What To Expect at Your Bridal Appointment

What To Expect at Your Bridal Appointment

Hi! Welcome to the Madeleine's Daughter blog, where you can find all of the tips and tricks you need to help you have a seamless and fun wedding dress shopping appointment. Shopping for your wedding dress is perhaps one of the most special experiences you will ever have. In fact, your first appointment, while exciting, may leave you feeling a little nervous. But never fear! We are here to tell you what to expect during your wedding dress appointment. There should be no stress when you are shopping for THE dress!



First Things First - Fill Out Your Bridal Profile
(Plus - Style Inspo List!)


When you’re scheduling your appointment with us online, you’ll receive a “What to Expect” email shortly afterward with all the information you’ll need, which will also include a link to complete your virtual pre-appointment consultation with us so we can be as prepared as possible for you when you arrive. 


We also offer a Style Inspo list for our brides to use on our website, which is free and totally optional! Make sure you register here so you can access this feature. Simply tap the “heart” icon on any dresses you fall in love with, and your stylist will use your list as inspiration to pull dresses at your appointment! 


Research, Research, Research


As we mentioned, your stylist will make sure to do plenty of research to find the perfect dresses for you to try on at your appointment. We’ll scour our collection ahead of time, taking note of your style preferences and any information you can offer to help us find the perfect dress. 


Gather The Crew


Your super special bridal appointment will take place in a private bridal suite that hosts the bride and up to 4 guests of your choice! Keep in mind that the people you choose for this special day need to be the most supportive, loyal people in your life. They have to support your wedding vision and know that their responsibility is to support you and encourage you while creating a fun atmosphere! 


You’ll Try On Lots of Gowns


We’re a closed concept store, which means that during your appointment, someone will be pulling gowns for you from a private closet! They will pull gowns for you based on your preferences, such as your aesthetic, venue formality, budget, and any other contributing factors. Your stylist will also utilize their knowledge of how each gown fits can be customized. Brides typically try on at least 2-3 rounds of dresses. Now, keep in mind that these dresses will not fit perfectly! Gowns are often sampled in one size and color, no matter what salon you’re shopping at. We encourage you to go into your appointment with the expectation that the stylist will illustrate what each style will look like on you.


Have a Blast Finding “The One!”


Did you know that 80 percent of our brides find their wedding dress at their very first visit? It’s true! If you “say yes” to the dress at your first appointment with us, your stylist will walk you through the next steps and what to expect from your exciting MD love story. This experience is going to be a super private and ultra-personalized one that you will NEVER forget!
