Wedding Gown and Proposal Ideas for the Traveler

Whether it’s for business or pleasure, traveling can create obstacles for wedding planning, and can also throw a wrench into the works when it comes to picking the perfect wedding gown, or even for the proposal from your loved one that’s on the way. Never mind that it can be tough on a relationship; regular travel can wreak havoc on any perfectly planned proposal. Here’s how to juggle both while still keeping your sanity in check.

When it comes to proposal ideas, you may be pondering why women have to worry about what’s going on in this department. While you don’t have to worry like he does, you still should consider if he has a plan in the works. Try and at least be available for your anniversary or holidays (and make special considerations for Valentine’s Day.) If you have to be away, make sure that he knows that you’ll make up for it when you are home. Just really make the effort to make things special for the two of you-you never know when a proposal may happen!

Also, see if he can get together with you for a few days at the beginning or end of a trip, and plan a mini getaway. Making time for your relationship will reinforce what you have and will make the proposal easier for him. And maybe he’ll even be super romantic and will plan something special on the trip! You have to be ready for the ultimate proposal to take place at any time.

So, how do you find the perfect wedding gown if you’re always on the go? It may be hard to plan a time to go; especially if you want to bring others with you. To try and go around this, you can plan the outing far in advance, so you can be sure the date and time are good for when you’re home and for the people that are coming. If it’s too crazy to plan ahead, consider walking in somewhere-many places won’t turn away a bride. Just check their policy beforehand.

If you really are always on the road, include wedding gown shopping into your trip. There’s nothing wrong with purchasing your dress in another city, and you can get fittings and alterations there if it’s somewhere you travel to often. If not, you can get it shipped home or can takean extra suitcase and bring it home with you-it’ll need to get pressed before the big day anyway. Even though you are traveling, wedding gown shopping should be a fun and significant part of your wedding planning, and travel shouldn’t get in the way of such a once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
