What to expect in your first Bridal Appointment

What to expect in your first Bridal Appointment

You’ve got the ring, you’ve got your fiancé – now all you need is a dress! Shopping at Archela Bridal is the perfect place to start.  We have a reputation of having friendly and fun Bridal Consultants who are not only experts in helping their Brides find the perfect Bridal Gown, but promise to do so while making the experience a fun and special time.  We have rounded out the top things you can expect during your first Bridal appointment.

During your first appointment, efficiency is key! Archela consultants know every single wedding dress we have, and once they identify your likes, preferences, and, most important, what you feel comfortable and happy in, they’ll narrow down which wedding dresses to bring to your fitting room.  You will have the chance to browse and try on any gowns you absolutely love, but our consultants also love making suggestions for something they think will be absolutely fantastic for you.

Below is a breakdown of what happens at your Archela Bridal appointment but remember — your trusted consultant, your very own Bridal Stylist, will keep you on track!

Be greeted by your personal consultant. Once you arrive at our showroom and check in at reception, you’ll be greeted by one of our highly knowledgeable consultants to start your day at Archela Bridal.

Browse through our collection. You’ll be introduced to our gown collection and explain some of the top Designers we have in store.  You will have the chance to put your personal belongings in your fitting room, so you are free to browse through the collection and have a look at any gowns that catch your eye.

Share all of your wedding details. While browsing, your stylist will talk over any of your wedding details (think venue, wedding date and more), but most importantly you’ll discuss your style and wedding dresses you love (make sure to bring along some inspiration!) as well as your budget.

Head to the dressing room. Once you have had a few moments to browse, you will select your favourite gowns to try with your consultant and you will move the the dressing rooms to start trying on!

Try on dresses! Your consultant will bring you between 3-6 dresses to try on based on the information you’ve given them, and from your opinions on these dresses, you’ll try on similar styles narrowing down your selection to your favourite.

Complete your look. Once you have found your favourite, we can start completing your bridal look with a veil, jewellery, or accessories.

Say ‘Yes!’ Get excited—you’ve found your dream dress! But don’t fret if you haven’t — we’ll schedule another complimentary appointment for you to try on more dresses or retry that favourite again so you can be ready and more confident to say Yes in your second appointment.
