A Guide to Bridal Gown Shopping: What Every Bride-to-Be Should Know

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! As a custom wedding gown designer, we at Malton Couture believe every bride-to-be deserves to feel like a princess on her big day. However, we understand that bridal gown shopping can be overwhelming for some brides, especially those who have never done it before. That’s why we want to give you a guide to bridal gown shopping, so you know what to look forward to and what to bring with you to your appointment.

Make an Appointment With a Designer

One of the benefits of making an appointment with our designer at Malton Couture is that you get to work with an internationally acclaimed designer who can help you create the dress of your dreams. During your appointment, you can discuss your likes and dislikes, and the designer can recommend styles for you to try on.

Try On Many Dresses

When it comes to bridal gown shopping, it’s important to keep an open mind. You may think you want a certain style or fabric, but then try on something completely different and fall in love with it. That’s why it’s important to try on many different dresses before making a final decision. At Malton Couture, we have a wide variety of styles and fabrics to choose from.

Bring Along Your Accessories

If you’ve already decided on any accessories, like a veil or jewelry, it’s a good idea to bring them with you to your appointment. This will help you visualize how everything will look together and make sure everything ties in with your dress.

Invite Family and Friends

Bridal gown shopping can be a fun and memorable experience, especially when you invite family and friends to join you. Traditionally, the mother of the bride, sisters, and close friends are invited, but you can also invite your future mother-in-law if you have a close relationship.


We hope this guide to bridal gown shopping has been helpful to you as you prepare for your big day. Remember to keep an open mind, try on many different dresses, and bring along any accessories you’ve already decided on. And above all, have fun! Bridal gown shopping is a special time that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. At Malton Couture, we’re here to help you every step of the way.
