Here are our 5 favorite tips at Nicole Bridal & Formal Shoppe for brides visiting a wedding salon for the first time:


  1. Have an idea of what style you may like in a gown, but be open to suggestions from your sales consultant.  We also want you to look your best.
  2. Shop with a smaller group rather than an entourage of individuals. Too many opinions often confuse the bride rather than help.
  3. Have a budget in mind. Trying on gowns double the price of your budget is not recommended.
  4. Keep your venue in mind regarding the style of gown. For example, a beach setting calls for a lighter, softer bridal look.
  5. Don’t stress, try to enjoy the experience. Besides, finding your groom/partner was the hardest part!


Finally, brides ask us if there are any essential items to bring to the appointment. Just bring yourself--we have bras and shoes to assist in dressing you.
