8 Must-Read Tips Before Your Bridal Appointment

You just got engaged, and you're ecstatic about finally getting to try on wedding gowns! Since this is a new experience, here are some tips to help prepare you for your first bridal appointment. 

What-to-expect.jpg

1. Time Frame for Purchasing

Many couples are opting for longer engagements these days, but don’t start shopping more than 12 months in advance. If you find your dream gown, but aren't ready to buy, your exciting moment turns to disappointment. In other words: Do not visit bridal salons until you’re ready to make a purchase. But, at the same time, don’t procrastinate. Most dresses take anywhere from six to nine months to come in. You can sometimes place a rush order if you need it in under five months, but it’ll cost you.

time line.jpg

2. Budget Decisions

It’s important to know your budget and if there is any wiggle room before you try on gowns. For most brides, this is the important factor in purchasing that dream gown. Feel free to openly discuss your budget with your consultant, so they can maximize your options in meeting your needs. Don’t forget that your budget should factor in the veil, accessories, and alterations along with the gown to avoid overspending.

3. No Returns Policy

It’s important to have the rest of your wedding details in place before you can truly shop for a gown, since many factors can influence the style of the dress. Consider your venue: is it on the beach, church, etc?  Also, the colors you choose for your bridesmaids and décor can influence whether you choose white or an off-white shade. For most bridal salons, once a sale is made, there is a "no-returns" policy in the contract because those things are being ordered specifically for you. To avoid regret in your decision, make sure that your wedding details are set in stone before saying "yes" to your dress.

4. Who to Bring With

Most brides do best with just their mom and maybe a sister or best friend. We know it’s the most important dress you’ll ever wear, and you want to make sure it’s absolutely perfect. But having 10 different opinions makes it much harder to come to a consensus—and it can bring you farther away from what you actually want. Regardless of how many people you bring, make sure that they are people who will be supportive and encouraging during this process.

5. What to Wear

Wear a nude or white pair of panties! This is usually the last thing you are thinking about the day of your appointment; however, dresses are white and will reveal any polka dots underneath. Also, wear a nude strapless or adhesive bra. Chances are you will be asked to remove the bra because most dresses are supportive enough without one, but in certain cases you may be able to leave it on.

6. Bridal Dress Sizes

When it comes to dresses, they run about 2 to 4 sizes up from your typical pants size. The majority of our samples sizes are a 10. Do notbe offended or alarmed if the dresses don’t fit you perfectly. This day is special, and it’s our bridal consultants job to enhance and accentuate the beauty of your frame in the best way that we can.

7. Taking Pictures

Pictures are great and we love when you take them; however, we encourage you to make your final decision with the dress on, and not based off of a picture. When you choose to make your decision based off a picture, you remove the excitement and wonder from the experience. You may have felt ecstatic when the gown was on, but changed your mind once you looked at the picture. Depending on the lighting, it can throw off the color, beauty, and glimmer of the gown. Taking pictures in natural lighting is a much better option. The best way to capture the experience is to take a video of you in it and loving it.

8. Have Fun

It’s totally normal to feel nervous when you come in for your bridal appointment. It’s a brand new experience for you, and it’s our bridal consultant’s job to make you feel comfortable and beautiful. If there is anything that you are concerned about before the appointment, never hesitate to call or email the salon. We are here to listen, give you a memorable experience, and pop champagne with you once you say yes to the dress!
