Get the Look: Meghan Markle

                Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding was such a beautiful event! It was the royal wedding we have waited eagerly for and we are happy to say it did not disappoint. From the ceremony to the dress and beautiful moments in between we are so overjoyed to get to see it all. The bride stunned in a ¾ sleeve crepe modified A-line gown, which made her look simply elegant. Then she wowed in a sophisticated high neck fit and flare gown. Needless to say, both gowns left us speechless! 

To keep the spirit of the Royal Wedding, we’ve got some looks from our designers that are simple and elegant much like the new Duchess of Sussex.

Bridal Shopping 101

First things first. Congratulations on your engagement! Now that you’ve said the most important “Yes!” now it time to begin your search for the dream dress! We know you probably have a million questions but we are hear to help. Here are our top 5 tips to make the most out of your bridal shopping experience.

 

1.       Define your look and create a Vision

When it comes to wedding planning having a clear vision of the overall day and your look is crucial to finding the dress. Start with honing in on your personal style and where you want to get married. The venue and the dress are what define the tone for your big day. Are you having a chic city wedding, relaxed beach wedding or classic church nuptials? Once you have done that you will have a clear vison of what you need to look for in your dress. 

2.       Research styles and Designers

Now it' s time to research what styles, fabrics and designers that will help bring your vision to life. Pinterest, Instagram and Bridal Magazines are excellent places to start your research.  Be sure to research designers and their price points so that you don't go over budget. Save your images and bring them to your bridal appointment, this will help the consultant better understand what you are looking for!

3.       Make your appointment

It's officially dress shopping time! Research local bridal shops that you would like to book your appointment with. If you are look for a specific designer, stores will list them on their website or you can always call ahead if there is something specific you are looking for. 

The first thing brides need to know is the Bridal timeline, which is how long it takes for the dresses to be ordered and altered before your big day. Dresses take 4-6 months to be ordered and you want to allow for a 2 month cushion for alterations and the bridal salons needs about a month as puffer. Ideally, Brides should order their gown 9-11 months before their wedding. 

4.       Prepare for your appointment

The appointment is booked now it's time to shop!

First, make sure to bring proper undergarments, such as spanx, strapless bra and nude under wear, This will help you better visualize the look and fit of the dress.

Second, limit your bridal party. It is best to not bring too many people to your appointment as it can make the appointment very overwhelming. One to two trusted opinions is more than enough to help find the one. Also, if some people can't make it, its always a good idea to coordinate FaceTime while you are shopping.

5.       Have fun!

This is one of the most joyous times of your life and you deserve to enjoy it! So relax, and always remember to have fun. Keep in mind that this is a process that takes time to narrow down to the "one". Don't stress and trust that everyone is here for you to ensure you will be beautiful, happy and the bride you were always meant to be.
