What To Ask When Wedding Dress Shopping

 When searching for that magical wedding gown you are going to be searching through several wedding stores and they are not all going to be the same. It is always good to be prepared when wedding dress shopping and ask questions to get information that is crucial when choosing the perfect dress. We have put together some questions that will help you find the perfect gown.

1. What is the size range you carry?

Most bridal stores have a couple standard sizes they have in stock so that you may try on. It is important to ask this question because you might require a unique size that might not be in store. If you need plus sizes some shops may not have that available and then there are those that specialize in that sizing. Having this information can help you narrow your choices in where to buy. It is also important to ask what sizes a certain designer you are interested in has available. 

2. What is the price range of your gowns?

Keeping you budget in mind is very important. It is easy to get swept up in all the sparkle and pretty lace but you must remember how much you can spend on a gown. Asking this question will again help you decide if this bridal store will be a good fit for you. When it comes to prices it is also important to ask if there is extra fees when purchasing plus sizes. Some times prices for plus sizes are an extra fee. A way to save some money is buy purchasing gowns off the rack. This is something to ask if it is available at the bridal store. 

3. Do you offer in store alterations?

More often then not your wedding dress will need alterations. Having an in store tailor is very important and helpful because it is a one stop shop. You won't need to go out of your way to get it tailored some where else. Of course asking for pricing on alteration is always recommended. 

4. Do you sell bridesmaids dresses & accessories?

Having a one stop shop sounds like the ideal thing but not all bridal stores sell bridesmaids dress and bridal accessories. If they do have these items it is great to ask what kind of accessories they sell. Sometimes stores offer deals of purchasing wedding gowns and veils together add a special price. If they do sell bridesmaids dresses you can plan to come back with your bride tribe to pick out the right one for them. 

5. Is there payment plans available?

Every bridal shop is different and offer different payment policies. Some store may require full payment  and some may require a deposit. Knowing this will prepare you when you think you have found the one. It is also something to think about when planing out your dress budget. 

Being prepared to go wedding dress shopping will save you time and perhaps even money. We advise to ask these questions to help you find your dream dress. Sit down and think about what is important when it comes to your perfect dress and we are sure you are going to find the right fit!
