A Consultant's POV For When You're Feeling Overwhelmed...

"I ask them to picture themselves at their venue.... picture themselves walking down the aisle to their fiancé... What do they want their wedding photos to look like in 20 years?

I try to help create more of a picture in the bride's mind where she can insert herself in a dress-- INTO that picture....kind of like playing 'paper-dolls' in her mind."

-Summer, Blush Bridal Consultant/Manager

"It's ok to not like a dress or certain elements of a dress! Sometimes I think brides will offend me if they say they don't like something so they never tell me. It's important to tell your consultant what you do and what you don't like about dresses so that we can help narrow it down and pick dresses that you do like."

-Elizabeth, Blush Bridal Consultant

Our Consultants Say: "It's Ok To Say 'No'"..

"It's ok to say no. It's ok to take time and think. And it's also ok for you to say 'I don't like this dress, but I don't know why.' Not every bride will have tears when they find their gown. And you might not have 100% agreement with everyone in your party." -Summer, Blush Bridal Consultant/Manager

It's Not Like TV...

"It's not TV. Not every bride cries or gets emotional. It's OK. If you don't cry, that's normal. Some brides do and that's great! But if you don't cry there is NOTHING wrong with YOU or the dress. It's OK! It shouldn't be stressful. It should be an exciting time and an exciting moment! Don't put pressure on yourself to make it into a TV moment. We are here for the brides! We are team bride. "

-Elizabeth, Blush Bridal Consultant


"It's hard to know what to expect going into a store, when all you've seen for dresses is Pinterest and Say Yes to The Dress. Wedding dresses have gotten more expensive and I think it's tricky for brides to know what is realistic. Stylistically, each style is going to require a different budget. Something beaded and sparkly is going to cost more than a simple a-line. Fabrics, details, and shape are all going to be factors in your budget." -Cienna, Blush Bridal Consultant
