Congrats on your new job!  I don’t have anything specific really but not being pushy and truly being helpful should really set you apart!

My AA girl was awesome, she asked all about the wedding, acted genuinely interested, told me a little about herself, helped me in and out of countless lace up dresses and didn’t complain at all or make me feel like I was a PIA for wanting to try 1 dress on 3 times LOL.

Congrats on your new job!  I’m sure you will do great 🙂

For me, it is someone who will listen to what I have to say and respect that (i.e. styles, price point).  I appreciate when the consultant picks a few things that might suit me, but does not push them on me if I am really not feeling it.  I also loved hearing about the process and how everything works at the salon – in terms of the required deposit and expected delivery time, how alterations will work and a relative price so I have an idea what to expect, that kind of stuff.  Be helpful and friendly, but also don’t let people walk all over you!

@Meggonefishing: Congratulations, this is great!

For me, i always appreciate honesty! I do not need a sales person who tells me that i look good in a dress that i obviously do not like. I want to hear pros and cons, and if a style is definately not flattering, i want to know that too. But this a thing you should be careful with, it requires much empathy because not everyone is interested in hearing honest opinions 😉

One of the many things i missed when i went dress shopping was being offered accessories. I don’t want to ask for it, i would have appreciated if the sales person came up with her own ideas what kind of veil or jewelry would look good with the dress.

I was also very disappointed that i did not feel very welcome (in more than just one salon!). I always had the vision of a happy bride going to a salon and being treated like a princess :)) Of course i did not expect to get champagne and a red carpet, lol, but a bit ( or better a lot) more joy and emotion for me and my wedding was something i was hoping for but didn’t get. Instead i felt unwanted and almost like an annoying disturber, and back home i cried like a baby because i felt so miserable
