We know you’re anxious to begin the ultimate hunt for the perfect dress! Here at Anya Bridal, we are considered the creme de la creme of Atlanta Bridal stores! And before we see you in store, we have a couple of tips on what to know before you visit us! Here are seven things to know before you go dress shopping.
Limit the entourage
Bringing a big group to the store is a big gown shopping don’t! Having too many opinions can be confusing and it’ll be more difficult to listen to your gut intuition. Enlist one or two of your closest pals to help you begin your search. That way you can find the gown of your dreams and not feel pressured by other opinions.
While most bridal stores have a few different types of bras in their fitting rooms, we suggest you bring your favorite strapless style or a particular body shaper that you plan on wearing on your wedding day. Ultimately, you need your gown-specific undergarments for your first fitting but not your first appointment.
Don’t be discouraged!
There are hundreds of bridal designers out there with thousands of wedding dress designs! The odds of finding your fantastic gown are looking pretty good! At Anya Bridal, we offer several styles such as A-line, mermaid, ball gown, sheath, short or sleeved dresses, and much more!
Shopping for your body now
No matter the shape, knowing your body shape--full, pear, petite, thin--is the first step in finding the right dress for you! Even if you do plan on dropping 10 pounds before your wedding, your frame isn’t going to completely change because you’ve swapped candy for carrots!
Book An Appointment
While you can always walk in and snag a salesperson at AnyaBridal, we highly suggest you schedule an appointment. It’s a great way to ensure that you’ll get a full hour of our undivided attention!
Skip Day One Of A Sample Sale
We know you’re tempted to get there as soon as the doors open (trust us, we’re just as excited as you! We love a good sample sale), but shopping seriously on the first day of a sample sale can be downright stressful! Call ahead and find out how many days the sale will run--or check our Instagram and Facebook for updates. Go on a later date!
Playing hooky isn’t such a bad idea!
Sneaking away from work for a day or two will allow you to hit our store while it’s less busy! You’ll have more time to browse our clearance section on a Wednesday morning than a Saturday afternoon! There will also be less women hogging the mirrors!
