To be asked about your style preferences and budget

By asking about your style and budget, bridal stylists can guide you towards dresses that you match your vision for the day without breaking the bank.  Discussing style and budget will also help you make the most of your time. Don’t worry if you don’t have a specific style in mind - bridal consultants are experts at recommending dresses based on your body type, venue and vibe.

To have fun!

Shopping for a wedding gown should be a joyful experience - not only is it a chance to celebrate your upcoming nuptials, it also allows you to spend time with those who matter most to you. It also helps that you get to try on beautiful dresses that are designed to make you look and feel beautiful.

To get very personal with your consultant

Your stylists will be helping you in and out of dresses, buttoning you up and clipping you in so be sure that you wear undergarments you are comfortable with someone else seeing.  Your consultant will also be your advocate throughout the process so you can count on them to get to know you and your entourage.

To be emotional

Even if you aren’t normally an emotional person, seeing yourself as a bride for the first time as your besties look on can be overwhelming.  In addition, you may be physically tired if you’ve scheduled multiple appointments or haven’t slept well the night before. We recommend only scheduling 1 -2 appointment per day.

To sign a contract

Bridal gowns are special garments that typically take four to six months to produce and are a big expense; therefore, most bridal shops will ask you to sign a contract that outlines your responsilibies along with the shop’s responsibilities.  You will also be asked to put down a deposit to order the dress.


Since 2000, The Bridal Collection has been helping Colorado brides look and feel their very best for the most important day of their lives.  To learn more about The Bridal Colleciton or book an appointment, visit www.thebridalcollection.com
