How Many People Should I Take to a Bridal Appointment?

Eek, you’re getting married! Time to get a massive entourage of close family and friends together to go wedding dress shopping, right? Woah lovely bride to be, hold your horses and read on… Date for the Diary Have you ever tried to arrange a social get together and found how hard it is to find a day and time that works for everyone? The same applies here. Whether it’s work, childcare or other commitments there’s always something that needs to be considered and the higher the number of people you’re trying to involve, the harder it will be. Don’t start the process off by stressing yourself out before you even get to the boutique! Squeeeeeeeze Just like us fabulous females, bridal shops come in all different shapes and sizes. Some are small and perfectly formed, others are large and spacious. It’s worth bearing in mind however that the larger the boutique, the higher the chances there will be more than one appointment happening at the same time.  It’s a good idea to check how many people can be accommodated, otherwise you could end up filling the room with people and restricting the amount of space you have to browse the dresses comfortably. Organised Chaos! You know...

When Should I Start Shopping for a Wedding Dress?

Wedding dress shopping. Three words that will either make you squeal with excitement or fill you with dread. Whatever your response, the reality is that you’re going to have to do it at some point, so when’s the best time? This is a tricky one, get comfy… Tick Tock, Tick Tock The closer you get to your wedding day, the fewer options you’ll have for where you can go shopping for your wedding dress. In bridal boutiques where you try on a sample and the dress is ordered in for you, it can take anywhere up to 6 months for your bridal gown to be delivered. If you already have 6 months or less before your big day, then an “off the peg” boutique like Townhouse Bridal is a perfect option. You get to take your wedding dress home the same day…job done! No waiting around or worrying that it won’t be delivered in time. Although this is a really easy way of shopping, you should still make sure you have time to look around. Leaving it til the last minute and being forced to choose a dress that you don’t really love is not a situation that anyone wants to find themselves...
