Should You Bring Children to Your Sample Wedding Dress Appointment?
So the date is set and you are ready to embark on your dress journey! For brides who double as moms, the question of shopping with your children may arise.
If you are wondering whether you should bring your children along with you to your appointments, here are some considerations that can help you make the best decision.
What are the Rules Regarding Kids?
First, when making your appointment with your dress boutique, make sure to inquire about children at the appointment and whether there is an age limit or any other protocol.
Many bridal shops- One Love included- would recommend leaving the kids at home since this is a focused occasion.
However, we understand that circumstances arise and that might not be an option. In that case, make sure to let us know children will be present for the appointment when relaying your guest list.
This Special Time is About You
When it comes to wedding dress shopping, appointments can be long and ultimately bride-focused.
If you have younger children, bringing them along to your appointment may not be ideal. Not to say that your child is a distraction, but all moms know how it goes. Bringing your younger child may elongate the processes of finding the right gown, due to the fact that you still need to cater to their needs as well as yours.
Younger children can also add a distraction not only for you but for other brides with matching appointment times. Only you know the temperament of your child, so keep this in mind when making your decision.
As for older children, there is really no harm in bringing them. The opinion of your child could serve as useful! Again, mother knows best in this case, if you have an older child that is dedicated to the dress search, bring them along.
