Ever wondered what happens at a bridal appointment? We thought we’d walk you through the experience you’ll receive with us. When you visit The Gilded Gown you’ll first be greeted by one of our friendly bridal stylists who will spend some time getting to know you, and your bridal party. They will ask you all about any plans you’ve made for your special day such as your venue, your wedding color palette, and your overall vibe. Are you planning a rustic, barn wedding? Maybe you’ve got a hip downtown event in mind. Or are you a traditional-minded bride with a romantic chapel ceremony in the works? No matter what kind of wedding day plans you have planned, our dedicated team of stylists genuinely want to hear about them. We are interested in learning as much about you and your dreams for your wedding as we can. After all, the more we listen to what you envision, the better able we are to help you find the perfect dress.
This is a wonderful time to describe the dress of your dreams, discuss your target budget and let your stylist know of any special concerns you might have. Have a Pinterst board of inspo pics? Let us see! Anything you absolutely must have in a dress? We’d love to hear about it.
We offer a very relaxed, fun environment and our stylists are always ready to share a laugh! Our goal is for you to have a lifetime shopping experience. We like to say that our work is “a joy, not a job” because we get to be a part of so many happy moments.
After we learn more about you and your hopes and dreams for your wedding, it’s time for a little tour. We will show you where your private dressing room is, where our try on runways are, and also give you an overview of our amazing selection of gorgeous dresses and bridal accessories. Your stylist will give you your very own shopping cart and show you where to look for your size. They’ll also help you select dresses based on your preferences. Oftentimes our stylists end up picking “the one.”
We give you the space to look on your own, too, if you prefer. We offer a huge selection in all sizes from 00 to 32.
Once you’ve found some dresses you love we will show you to your private dressing room. This is your own little oasis to try on in. Our stylists will assist you with any built-in corsets, straps, buttons and zippers. Our gowns are fully lined with built-in bra cups.
Once you’re in a dress it’s time to hit the runway and admire your reflection!
You’ll feel like a bride when you try on some of our pretty accessories to help you perfect your wedding day look. Seeing yourself with one of our bouquets can transport you right to the aisle.
A veil is a perfect finishing touch. (Be prepared for tears! Seeing yourself in a veil can be emotional.)
When you find a dress that you love you’ll know it.
By the time you’ve tried on all your dresses and had your “yes” moment, you and your stylist will most likely by high-fiving!
Once you’ve said, “Yes!” it’s time to purchase your gown. You can purchase your dress outright, or if needed, you can utilize one of our easy layaway plans. Our stylists are happy to explain how our plans work.
Finally, it is time to celebrate! We love our brides and we can’t wait for you to become a Gilded Gown bride too! Schedule your bridal appointment on our website or by calling us at 865-329-4905.
