What to Expect When Wedding Dress Shopping

Planning a wedding is one of the most anticipated moments in any bride’s life, but with so many moving parts to plan for and stay on top of, we completely understand how this process can become a stressful one. To take some weight off your shoulders, we’ve gathered some advice to help make one part of your wedding planning a little easier: dress shopping. Here are a few things you can do to make finding the wedding dress of your dreams a breeze:


Bring Us Your Inspo



Before coming in for your first bridal appointment, we recommend that you collect magazine cutouts, Pinterest favorites, and even pieces of fabric to bring along with you to our boutique. These help you to start forming opinions about the types of bridal looks you’re after, and help us show you gowns that are in tune with your personality and essence!


Consider Your Budget



One of the first questions we will ask when you come in for your first bridal appointment is if you have a budget. If you aren’t quite sure yet, then we recommend that you ask our expert bridal stylists to show you dresses from different price ranges. This will allow you to get a feel of the varying levels of quality available at different price points, and then select a comfortable budget to pursue from there.  


Never Judge a Dress by its Hanging Appeal



Wedding dresses come alive on your body! Practice having an open mind as you try on dresses, and don’t be too quick to judge a dress based on how it looks on the hanger. Share with our team the details you like, the fits you don’t feel the most confidence in, and give us every thought you have as you have them. Our ultimate goal is to make you feel absolutely beautiful on your special day, and your feedback helps us help you that much faster!
