We know going shopping for your DREAM gown can be overwhelming! The key to having a successful wedding dress appointment is to come prepared. We have come up with a short but mighty list of what you need to bring to your appointment.

1. Strapless Bra

When you’re wearing this bra you will be able to visualize the full effect of a dress, whether it’s strapless, one shoulder, spaghetti straps, etc. This may not be what you’re wearing on your BIG day, but it will definitely help with the selection process.


2. Hairstyle

Bring pictures of the hairstyle you plan on (or are thinking of) wearing on your wedding day, this way you can assure yourself that your hairstyle compliments your dream gown. Having your dress and hairstyle work together is important for your BIG day! Just think of all those pictures you’re going to be posing for!

Whether you have just a few style you like, or a binder full, bring photos of dress styles you like. When looking for wedding gown inspiration, make sure you are looking for dresses that will work with your body type (blog to come on shopping for your body type).


4.  Location of Reception

It’s good to know where you are planning on having your wedding, whether it’s destination, garden, hall,etc. Choosing your dress and knowing where you are going to be having your ceremony and reception is important for style

5.  Shoes

Most girls don’t think about bringing shoes. The shoes don’t have to be the ones you are going to wear on your wedding day, but if you have a certain height in mind, that will help pull together the whole look when you’re in the gowns.
