  • It’s the moment every girl has dreamed of…shopping for her perfect wedding dress!  It’s also an area I see a lot of emotional decisions being made.  For this reason, I wanted to provide a few tips to think about before  your first shopping trip so that you can avoid any regrets.
    A few things to think about before shopping:
    Have you set your wedding date?  You may prefer a different fabric or style based on season.
    Have you set your ceremony and reception location?  You want your gown to fit the style of the space {garden vs cathedral}.
    A few questions to ask before scheduling your appointment:
    Do they offer gowns in your price range?
    What services do they offer?  
    Do they provide in house alterations?  {keeps your bridal boutique accountable}
    Do they charge an additional fee to store/steam your gown?
    Also, consider cost of alterations and accessories into your gown.  Don’t let a small discount rush you into a purchase, there are plenty of gowns to choose from and you want it to be THE one!
