that I’m starting to get older, I value my skin’s appearance much more. I’ve already started to develop fine lines under my eyes and around my mouth. I strive to do everything in my power to stay vibrant and young. My daily skin routine includes using an exfoliating facial cleanser and applying moisturizer. I also use a home microdermabrasion system 3 times each week. On this blog, you will learn how to start a daily skin routine.

Tips For Helping Your Sister Pick Out Her Wedding Dress If She's Dealing With Severe Social Anxiety

If your sister suffers from intense social anxiety, then picking out a wedding dress is going to be a big deal for her. She's going to be nervous about her upcoming wedding, and shopping for the dress (with all of the sales staff, and changing required) is going to be a major stressor. So, you should go along and help make it more relaxing. You can also plan out ahead of time some key points so that she doesn't get too overwhelmed, or embarrassed. Here are some things to plan out for when you go along with her and try on bridal gowns at a place like Eduardo's.

Hit The Bridal Store Early

You want to show up to the bridal shop early. Ideally, you should be the first women there. This serves two points. First, the staff won't be weary of dealing with many other bridal parties that show up through the day (some of whom might not be too nice to the salespeople). You don't want any of that residual bad energy to be hanging around. Secondly, your sister will feel more comfortable in a less crowded and hectic store.

Bring A Digital Camera

You want to take photos of the various outfits. She might be so nervous that she doesn't quite remember what each looked like. So, even though she tried on the dress, a few dresses later she might not recall if the cut was what she liked. A smartphone (or digital camera if you don't have a smartphone) is essential. You don't want her to have to go back and try on the same dress over and over, it will frustrate the sales staff and drag out the day which will stress out your sister.

Narrow Down The Silhouette Style Beforehand

One great idea is to select the silhouette style beforehand. This way she doesn't have to try on dresses that she knows she doesn't like. This is especially important if your sister is not super into fashion and hasn't been looking in bridal magazines at the different cuts and styles. You could create a small arrangement of photos and show her the different styles and she can show you the ones she likes, then you can speak with the saleswoman and discuss the dresses.

Don't Bring All Her Friends

Definitely don't bring all her friends. You don't want the day to turn into a Kristen Wiig comedy. The more people, the more room for something to go wrong. There is no need for a whole party to show up.

Pick Out Nice Bra and Undergarments

You don't want her to be embarrassed, so remind her she's going to be in and out of her clothes for a large part of the day, with the saleswoman helping her dress. So, if she's a fan of thongs or granny panties, she might want to reconsidered and go with something like bikini panties.
