The bride’s wish list


When you walk into a bridal boutique, the sales associates will offer to take your coat and give you a tour of the store. It might seem like overkill at first, but when they ask if they can help you find anything in particular, they’re really just trying to make sure that they show you everything on your “bridal wish list”.

What are the most common wishes brides make?

1) A beautiful wedding dress.

Every bride fantasizes about her wedding dress. But what every bride doesn’t want is a dress that doesn’t fit well. A beautiful bridal gown should fit just right and be something the bride feels stunning in.

2) Flawless skin

A bride will do just about anything to look her best on her wedding day. Brides will visit the best estheticians, go on a diet and make sure that they’re getting plenty of sleep in the weeks leading up to the wedding day, all in the quest for flawless skin for your big day.

3) A perfect hairstyle

While some brides might want to wear their hair down, many actually want a hairstyle that they can run their hands through while making their way up the aisle. Carefully selected hair accessories, like combs, headbands, and pins meant to hold your veil in place, are some of the most desired items in a bridal boutique.

4) A beautiful bridesmaids dress

The wedding party is an important part of the processional. This is why it’s important to find a style that both you and your bridesmaids will feel good in. They will dress up without a care in the world, and that makes their day even more special.

5) The perfect bouquet of flowers

A bouquet that is just right will make your day special. Whether you want a large bouquet with flowers that are your favorite, or something more simple and elegant, a bridal bouquet will do more than complement your attire. It also lets all the guests know that you’re the bride.

6) The perfect pair of shoes

The right pair of shoes is another important feature to have on your wedding day. They need to be stylish before anything else.

7) A spacious place to get ready

The getting ready location should be a place where the bride can enjoy her own company. She needs to reflect on and appreciate this once-in-a-lifetime experience without feeling rushed or stressed out.

8) A professional photographer

A professional photographer will capture every moment of your big day, including the little details that you might otherwise overlook. Photographers know how to get everyone into the right position and manage the light so that you’re looking your best in all your wedding photos. Having a friend take pictures at your wedding is not recommended, especially if they don’t have any experience with photography.

9) A unique and special table setting

If the wedding party is celebrating with a sit-down dinner, some couples prefer to go out of their way to have a unique table setting. Many bridal boutiques will set up all of the plates, bowls, and glasses to mimic a piece of art. It’s not unusual for the bride to want all of her dishes to match. Having everything match serves a dual purpose in that if everything matches, it gives unity and harmony throughout the entire processional and reception.

The sales associates in the bridal boutique can help you find everything that you need to make your wedding day special. However, before they can help you find what exactly you’re looking for, they really just want to get a good look at your “bridal wish list”.
