the appointments

Who to bring:

As the day approaches, you will be faced with the choice of deciding who to bring with you. Should it be your mum, your future mother-in-law, your sisters, your best friends or all of them? It can get very complicated. But take it from us: The fewer people you bring, the better. The more people you have with you, the more opinions you will hear. This generally just adds confusion to an already confusing situation. Invite the one person whose opinion you trust and who you know will be honest with you.

What to bring:

Generally it is good to bring with you a strapless bra. If you know you'll be wearing stockings on your wedding day, then I suggest wearing them to try on dresses as well. The same goes for shoes. If you would not consider wearing anything but platform heels, then by all means bring a pair with you to try on dresses. Also, keep in mind that the sales consultant will be in the dressing room with you to help you in and out of the dresses. If you are a very modest person, you may want to choose your undergarments accordingly.

Information to have with you:

When you arrive and meet the consultant that will be helping you, she will spend a few minutes getting to know you. Tell her as much information as you can about the type of wedding you're having. For example, describe the venue, the guests' attire, the time of year and any other information you can think of that will give a good picture of your wedding.

Guide the sales consultant:

Bring to the appointment any dress pictures you've pulled from magazines. If you have tried on other dresses, tell the sales consultant which styles you've liked. This information will help her pull the dresses that match what you're looking for. Also, be honest about your budget. The last thing either of you wants is for you to fall in love with a dress that you can't afford.

Let her guide you:

The consultant knows her inventory of dresses well, so be open-minded to what she suggests. Of course, if you feel the consultant is really not zoning in on what you're looking for, be sure to assert yourself in a nice way. If you don't, you'll be wasting your time and hers.

Recognising "the one":

Tearing up? Can't stop looking at it in the mirror? Congratulations! Go have a glass of champagne and toast your future. You've found the dress you'll be wearing when it begins!
