It can be an unfamiliar world when you have to start the wedding dress search, there seems to be so many places to go, so many dresses to see but that is exactly rule number one of the dress search! And on that note the search could start with us right here at Alice Ada Bridal in Bury Manchester…
Do not overload, too many wedding dresses can be a headache!
You may feel like you want to visit every bridal shop you can find and try every dress there is available, the problem with that is you just overload your brain and you start overthinking, and before you know it you can’t remember any dress. At Alice Ada Bridal (Bury, Manchester) we advise on keeping your daily visit to just maybe 3 shops and around 5 dresses in each shop. That way you can filter through the top ones and forget the bottom ones this keeping your decision making easy. Take your time in each dress you like to ensure it’s comfortable.
Don’t be afraid to say no, if it’s not the right dress for you!
Many brides are afraid they will offend the sales assistant if they say they don’t like a wedding dress, or accessory but they are just there to help your experience. They want you to be as relaxed and informative as possible so if you don’t like it say! Here at Alice Ada Bridal (Bury, Manchester) we want you to find the dress of your dreams, if you don’t like a dress let us know, it helps steer us in the right direction to help you find the one!
The name, there are so many beautiful wedding dress designers!
Brides look everywhere online, magazines and they focus on a certain designer. It maybe the fabric, the fit or the price point. Whatever it is there is a reason we lean towards them. However, stay from the trap of only looking at them (especially when you start your search). You may over look the perfect dress. At Alice Ada Bridal we have some wonderful designers- Mikaella Bridal, Lilly and Hayley Paige Occasions, you may be surprised to learn that most brides fall in love with the dress they tried as a “wild card”! That’s possibly because they keep looking at one style/designer and are amazed when something different looks/ feels better! Keep an open mind ladies!
What do I wear when I come to my appointment?
Don’t worry about showing up in mismatched underwear you’re getting married so who cares! We seen brides of all shapes and sizes, in all kinds of underwear so nothing will surprise us so don’t feel self conscious. We would advise to wear a light coloured underwear and preferable if it is seamless especially if you are looking for something fitted. Most wedding dresses have a corset or structure fitted to the bodice, so often there is no need for a bra, however if you don’t feel comfortable without a bra then something strapless and fitted would be best.
Who do I bring along?
It’s your search and your special day so you bring who you want! Just bear in mind that the good old saying “too many cooks…” springs to mind, everyone has an opinion…some are helpful and some just aren’t, so we advise to keep your entourage small and personal. Wedding dresses are personal, not everyone will agree so keep your opinion top priority. Remember you’re the one wearing it!
What ever you decide and where ever you go, just remember one rule………..ENJOY every minute!
