But we warn you that even this search can become a very stressful experience if you let it. So, we are here to remind you to not let that happen for one and to help you in your search around the Minneapolis area. There are some definite questions that you will want to be armed with as you visit area dress shops. And these are very important questions. In fact, we will go as far as to say that you do not want to leave your appointments without asking these questions. They will help you in making your final hire. So, without further adieu, we highly recommend that you have a copy of this guide with you whenever you go on your bridal shop visits.


The Minneapolis area is not lacking in the number of bridal shops that dot the area. So, with so many choices, you are probably wondering how in the world you even begin your search. Well, there are a couple of ways that you can help yourself. One way is to talk to your family, friends and coworkers about any bridal shops they may have visited or even worked with. Write down any shops that you hear about that provided excellent service and had high quality merchandise. You can also do a Google search for “bridal dress shops in the Minneapolis area.” You can start clicking on some of the results and delve into the individual websites of dress shops that popped up. If you see any quality vendors that you like, write them down. Another source is your other wedding vendors, ask them if they have any recommendations. Once you have a few good candidates to start talking to, setup an appointment with each one. One of the first things that you need to mention to the consultant that you talk to is your budget that you have setup for your gown purchase. Once they are aware of this, they will not bring out dresses that are way over your budget number. This will save you and them a lot of time.


We highly recommend that you only bring two or three of your most trusted friends to each dress shop visit. The more people you have around you talking in your ear can make things very convoluted in a hurry and that is not part of having a good time. Just like the old saying you shouldn't have too many cooks in the kitchen, too many opinions will ruin what should be an exciting time. Talk for a bit about what the consultant thinks will look flattering on you. We cannot stress enough that your wedding gown should be the best fit for your body type. Be open minded about what the consultant suggests. If the consultant sizes you up and tells you that a certain kind of dress is going to be best for your shape and size, don't be resistant but give it a shot and see what happens, you might be pleasantly surprised.


Talk about the shade of your gown with your consultant. There are a number of different shades of white to choose from. Ask the consultant which shade looks best against your complexion. Ask the consultant how much training they have received to be in this business. How many years have they been in business? Do they have any testimonials that you can read? You need to have a comfort level with the staff. Of course the price has to be where you need it to be. Ask if alterations are included in the cost of your gown. Most salons consider this an extra fee so you need to be aware of this and find out the total cost. Take your time and enjoy the process. Once you have all of the information you need based on the questions you have asked, it will be time to try dresses on until you find something that knocks you out. If that doesn't happen, move onto the next dress shop.
