So you've decided to purchase your wedding gown from a bridal salon.
If you are a busy bride you may have made this choice because the bridal store has many products and services right there in one place.
Of course you are paying more for the convenience that a full service bridal shop provides, when it comes to buying accessories.
But it may be worth it to you if you need to make the best use of your shopping time.
Usually though, it will take more than a few visits to the bridal dress shop before you find your perfect wedding dress. So dont get frustrated. It is necessary to put forth some time and effort to find the right gown for you.
If you have been searching in bridal magazines for pictures of wedding dresses, gather these pictures together to take with you.
The first thing most bridal shop consultants will get you to do is to fill out a registration card.
Later many brides wonder how they end up with so much advertising sent to them. It's from filling out the registration cards at the wedding dress shops and other wedding related businesses.
You may find the vendor advertising helpful. Filling out those registration cards can open up to you resources you may never come across any other way.
If you dont want a lot of junk mail, emails or phone calls... avoid filling out registration cards. This advice goes also for any wedding vendor not just bridal shops. Or just give as little information as possible... like your email address only or a cell phone number.
First . . . call ahead of time, to see if an appointment is needed. Some shops require one. Try to go on a week day. You will avoid the week end crowds and the sales staff will be able to spend more time with you.
What should you take on your visit? Here are the basics...
