How to Prepare for the Perfect Wedding Dress Appointment

Updated: Feb 18

We’re guessing you are very excited about your wedding day? We are excited on your behalf, and can’t wait to meet you and become part of your story of love and joy. Planning a wedding is an amazing journey that you go on with your partner in life, and choosing your wedding dress is one of the most special aspects of that journey.

At The Bridal Dressing Rooms we love to help brides pick out the bridal gown that fits them perfectly in style and aesthetic, that matches the type of wedding that they are planning, and that makes them go ‘wow’. There is always that moment when it hits the bride to be, and we are always happy to be there.


If you have recently booked your wedding dress appointment, or you are preparing to book a wedding dress appointment, there are a few things you should first know.


Plan Ahead – In most cases, it makes sense for the bride to start shopping for a wedding dress around 9 months to a year prior to the wedding day. Although this is obviously not always possible, it is the optimum length of time to get that perfect wedding dress. With finding the right style, multiple fittings and alterations, and any accessories to go with it, this gives you plenty of time to get everything right and to feel entirely comfortable before you walk down the aisle in your dream wedding gown.


Listen to Your Gut (and your Stylist) – By coming to a wedding dress appointment prepared, with an idea of different styles that you like, and a budget that you are sticking to, we can help narrow down the search immediately. We also have the expertise to know what will and won’t suit you. Trust us to offer you a few options that we think would suit, but equally, you should never be afraid to say yes to the first dress you try on, if you have that wow factor and you think it is the one!


The Bridal Dressing Rooms is an independent family run bridal boutique in Portsmouth. Our mother and daughter team have carefully handpicked beautiful bridal gowns from some of the finest designers in the industry. We understand that every bride is unique, and although every bride goes through a similar process, we are happy to sit with you and go through every tiny detail about your wedding dress, and help you choose the dress that fits your personality and wedding perfectly.


You are special to us, and we look forward to meeting you and being an important part of your big day. If you would like to book an appointment with Nicola and Josette, please feel free to fill out our simple wedding dress appointment form, or call us on (023) 92 170 320.
