Hey lovelies! It’s us, your bridal consultants and we are ready to help you tie the knot in your dream gown - exciting, we know! But before we start popping champagne and celebrating your big day, we decided to compile a list of all the things we want you to know about shopping for you gown.
Here are 7 Things Your Bridal Consultant Wants You to Know;
By: Tanja Helmer
1. You’re the boss
It’s appointment day! We can’t wait for you to walk through our door and introduce yourself, and the amazing people you decided to bring along with you. We love a good support system and opinions can be extremely helpful when making a tough decision. All we want you to remember is at the end of the day, you get to wear the gown and the ultimate decision comes down to what makes you feel like the fabulous bride you know you are! Today is your day and your happiness is what matter most to us. So, stay true to who you are and what you imagine yourself looking like on your magical day!
2. You can tell us anything
Take pride in that carefully crafted and finely curated Pinterest board or photo album that you have been creating and Show. It. Off. We want to see what you have been imagining so that we can help you navigate our curated Dress Loft.
Not your first time shopping? Tell us what you have loved so far, if there is something we want to stray away from, and most importantly if there is another gown out there we are trying to top!
3. Talk to us about what you’re thinking throughout your appointment
We, here at TMB, vow to listen to all feedback provided by you throughout the entirety of your appointment, for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, and as long as we both shall live (or at least until we find your gown) … so don’t hold back and tell us what you’re thinking! Let us know what you are liking, what you are loving, and what you think you might be missing in each dress you try on. This will help us narrow down our selection and bring you a step closer to finding your gown!
4. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone - but not too far
When choosing your selections from the dress loft, don’t be afraid to try things that might be a little out of your comfort zone, whether it be different style, neckline or detailing. You might find yourself surprised and loving something you weren’t sure about at first! Stepping out of your comfort zone can have its rewards as long as you feel you aren’t changing who you are. Our best advice is to stick with the one that you feel most like your gorgeous self in! Find the one that makes you feel like a glammed-up version of yourself so that when you look in the mirror you recognize the stunner staring back at you, but don’t want to look away because she is looking GOOD!!
5. We want you to ask questions - all of them!
Feel free to pick our brains during your appointment and ask us anything! Have a question about current trends, different designers, customization options, what’s for dinner? No topic is off limits and we are happy to chat about whatever comes to mind before, throughout and even after your appointment.
6. Saying “yes” can be a different experience for everyone
So, you found your dress and felt like you just said yes to buying another pair of shoes you probably already owned; maybe you couldn’t bring yourself to shed one single tear; or maybe you and your gal gang had to use our entire box of tissues while out of nowhere emerged a string quartet to play the very song you chose to walk down the aisle to. This is why we love our brides! Everyone is different, wonderfully unique and has their own experience when celebrating finding their dress. You don’t have to have that “I’m saying yes to this dress” moment. We are extremely excited for you no matter what and can’t wait to see you walk down the aisle in it!
7. We love our jobs, and it’s all because of you
Being surrounded by gorgeous gowns in a dreamy space is definitely a perk, but what makes us love our jobs the most is…you! We love getting to know each and every one of our TMB babes and what makes you unique! We are SO lucky we get to be apart of this process and we always have fun sharing this special experience with you and your friends and families. We can’t thank you enough for making our jobs so special!
NOW we can pop the champagne - Cheers Babes!
