Should I bring anything special?
It’s helpful to bring to your appointment anything you plan to wear on your wedding day such as a strapless bra, spanx, or shoes.
When should I begin dress shopping?
The industry standard is to begin shopping 8-1o months before your wedding. It can take up to 6 months for your gown to arrive. Alterations begin two months before your wedding day. You can expect to have at least three fittings.
“Magnolia Bridal is a by-appointment-only boutique. I now understand why – by doing this, the consultants are able to devote the needed attention to brides-to-be who are picking out gowns. I had the privilege of working with Kaitlin, the owner, who helped me pick out the gown of my dreams. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about the gowns in her store and assisted me in finding the perfect dress. I brought along my mother, sister/MOH, and future mother-in-law who had a blast. I could hear them laughing in the sitting room having fun while Kaitlin and I were putting on gowns. Overall, such a wonderful and positive experience!” –Christina L.
