Appointments Preferred

August 22, 2016

Well, this is the day that almost every girl dreams about or in some cases, dreads. This day is your Bridal Gown Shopping Day….Some brides haven’t been engaged 24 hours and they are on the phone making their appointments,  while others have been engaged for months and have dreaded making the call to start the shopping experience. We do say that appointments are preferred so that we can assure that you have a room ready for you and a consultant who will be part of your wedding team.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime selection; we are talking about the gown that you will be married in! You want someone with all the right answers so that you can have your “YES to the Dress” moment! I get giddy just thinking about it! Truly, it is just so hard for me to relate to those who hate shopping; as my husband can attest to, I am a gifted shopper!  I feel sure that somewhere in the Bible that shopping is indeed a spiritual gift! There are some brides who also have the talent of being a decisive shopper, knowing exactly what they want, whereas there are those who find making a decision as painful as a root canal. The latter would rather put it off until the pressure is too great or the wedding is too near to put it off another day.  Perhaps that is why they enlist “The Entourage”.  Let’s be perfectly honest, most of us have seen the Entourage in action as we indulged in marathons of Wedding Reality TV.  Some of the episodes could make even a seasoned shopper a little intimidated.  You know, the episodes where the group takes over the appointment like it is a competition. Sister versus BFF, Mom versus Future Mother-in-Law, or your bridal appointment becomes a family reunion including Cousin Carol and her four kids under four. As you look at yourself in the mirror you hear Negative Nancy saying with authority, “I don’t care what you like; your backside looks broad as a barn in that dress!”  Ahhh, words every bride longs to hear. As you might imagine, I am seeing a trend that when a bride brings a large party to select her gown, very likely, she will leave without her dream gown. Too many opinions sometimes drown out your own opinion.  This day is about YOU! Bring only guests who will be kind, honest, and gentle with their opinions. Leave Negative Nancy at home to babysit Cousin Carol’s four children under four!  We at Elegant Bridals are very protective of our brides and want this day to be a pleasant memory for you and your family. Remember this, either everyone has already had their day or their day is coming …this day belongs to you.  We can’t wait to help you celebrate your moment.

Joyfully,

Jane
