FAQs

  • Introduction

    The wedding dress is arguably one of the most important parts of the ceremony for the bride, so finding the right one can be a monumental task. Turning to the experts can be tremendously helpful, as bridal salons provide valuable services that help make the shopping experience a good one for brides and their all-things-bridal support group.

    Preparing to start shopping for that perfect wedding gown, but not sure where to start? Review some helpful information about bridal shops, wedding dress shopping, and what to expect with these bridal salon FAQs.
  • What is a bridal salon?

    Bridal salons are shops that cater to brides. They sell wedding gowns, bridesmaids’ dresses, and other bridal accessories. Most offer stylist consultations and alteration services. They often operate on an appointment-only basis, giving the bride an exclusive experience. They also have seating areas for guests of the bride, such as select family and friends.

  • Are more dads going to bridal salons with their daughters?

    Traditionally, it was common to see moms with their daughters instead of dads at the bridal salon. However, that’s been changing over the past several years as more fathers get involved earlier in the wedding planning stages. It’s now common for both fathers and mothers to accompany the bride-to-be.

  • Do bridal salons purchase wedding dresses?

    Bridal salons generally don’t buy used wedding dresses outright, but some salons accept gently used, high-quality wedding gowns on consignment. They pay the owner an agreed-upon amount after the gown sells. Contact the salon first to ask about their policies and rules regarding pre-owned dresses.

  • Do you tip at a bridal salon?

    Gratuities for the salon consultant typically aren’t required or expected. However, tipping the seamstress may be appropriate when extensive alterations are required and the bride is incredibly happy with the outcome or the vendor went above and beyond, such as completing a rush order.

  • How do bridal salons get dresses?

    Bridal shops source inventory through various methods. They may order a selection of custom gowns for brides to try on and then special order a special custom-made gown for the bride. Some salons order direct from the manufacturer or wholesaler, and many shops supplement their inventory with pre-owned dresses.

  • How many bridal salons should you visit?

    Visiting three or four bridal salons is usually sufficient. Avoid trying on too many dresses, or the experience may become confusing and overwhelming. Discuss your preferences with the stylist first and work with them to choose between four and seven dresses to try on before making a final choice.
