Choosing what to wear on your wedding day is a big decision for any bride. You might not have thought about it, but picking it out is a big deal for her friends, too! Of course, all you want is for the bride to be happy, so it's essential you go about helping in the right way—especially if you end up not liking her dress.
According to Vogue, however, there are a few important things to keep in mind to ensure everything runs smoothly if you encounter a dress you honestly hate. Here are our top three:
1. It’s important to read the room, and by room, I mean bride-to-be.
2. Identify what you don’t like and be specific; phrase your opinion as a question or concern.
3. It's always best to play for Team Helpful, not Team Hurtful.
It's totally okay to voice your opinion. After all, if she invited you to the appointment, clearly your thoughts mean a lot to her. Just be sure you follow these rules so everyone is happy walking out.
