November 09, 2015

PMS symptoms during weddings

Choosing a wedding dress, the wedding dress, is one of the most exhilarating, yet daunting, experiences in a woman’s life. You’re on the search for finding the one—the dress that will forever be remembered in endless photographs and albums. Shopping for the perfect dress can be a lot of fun, but it can also be extremely stressful, especially if you’re experiencing PMS. From opinionated mothers and bridesmaids bickering between an A-line and a mermaid, the last thing you need is your PMS to make you feel even more anxious and bloated. So to help make your already overwhelming experience more manageable, here are a few tips to making sure you have the perfect wedding gown shopping experience.

1. Drink Plenty of Water Beforehand

While shopping for your wedding dress on your period is not ideal, don’t let it discourage you from enjoying the experience. Drink plenty of water before your fittings to ensure you won’t experience any excess bloating. 

2. Bring Healthy Snacks for Energy

Wedding shopping is exhausting—the back to back fittings, endless adjustments, wedding party squabbles, choosing the perfect shade of “white.” When stress levels are high, you might be tempted to indulge, but instead, bring along some cashews and apple slices from home to keep your energized so you won’t crash after the first dress you try on.

3. No Matter What, Remember You’re Beautiful

Wedding dress shopping is like finding the right man for you; you’ve got to try out the selection, narrow down your options, and then choose the one that compliments you best. You’ve already done the hardest part, finding the right man, shopping for a dress has to be easier, right? Remind yourself, no matter what you dress you choose and regardless of whether you’re on your period or not, you will be undoubtedly beautiful on your special day.
