Mountain House on Sunday River 03-20-17

As a bride to-be, you will take part in one of the most exciting events within your wedding planning, your wedding dress shopping! With many styles of gowns to choose from, along with the details and even the color, you may seem a bit overwhelmed as you begin browsing boutiques for “the one”.

However, if you are aware of some of the thoughts that cross a bride’s mind as she conducts her own wedding dress shopping, you may be a little more at ease.

Here at Mountain House on Sunday River, we are so grateful with the opportunity to assist in planning and hosting weddings! That’s why we have gathered some of the most often thought of aspects of wedding dress shopping. If you would like to learn more, be sure to continue reading:

  • Why is assistant handing me dresses that I don’t want to try on? Never underestimate the power of the boutique’s assistant’s knowledge. All too often, bride’s hearts are set on one style of dress, before they even know if that kind is best for their body. Trying on at least one dress in every style may open your eyes to a whole new look that you may have not even considered prior to your appointment. So, have trust in your assistant, and know that they do this for a living, and are only seeking your best interests for your wedding dress shopping experience.
  • I’m having too much fun, why stop? While you may be enjoying trying on a multitude of dresses, it is important to know when to stop. Once you find “the one”, and tears of joy flood your eyes, it is time to slip back into your clothes and make the purchase! Trying on too many dresses will begin to cloud your judgement, and have you second guessing a dress that may be just perfect for you.
  • The dresses I am trying on are so heavy! Yes, within your wedding dress consultation, you will try on an array of dresses that will feel as though they are weighing you down. However, it is important to remember that these dresses are often provided in much larger sizes, as a way to allow any size woman to try them on. So, know that your gown will be altered to fit you perfectly, and you certainly won’t be swimming within a heavy abundance of fabric.

Your wedding dress should be perfect, along with your wedding! Here at Mountain House on Sunday River, we are more than ready to host your wonderful big day. If you are still on the hunt for a stunning Newry, Maine wedding venue, please contact us today to schedule your tour.
