Our Top Tips on How to Prepare for
Wedding Dress Shopping
We may be biased, but we think shopping for your wedding dress is one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning! A long day of trying on wedding dresses can sometimes begin to feel overwhelming. We are here to make this experience fun, comfortable, and memorable. We bring a customized experience directly to you so you can find your dream dress!
Below are our top tips on how to make the celebration seamless and stress-free.
1. Do a Little Research
Search online, start a Pinterest board, or look through wedding magazines to see what styles, shapes, textures, etc. you might like.
Once you begin to try on wedding dresses, try to keep an open mind. It will start to get easier to narrow down the gowns, shapes, and styles you love most. And, you might surprise yourself!
2. Decide on a Budget
Decide on a budget you are comfortable with and try on dresses within that budget. Don’t break your heart by trying on a dress above your budget, that you won’t be able to buy! Also keep in mind additional costs like alterations (averaging from $300 – $600) and day-of accessories to complete your look.
3. Wear the Right Undergarments
We always recommend a nude strapless bra and thong, so you have no distracting colors or straps showing. Bring along spanx too, if you have them! Ultimately, wear what you think you will be comfortable in on your wedding day.
4. Choose Your Crew
As a traveling bridal shop, we allow you to have as many or as littles guests as you please! We recommend inviting the people you feel most comfortable around and whose opinions matter most to you.
5. Eat Something
Avoid the hangry feeling and eat before you start. The best part about shopping for your wedding dress in your own living room? Getting to have snacks & bubbly on hand! Take a mid-appointment break to hang with your besties and refuel.
6. Get Ready to Have Fun!
We are here to make your wedding dress shopping experience fun & memorable. Get cozy in your living room with your favorite people, pop some bubbly, and we will take care of the rest!
