Updated: Aug 25, 2023

Welcome to Gigi’s Bridal, where we celebrate the joyous journey of finding the perfect wedding dress. At Gigi’s Bridal, we understand that choosing the gown for your special day is a momentous occasion filled with excitement, emotions, and dreams. As a bride-to-be, you deserve an unforgettable experience that reflects your unique style and showcases your inner radiance. In this blog, we aim to simplify your wedding gown shopping experience and equip you with the confidence to discover your bridal look.

If you're planning your wedding, working with a bridal stylist can be a great way to ensure that you look and feel your best on your big day. Here are some things you should be sure to share with your bridal stylist to make the most of your time together:

Logistics & Vision

Share your wedding theme or color palette with your stylist so that they can suggest accessories or other items that complement the overall aesthetic of your wedding. Details of your wedding venue, including the season and location, are also relevant to share with your stylist so that they can recommend dresses and accessories that are appropriate for the setting.

Be clear about your timeline and when you need to have your dress and accessories ready. This will help your stylist recommend designers or dresses that can be delivered on time. If you are planning a destination wedding it is crucial to share with your stylist your travel timeline.

Insecurities and favorite attributes

This one is going to require us to be a bit vulnerable. Sharing your insecurities and favorite attributes with a bridal stylist can help them understand your preferences, concerns, and style choices better.

t's important to be honest about your insecurities and preferences. Remember that the stylist's role is to help you feel beautiful and confident on your wedding day. Share any concerns you have about your body, such as areas you might feel self-conscious about or features you'd like to highlight. Let the stylist know if there are certain styles or cuts that you feel uncomfortable wearing. This could include considerations like sleeve length, skirt volume, or neckline depth. Providing these details will help the stylist find options that align with your comfort level while still reflecting your style.

As much time as you spend on your dislikes, be sure to equally spend time (if not more!) on what you do love and and would like to accentuate. It could be your waistline, collarbones, back, or any other feature you feel confident about. Highlighting your favorite attributes will help the stylist select designs and details that enhance those areas.

By sharing your insecurities and favorite attributes with your bridal stylist, you can build a collaborative relationship that ensures you find a wedding dress that makes you feel confident, beautiful, and true to your personal style.

Personal Style

At Gigi’s Bridal this is a big one for us. Whether you are very in touch with your style or believe you don’t have one (ps you do!) Gigi's Bridal is here to translate your personal style into a wedding day look that brings out your confidence and inner beauty.

Let your bridal stylist know what styles, fabrics, and colors you're drawn to, and which ones you definitely want to avoid. Bring pictures of dresses that you like or dislike to give your stylist a better idea of your preferences.

Share with your stylist what you know about your personal style and the types of clothes you feel most comfortable in. This will help your stylist recommend dresses and accessories that feel like "you" and that you'll feel confident wearing on your wedding day.

By sharing this information with your bridal stylist, you can work together to find the perfect dress and accessories for your wedding day.
