Embarking on the quest for the perfect wedding dress is an exciting and memorable journey. Your first appointment at Adella Bridal Atelier marks the beginning of this exciting adventure.
In this blog post, we’ll guide you through what to expect at your very first wedding dress appointment with us, helping you make the most of this special, unique, and luxury experience we offer.
Warm Welcome and Consultation
As you step into our luxury atelier at Ketteringham Hall, be prepared for a warm and welcoming atmosphere, from one of us! I work alongside Donna, Maddy and Amy. We all have different perspectives, and creative styling ideas. Each of us tailor these to match our bride’s vision. Your appointment at Adella Bridal is totally bespoke. Before you enter our showroom, we like to connect with every one of our brides. Each bride receives a questionnaire before their appointment. This allows us to prepare for your appointment, making sure each bride has a personalised, and customised service. We are here to make your experience enjoyable and stress-free.
The appointment typically begins with a one-on-one consultation, where we will get to know you, your personal style, and the vision you have for your dream gown. This is your time to share any specific preferences, themes, or details you’ve been dreaming of for your wedding day attire. We always love to see your engagement rings… so please show us! We love our job and want to share in every one of our brides’ excitement.
Exploring Styles and Silhouettes
Once your preferences are clear, we will select some gowns for you. Some will match your vision, but we will also choose some ‘wild cards.’ These are dresses we believe will suit you but may not have been a style you had initially thought about. We do this, so we can showcase the variety of our collections. Don’t be afraid to try on these different styles, even those you may not have considered initially – you might be surprised by what suits you best. We will then invite you and your entourage to select some gowns you are drawn to. At Adella Bridal, we feel it’s so important for our brides, to touch and browse our gowns… that’s the fun part!
Trying on Dresses
The heart of the appointment is the dress fitting itself. We will assist you in selecting dresses to try on based on your preferences. As you slip into each gown, take note of how it feels, both physically and emotionally. Pay attention to the details, from the neckline to the train, and consider how each dress aligns with your vision for your wedding day.
We are here to guide you, so don’t hesitate to communicate openly. If there are aspects you love or dislike about a particular dress, share your thoughts. Be honest about how you feel in each gown. This feedback helps us refine our selections and tailor our recommendations to your preferences.
Accessorising and Personalising
In addition to the dresses, you’ll have the opportunity to explore accessories in our beautiful Accessories Hall, adjacent to our showroom. The fun certainly doesn’t end after your appointment. Sit back and relax with a glass of bubbly at our bar. Veils, headpieces, and belts can enhance and personalise your look. Experimenting with these accessories during the appointment allows you to envision the complete ensemble and make informed decisions about your overall bridal style.
Your first wedding dress appointment at Adella Bridal is an exhilarating step in your journey to finding the perfect gown. Embrace the experience, enjoy the process, and trust that the right dress is waiting to be discovered. With open communication, a sense of adventure, and the guidance of us, as your bridal consultants, you’re well on your way to walking down the aisle in the wedding dress of your dreams.
