Finding your perfect wedding gown is an important event in your life! Here at Wolsfelt’s, we want you to feel totally prepared for your bridal appointment, so you can have a wonderful and enjoyable experience! Here is a little insight into how your day at Wolsfelt’s will go!:
When you walk into Wolsfelt’s beautiful, 3 level boutique, you’ll be greeted by a member of our professional Wolsfelt’s staff. After filling out a small registration card for us, your stylist will soon come out to greet you, and take you and your guests to your fitting room. There you will sit for a moment to discuss what you are looking for in your dream gown. You’ll have the chance to show your stylist pictures of gowns you like, explain the look and feel of your wedding, discuss budget, and tell your consultant about any specifications! To make your experience more comfortable and special for you, we suggest bringing a small group of no more than 5 people whose opinions you value to your appointment. Please be aware that while you try on gowns with the help of your stylist, your group will be seated on the couch in the fitting room with you. Visit our tips page for ways to be prepared for finding your perfect dress!
You will have the opportunity to look through and pull dresses to try on from a selection of special order and off-the-rack gowns! Try to remember that your stylist is a professional who knows the Wolsfelt’s stock. Your stylist will want to pull specific dresses for you that she thinks you will love. Trust her. She is wise. Many times you’ll find a beautiful dress that is total opposite of what you thought you wanted.
Your appointment will be 90 mins, and you will have your private stylist the entire time. We love being able to give our brides one-on-one special attention. Be prepared to try on 5-20 dresses, and hopefully find the perfect gown! Too many dresses can just overwhelm and frustrate a bride. If you aren’t finding something you like, or discover you may look good in a totally different style then you thought, express that with your stylist. She will know where to take you from there!
Once you find your perfect dress your stylist will measure you to find the best fit, and get you started with purchasing your gown!
Wedding gowns can take 5 to 8 months to come in, so be prepared to pay for your dress so we are able to order it right away, leave time for the dress to come in, and around 3 months for alterations. We also offer a range of buying incentives that you should ask your stylist about! Wolsfelt’s have NEVER missed a wedding in it’s 40 years of business. A part of this is that we are very diligent about our ordering and timing. (Don’t worry if your wedding is in just a couple of months! We have options for everyone!)
After you’ve found your dress, please take the opportunity to have a celebratory mani/pedi or other spa service at the Calla Lily Salon and Spa, right next door!!!
We hope this helps you feel prepared for your visit, and we can’t wait to be a part of your big day!
