What to Expect at Your First Bridal Appointment

Finding a wedding dress is such a big decision in your life. Depending on your experience, it can be one of the best experiences or one of the most overwhelming experiences. We are here to assure you that it most definitely doesn’t have to be an overwhelming or stressful event. Below are a few tips for your first time bridal gown shopping at Ellynne Bridal.


You are officially getting married, how exciting!! While the wedding seems like it will be here before you know it, you want to ensure you have the best engagement months possible! As overwhelming as the wedding planning process can seem, don’t stress. Once you have your dress, you have already checked off a large portion of your to-do list! Here are a few key things that will help when you go bridal gown shopping for the first time.


It is always good to do a little research. You can look up wedding gowns via Pinterest, Google or even from our website designer page. Research – but don’t research too much because you never truly know what you are going to love until you try on wedding gowns. Your consultant will always ask for inspiration pictures, and a little bit about your style. It’s also good to keep in mind that your bridal style and personal style may be a little different and that is okay and totally normal!


We cannot stress this enough. The majority of the time brides will say yes to a dress that is completely opposite of what they had pictured themself in. It is great to have an idea of what you are liking but also great to keep an open mind and try on every style at first to see what you are truly liking. Pinterest pre-shopping is great however sometimes it may give you an inaccurate depiction of what the gown truly looks like. Everyone has a different body type so just keep in mind it may look different on you!


One thing that always helps you picture your full wedding look is when you look how you will the day of your wedding. We strongly suggest coming to your bridal appointment all dolled up, exactly how you would look on your wedding day. When you look good, you feel good and you’re more confident! Being wedding ready will start your whole experience off on a good note! This may be a great time to try and coordinate a trial wedding hair and makeup run right before your bridal appointment!


Why not make your first time shopping the best experience so you don’t have to feel overwhelmed shopping everywhere! A lot of brides that shop around will end up going back to the first gown they fell in love with! Save more time for celebrating and less time stressing!! This is such a special experience in your life that you only get to do once, make it the best. Here at Ellynne Bridal we want nothing more than for you to feel welcomed, listened too, and to feel like the queen that you are! We can’t wait to help you find your dream dress.
