After some recent discussion with our bridal boutiques it has come to my attention that we needed to write an article on Wedding Dress Etiquette when in store. Trying on and choosing the Wedding Dress is the best part of the whole wedding for you. You want this to be an enjoyable experience, but with that there are some house rules when you are in a bridal store. Read on:

Make an Appointment
Make an appointment two weeks in advance with the bridal boutique that you would like to visit. Some bridal boutiques may take walk-ins, but most bridal boutiques will request that you make an appointment before coming in. A person that has made an appointment will be given consideration over you.

Time to try on Dresses
Allocate approximately 1-2 hours to try on dresses. Dress shops are very busy on the weekends and may only allow you to try on dresses for an hour. Weekday appointments are generally not quite as busy and ideal if you want to spend more time trying on dresses and talking with your sales person. Brautkleider kaufen

Be Prepared
Most bridal boutiques do not have showrooms that allow you to browse through their collection of dresses. All of their dresses are usually stored away in a back room and your sales person will go and bring to you dresses that she feels is suited to what you are looking for. Therefore it is important to be prepared to describe what types of dresses you are interested in trying on during your visit. Bring pictures or descriptions of dresses you would like to see. With limited time, this will help your sales person quickly identify dresses to bring to you and make your visit more productive.

Your Budget
Be prepared to discuss your price budget with your sales person. This will allow her to bring you dresses that are in your price range.

Dressing Rooms
Bridal Boutique dressing rooms are generally large enough to accommodate 1-2 guests.

Getting dressed
Because dresses can be heavy and even delicate, the sales person will likely dress and undress you. Dresses need to be hung nicely once you have finished trying on the dress – not just dumped in the corner of the dressing room. Zips can be caught in the material and torn if not handled correctly. Your salesperson’s job is to help you with the dress, allow her this.

Photo taking of dresses in not permitted
Bridal boutiques DO NOT allow photos. COPYRIGHT LAWS ARE IN PLACE. It is not only disrespectful but also disloyal to the designer (and company). There are many “style-shoppers”. These are people who have no intention of buying. They are having their gown made and are simply looking for what style suits them best. Bridal Stores will not allow photos until a deposit is paid and an order placed
