Tips to Find Your Wedding Dress

Kenneth Winston Signature Plus

Are you one of the many lucky and excited, engaged women heading out in search of that perfect dress. We found this blog posting and felt it was great advice to share to help you along the way because, after all, that is what we wedding planners do best. Patrick Kelly, guest blogger for Bridal Guide, is the co-owner of JJ Kelly Bridal, Oklahoma’s premier bridal salon. He shares his experience working with “Say Yes to the Dress” fave, Randy Fenoli.

What To Bring To Your Dress Shopping Appointment.

Many girls want to bring an entourage with them, but rarely does this ever result in a successful shopping visit. On their way out the door, many brides whisper, “I’ll come back without so many people next time.” Sometimes, friends are blinded by what they would wear, and they unintentionally impose this vision on the bride. The only people you really need to bring are your Mom and Maid of Honor.

In terms of “things” to bring, a full-service salon will have everything you need (i.e. bras, slips, heels, etc). If you’re going to a discount store or sample event, it might be a good idea to stash those kinds of items in the car, just in case.

An important note about shoes: Be mindful of your heel height with your hem length, because too-tall heels can make your hem look short. Never let a shoe dictate your wedding dress—you’ll have a thousand photos with your gown and just one with your shoes. Besides, it can be difficult to spend an entire day walking around in 6-inch heels!
