We have had Chic Parisien for many, many years (over 40 years – OMG!), and we LOVE our job! But over the years, we have heard one question the most: “What is the key to finding THE perfect bridal gown?” We are going to attempt to answer it… However, we were not able to boil it down to one thing. Here is our list of the top 6 tips to finding the perfect dress!
- Once you have a wedding date, make an appointment(s) at your favorite bridal shop(s)! THE dress is one of the key things that sets the overall tone for the wedding.
- You need to “Click” with the store’s staff. Selection, reputation and knowledgeable staff are key to finding THE right dress.
- Establish a budget and stick to it. Don’t fall in love with a Pie in the Sky dress!
- Prior to arriving at the Bridal Shop appointment – Do a bit of research! Browse websites, magazines, blogs… Familiarize yourself with designers and collections!
- Keep an open mind! There is nothing more fun than brides who try on different looks and styles! Surely you may be surprised as to what looks and feels the best!
- Have FUN! This is probably one of the best moments of your life… Enjoy the ride, enjoy the moment and don’t stress, that PERFECT dress is out there and YOU will find it!
