There’s a lot that goes into planning a wedding and choosing your wedding gown is one of the most exciting parts. A bride needs to find the perfect boutique and stylists to choose her dress for the day she has dreamt about her whole life! The girls at Schaffer’s are here to assist!
Who should you bring?
There’s a good chance that there are a lot of people that come to mind when it comes to your bridal entourage. Schaffer’s recommends anywhere from 1-4 people. These people can be your mom, dad, sister, maid of honor or best friend. Remember the larger the group, the more opinions you are going to get, which can be overwhelming. Our secret advice is to bring people that have your best interest at heart and will support you.
How to Prepare?
This day is all about you and you want to feel absolutely beautiful. This may mean a full face of make up with an up-do or a ponytail and fresh face. You want to think of this day as a dress rehearsal where you will get a visual idea of what you will look like on your special day. Remember - come as you!
Accessories to Consider
Don’t forget about veils, headpieces, jewelry and shoes! Sounds like a lot? Don’t stress. That’s where the Schaffer’s stylists come in. When you find the perfect dress, then you can start to play dress up. Whether it is a traditional cathedral veil, a crown with diamonds or a flower halo, you will find the perfect veil and headpiece that compliments the dress you fall in love with! The same holds true for jewelry and shoes. No need to bring anything with you, Schaffer’s has jewelry in the store as well as shoes to complete your look. With the right pieces, you will surely make a statement as you walk down the aisle.
Knowing Your Style
Before going to your first appointment, do your research and consider your budget and style. It makes it easier for both you and your consultant if you have pictures of dresses and names of designers that you found on the store’s site or on other bridal sites. (Schaffer’s keep our website up to date with the dresses we currently have sampled in store!) This allows the consultant to pull dresses they think you might like! Wedding dresses fit differently than everyday clothing so, go in with an open mind, because you might be surprised!
