First and foremost, congratulations to all the beautiful brides to be! Since the engagement, we can only imagine the multitude of questions people have been asking you as you plan for your wedding. Here at All About the Gown by Judy, Inc. we have had hundreds of happy brides visit our store in search of their wedding gown. From questions on pricing, to style and alterations, there is a lot to weave through when shopping for a dress. Well fret not, we will be sharing a few of our shopping tips, in hopes that they serve you well, and that your shopping experience is beyond memorable and enjoyable nonetheless!

What Is Your Budget?

Before falling in love with a gorgeous shimmery gown that carries a hefty tag, you want to make sure you set a budget. How much money are you willing to spend on your dream gown? Once an amount is set, you can narrow your choices and expectations. Make sure to factor extra costs such as alterations and veil onto your budget. You might be tempted to try on luxurious gowns just for fun, but we suggest not trying dresses on that are outside of your budget. This can either set you past your budget leaving a strain on the rest of your wedding, or give you false expectations on your ideal gown that a beautiful dress within your budget could not live up to.


Wedding dress shopping can be overwhelming, and your first wedding dress appointment can be stressful if you don’t come prepared. Take time to do your research on potential gowns that you would like to consider. Having an idea of the style of dress you would like will make it easier for your bridal salon to provide you with the best options, and ease the stress during your shopping experience.

Schedule Your Bridal Shop Appointments

Once you have done your research, and have a better idea of the dress you are looking for, it is time to book your appointments! It is very rare that a bridal shop offers walk-ins. We recommend calling at least two weeks in advance to schedule your appointments. The more appointments that you can get on the same day, the better. This will make the decision a lot easier as all the options you have tried on are fresh in your mind.

We hope these tips will help you in your wedding journey! Finding your dream wedding dress is an emotional and exciting moment for every bride to be.
