5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE
 WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING!!

#1
First and foremost Facchianos wedding dresses are special order, they take five months to order and at least 2 months to alter.  You can purchase off the rack, most stores have some dresses available, but most brides like a new dress for their "Something New"  Plan at least 9-12 months out for shopping.  You can never order too early but you can be too late.  You can have dresses rushed for an additional cost but that could cause extra stress.

#2
Call Facchianos for an appointment for trying on wedding dresses, most stores have limited space and will require an appointment, which should take between 1-2 hours

#3
Bring only one or two people to help, especially the person who helps with the final decision (ordering) for when you want to say "Yes to the Dress"  Too many opinions will just confuse you, the bride, this day is all about you, your dress, and how you feel.  No one can choose like you can.  Plus at Facchianos seating is limited, and we want everyone to be comfortable. 

#4
Do know that alterations are always needed for a wedding dress to make it fit, there are only even sizes, if you are in between like most brides there will be additional costs, so plan that into your budget.  Alterations are also by appointment only, and you have to work with a shops alteration schedule.

#5
Do your research, (Pinterest, Brides magazine, friends) plan ahead (only visit two or three shops in one day) and the day will be one filled with fun and excitement….Call Facchianos for an appointment 918-461-8697
