Do Your Research

Before your appointment here at Moments Made Bridal, it's essential to have an idea of the styles and silhouettes that appeal to you. Create a Pinterest board or save images of dresses that catch your eye and pay attention to details like neckline, sleeve length, and fabric. Having a general idea of what you like will help guide your stylist in finding dresses that match your vision. We have a large selection of modest wedding gowns perfect for all types of brides!

Set a Budget

Come prepared with a budget that you are wanting to stick around. This will help narrow down your options and save you from falling in love with a dress that is beyond your budget. Remember to consider alterations, accessories, and any additional costs that may arise. 

Bring Your Best Support System

While it's tempting to bring your entire squad to the bridal appointment, it's often more practical to limit your group to a few close friends or family members. Too many opinions can be overwhelming, and you want to ensure that your voice is heard. After all, you’re the one wearing the dress, not them! 

Wear the Right Undergarments

To get the most accurate representation of how a dress will look on your wedding day, wear nude or seamless undergarments that provide support without adding bulk. Consider bringing a strapless bra and appropriate shapewear if needed. Many brides also bring other additional bridal wear such as their shoes and accessories!

Style Your Hair and Makeup

While a full face of makeup isn't necessary, a bit of makeup can enhance your features and make the experience feel more special. If you're comfortable, style your hair in a way that reflects how you might wear it on your wedding day. This will help you envision the complete bridal look.

Bring Inspiration, Not Expectations

While it's great to have inspiration, keep an open mind. The dress you fall in love with might be different from what you initially envisioned. Trust your stylist's expertise and be willing to try on a variety of styles. You never know what you’ll like until you try it on!

Ask Questions

Don't be afraid to ask questions during your appointment! Ask about customization options, delivery times, and our policies regarding our modest wedding dresses. Clear communication ensures that you're well-informed and confident in your decision.

Celebrate Your Decision

Once you find the dress that makes your heart skip a beat, celebrate! Take a moment to savor the experience, revel in the joy, and toast to finding the gown that will make you feel like the radiant bride you are. Take a picture with our “I said yes to the dress sign” and share it with all your friends and loved ones! 

Preparing for your bridal appointment is an exciting and crucial step in your wedding planning journey. By doing your research, setting a budget, and embracing the appointment with an open mind, you're setting yourself up for a successful and memorable dress shopping experience at our wedding dress shop in Utah!  Enjoy every moment of this special time, and here's to finding the wedding dress of your dreams!
