We know how exciting is it to shop for your dream dress. It’s a beautiful experience every bride to be should share with their loved ones. Here at Sposa Mia we love to make every appointment a memorable one and welcome those tears of joy when you find your dream dress. Because, let’s face it, it happens to even the toughest of brides to be and that’s OK!
We are so lucky to be a part of such a special day and it brings us such happiness and feeling of accomplishment when we help each bride to be through the dream dress journey.
In order for your appointment to run smoothly we recommend only inviting people who love and support you- and who understand your style, your budget. Don’t bring along people who are negative or are not looking out for your best interest. Avoid inviting people who upset you or push your buttons. Also, try to keep your group small. Things can get confusing with too many people and too many opinions flying around the salon. Leave behind people who will take control of your gown appointment.
If someone else is helping pay for your weeding dress they may want to share in the experience. They may also want to voice their opinion- however, make sure you don’t end up with their dream dress instead of yours!
Make sure that whomever you bring along to your appointment is there to help you find your dress and not just to voice their opinion about that they like. Sometimes brides come in with a huge group of people, and everyone seems to have an opinion. When this happens, it can be difficult for the bride to make a decision.
In a situation like that Randy Fenoli, star of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress, and fashion director at Kleinfeld Bridal mentions in his book (The Dress) that he asks everyone “What is your favorite flower?”
One person may say poppy, while another says roses; someone else says hydrangea or maybe calla lilies. Everyone usually has a different favorite flower. Finally, he turns to the bride to be and asks her the same question. Inevitably she answers something completely different from the rest of her group. Maybe she says “I love peonies.” At that moment Randy says to the bride to be, “So why would you walk down the aisle as a poppy, a rose or a hydrangea when you love peonies?”
He asks this question to demonstrate that everyone has a different preference- whether it’s in flowers or wedding dresses. You may certainly want to consider other opinions, but we want you to follow your preference when it comes to your dream dress.
Have you made your appointment yet? We’ll be waiting for you with some tissues!
