Getting the best from your appointment

Choosing a plus size wedding dress
at bridal stores

Before proceeding it's worth noting that most reputable bridal establishments are busy and usually see brides on an appointment only basis.

Ideally one should make appointments at a number of these more reputable bridal stores to try on styles and hopefully get some intelligent advice of what styles will suit the bride's figure and budget. It is best to be honest about how much you are prepared to spend. There is little point is trying on $10,000 dresses, if your budget is $1,500.

The advice is normally given for free, but brides should be aware that it is extremely frustrating for the bridal stores, (and unfair on other brides), when brides fail to show for their appointments.

The best bridal stores always have a waiting list for appointments and when brides do not bother to turn up or cancel; this effectively deprives other brides of that appointment slot. For this reason, many of the top designer bridal boutiques charge a cancellation fee if you do not give them 48hrs notice of cancellation in writing.

The best bridal stores have a waiting list. get in early to order your plus size wedding dress imageSaturdays and week day evening appointments at
a bridal store are generally in high demand for obvious reasons,
so it pays to book well in advance.

Sometimes customers are asked to remove their shoes so as not to damage the carpets and request that brides wear gloves when trying on dresses, to help minimise soiling, from being over handled. Otherwise the sheer number of people trying them on ruins expensive wedding dress samples within weeks. Most brides would understandably prefer not to try on shop-soiled dresses. Bearing in mind these small courtesies makes for a memorable and thoroughly enjoyable experience!
