Looking to make the most out of your wedding dress shopping experience at Kleinfeld? Look no further! We rounded up the 5 best insider secrets so you can slay wedding dress shopping, below.
Shop during the week for an intimate experience.
Most brides travel to Kleinfeld on the weekends for their appointment, meaning we have more appointments to accommodate every bride. With that, we have fewer appointments during the week, making the salon a bit quieter and more intimate. Plus, your chance of getting your own private pedestal and mirror is much higher, and you and your three guests will have more room to spread out should you want to take a spot in our main salon.
Schedule your hair and makeup trail before your appointment.
Brittany Lo, founder of Beautini, says to consider scheduling your hair and makeup trail with your Kleinfeld shopping experience to get the most out of your wedding day look. “Align [your trial] with a dress fitting so you can see the entire look from head to toe, or before a bridal shower because you will be able to see how the makeup wears and will probably get to see lots of photos of how your makeup looks too,” she says. Plus, it’ll be even easier to imagine yourself on your wedding day. Learn more about hair and makeup trials here.
Save your favorite wedding dresses to show your consultant.
When you book an appointment at Kleinfeld, you’ll be asked to favorite styles on our website you love. Browse our newest dresses and add them to your profile—because you and your consultant will review them together! This allows your consultant to learn more about your wedding style and what you want to look like on your wedding day, which gets you one step closer to your dream wedding dress.
Shop during a trunk show.
Here at Kleinfeld, we host trunk shows every weekend (and sometimes during the week), and they are a great time to shop for your dream wedding dress. What’s a trunk show? Well, trunk shows are events where a designer brings their entire collection of new dresses to Kleinfeld—including styles not normally available. The designer or brand representative will also be available to discuss styles and customizations, plus, trunk shows come with a special discount—you heard that right!
Try on accessories with your dress to complete your look.
Did you know Kleinfeld has an entire department and a team of experts dedicated solely to bridal accessories?
