Q2. Can I bring my entire wedding party to help me choose a gown?

A2. Don't shop with a group! A committee is always a disaster. Shop with just one other person whose taste you trust. Rely on your own judgment and expertise of the wedding consultant.

Q3. I'm not sure what I like. Should I try on everything?

A3. While it's a good idea to try on different styles, you will know very quickly what looks good and what doesn't. It is important to listen to the advise of the bridal consultant. The staff of Bridal Creations know their stock and may help you find your perfect gown in half the time!

Q4. When is a good time to shop? Should I make an appointment?

A4. The busiest time for any store is the weekends. If you are nervous or shy around crowds, try and avoid shopping on a Saturday. Instead, inquire about the nights the store is open or come during the week. However, do not try to shop on your lunch break. This is not a purchase to be rushed! While appointments are not always nessasary, they are appreciated.

Q5. My bridesmaids can't agree on a dress. What should I do?

A5. The days of putting all your girls in one gown are passing. Many companies now offer "Mix and Match" programs for bridesmaids. The bride can choose her colour and the bridesmaids can choose gowns that flatter their individual shapes and taste. A win/win situation for everyone! You can view our Alfred Angelo Mix and Match here.

Q6. Are alterations included in the purchase of my gown?

A6. Many shops do not offer alteration services as part of your purchase. They will, however, offer discounts on other purchases (bridesmaids, mother of the bride/groom gowns) and refer you to a dependable, resonable priced seamstress.
