Conversation Closed: Bridal Shops

Thanks to all the lovely ladies from some of my favorite bridal shops around town! If you wind up visiting, tell them I said hi!

A few more tips for bridal gown shopping:

  • Figure out your budget and let the shop know what that budget is – you DO NOT want to fall in love with a gown that is way out of your price range because every gown after that will pale in comparison.  Just like with every other vendor – being honest and up front is the way to go!
  • If you can go shopping on a weekday, do!  Yes, it might mean that your best friend, second cousin, Aunt Carol and others won’t be able to join you but once you narrow it down, you can always take them back.  Weekdays are much less busy for shops and you’ll get more one on one attention.
  • Be open to suggestions from the bridal shop as to styles – they see a lot of bodies and dresses and are usually quite good at matching up the perfect gown to each bride!  Also, just because you love a mermaid style doesn’t mean it will look good on you – be open to all the different possibilities and you might wind up loving a surprise!

Good luck shopping and I hope you find the perfect gown!
