For the past ten years Mark Ingram has been dressing brides in fabulous gown at his Atelier on the East Side of Manhattan. In honor of the Atelier's 10th anniversary I thought I'd recycle an old post from 2006 with his wedding gown shopping tips, because this advice never goes out of style:
1. It is important to have an actual wedding date and venue. Your sales consultant will help you select a gown that is perfect for your setting.
2. Bring tear sheets, photos and downloaded web images of styles of gowns you wish to try on. Our consultants will make additional style recommendations based on your initial conversation.
3. Before scheduling an appointment, make sure the salons you have selected feature gowns in your price range.
4. In general, limit your shopping companions to the one or two persons whose opinions mean the most.
The Mark Ingram Atelier is located at 110 East 55th Street, 8th Floor. They only work by appointment, so call them at 212-319-6778 to schedule one soon.
