What to Expect
I’ve been called magical, a fairy godmother, and a wedding dress whisperer, but you can call me Malinda.
Your Dream Bridal offers ultra-personalized bridal dress education in a comfortable, private setting. I’ll listen to your vision, ask the right questions, and help you create a dress that will fit your style, vision, and values so you can be comfortable, beautiful, and totally you on your wedding day.
First things first: it’s not just about the dress.
This is how we do it.
With just a few clicks, you can reserve the boutique with a private appointment online. Before your visit, explore my dress selection online and complete your style quiz so that we can make the most of your time at the shop.
At your appointment, you’ll have the entire boutique, and me, to yourself. We’ll start by discussing your budget, wedding date, and vision. Next, I’ll share some insights about how to find the right dress. Up to five guests can get comfy on the sofas and prepare to support and celebrate you. We also have a Zoom wall to allow long-distance VIPs to join in the fun.
Before you arrive, I will preselect 4-5 dresses as a starting point. You’ll have the chance to select gowns to try as well. I’ll ask questions to help you figure out how you feel in each as we zero in on what you care about and how to create the look that will make you feel like your most beautiful self on your wedding day.
Tip: Still nervous about trying on dresses before working with me? Visit a bridal department store before coming to Your Dream Bridal, just to get a sense of different shapes and get out your jitters.
When you find the dress, it’s easy – as silly as it may sound, you’ll just know. Trust yourself! We can also customize your gown to make sure it’s exactly what you are dreaming of—for example, making a neckline more modest or mixing the bodice of one style gown with the skirt of another style gown. If you need a veil or accessories, I can help with that too.
Next, it’s time for measurements, paperwork, and a celebratory photo. I follow up with pictures of you in your dress and supply fabric swatches whenever possible. If you need recommendations for other wedding vendors, I’ve got you covered. When the gown arrives at the shop, you come in to pop it on quickly, confirm that everything is as it should be, and take it home!
The best part of all— you celebrate your wedding day feeling confident, comfortable, and beautiful in a one-of-a-kind gown that was made for you.
