We love helping our brides find their dream wedding gown! Even our most opinionated clients sometimes have difficulty making their final decision, and this is another question we are often asked by brides.
Q: When I get my gown narrowed down to the top two or three wedding gowns, can my stylist just tell me which one to pick?
A: Selecting the perfect bridal gown is an extremely personal decision. But surprisingly, some of our brides do ask this very question! While our experienced stylists are happy to offer professional opinions all along the way regarding shape, fit, color and silhouettes, we cannot tell a bride which gown is THE gown for her.
Our experts will review the goals the bride shared during the initial interview. Was her vision to find something romantic, comfortable, feminine? Did she desire an eloquent, formal and princess-like gown? Or perhaps her goal was to find a gown that was modern, chic and unique. Which of the “finalist” gowns best match her vision? The final decision must be up to the bride. Which gown best suits her personality? Which one makes her feel most beautiful? Which gown can she truly see herself walking down the aisle wearing?
The gown needs to be “her” and the bride must make her own choice, just as she did for her groom!
Chances are that among your wedding guests, you will have a lot of couples who enjoy a happy, successful marriage. Why not tap into what they know and ask them for a little advice? We adore these cute advice coasters you can have out for guests to fill in during your cocktail hour.
Several stationery lines offer many different styles to choose from, with options ranging from elegant to cheeky! Stardust carries a collection of customizable coasters in round, square and octagon shapes! Come in and our stationery expert can walk you through ordering some for your big day. These would be a great keepsake; what a fun tradition to get them out on your anniversary to re-read each year!
We are encountering a strange phenomenon in the bridal industry this year. Many brides are trying to order their wedding gowns way too close to their wedding days or portrait dates. As they saying goes, time is money, and when you don’t allow enough time for your gown to be made, you might be stuck paying BIG rush fees.
A few months ago, we started noticing this becoming a problem when brides who waited too long to order their bridal gowns started incurring higher rush charges. As time went on, we discovered that this trend is not unique to Dallas and some wedding gown companies are struggling to keep up with the last-minute rush demand. They even occasionally cannot deliver gowns in time! The companies cannot accommodate the rush requests because there are simply too many!
Sweet brides, we all know the last thing you need is stress regarding your wedding dress! At Stardust, we strongly urge brides to purchase their wedding gowns seven to eight months before their wedding date. This will ensure that you have four to six weeks for alterations and two months to take your bridal portrait before your wedding. Since the wedding gowns at Stardust are custom made, it takes approximately four to five months to make the gown, depending on the designer. Please do not worry about losing weight. Most gowns can be altered at least two sizes without any problem.
