While hunting for your wedding dress can be a fun and exciting time, it can also be overwhelming. To have the best experience at Luxx Nova Bridal during your wedding dress appointment, we’ve prepared some helpful tips for you to consider. We can’t wait to welcome you here!
Get To Know Our Styles & Design
Luxx Nova Bridal in Vancouver carries unique wedding dresses from European designers. Our selection differs from what other bridal shops in Vancouver offer. Our gowns are famous for contemporary style, intricate design, luxurious fabrics and exquisite décor. We believe that wedding dresses don’t have to be white, so we have a wide selection of nude, champagne, blush, and ivory.
To prepare for your bridal appointment, we recommend checking out the wedding dress styles we carry ahead of time.
Pick Your Squad
Remember, sometimes less is more! Often, many different opinions can be stressful and slightly overwhelming. Your goal as a bride is to have a fantastic, memorable, and positive bridal fitting experience. This is also going to be a once in a lifetime experience!
Since we don’t want our brides to be overwhelmed, we suggest that brides keep their group to one or two people. We recommend inviting only those who are closest to you; people who know you best, will give you the best experience, and will help you find your dream dress!
For some brides it works best when they come alone for the first appointment to narrow down their choice to 2-3 favorite dresses. Then they invite their loved ones for a second appointment to make a final decision.
Don’t Schedule More Than 2 Bridal Appointments In A Day
We know wedding dress shopping is very exciting! It’s so fun to make a day of it with your girls, but bridal shopping can be tiring! If you have too many wedding dress appointments set up, you’ll have too many options and will struggle to make a decision.
Don’t Judge A Dress By Photos Only
Many times, brides take photos of the favorite dresses they’ve tried on to help them choose THE ONE afterwards. We understand that these memories are precious! However, we ask that brides don’t judge their dresses later on by photos only! Phone photos never do the dresses justice (although we promise we aren’t questioning your mom’s photography skills…)
When you’re looking at the photos of your favorite dresses later, you might think that your pose wasn’t the most flattering, the lighting wasn’t great, and the clips in the back take away some of the dress’ charm. As you look at the photos, remember how the dress made you feel, if it took your breath away, and, most importantly, if it felt like you.
Be open to new ideas and consider different options. You never know what you’re going to like until you try a few wedding dresses on. More often than not, brides end up buying something completely different from what they envisioned and saved to their Pinterest Board.
Don’t Be Afraid To Be Different
Don’t look back at what your friends have worn for their weddings. There’s no such thing as a cookie-cutter mold for being a bride. Be free of stereotypes and don’t be afraid to be unique and stand out with your dress! Follow your heart and embrace your individual style.
Trust Your Luxx Nova Stylist
It’s important to trust your Luxx Nova bridal stylist! We’re here to help guide you through the process of finding your dream wedding dress.
Our stylists know everything about each dress at Luxx Nova Bridal Boutique and have experience with each gown and each designer that’s in the shop. They’ve seen the dresses on tons of brides! They have extensive knowledge about the gowns and can suggest customizations about certain dresses to ensure the dress is exactly what you’re looking for. Feel free to be honest and open with your opinions and feelings about the dresses you try on. It’s your feedback and concerns about the dresses you try on that will help our stylists direct you to the perfect one.
How To Know If It’s The One
You know it’s the right dress for you when you don’t want to take it off. Or it’s the dress that you compare every other dress to. Or, as you see yourself in the mirror, you start to tear up.
It’s important to remember though that not every “YES” moment involves crying or applauding. Every experience is different, and what’s important to remember is to follow your gut. Just like knowing your fiancé was the one, when it feels right, you’ll know.
Don’t Be Afraid To Say Yes
It may be your first bridal fitting appointment, but when you find THE ONE, don’t be afraid to say yes. To continue shopping simply to extend the experience is only going to result in indecision. When you find your dress and can see yourself walking down the aisle to your forever, don’t be afraid to say YES.
