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!

7 Great Ways to Sweat Before the Dress!

Sweat before the Dress

Time to sweat before the dress!  Yes, we all want to look fabulous on our wedding day.  It’s not all about weight, but that works too.  Looking fit and lean is not only good for us to fit into our wedding dress, its going for our health and state of mind.  We’ve compiled seven fantastic workout options for local brides who want to look and feel their best on the big day.  A little sweat before the dress can always clear the mind and refresh the body.

We all know working out is not our favorite thing to do but the push to be be fit before the dress is hard to ignore. Share with us your best work out tips and favorite places to work out in the Burgh. It is always better to do it together than alone.  Our accountability partner(s) can be some of the best time we share together in friendships.  Challenging each other, sweating together before the dress, and getting fit and healthy are great ways to live.  It doesn’t have to be an all day event either.  Make it fit in your schedule.  Make it fun.  Make it a lifestyle.  I personally LOVE fresh air and enjoy a good nature hike.

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.
