Must Have Items at Your Bridal Dress Appointment

Getting married? Luckily you’re in the right place! The first step is to book an appointment to shop for your dream bridal gown. Here are a few of the most important things to have with you during your wedding dress appointment.

Hair tie or hair clip
This one’s kind of a given. When trying on dresses, it can get a little warm or if you’re thinking about doing an updo for the wedding day, it will help to envision that look with the gown.

Come with an open mind!
Most brides go into their appointment with a certain vision of what they want their dress to look like, but as they try on gowns, that vision can change. Be open to that change, and open to the fact that you may fall in love with a gown you would never have expected.

Bringing inspiration pictures
During your appointment, you will have a one-on-one stylist that can help you find what you’re looking for. Bringing pictures can help us pick out dresses for your personal style. Feel free to also bring pictures of your venue, flowers, color palette or any other ideas you envision for your wedding day.

Not every wedding gown requires a special undergarment to be worn underneath. It will depend on the shape of gown you choose and your personal preference with shapewear, bra cups, etc. Most wedding gowns do already come with bra cups inside. So feel free to bring them but you might not need them!

Your Group
Whether it be your family, bridesmaids, or just your closest friends, bringing the people you value the most can make or break an appointment. What makes saying yes to your special dress so special, is having those important people by your side to support and be there for you! Be sure to check with your local bridal store to see how many people they can accommodate.
