Buying a wedding dress can be a daunting and sometimes overwhelming process. Whether it be finding the ideal dress shop in your local area or even deciding who to take with you, shopping for wedding dresses can often be a bride’s most nerve-racking experience.
Here at Harper Smith Bridal, we aim to ease a bride’s worries and help guide her towards her dream gown. As soon as you make an appointment request with us, you are contacted via phone to book in. This allows us speak to the client directly, answering any questions that they may have about the appointment and give them a sense of what to expect.
When you arrive at your appointment, you are welcomed by a senior and junior consultant, both of whom are on hand t make you feel completely welcome. Once we have taken your coats and offered you and your bridal party a welcome drink, you are invited to relax on our plush sofas whilst
settling in. Every bride that has an appointment with us is given exclusive use of the boutique, with no limit on how many guests you bring with you. Any size of bridal party is welcome!
Choosing your Dream Dress
Once everybody is comfortable, the senior consultant takes time to get to know the bride and her wants and thoughts about her dream bridal gown. At Harper Smith Bridal, we like to talk to our brides and guide them with a more conversational and relaxed approach, whilst listening to what they and their bridal party have to say.
The next step is for the you to choose a selection of wedding gowns from our collection that you would like to try. We don’t have any restrictions on how many gowns brides can select to try on and we also encourage members of the bridal party to choose dresses also. Sometimes the perfect dress is chosen by the mother of the bride or maid of honour!
Our senior consultant is on hand to advise and guide each bride whilst they are trying on dresses. With 8 years of bridal industry experience, our senior consultant is able to help brides find the right shape, style and design of dress with an honest and friendly approach. We can select other gowns for you to try or use our many accessories to give each bride a complete bridal look for their wedding day.
No HIgh Pressure Sales
We hope that you find your dream wedding gown from our collection but also know that brides need space to think about such an important decision for their big day. We encourage brides to visit other bridal boutiques to shop around, but also suggest coming back to visit us for a second appointment. At Harper Smith Bridal, we like to offer a no pressure sales environment, making sure that brides feel comfortable and able to choose their dream gown in their own time.
We look forward to welcoming all brides to be to Harper Smith Bridal!
