Wedding Dress Shopping – Why do you Need to Book an Appointment?

Take a look around your local high street and there’s probably very few businesses where you need to book an appointment, so what’s the difference when you’re shopping for a wedding dress? Why not just pop in on the off chance? Here are 3 reasons to explain why booking in advance is the recommended way to go…

ONE – Shopping for your wedding dress is exciting but can also be daunting, so it’s definitely one time in your life where you should really make the most of the personal service on offer. By booking a bridal appointment, you will ensure you have a dedicated member of staff on hand for help and support, as well as privacy to try dresses away from prying eyes. At Townhouse Bridal for example, the boutique is exclusively yours for the duration of your appointment. Make the most of the freedom to try on as many dresses as you need along with veils and other accessories while you experiment to work out what feels right for you.

TWO – If you’ve booked an appointment, you’re more likely to be ready to say yes to the dress than you might be if you just popped in at random. It’s a big financial commitment as well as an emotional one, so knowing you’re going to try dresses on a certain day at a certain time will make it easier to be prepared. You can also ensure you’re feeling your best, with freshly washed hair etc, you’ll be surprised what a difference it can make to how you feel when you’re trying bridal gowns on. Treat it like a date – you need to feel good about yourself if you’re going to find THE ONE!

THREE – Booking in advance is the best way to ensure you have the people with you who’s opinions matter the most. Don’t go over the top with numbers – more on that HERE – but if you absolutely can’t buy a dress without your mum or your best friend with you then make sure they’re there with you! Lots of brides fall in love with something much quicker than they expected to, so if you know someone can’t physically be there, at least get them prepared and ready to take a video call. I’ve seen plenty of friends and family with happy tears on FaceTime from seeing a bride beaming from ear to ear in a dress they love, so it can be a great way of including someone who doesn’t live locally or even in the same country!
