WHO SHOULD I BRING WITH ME WHEN I COME FOR MY WEDDING GOWN SHOPPING APPOINTMENT?

When shopping for a wedding gown, an entourage consisting of two or three trusted individuals seems to be the perfect mix. It’s best to keep your numbers low: it’s great to have one or two people who are close to you to give you honest opinions but bringing too many people to “give their opinion” can turn out to be a recipe for disaster that may cause you to miss out on your perfect gown. In the end, the only opinion that truly matters is yours.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME TO TRY ON GOWNS?

You may bring a strapless bra to your consultation but it is not necessary. Please wear proper/clean undergarments.   You will not be dressing alone and the gowns may not close all the way in the back.

SHOULD I BRING IN PICTURES FROM MAGAZINES OR THE INTERNET OF GOWNS I LIKE?

Absolutely, scanning magazine photos is part of the fun of wedding gown shopping, but be sure to keep an open mind. Many women see themselves in a pictured gown they thought they loved only to say, “Hmm…I thought it would be more exciting.”  Then when they try on a gown style they had not considered previously they love how good it makes them feel. Also, keep in mind that some of the best designers don’t advertise in magazines or on the internet, so don’t limit yourself only to pictures you found. Your perfect gown might be one you’ve never seen before!

WHAT SIZES ARE OUR SAMPLES?

Most of our samples are between size 8 and size 16 however, we do have a good selection of gowns 18-24. If the gown is too small or too big, we can clip you to give you a general idea of what the gown will look like in your size.

HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE TO TRY ON GOWNS?

We dedicated 2 hours for each bridal appointment in one of our Private Bridal Suites. Our Private Bridal Suites include a changing area for the bride and a private sitting area for your guest. We have VIP appointments available after hours or you can reserve a room for yourself and your guests. Call us for VIP pricing and availability. VIP bridesmaids appointments are also a great way to have a room all to yourselves and beverages and snacks are provided for each VIP appointment.
