Should I request an appointment at a shop to try on dresses? Or should I just be a walk in. Are appointments usually for girls who plan to try on, choose, and pay that same day? Do appointments cost money? So many questions D:

i think it’s fine to make an appointment when you are planning on just trying on dresses. i don’t think it costs any money to make an appointment

It depends on the stores policy. If it is a weekend I would suggest an appointment because that is their busy time and there may not be a consultant available to assist you.

Totally depends on the store. For most stores though you probably require one on weekends, but not all stores require it during the week. And there should not be any charge to do that.

You should always request an appointment. However, is your wedding date accurate (11/22)? If so, you may have to order off the rack unless you’re going to David’s, who tends to ship a lot faster.. My dress took 7.5 months to come in.
There should not be any charge associated with just trying on dresses. They get enough money when you buy! 🙂

Definitely make an appointment. That way you’re guaranteed a spot and consultant.

Make an appointment (they don’t cost money), but don’t tell them you’re only there to try on.

Make an appointment. Then you get a consultant that will help narrow down your choices. My consultant convinced me to try on the dress i eventually chose.
They are usually too busy for you to just walk in the store and ask to try something on.

Agree — an appointment should guarantee you a fitting room and the consultant’s attention. 😉

@undertheplanetsatchelsea: Is your wedding November 22nd, this year? As in 3 months (approximately) away?

I would definitely recommend making an appointment. A lot of bridal salons have limited number of help and fitting rooms, making an appointment makes it easier on them to find someone that can committ to you for an hour and give you a room to change it.

@Ms.Meghann: yes, as in three months from now. we had to really move the date up because my FI’s dad is shipping out in the beginning of December and won’t be back for two years.

@undertheplanetsatchelsea: Because your wedding is only 3 months away, you willlikely have to buy a dress “off the rack”, so you will need an appointment, because you will need a consultants help in order to find a dress that’s in your size, available to buy right off the rack/ buying the sample dress, and is in good condition.
Wishing you luck!

Make that appointment asap! Since you’ll most likely be buying a sample, should be a little easier. Also-if you can go during the week, it’s better. Only other advice- wear granny panties (I forgot that people would be helping me get into dresses)
