How Many People Should You Bring to Your Bridal Appointment?
Shopping for a wedding gown is a special time for many brides, so naturally, you want to have your loved ones with you when you first lay eyes on your dream dress.
Bringing guests to your bridal appointment is common. After all, it’s always nice to get different sets of eyes and perspectives on how the dresses look on you.
The thing is, sometimes a guest- no matter how close they are- may not be the best help. Think of it this way: one friend may be the best at making you laugh when you feel down, but have a completely different taste in fashion from you.
That’s why it’s important to be realistic when it comes to choosing your bridal appointment entourage. Here are our best tips to help!
Keep it minimal
The more people you invite, the more overwhelming the appointment may be for you. You try on a dress and get 10 different reactions? All of a sudden, trying on wedding dresses has turned into a chore.
As well, bridal outlets and boutiques might have a set guest limit when it comes to appointments, so this is something you should ask first before sending out invites.
One Love Bridal Boutique has a guest limit of 5 guests for bridal appointments.
Save the party for when you find your dress
If you would love to have a large entourage, consider saving it for when you go to pick up your dress.
That way you’ve already made your decision and you can unveil the look with a fun celebration.
This is about YOU
Some brides go dress shopping on their own to avoid conflicting opinions that can lead to pressure to please others. Remember that this appointment is about you and what you like.
Don’t be afraid to go on your own, or think long and hard about the loved ones that you know you can depend on for sound, honest fashion advice.
For example- that one friend who would try on endless outfits with you at the mall in middle school, or a maternal figure who knows your personality and what you like.
Make the experience as comfortable for you as possible. Shopping for a dress is fun, but it’s also serious, and at the end of the day you want to find your dream dress, right?
