What are some tips to be a successful gown shopper
at the show?
1. You may want to
wear a sports bra and biker shorts, or body suit, so you can try
gowns on anywhere.
2. Leave the make-up at home, and be
considerate handling the gowns.
3. Bring helpers who have
similar taste in style, to hold your belongings, and help you try
4. It may sound ridiculous, but it may be helpful
for you and your helpers to wear matching colors or hats. It'll be
easier to find each other in crowds and it may ad some fun.
Reception for cell phones may not work.
5. Arrive early for
best selection, or later when it's calmer. The first brides and
grads in line will have their ticket stamped to exchange for an
information pack on the way out.
6. Be considerate giving up
your dresses quickly so that other brides have a chance to try
7. Most gown sizes run small, so it's likely you'll need
a size or two bigger than your usual clothes size. A perfect fit
is rare... at these prices, the cost of alterations may be worth
the price of the dress. Rose from Rose's Alterations will be
floating around to answer some questions and give suggestions.
8. Be open minded. The dress of your dreams may not be the
style you had in mind since you were a little girl... you'll never
know until you try it on.
9. Prom grads: we will check our
school sales list to avoid duplication of a gown worn to the same
prom. Please keep in mind we don't have control over sold gowns
from other stores. Although, if it is a discontinued gown, you're
even more likely to have a unique gown.
importantly... Have Fun!! If you find a dress, great. If not, come
visit us for our new 2009 line.
time and interest is very much appreciated.
