Check out her very insightful and helpful tips below!
Whether you are a fashionista or only run to the store when you need something, one thing is for sure, unless you've been engaged before, this is the first time you've shopped for a wedding dress. This is something that can be equally thrilling and terrifying for most women. Shopping for a wedding gown is unlike any other retail shopping trip you've made before. We've got some tips for you to help ease you in to the world of wedding dresses!
1) Does anyone remember even planning a wedding without the aide of Pinterest? It can be your best and worst enemy. It's a treasure trove of wedding style ideas, do it yourself projects, and a great resource! One thing though is it can be deceiving when it comes to wedding gowns. Most content on Pinterest never gets deleted, so you may fall in love with a gown that is no longer available. It also offers up many pretty pictures, but there often isn't much information on the actual dress itself. Often times brides bring in pictures of gowns that cost $10,000 and up or often they were a style made only for the runway, and is not in production.
At Bridal Chateau we understand that Pinterest is a coveted resource. You can link to our boards to find wedding inspiration or peruse through our collections of wedding gown boards. For us, we use this media as a platform to display a preview of our selections to our brides. It's the easiest way for us to update what we have in store. We delete styles as they are sold off the rack and add new dresses as they arrive. While it doesn't include every gown in the store, we want our brides to connect with us and make sure their wedding style and our store align.
Check out some of our boards such as Bridal Gowns, Curvy Couture, and Under $1000 Bridal Gowns. Each dress is price coded with $$$, so you can shop within your budget comfortably and know what to expect when you come into our salon.
