Who Should You Bring to Your Marcella’s Bridal Appointment?

Planning a wedding is one of the most exciting times in your life, and choosing your wedding dress is a highlight of the entire journey. Before you head to your bridal appointment, it is important to decide who will accompany you on this special day. Here’s some advice from Marcella’s Bridal to ensure your experience is joyful, productive, and as stress-free as possible.

Bring a Few Trusted Voices

When it comes to picking your wedding dress, less is often more. Bringing a small group of people whose opinions you truly value can make the experience smoother and more enjoyable. Consider inviting:

  • Your Mom or Mother Figure: She’s been with you through thick and thin, and her presence can be comforting.

  • Your Maid of Honor: She knows your style and will likely give you honest yet supportive feedback.

  • A Close Friend or Sibling: Someone who understands your taste and will cheer you on as you try different gowns.

These individuals are more likely to understand your vision and help you make a decision that feels right for you.

Avoid Overwhelm with Too Many Opinions

While it might be tempting to bring a large entourage, it can quickly become overwhelming. Too many opinions can create confusion and stress, making it harder for you to focus on how you feel in each dress. Our bridal stylists are amazing at understanding each bride's unique style. Having a select few that can understand your vision and let our stylists work their magic will help you find your dream dress. 

Supportive and Understanding Feedback

Ensure that those you bring are supportive and understand what you are looking for. They should be there to boost your confidence, not to critique every choice harshly. Positive reinforcement will help you feel beautiful and excited about your selection.

Reveal Appointments: Celebrate with Everyone Later

We understand that you might want to share this joyous moment with a larger group of loved ones. That’s why we offer reveal appointments! After you’ve found your perfect gown, you can bring up to six guests to a special reveal appointment. This way, you can:

  • Share the Moment: Let your broader circle see your dress for the first time in a special, celebratory setting.

  • Raise a Toast: Celebrate this milestone with a toast and joyful memories.

  • Avoid the Stress: Keep the initial decision-making process intimate and focused, and enjoy the larger celebration later.

Choosing your wedding dress is a deeply personal and significant experience. By bringing a select few who truly understand and support you, you can make the process smoother and more meaningful. And with our reveal appointments, you get the best of both worlds – an intimate shopping experience and a joyful celebration with all your loved ones.
