Congratulations! You’re engaged! It’s time to find the perfect wedding dress. Brides have many emotions when looking for their wedding dress – happy, anxious, excited, scared. All these feelings are natural. It’s the shopping experience you’ve been looking forward to for years! Here are a few tips to help you have the best experience.

• Schedule no more than two appointments in a day. More than that can be confusing and exhausting. Bring photos of dresses that you like or of your wedding vision to your appointment.
• Meet with a bridal consultant one-on-one to get the bridal experience you desire.
• Be open to trying on different styles, fabrics, and necklines. Often brides purchase a dress opposite of their desired style.
• Most dresses are not custom made. You are measured to the dress manufacturer’s size chart. Alterations will most likely be needed.
• When you find the dress of your dreams – stop shopping!
