BOOK IN ADVANCE
Appointments get snapped up quickly and it’s always better to arrange an appointment to ensure you advisor can set aside time to focus solely on you to help you find you perfect dress.
REMEMBER; Wedding Dresses come with a 6month order time. Allow at least 8 months before the wedding to begin dress shopping, you don’t need the added stress or want to feel rushed into making a decision about your dress.
IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU
Close friends and relatives are great companions when choosing your dress. You may want to bring friends for your initial appointment and then arrange to come back with your Mum or someone close to you once you have narrowed down the search. However you decide to do it, make sure you trust the people you bring along.
REMEMBER; Everyone has their own opinion…having a dress party with all your friends may seem like fun, but it can become very confusing if there are conflicting opinions. Bringing a maximum of 3 people will ensure that your friends stay focused on what YOU want.
It’s great to browse through glossy wedding magazines to get an idea of the type of dress you want for your big day as a starting point, but don’t set your heart on one particular dress until you have had a trying on session. More often than not Brides To Be change their mind as soon as they start trying dresses on.
REMEMBER; What looks incredible on one person won’t always look as amazing on another person and vice versa. It’s all about finding the perfect shape and style for you!
Trying on dresses for your big day should be a fun experience! Enjoy yourself and don’t put pressure on yourself to make any decisions you are uncomfortable with, you can always return for a second visit to retry any favorites on.
REMEMBER; There’s no need to feel self conscious. We have seen Brides of all shapes and sizes in their underwear or less. We’re focusing on finding your perfect dress and so should you.
TRUST YOUR STYLE ADVISOR
We are here to help, so let us! We have a wealth of knowledge and experience, so please don’t hesitate to ask questions. We will be honest with you and do our best to make you feel as relaxed as possible. Don’t be afraid to be honest with us, we will not be offended if you don’t like something.
REMEMBER; We know these dresses like the back of our hand. We know what the dresses look like off the hanger and which suit each body shape so don’t be afraid to ask for advice or to try something different.
NARROW DOWN THE SEARCH
All the dresses are beautiful and nearly all will look beautiful on you. After trying on different styles, focus on your favourites and start to look at details. This is where you need to be brutal. It’s no good ‘liking’ a dress, we want you to ‘love’ it. If it’s not right, discard it and move on.
REMEMBER; Don’t worry if you don’t know instantly that it’s ‘the one’, not everyone does. Your advisor will write down your favourites for you at the end of your appointment so you can think about them and book in again to try them for a second time.
TRY, TRY AGAIN
If you’re one of the lucky ones who ‘just know’ its ‘the one’ then congratulations! If not, don’t worry! Trying a dress on for the 2nd/3rd time with fresh eyes will really help you come to a decision.
Don't let anyone pressure you into making a decision. You have to fall in love with your dress and be sure it's the right dress for you.
PLACE THE ORDER
The order process is very simple. Your Bridal assistant will run you through the process and answer any questions you have. You will usually be asked to put down a deposit of 50%, paying the remainder of the balance on the dress arrival. We will then keep you informed as to your dress dispatch date and arrival and arrange for you to meet with a dressmaker for your alterations.
Relax and celebrate with your friends and family! Now your dress is sorted you can rest assured you will look stunning on your big day and now you can focus on planning the rest of your wedding!
