With our two locations in Westfield and Princeton, we invite New Jersey brides, New York brides and Philadelphia brides to come and experience Exquisite Bride. We take great pride in helping you in your journey to find the wedding dress of your dreams. We pulled together some helpful tips when wedding shopping.
Take a peek at some things we wanted you to know:
Invite friends and family that will actually help you
You know those people in your life that their opinion truly matters to you? Invite them. Be careful not to invite too many people because too many people can damage your experience more than it can help. (Trust us!) See our list of who not to invite in one of our older blog posts.
Wedding day undergarments
We recommend you wearing undergarments that you will most likely be wearing or want to wear on your big day.
Sizing of wedding gowns is different
Consider your venue
Think about your wedding day when you are shopping for your dress. Will you be outside? Will you be in a church or cathedral? Of course, we want you to get the dress of your dreams but we do recommend you to consider your venue when deciding.
To cry or not to cry
Don’t worry, not all brides cry when they find “the one.” So whether you cry or not cry is completely normal. And no matter what you are feeling during this exciting process, your friends, family and our bridal consultants are here for you.
Buy your gown 8-12 months before
We suggest you start looking for your wedding dress at least 12 months out. 8 months before the big day, you should be purchasing your dress. Why? You must understand that our gowns are designer dresses. Each dress is made specifically for you. 8 months provides an adequate amount of time for the entire process to take place. You must also consider time for fittings and alterations. It’s a meticulous process but it will be worth it in the end!
Don’t have 8-12 months? Not a problem! Depending on how much time you do have, a rush order can be put in with the designer. They can usually get something to you by the time of your wedding but please note that it will be an additional cost.
