What you should know before you shop for your wedding dress...

You've probably been dreaming about your wedding for months, even years, and the moment has finally come...your significant other proposed and you said YES! Now it's time to start wedding planning!

Many new brides are unsure of wha to expect, this is new territory after all. Once you have your wedding venue and date set, it's time to start thinking about your wedding dress. Here are our top tips for shopping for your wedding dress to make the most out of your experience.

Schedule an appointment

At one of our scheduled bridal appointments, you will get a personal Bridal Consultant that can help you find your dream dress!

Give yourself time

The rumors are true! Designer bridal gowns do take about 4-6 months to arrive once ordered so make sure that you are not leaving it to the last minute.

Set a budget

Make sure that you know how much you are comfortable spending because you don’t want to fall in love with a gown that you can’t afford! We always work to be respectful of your budget because it is about finding the dress that is the best for YOU and that includes the price tag. Don't forget to factor in additional costs such as alterations or shipping out of state.

Get to know your bridal style

Don’t be afraid to look in bridal magazines or browse Pinterest for dresses that you love. This will give you an idea of what you might be interested in! Be open minded - a lot of brides end up falling in love with something completely opposite of wha they originally envisioned!

Who to bring?

Anyone that is going to love and support you through the process. Valuing their opinion is a plus as well! Although we do always welcome larger parties, we recommend bringing 2 or 3 close friends or family members. Anything more than that can get overwhelming.

Bring your inspiration

We love to see photos and Pins of styles that you love so bring ‘em!

Don't over think it

We have a saying here, "Finding your wedding dress is like finding your fiance...when you find the one stop looking!" It is so easy to say you want to look at just one more store, but honestly, it gets overwhelming and it will take away from the feeling of finding "the one."


Shopping for your wedding dress is supposed to be fun so relax and enjoy it!

Now it's time to set up your appointment so you can say YES to your dress!
