Davids bridal experience 

So I’ve already purchased my dress months ago but I haven’t seen it (which gets me a little nervous) so I decided “let’s try some dresses at David’s Bridal to make sure I picked the right dress”. I’ve already had a Kleinfeld’s experience, where I previously said yes to a Pnina Tornei dress that I had to say no to because of the price, and I wasn’t sure what this David’s Bridal experience would be like, but here it is! Watch the vlog!

Here are some tips to make your bridal appointment go smoothly!

DECIDE ON A LOOK
Before going on to try on any dresses anywhere, it’s best to have an idea in mind of what you envision your wedding to look like as a whole. For instance if you’re going for a vintage wedding theme, it might not suit you to go with a Princess ball gown. If you’re not sure what you envision yourself on your wedding day, you could always confide in your fiance and get his opinion.

 


SET A BUDGET
Before you walk in there set a budget for  your wedding, and in that budget carve out a budget for your dress, because dresses can be pricey. Pick a number you’re comfortable with and an absolute max: that way when you go in, you tell your consultant what price you’re comfortable with and don’t pick a dress that goes over that. Don’t make my mistake, I went in without a solid budget and ended up picking a dress that cost $8,000 that I loved (I said yes to that dress) and was heart broken when I had to come to terms that was not a reasonable priced dress for me.

 

GET COMFORTABLE AN BE OPEN
When you go in keep an open mind, most dresses look better on! Try to stick with styles that you’re comfortable with regularly in terms of neck line and silhouette style, for instance if your instance if you’re more conservative, you may not be comfortable with a deep V-Cut neckline or extremely low back, so try to avoid picking those styles but be open to different styles, or a little bling to make your dress pop.

Lets Get to trying on the dresses!

Before we can start with the dresses, we have to set the foundation with undergarments that David’s Bridal provide that gives you a better look and feel of how the dress will fit you on your wedding day!

I tried on about 6 dresses, staying within the budget of $2000. I took this time to try some dresses completely different from what I would go for (just to make sure that the dress I designed is absolutely the right dress for me), a couple ball gowns, an A-line dress, a mermaid style dress and a more fitted number.
