Shopping for your wedding dress can bring out a whole range of emotions – happiness, stress, excitement. The Wedding Shoppe wants to make your experience as memorable as possible for your special day! Whether you already have a style in mind or have no idea what kind of dress you’re looking for, here are some of our favorite ways to make shopping for your wedding gown more fun.
Make an Appointment
We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to make an appointment for your shopping day. This will help avoid long waits for dressing rooms as well as giving you special attention from your very own stylist. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to make your appointment while also leaving time for alterations and shipping after you’ve chosen your dress. Once you’ve set your appointment, don’t forget to let your friends know the date to ensure they’re free.
Bring Your Friends
Shopping for your wedding dress is an exciting time. You’ll want your friends and family there to cheer you on – and also give you their honest opinions! Choose wisely as you may need to limit the number of people in your entourage. This will ensure you’re getting honest opinions, but not so overwhelmed that you feel like your choices aren’t being heard while shopping. We recommend keeping your bride tribe between 3-5 people!
One of the most fun parts of wedding dress shopping is seeing how you actually look in each dress you try! Have your friends or family you brought along take photos of each option. You’ll be able to look back on the photos and know what you like. You’ll also know which styles look great on your body and how the dress looks from all angles.
Nothing makes shopping as fun as looking your best! Don’t be afraid to pamper yourself the morning of your dress appointment. Whether it’s a quick blowout or having your makeup done, these little things can make a huge difference to self-confidence when trying on gowns. You also want to ensure you give yourself enough time to get ready before your appointment so you don’t feel rushed or stressed when you arrive.
