There have been several articles popping up online about what to expect when you embark on your bridal gown shopping experience, and I wanted to add Flutter's perspective to the narrative.
Since we pride ourselves on our exclusive and intimate experience, we want our bride's to have a little insight about how we approach each and every appointment.
First and foremost, we are here for you, and 100% on your side.
We care about every single one of our brides, and our only goal is to help you find your perfect dress. Hopefully that's with us. But if it's not, that's okay too. We curate your appointment to you and your experience, and want to know every detail about your wedding. We also want to know about where you are in your bridal search. Are we your first stop? Great! Have you been to several other shops in town? That's good too, and we'd love to hear about your experience, and if there are dresses that you have your eye on. We want to know what we are up against :) Being up front and honest with us can only help us in assisting you.
YOU are our priority.
We limit the number of guests for our bridal appointments for a reason. Finding your dress can be stressful and overwhelming. While your voice should be the only one that matters, sometimes it gets swallowed up and overshadowed by a large entourage of adoring fans. We know you may have certain key decision makers who need to be along for the ride. And we love that. But ultimately, this is YOUR wedding dress, and it is your voice and opinion that matters above everyone else. We are here to make sure that you are heard.
We are very candid, open and honest with our brides, and are happy to speak up on your behalf. We also recommend having conversations with your group ahead of time if you are feeling stressed out by the appointment. Explaining your expectations is never a bad thing.
You don't have to love everything. But it's okay if you do.
You are going to be a gorgeous bride no matter what dress you decide on. You may come in with an idea of what you want. And that might be exactly what you end up with. You might also realize that everything you thought you wanted is exactly OPPOSITE of what you love. And you also might not like a single thing you try on. Or you may love everything! What a terrible problem to have :)
Also, trust in the fact that we know our collection and designers inside and out. We love recommending dresses for brides, and especially love sharing the inside scoop about each dress and designer. We are happy to answer any and all questions. Many of our designers offer customizations, and we are in constant direct contact with all of them!
Ultimately, there will be one that you keep thinking about and comparing every other dress to. Don't be afraid to say YES when you know it's right.
You're not just a sale to us- you're now a Flutter bride. And we don't take that for granted.
We care about each and every one of our brides, and take pride in the experience we offer from beginning to end. Trust that we are in constant communication with our designers, making sure we are up to date on all our orders, and we keep you in the loop as well! As a small business, every interaction is important, and we go above and beyond to make sure all of our brides are completely satisfied.
At the end of the day, we are here for you.
Remember that. We are here to make this fun, easy and memorable. Let us.
