Public Service Announcement

Hello all of you newly engaged, soon to be Brides!

We wanted to congratulate you!

We also wanted to remind you that The Perfect Dress is by appointment only. 

 So before you round up your three helpers (we strongly suggest that you bring no more than 3 people to your appointment) give us a call at (801)568-3737 and see what times we have available.

Trust us when we say that it's a real drag for you when you step into our beautiful store and all of our rooms and Consultants are taken.

Wedding gown shopping isn't like shopping for a pair of jeans.

It takes planning.

We can't wait to help you find your perfect dress!

Found Your Dream Dress, But It Doesn't Fit Your Budget?

Our Brides here at The Perfect Dress are smart and savvy.

Not to mention gorgeous.

Since we've been open, we have seen a growing trend of Brides asking for gift certificates to our store for Christmas.

Kind of strange or really smart?

We say smart!

Have you fallen in love with a gown that is just out of your budget?

Lucky you!

Christmas is coming up and instead of asking for more clothes, new perfume or that pair of boots, Brides are asking for help to get their dream wedding dress!

Something that will last forever and always be remembered.

We just wanted to let you Brides know that we offer Gift Certificates here at The Perfect Dress.

Call us at (801)568-3737 and we will have one made and ready for you to pick up!

Merry Christmas!

Our Bride Suzette

Today we are showing you Suzette.

Check out that smile!
Suzette's story about finding her perfect dress might sound familiar.

"My mother-in-law, among many others, suggested I make an appointment at The Perfect Dress. I did that but also went to a few other places where I saw nothing that I liked."

"When I got to The Perfect Dress, Robyn was shining and smiling and made a long and difficult process exciting and doable. That was so important for me because I was feeling pretty dreary about the whole thing."

"Ideas, hopes and dreams started flowing together as Robyn helped me make huge decisions and narrow my choices down to two dresses. Both were sleeveless and I needed a modest sleeve. And one other thing that my heart desired: lace."

"I kept the original sweetheart neckline but raised the lace to the boatneck."

"To add the last perfecting touch, the veil was the ideal length to show off the buttons that went from the base of my neck to the end of my train. To add to it's beauty, the veil happened to be lined with tiny beads that matched my sash perfectly!
The earrings and bracelet I wore also came from The Perfect Dress."

  "The seamstress that made all my alterations did a fabulous job and I felt like my dress fit me like a glove. Most importantly, I actually got to feel like a princess. Never thought that would happen, let alone that I would WANT to feel that way."

"All in all, dress shopping started out daunting but ended up being the easiest thing in my wedding plans. Well, that and saying 'yes' to the man of my dreams."

Suzette, you are the cutest.

Thanks for trusting us with one of your most important decisions.

Best wishes!

Our Bride Danielle

Danielle is one of those Brides who has a classic style.

See what we're saying?


Danielle fell in love with a timeless strapless gown, but she wanted sleeves.

With our seamstresses, Danielle designed sleeves that were flawless.

Our favorite part of her Bridal look?

Her necklace.

She took a chance and added a pop of color.

It was a perfect statement piece and a good example that you can keep that classic J. Crew style and still be a little daring.

And these beautiful photos of Danielle and Jake?

They were captured by Jordan Carli Photography.

The moral of this story is, if you're looking for a look that even your grandchildren will want to emulate, take a page out of Danielle's book. 

Effortless and beautiful.

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Especially if you are dating that special someone.

Awwwww.  Look at this cute hipster couple riding around, being all cool.
This could be the month that it happens.

Awwww.  Look at this cute preppy couple, being all cute and engaged.

There are more proposals in the month of December than any other month.

So here is an early Congratulations to all of you future Brides and a little word of advice.

Remember that for some designers, it can take up to six months to ship their gowns.

Six months!

Yes Mr. Worhal, you're very right.

The problem with waiting is that if you wait too long to purchase your wedding gown, you won't be able to get the dress of your dreams.

So here is what most savvy Brides that have short engagements do.

They go wedding dress shopping before they get engaged, find their gown and either purchase it or figure out the latest they can order it.

Looks like a lively bunch!
You don't have to tell your future Fiancé.

Actually, we would advise not telling him.

Guys don't get it.

Plus, you get to avoid the after Christmas rush.

The week after Christmas is crazy and it doesn't die down until July!

And since we are talking about engagements,

this might be the cutest way to capture the moment.

Just sayin'.
