Dearest White Dress Ladies,
I want my bridal appointment to be the most perfect ever! How can I ensure that I will find the perfect dress?
The Perfectionist Bride
Dearest Perfectionist Bride,
We are so grateful for you inquiry! Simply follow our easy steps and you will be ensured to have a perfectly fulfilling appointment, ending in the selection of the most beautiful gown for your special day!
1. Come prepared: Do a little research and let us know what you are looking for! You wouldn’t go shopping for a pair of boots without knowing whether you wanted stiletto, block heel or flat; mid-calf, knee or above-the knee; leather, patent or vegan; brown, black or sassy red. Take a look in magazines and websites (especially ours!) and let us know what you like. But be prepared to fall in love with the polar opposite–many a girl in search of sensible shoes has walked out with a pair of deliciously daring d’orsays!
2. Be picky… when it comes to your guests. The wedding gown is the greatest ‘reveal’ of the big day. Why tire it out ahead of time by allowing everyone you know a say in the matter? If your lesser-knowns insist on seeing it ahead of time, simply say “I’m dying to surprise you with it–I can’t wait to see the look on your face!” Bring the decision-maker, a trusted friend and a sibling. Tell the rest to wait for the big reveal–it will be worth it!
3. Be honest. Have strong likes? Let your stylist know. Have strong dis-likes? Definitely let your stylist know. Wavering in between? Confused? Let your stylist know. These are professionals, Dear Bride! Just as your hairstylist knows how to create the perfect layers, your stylist knows how to doll you up just perfectly–with your input, of course. Have you a budget that you are ever-willed to stick to? Good for you–let your stylist know! The Mona Lisa didn’t get that smile by being a dissatisfied customer, did she? She let Mr. DaVinci know exactly what look she was going for!
4. Feel free to have fun. Find your gown should be the most special, wonderful and lovely part of your planning. Allow it to be just that! Let the stress go and be ready to laugh, cry and find the one. If you are early to your appointment and could use some relaxation, visit one of our neighboring businesses for a cup of tea or a glass of the bubbly!
Shopping for your wedding gown should be the most special, fun part of your planning. If you allow it to be just that, you will be sure to enjoy yourself and find the perfect gown.
