I was talking to a friend who asked me if I could get her a discount on a Monique Lhuillier dress. Between sample sales and trunk shows there are always ways to get a discount on a wedding dress – even just asking the store if they can do any better. This bride-to-be has only been engaged a few days so I asked her which salon she tried it in on at. Her reply: She hadn’t tried it on, just saw it in a picture online.
I basically told her that until she tries the dress on she doesn’t know for sure if it’s the right one for her. Why? Because even though you think you know what you want/like you won’t really know until you start trying different gowns on. You may think you want a fitted sexy dress and fall in love with a poufy ball gown. You never know until you start trying them on.
And once you do get to a salon, remember that dresses will look completely different on the hanger than they do on a body so keep an open mind and trust the salesperson you’re working with. She’s been doing this for years and may know exactly which dress is right for you.
