How to Prepare for Your Bridal Appointment: Tips from 'The One'

Preparing for your bridal appointment is the first step toward finding your perfect wedding dress. It's your opportunity to try gorgeous gowns and find The One that makes you feel like a princess. At The One in Kansas City, we prioritize offering each of our clients a customized bridal experience, and we’ve gathered our best tips to help you prepare for this special day.


Fill out the Bridal Style Questionnaire

Once you have your bridal appointment booked, be sure to take the time to fill out the bridal-style questionnaire sent to you via email or text. It's an integral part of the process to help you find The One.

Your stylist will use this questionnaire to understand better your wedding vision and preferences, which in turn helps them pull dresses that match your style. Taking the time to answer each question accurately will ensure you have a great experience during your appointment. Sharing your design preferences will allow you to have a more successful appointment and find the dress that makes your heart skip a beat.


Develop Your Wish List

Before your bridal appointment, take some time to browse the collections on our website and put together a wish list. This will help your stylist understand the styles you are drawn to and give your team a head start on finding The One. Our collections feature exquisite gowns from top designers in an array of fabrics, necklines, silhouettes, embellishments, and train lengths. The possibilities are endless!


Invite Your Closest Friends

Inviting your closest family and friends to accompany you to your bridal appointment is a great way to celebrate and make this special moment even more memorable. They will be able to provide valuable insights and advice that you wouldn't have otherwise, allowing you to hear different perspectives while you try on gowns.

Your support system will be able to see you more objectively and focus on the positive aspects of each dress, which may encourage you to think about styles you wouldn't have otherwise considered. With their help, you may find The One sooner than expected!


Plan to Wear Nude Undergarments

When trying on wedding dresses, make sure to wear nude undergarments, including nude underwear. Avoid wearing white, as it can be distracting and affect a dress's appearance. If you plan to wear shapewear, choose something that matches your skin tone.


Style Your Hair

If you have a particular hairstyle in mind for your wedding day, consider styling your hair before your appointment. Whether you plan to wear an updo, long loose curls, or something else unique to you, having your hair in the style you envision can help you visualize how the dress will look on your special day. You can either have it professionally done or style it according to what you have in mind.

Wearing make-up is optional, although it can help you feel more glamorous while trying dresses. As with your hair, if you can try to keep things close to how you envision them on your wedding day, it will give you a better idea of how everything will look together.


Come with an Open Mind

It's essential to come into the bridal appointment with an open mind. An open mind will enable you to explore different styles and find the perfect dress for your special day. Without a preconceived notion of your dream dress, you can better understand which styles will look best on you and get a fuller picture of what The One could look like. Additionally, you won't believe how amazing some silhouettes will make you look, which you will never know until you try them on!
