Things to Know Before Your First Bridal Appointment

Wedding planning is one of the most exciting, yet stressful, moments in a bride’s life. At Romashka, our team is passionate about making your journey to the aisle as memorable and easy as possible, which is why we are with you through every step of the way! As such, to ensure you get the most out of your visits to our boutiques, we have prepared a few tips to guide you through wedding dress shopping. Here are the top four things you need to know before your first bridal appointment:

 

Start Early

Wedding dress shopping is unlike any other shopping experience. From sorting through thousands of options, to accounting for shipping times and alterations, finding the gown of your dreams can take much longer than you may expect. Many boutiques recommend you begin your search about 10-12 months before your wedding date, and yes, you read that correctly. It’s never too early to start wedding dress shopping!


Bring Your Inspiration

Our stylists love seeing the gowns that you can’t get enough of, so bring plenty of inspiration pictures along with you to your appointment! This will help us get a sense of your personal style and share in your vision for your dream bridal look, which, in turn, will help us show you gowns that fit your unique tastes that much sooner in your appointment. 


Undergarments

When getting ready for your appointment, we recommend that you select undergarments that are as similar as possible to what you might wear on your wedding day. Opt for nude, strapless, and seamless intimates, to prevent these pieces from distracting from the overall look and feel of the gowns. 


Guests

Bringing guests to your bridal appointment is one of the best ways to ensure you will have a fun, exciting, and lively shopping experience. There is nothing quite like being surrounded by trusted opinions to help you decide on the most important dress of your life, but with that being said, we recommend that you be very careful with which guests you invite, as well as how many. Too many opinions are just that: too many. Avoid getting overwhelmed by limiting your guest list to a few of your closest people.
