If we’ve got a favourite area of Flossy & Willow, it’s the fitting room. This is where, when you come for your appointment, that all the good stuff happens. You try on wedding dresses, you see yourself transformed into a bride and we all get ridiculously excited. The fitting room is also where secrets are shared and today, we’re going to let you in on a few of them.
As you might expect, we hear a lot from brides during their wedding dress appointment. The fitting room is a bit like a bridal confessional at times! You should never ever feel embarrassed or inhibited and you absolutely should feel comfortable enough to tell your stylist anything. We’re here to make you look AND feel fabulous.
So, here are some confessions from the fitting rooms at Flossy & Willow and we hope that they encourage you to ‘fess up when you’re with us too…
I don’t like this bit of me
Firstly, you’re not alone. We’ve all got a body hang-up or two so don’t worry about it. We’re not judging you, we’re not comparing you to other brides but do tell us what bits bother you. Once we know what you’re not so keen on, we can suggest gowns that are going to flatter in ways you didn’t think possible.
I’m so sorry I’m wearing this
Trust us when we tell you that we’re not rating you based on your underwear. Wear whatever you like when you come for your appointment. Be comfortable, be confident and don’t worry about us. As you can imagine, we see an awful lot of women in their underwear so please don’t feel embarrassed or self-conscious about anything.
I’m not the right size
Let’s get this straight, there’s no ‘right size’. You’re you and we want you to love that as much as your partner clearly does. Yes, it’s true that we only carry samples in certain sizes but this won’t make your wedding dress appointment any less brilliant. You don’t need to worry about your size, whatever it may be.
I don’t really like this dress
Good for you! If you don’t like it, tell us. Please don’t feel worried or nervous about telling us what you don’t like. We’re not going to take it personally and we want you to tell us exactly what you think of the dresses you try on. Explain what’s not right. Tell us what design details you’re not keen on. Be brutally honest with us so we can suggest alternatives. You don’t need to please us but we want nothing more than to please you.
OMG I LOVE THIS DRESS!
Yes. This is what we want. You, in a wedding gown, happy. Job. Done.
