Nicole Pellegrino took to TikTok to share the biggest mistake she made when it came to choosing her wedding dress in a video that has since gone viral with thousands of views
A newlywed has revealed her biggest wedding regret in the hopes that nobody else makes the same mistake.
Nicole Pellegrino shared the advice on her TikTok ( @nicolepellegrin0 ), where she urged brides-to-be not to share their wedding dress with anyone.
Thinking back to when she found her dress, she said that she was so thrilled that she’d found ‘the one’ that she sent a picture of it to everyone she knew before the big day.
But this proved to be a big mistake, reports Daily Star.
“Biggest wedding regret. Hear me out. Do not show anyone your wedding dress before your wedding day and here’s why,” she said.
“I was showing mine to literally anybody who asked, I’m not kidding, whether it was a friend, a distant relative, a co-worker, I was dollin photos of that dress out like hotcakes, and I regret it.”
Nicole said that she could usually tell when people didn’t like her dress by their expressions.
She continued: “People are bad liars and no matter how hard they try, if they don’t like your dress when you show them that photo, it will show on their face.
“Their true feelings will show.
“So even if you truly love your dress and feel great in it, those little opinions will subconsciously start to taint your perspective of your own dress.”
In the caption of her video, she urges brides-to-be to “grab your mom and your [maid of honour] and that’s ALL.”
“That way, on the big day, it’s a big surprise for everybody, all your bridesmaids will see it for the first time, it’s really special, and you don’t have to deal with people’s opinions,” she said.
Since being posted, the video has gone viral, being viewed more than 300,000 times, and being liked almost 50,000 times.
Hundreds of people thanked Lauren for sharing the advice in the comments, while many others shared tips of their own.
One person said: “Remember this exact thought for baby names!!!! Apparently ever told woman hates Theo and also has zero capability of faking it.”
Another wrote: “Bestie this video got to me about 36 hours too late I’ve texted the picture to about 20 people at this point,” to which Lauren replied saying: “Hahahah noooo. It’s ok don’t mind them you’ll look amazing as long as YOU love it.”
A third commented: “This is REALLY good advice.”
Someone else put: “I caught a bridesmaid showing a pic of my dress to a friend at my engagement party… almost went Sicko Mode.”
