So, you just got engaged! First of all, CONGRATULATIONS on what will become one of the most exciting times of your life! Let me guess, you wake up and the first thing you do is stare at that newly-blinged out ring finger and MAYBE hop onto Pinterest before you even get out of bed... don't worry, this is a no-judgement zone. As this time brings much thrill, it can also bring much anxiety and questions. Well then, bride, you've come to the right place. No need to panic when you hit that "Book Bridal Appointment" button!
Read on as we break down a few of our top suggestions for our brides when they're shopping for their dream dress...
We suggest shopping for your wedding dress around 9-12 months before your wedding date. Why so far in advance, you ask? Especially in these uncertain COVID times, production and shipping dates can change unexpectedly, as many of our gowns come from overseas. We want our brides to be the most prepared and most relaxed as possible when waiting for their dress to arrive. With that said, we understand that sometimes you're working with a tight deadline. No worries, we got you! Our team is equipped to work with you and will help you find the best choice for your specific deadline.
Bring a small and trusted crew with you to your first appointment. We get it, you don't want to leave your girlfriends, future mother in law, auntie [ insert anyone else who might get offended ] out of this special moment. We know that it can be hard to choose but we promise you, less is more when it comes to opinions on your wedding dress. We've seen WAY too many precious brides-to-be walk away from their appointments without saying yes because someone in their crew derailed the appointment with critical words or even worse, their own personal style preferences. The beauty of keeping it small at your appointment? When you do say yes, you'll say yes because YOU could hear your own voice and the support of those closest to you.
Do a little research before your appointment. We make it SUPER easy for our brides to narrow down their bridal style before they even set foot in our boutique. After you book an appointment with us, we suggest you hop onto our Pinterest page. There, you will find ALL of our current bridal, bridesmaids, and mother of the bride/groom dresses. We update it weekly when new gowns come in and we also categorize the gowns into easy to navigate boards. Pin away, darling! You will feel prepared and your consultant will appreciate that you have a sense of what you like. If you're not sure what your bridal style is, don't sweat it! That's what our team of trained professionals are there for! We will help you find the dress that checks all the boxes for you!
