How to Help Your Bride Find the Perfect Dress.

Picking out a wedding dress is one of the most exciting, and stressful, things on a bride’s to do list. So today we’re going to share with you our personal experience of helping our sister pick out her dress and provide a few vital tips.

A new term that you may not have heard: Bridesmaidzilla.
