Planning a wedding is one of the most exciting times in a bride’s life, and the search for the perfect wedding gown is a highlight of that journey! At Elegant Bridals in Augusta, GA, we’re here to make your bridal appointment a magical and memorable experience. To help you get the most out of your visit, we’ve put together this comprehensive Bridal Appointment Handbook. Read on to discover everything you need to know before you go!

At Elegant Bridals, we pride ourselves on offering the largest selection of wedding gowns in the southeast. Whether you’re looking for something traditional, modern, or uniquely you, we have a dress that will make your heart sing. Our extensive collection includes a variety of sizes, price points, and silhouettes, ensuring that every bride finds her dream dress.


What to Expect During Your Appointment

Your bridal appointment at Elegant Bridals will last 1.5 hours, giving you plenty of time to explore our beautiful gowns and find the one that’s perfect for you. Here’s a glimpse of what you can expect:

Warm Welcome and Consultation
As you walk through our doors, you’ll be greeted by our friendly staff and introduced to your bridal stylist. On our busier days (or days when a stylist is still finishing up with another bride) we will check you in and have you wait in our lounge area for the stylist to come and get you. There are light refreshments while you and your party waits. We’ll start with a brief chat to understand your vision, preferences, and budget!

Personalized Dress Selection
Based on your input, your stylist will curate a selection of gowns for you to try on. This is where the fun begins! You’ll have the chance to explore different styles and silhouettes, guided by your stylist’s expert advice! 

The Try-On Experience

Step into our fitting room and let the magic happen. As you try on each gown, your stylist will be there to assist, offering feedback and helping you visualize how each dress fits your wedding day vision.

The “Yes!” Moment

There’s nothing quite like the moment when you find “the one.” We strive to make this experience as special as possible, celebrating with you as you say “Yes!” to your dress.

What to Bring to Your Appointment

To ensure you have the best experience possible, we recommend bringing the following items to your appointment:

Proper Undergarments: Nude-colored undergarments and a strapless bra will help you see how the dress will truly look.
Inspiration: Photos or a Pinterest board of dresses you love can help guide your stylist in selecting gowns that match your vision.
Trusted Guests: Bring a few close friends or family members whose opinions you value. Too many voices can be overwhelming, so we recommend limiting your entourage to 2-3 people.
