BE ACCOMPANIED BY WHOM?
Your wedding dress is definitely THE dress of your life. You will surely want to share your choices and your ideas of dress designs with your loved ones. Often these same people will be involved in the preparation of your wedding. It is therefore important to ask yourself how important their opinion is to you, how well they know you, and whether you are prepared to receive positive or negative comments from them about your choices. Are you comfortable trying on dresses in front of these people? The advice of one or two people you trust will be enough to give you a heads-up and decide on your choice. By experience, at Maison Ariane Carle, we suggest a maximum of 3 people to accompany the bride. This helps the bride’s concentration and above all avoids too many comments that only cast doubt on her choices.

LET YOUR HEART CHOOSE…
After a wedding dress fitting, some of you will feel a little confused. Your heart may have been set on more than just a dress and it’s normal not to be able to decide right away. Take a moment to rest and take a step back. Invite your companions for coffee and listen to their comments. After all, you chose them out of trust to support you and help you make your choices. For other brides-to-be, it will be love at first sight, they will quickly know: it’s MY dress. The emotion is always very palpable when the bride finds HIS dress. Tears are not uncommon, even guests and advisers are often caught up in the game of feelings. No matter how long it takes to find your wedding dress, you must keep in mind that YOU the bride will be wearing THE dress! So you have to let your heart choose….
WHY HAVE A SECOND WEDDING DRESS?
After you’ve chosen the dress of your dreams. Once your order is placed and you have an idea of the delivery date, it can take up to 16 weeks. You’ll have plenty of time to think about other aspects of that beautiful day ahead. It is always a good idea to plan a second dress for your wedding. Not only is it very comfortable for the reception and the evening, but it can also be very useful in case you accidentally damage your dress. This second dress can allow you to reveal another aspect of your personality, another look or simply be the more sober version of your official dress. Choose the light, comfortable and easy to wear one. Think of the times when you want to have fun on the dance floor with your guests. You’ll probably want to have freedom of movement, especially if your wedding dress is heavy and bulky. Because your wedding night is also the time to let go of the pressure of the last few days and have fun. At Maison Ariane Carle, you will find several models that will suit your late night party.
In closing, don’t hesitate to surround yourself with people you trust, take the time to analyze your options and let your instincts guide you. If you don’t have a dress that suits you, a few fashion houses offer a custom design and tailoring service. At Maison Ariane Carle, the creative team will be at your service to fulfill your requests, whether it is to create a unique wedding dress model especially for you or to customize an existing model.
