Can Only One Bridal Shop Experience Be Enough?

Can only one bridal shop experience be enough?

Yes, Yes & No.

 

Yes, only one bridal shop experience can be enough, especially when you find “THE” dress.  SoBridal Store Experienceme times it just happens.  It is your first experience and time shopping for a wedding dress and you have that wow moment and say “YES”.  Don’t be surprised if it was the first one you tried on either.  I happens more often than you would think.  Don’t doubt yourself or your feelings.  Most brides will know right away.  Many times, you will have those important to you with you on your first visit.  These influential and important people are there to enjoy, embrace, and celebrate with you.  As your number of bridal visits continue, it becomes harder and harder for schedules to work with yours.  Embrace that one day, especially if it is the right dress.

Wedding Dress DesignersYes, one bridal shop experience can be enough, especially at This Magic Moment Bridal Studio.  When you join us, you know you are getting gorgeous designer dresses at extremely discounted prices.  We are often able to offer discounts beyond what a bridal store may offer.  Therefore, down the street is not going to make a difference.  One special reason brides come to us is because we offer a wide variety of designers.  Many bridal stores have only 2 or 3 designer lines.  We currently have over 25 designers.  You will have that opportunity in one place to try on more styles, more varieties, more designers, and more colors than at most bridal stores.  If you don’t like one styles or fit, we have a variety of other choices to make sure you find the dress that fits and flatters you the best.

No, one bridal shop experience is not enough, only when you didn’t find that dress to say yes to.  It happens and it is OK.  Sometimes, one place just doesn’t have the inventory or selection available that you want, especially if you are seeking a very unique style or color.  Or, we find some brides who are just so nSay Yes To The Dresservous and indecisive that they can’t make a decision right away.  Often times, going to lunch and viewing the photo’s, and/or trying another bridal store helps to affirm whether that was the dress is necessary.  If you find yourself at the next place comparing everything to that one you loved earlier, guess what, you found it!

Lastly, relax and enjoy your experiences, whether one or more.  This is a special time so enjoy the moment.  Happy Wedding Dress Shopping!!!

Never guess a wedding dress by the bag!

wedding dress

Never guess a wedding dress by the bag it is in.  When you are looking at gowns enclosed in even clear bags on racks, you have no idea of the beauty that lies inside unless you take it out.  The bags are great because they protect your dress from dirt, snags, tears, and discolorations, so they are absolutely necessary.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen a dress in the bag and never gave it a second glance.  Then, it was taken out and tried on, and I couldn’t believe my eyes.  This wedding dress I so easily passed over was beyond gorgeous and stunning.  The front had so much more to be seen in the lines and details,  Then, I turned it over to the back and it was unbelievable.  The trains on so many dresses are pulled up and hidden, and they are what brides fall in love with the dress so many times.

Not only do you need to take it out, but you have to try it on.  You will never know if it is flattering or not until it is on your very own body.  So many brides come in with Pinterest pictures of the perfect sized model, with perfect photo alterations, and want only that dress.  Very rarely does it ever work that way.  Be open minded, and if something sparks your eye, try it on!  Until then, you will never know what looks best and amazes you the most.  And, always remember, have fun finding that magical wedding dress and trying it on.  Make happy wedding memories!  Hugs!

Best Bridal Wars Around!

 

Best Bridal Wars Around!

Pittsburgh just had the Best Bridal Wars around yesterday!  Teams of three, one bride and two bridesmaids, came together to battle against each other.  These ladies went all out decorating their costumes to match their creative team names.  Just a few great team names were Hot Mess Express, Muscles & Mascara, To The Alter & Beyond, and Diamonds in the Tough!  Costumes ranged from veils, garter belts, bling, tutu’s, and super hero capes!  Some even had wings.  But that was just the start of all the fun.  With over 15 cool vendors, each table offered a special game for these team to compete in.

Each vendor’s table declared a winner.  This Magic Moment Bridal Studio’s Bridal War game was “Who Wore it Best!”.  Each team member had to put on a wedding dress, run down the field, pick up a monster diamond ring or bouquet, and return for the best time.  Our team winner was the Spice Girls!  They were amazing coming in at only 47 seconds for all three ladies to run the course.  Marki Mark and the Funky Bunch came in a close second at 57 seconds.  No matter the time, all the teams were awesome.  They had smiles on their faces, worked together as a team, and laughed until their ribs hurt!  Us included.  It was the most exciting, energetic and fun bridal show we have ever been to.

One lucky bride who won the entire event was awarded $1000 towards her wedding!  Plus, hundred of dollars and prizes were given away to many other teams for their participation and amazing bridal team spirit.  We can’t wait for Bridal Wars Pittsburgh to return again soon.  Plus, we hope the brides and their friends we met will come visit This Magic Moment Bridal Studio soon.  We enjoyed the fun, laughter, and spirit from everyone.  Make sure to watch this fun video of all the excitement and special brides and their teams from yesterday.

Tips for shopping with us!

Tips for Shopping With Us!

Some helpful and simple tips to make your wedding shopping experience as best as possible.  Do you have a style or silhouette in mind before you come to the bridal studio? Share the style with your consultant so that she may select dresses for your initial try on. If you’ve already tried on a trumpet or A-line  and absolutely know that will not work for you, sharing it with your consultant will make it easier to find your gown.

Our brides at This Magic Moment Bridal Studio never worry they are trying on too many gowns.   Our bridal consultants want you to feel the best you can on your wedding day and it is our job to help you navigate through the process of picking your gown. Honestly we love helping you and when we see you in your gown for the first time we might cry with you too.

Try to resist trying on gowns that are over two sizes larger than your size. You may be drawn to a certain silhouette or applique but once you start to have alterations done the gown will lose a lot of its integrity. It is our goal to try to fit you as closely to a perfect fit as we can . Our idea of alterations would be as minimal as possible. Not to mention this will also save you tons of money .

Make sure you invite the important decision makers with you . Due to the nature of how we get our dresses and the fact we can not order them.  We would hate for you to leave without your dress because someone was missing from your entourage . Of course we are always happy to take pictures and even send video to someone who can not make it. Technology can be your best friend when you are planning your wedding.

Some other quick tips that will help your shopping experience is to come in makeup free and hair up. It really help to see the top or back of your gown when your hair is up. Bring along a pair of heels that you think are the size you will wear with your dress . And if you have any special undergarments bring them along so you can have the best fish ever .

We hope you find these tips and hints helpful , it is our pleasure to assist you and we look forward to helping you soon.
