Tips From the Experts
If you’re ready to make your dress dreams a reality at True Society, check out these must-know tips from Sue and her True Crew!
Schedule an Appointment
One of the most common questions that brides ask is when they should start shopping for their wedding dress. Sue and her True Crew recommend giving yourself enough time to shop for and alter your wedding dress, which is typically nine months to a year before your wedding day.
Once you have a timeline in mind, the next step is to schedule your bridal appointment! The average gown shipping time is something to keep in mind when deciding on a convenient date for your appointment. Your gown could take up to six months to arrive, depending on the designer. Any adjustments may take six to eight weeks once the gown arrives. That’s why the True Society bridal team recommends shopping for your wedding dress earlier, rather than later, to help eliminate any anxiety or last-minute rush costs!
Do Your Research
From bridal blogs and wedding magazines to social media platforms like Pinterest, Instagram and TikTok, there are SO many ways to find gown inspiration. By researching different types of wedding dress silhouettes and styles, you will be able to find a variety of bridal looks you love. The True Crew always encourages brides to bring photos of their favorites to their appointment!
Decide Who to Bring
Deciding who to bring with you to your wedding dress shopping appointment is almost as important as finding the dress itself! Since bridal dress shopping is such a special experience, Sue and her crew recommend bringing your closest friends, family and anyone whose opinion you value and trust the most. It’s always a good idea to call the bridal store ahead of time to determine how many guests you can bring to your appointment.
Listen to Your Bridal Stylist…and Your Intuition
Once you arrive to your appointment, your bridal stylist will be thrilled to help guide you through the wedding dress shopping experience! The True Crew always recommends listening to both your stylist AND your intuition. After all, only YOU know how you want to feel on your big day. They also believe it’s okay to say “I do” to the first dress you love!
