What Happens During a VIP Bridal Appointment?

All-inclusive bridal packages can be a real treat for you and your bridal crew, with exclusive shopping opportunities and lots of champagne to go around. You can make your time shopping for a wedding dress a memorable experience, especially if you decide to bring your family and friends along for the occasion. If you’re interested in what a VIP bridal package offers, keep reading to find out more!

Private Shopping

Shopping with other brides is normal, since bridal stores are only open during certain business hours. However, with the VIP package, the store will be opened exclusively for you to shop. The benefits of having an empty bridal shop is less distractions and more opportunities to focus on what you want. Your private consultant will also be there to accompany you and answer any questions.

Personal Stylist

With a personal stylist by your side, you can let them know what styles and shapes you’re interested in. From mermaid and ball gown dresses to elegant trumpet and tea length gowns, they’ll be able to help you narrow down your choices. They can also cater to the needs of your guests, allowing for a comfortable and enjoyable time while you shop.

Champagne and Snacks

One of the bonuses of planning a VIP appointment is the champagne and treats included in the package. Sip from a luxurious champagne glass with your bridesmaids as you explore the store to find the perfect dress. You can also ask the store if they provide snacks too, since your party might get hungry from the extensive shopping activities.

Discounts

Discounts may be applicable only during your appointment time, which could mean a reduced price on your dress or other accessories. Be sure to call the store before your appointment to see if there are any deals or promotions included in the VIP package. Your personal stylist will also let you know if there’s any discounts on dresses in your price range.

Conclusion

If you are a bride looking to create a magical experience for yourself and your entourage, we can help you plan this amazing experience at All About the Gown by Judy, Inc. For more information on our VIP appointments, visit our website today!

Shopping For a Flower Girl Dress

While the majority of the focus of any given wedding will undoubtedly be allocated to the bride and groom, there’s one other party that receives their share of the attention when the time comes for them to shine. When the music hits and the flower girl enters the room, heralding the arrival of the couple, all eyes are on her. Naturally, you’ll want this very special member of the ceremony to feel confident and proud in a dress that matches the occasion. But where to begin when picking out that outfit?

Fortunately, we have a few thoughts on what goes into picking out the perfect flower girl dress. Keep these few tips of ours in the back of your mind and make sure your special little girl enjoys an unforgettable experience and adds that extra little something the wedding proceedings!

Be Conscious of Color and Style

Many times, the bride will have free agency in picking out the ideal flower girl dress. And more often than not, they’ll opt for a look that effortlessly meshes with the overall look of the wedding. After all, the last thing you want is for your flower girl to steal the show with an overtly vibrant look. A popular option many end up going with is a white frock that resembles the bride’s wedding dress or even a hue that more closely matches with the bridesmaids’ look. Regardless of what you end up going with, know that the end goal should be visually connecting the dress’ look to the rest of the bridal party.

Plan Ahead When it Comes to Size

When shopping for our own dresses, we naturally pay quite a bit of attention towards picking out the proper size and alterations. Fortunately, there’s less to worry about when the time comes to pick out a flower girl’s wardrobe. We obviously don’t want something too over-sized she can trip over, but we also don’t want to go too far in the opposite direction and pick something too restrictive.

Another crucial variable to keep in mind is your little one’s growth. Children grow quickly and if you plan on picking out the dress early, you’ll definitely want to account for growth spurts and maybe pick out a size a little too big for her current size.

Be Considerate When Picking Out Fabric

We mentioned before that you’ll want to match your flower girl dress with the wedding ceremony’s overall aesthetic. And while that may be true, you also don’t want to pick out a heavy or itchy fabric that proves a pain to move around in. Your flower girl will be moving around a lot and the right fabric will be one that isn’t susceptible to rips and tears. We recommend satin for its wrinkle and rip-resistance!

Conclusion

There’s quite a bit to consider when it comes to picking out a flower girl’s attire for that special day. Of course, above all, you want something that’ll make her feel comfortable and confident. Keep what we mentioned in mind and you’ll be on your way to making your little one into a welcome inclusion into the ceremony’s itinerary.
