Hey girlfriend!! Are you getting ready to go dress shopping?! Well, it just so happens that we interviewed Kristin, the owner of Elle James Bridal to bring you the complete scoop! Here is everything you need to know when you’re prepping for your appointment!
1. How far in advanced should a bride call to book their appointment? And how much time should be allowed between appointment date and wedding date?
We recommend calling to book an appointment at least 3 weeks in advance, especially if you would like a Saturday appointment. This gives you the best pick of appointment times! It takes dresses 4 – 6 months to arrive and you want to leave yourself two months for alterations once it arrives so we recommend booking your appointment to begin your wedding dress search at least 8 months before your wedding day.
2. Do you recommend the bride finding the style of dress they want ahead of time or does this put a damper on the process of exploration?
3. Do you recommend the bride coming with full make up and hair done or does that really matter?
