Trying on wedding dresses is one of the most fun parts of planning for your wedding. We have a few tips before you come to The Perfect Gown, to make your fitting experience the best it can be!
DOS & DON’TS
1. BRING YOUR WEDDING SHOES
Bring the shoes that you are likely to wear for your wedding. It will give you a much better idea of how the dress sits on you. If you haven't chosen your shoes yet, bring a pair of shoes that is closest to the height of the heel you will probably be wearing.
2. BRING YOUR WEDDING UNDERGARMENTS
Some women buy special undergarments for their wedding day while others prefer to be comfortable in their everyday underwear. Regardless of what you plan to wear under your dress, make sure you bring it to your fitting appointment. You'll get a much better idea of the fit of a dress when you're wearing exactly what you'll have underneath on the big day.
3. KEEP YOUR PARTY SMALL
The Perfect Gown's viewing area is small and intimate so we ask that you bring no more than five guests to your appointment to make sure everyone has a spot to sit comfortably... and so you have more than enough room to move around as you try on our beautiful dresses!
4. REMEMBER NOT TO WEAR ANY HEAVY SCENTS
We ask that you please remind everyone who will be accompanying you that we are a strict scent-free shop, due to our owner's severe chemical scent allergy. This means please avoid wearing perfumes or scented creams/body sprays, and heavily scented hair products. If someone does wear a strong scent and it is affecting our owner (she may be the one helping you during your appointment!), we may have to cut your appointment short or ask the person wearing the scent to exit the shop. We thank you sincerely for your understanding!
4. WEARING MAKEUP
Makeup should be kept to a bare minimum. Please try to wear minimal makeup to avoid transfers on to the wedding gowns.
