You are spending a LOT of money on a wedding dress. They can do the work. Anyone who gives you a hard time about not knowing exactly what you want doesn’t deserve the sale imo.

I think they like it when you’re open to trying things.  I brought in a few pictures, but was pretty open to suggestions.  I ended up buying a dress that the consultant pulled that I had laughed at on the hanger.

I’d say that they’d probably prefer a bride like you over someone who is picky and picks apart all of their dresses (like me) lol. I specifically remember telling the salesperson/my Maid/Matron of Honor that the one dress I tried on had fish gills & that I felt like Jesus in the other one they picked out. Haha.

I’m sure sales consultants get peeved from time to time. It’s challenging working with the public, different personality types and then add all the emotions that come along with a wedding…yup, they’re going to get upset time to time. With that said, it is still the consultants job to provide the best customer service possible!  It sounds like you have a certain idea in mind which ultimately facilitate the search for your perfect dress.

I was a bridal consultant for a while and from my personal experience the consultant who works with you will most likely appreciate you being open to different styles! They (will/did?) probably ask you to try a few different styles to see what you’re comfortable in and what looks best on you. From there you’ll see what fabrics/detailling you like and that fit your style. ChantelleyLace is right, it’s the girls who are looking for something *VERY* specific and look for flaws in the dresses that are the most difficult to work with. Now being a bride myself I can understand wanting everything to be just right, so there’s my two cents for what it’s worth. Hope you have an amazing experience! 🙂

I work at a bridal shop and I would love to work with a bride like you!! Its nice to have some ideas of what you like, but the fact that you are open to other things makes the consultant’s job so much easier.  I know I’ve pulled some dresses for brides that didn’t meet their criteria, but they end up loving the dress.  If the consultant gets pissed….she needs to stop working at a bridal shop.
