"Whether I was planning my pre-wedding events or working as a stylist, I think it is so important to put the same effort into these selections. All pre-wedding events are the preparation for the big day and in fact, are held because of the wedding. So absolutely give it the attention necessary. Remember that you will be the center of attention, so choose wisely and appropriately and respect those that are hosting it for you.” Julie Eckert Clancy, is correct, as the bride you are the center of attention for more than the wedding day itself, with that in the forefront of your mind, remind yourself to prepare for them like the special events they are.

Help them embrace this journey of gaining another family member by including them in the wardrobe preparations.

Ask them what styles and colors they are comfortable in, and find something that you can both love.
