We have one major piece of advice for you as you begin this all important search. Do not be in a hurry. You need to do some homework and make this process fun. You will be visiting a number of bridal boutiques and trying on a number of different dresses. You will want to make sure that you can sit in the dress of your choosing as well as move around in it. We have some other advice as well, but that can wait until later. For now, make sure that you take this guide with you wherever you go and it will lead you to some amazing dress shops in the Los Angeles area. We have also provided for you some questions that you will need to ask and some tips on what to do when you visit each bridal shop.
Finding some quality bridal boutiques to check out is your first aim. Word of mouth sources are still the best in our opinion. So, start talking to your family, friends and coworkers about any bridal shops they have been to or worked with. You never know, you may find someone who cannot stop raving about a shop they visited and purchased a gown from. If you find this happens to you, jot down the name of the shop as you start keeping a list of potential boutiques to visit. Another potential source and possibly the most profitable is the world wide web. Do a Google search for “bridal dress shops in the Los Angeles area.” Yes, we know there will be hundreds of results, but your best option is to start clicking on links and determine if a particular shop is worth your time to check out. Your wedding vendors are another potential source of information. It is worth checking with them to see if they have any recommendations. Once you have a pretty good working list, start your tour of bridal shops.
Make sure that you have determined a budget of what you can spend on your dress before you visit any bridal shops. When you step inside of a boutique, that number should be the first thing that you share with the consultant. Why is this important? Because you want your consultant to only bring out dresses that you can afford and will be able to purchase. When you make your visits, only bring one or two trusted advisers, not a large group. A multitude of opinions in your ear is not necessarily a good thing. Make sure that you bring pictures of dresses that you really love. But also, keep in mind that just because you love the way the dresses look on someone else doesn't mean that that same dress would be perfect for you. Your consultant should be able to help you understand your body shape and advise you as to what kind of dress would work best for you. If they are experienced and knowledgeable in the field, trust them. We cannot stress how important being open minded is in this search. And one last thing to keep in mind. When you are visiting the various shops on your list, you might find yourself knocked out by a particular dress you try on. When this happens, go ahead and bite the bullet. There is no need to continue to visit shops, your dream dress has been found.
