Bring inspiration

Whether your inspo is Grace Kelly or Solange Knowles… bring photos! Sometimes it’s hard to find the words to describe the vibe you’re going for – photos can be super helpful in communicating this for both you and your stylist!

Wear proper undergarments

Nude please! Most wedding dresses have a built-in bra or some article of support, but wearing the proper undergarments when trying all styles on can really make a difference. Not sure? Bring options!

Quality not quantity

We all love our people but sometimes less is more! Bring one or two of your closest friends or family members and choose wisely. That way you can make the decision yourself and not have too many conflicting opinions.

Be open minded

More often than not, we see brides walk out with a dress that they never envisioned for themselves. Trust your stylist, they always have your best interest in mind!

Wear makeup

We all know a little glam goes a long way. Don’t feel you have to come to your bridal appointment with your full wedding day makeup on — simply put on the makeup you’d typically wear to work, on a date, or just your everyday natural makeup look!

Have a budget in mind

If you have a dream dress in mind, make sure it lines up with your budget. Always remember to also factor in your veil or headpiece, shoes, alterations, and other accessories!

Make an appointment

Scheduling an appointment is probably the best advice we can give! Of course you could get lucky snagging a stylist when you walk in, however we always suggest booking an appointment in advance — that way you and your stylist are prepared.
