Temples are some of the most magnificent places on earth. But what makes them sacred is the work that is done inside of them! Dressing properly for such work is very significant so that you can focus on the sacred ordinances you are doing, rather than worrying about tripping over or adjusting your dress every 5 minutes.
When looking for a temple dress you want to choose something that you feel beautiful and unique in! There are however some additional questions I want you to ask yourself when purchasing a temple dress. Do I feel comfortable in this? Do I feel beautiful in this? Is this dress convenient for me? And these are only a few I can think of! But I do want to talk about each of these for a second:)
Comfort is THE most important aspect of all (at least I think so). Take the time to find a dress that you don't have to readjust every few minutes for years. Beautiful definitely comes in a close second! Find something flattering, and elegant so as not to feel out of place in the Lord's house. What you find appealing is different for everyone! Just make sure it is easy to focus on the work, not your appearance;) Most people buy one or two temple dresses within a 30-year timeframe, so make sure you choose something you know you'll be pleased with! There are also several convenience factors to consider. First, is it easy to travel with? I would not want to carry around a huge bag just for my dress! Second, many people going through the temple for the first time are there to be sealed. Think long term, during and post pregnancy you want your dress to have a little stretch or room for that little baby! Consider a dress that accommodates for that, or can be adjusted for those kinds of purposes!
Personally, I ADORE Brigitte's Temple Dress Collection, and here's why. I know how much time and thought she put into making these dresses perfect and stunning for temple goers. Why does she even sell them? Brigitte provides a little explanation that's included with every temple dress purchase.
"This collection is very special to me as it represents my love for my Heavenly Father and the promises I've made. Whether you have purchased this for a temple dress, it is my greatest desire that you feel beautiful, unique and loved as you put it on." <3 Brigitte
