Why Should You Make an Appointment to Try On Wedding Gowns?

If we only had one thing to tell our Brides, when it comes to trying on dresses, it would be to make an Appointment.

Why, you ask?

Well, one of our favorite Bloggers, The Brides' Maid, couldn't have said it better.  Click >here< to read her post on why it is so important to plan and make an appointment to try on Wedding Gowns.  She even tells you what days are the best to go shopping and what days to avoid like the plague.

And when you're ready, call The Perfect Dress at 801-568-3737 to make your appointment.

Happy Shopping!

Perfect Dress Bride: Elise Hunter

We were so excited when we heard from our Bride Elise and you will see why.  Her Photographer was the amazing Lindsey Orton.

Her Wedding was gorgeous!!

Elise met Scott in their Singles Ward at BYU.  Scott had been wanting to ask Elise out, but with School and Finals, he just couldn't find the right time.

When his last final was over, he didn't waste any time.  Scott walked out of the Testing Center and right over to Elise's place, where he found her packing to go home for the Holidays.  He asked her if she would be able to come by his place to watch a movie and, as Elise says, "the rest is History".

Scott Proposed to Elise when he was working over the summer in Virginia.  Elise had gone out to visit him and one night he took her down to the Jefferson Memorial (one of their favorite places) and popped the question on the front steps.  Dreamy!

They were Married in the Salt Lake Temple on November 16, 2012 and had their Reception at The Joseph Smith Memorial Building in the Empire Room.



"I knew that I wanted a dress that would be simple and classic. I wanted something that I could look back on in 30 years and still love. I didn’t want anything too trendy.  I also knew that I wanted a ¾ length sleeve. When I tried on my dress I lit up. I knew it was the right one when I didn’t want to take it off. The ladies at The Perfect Dress helped give me ideas on how to alter the dress once I picked it out so that I could get exactly what I wanted."

"My seamstress was phenomenal! I gave her one of the sketches I had done and she stayed true to it.  It didn’t even look like the same dress after she had done her magic. It was unique and all mine and I loved it!"

Elise's advice to Brides who are picking out their Wedding Gowns?

"Have an open mind, have fun and pick something that YOU love!"

We couldn't agree more Elise!  Congratulations on your special day and thank you for letting us at The Perfect Dress be a part of it.  You were so much fun to work with!

Are you getting married in The Temple?

If you are, there can be some confusion involved.

Should I wear my dress in The Temple?  What are the requirements for my gown?  Should I just buy a beaded luxurious dress and wear my Temple Dress in The Temple?  If I buy a strapless dress and add sleeves, will it look good?

Have no fear, you beautiful Brides.

The Perfect Dress has been featured on one of our favorite Blogs today 

and the post will answer all of your Temple Wedding questions.

The video in the beginning is from our sister store The Brides' Shop and it will tell you what you need to look for in a Wedding Dress if you want to wear your gown in The Temple.

Channeling a Little Downton Abbey

Are you as obsessed with Downton Abbey as we are?

The Characters, the Storyline and the Fashion.

Did we say the Fashion?

We said the Fashion, right?

We knew that we weren't the only ones that swooned over the Crawley Sister's wardrobe.

Because of this, we were on a mission when we went to Market back in September.

We were going to find these beautiful styles and guess what, we did even better!!

We found a Designer that channels these beautiful early 1900 designs, but creates them into gowns that can be worn today in 2013.

Let us introduce you to the Designer Mignon.  You will see Mignon at Sak's, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus and now at The Perfect Dress.  Here are just a few styles that you will see at The Perfect Dress:

See what we are talking about?

We are in love with these gowns and are so excited to bring them to Utah.  Their luxurious fabrics and incredible beading make these the perfect dresses to make a statement.  Gowns like these don't stay on our racks for long, so make sure to see us soon.
