Here at The Collection we know that coming in for a bridal appointment can be very exciting, but it can also be a little nerve-wracking, especially if it’s your first time trying on wedding gowns for your big day. So, we thought it might be helpful to make a quick blog post about what to expect when you come to us for an appointment.
First, one of our awesome consultants will sit down with you and ask you some questions. These questions will range from when your wedding date is, how many bridesmaids you have, what your fiancé is like, what you’re looking for in a dress, budget and things along those lines. This isn’t an interview, we just want to get to know you better!
Now for the fun part, walking around our store & picking out dresses that you want to try on! We encourage listening to your consultant and maybe even stepping out of your comfort zone a little & trying something on that you usually wouldn’t, because a lot of wedding gowns look much better on than they do on the hanger. Keep this in mind!
Once you’ve picked out some beautiful dresses, it’s time to go in the fitting room and try them on. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t like some of the ones you put on, you don’t even have to show whoever you brought with you if you don’t want to, but we promise that you will try some on that look absolutely stunning on you! It’s also important to be honest & open with your consultant about what you like & don’t like, I promise you won’t hurt their feelings at all! I mean, come on, they didn’t design these dresses.
Another thing is you should expect to show the people you brought at least a couple of dresses that you try on, & also expect for everyone to have a different opinion. Remember, that’s what you brought them with you for, so don’t get discouraged if they don’t like something that you do. But, I’m sure that they will love whatever you love, because they love you.
Lastly, if you find “the one” be prepared for us to be over the moon excited for you! We can pop champagne, we can take pictures, we can do anything you want because this is your moment! Cheers!
