The Dress Checklist

The Dress Checklist

Getting ready

One of the most special days during the wedding planning process is the day you say “Yes!” to the dress. Finding the gown that you will walk down the aisle in is unlike any other purchase you will make. For many, this is a moment they have dreamt about forever. Other brides may be a little more apprehensive about starting and stopping the process.

You should know about before you start that you are going to try on a lot of pretty dresses. So, listen to your gut to find what makes you look and feel your best! Deciding on a dress just as much of an emotional decision as it is a logical decision.

When feeling like you might have found your dress, here are some great questions to ask yourself:

     ◯ Can I picture myself walking down the aisle in this dress?

     ◯ Did I try on every style I was interested in trying on?

     ◯ Am I smiling in this dress?

     ◯ Am I thinking about another dress when I am in this one?

     ◯ Is there anything I wanted that this dress is missing?

     ◯ Can I see my fiance’s jaw-dropping when he/she sees me in this dress?

     ◯ Does this dress fit my venue and wedding theme?

     ◯ Do I feel beautiful in this dress?

     ◯ If I return to this shop at a later date, would I be sad if this dress isn’t here?

Every bride is different. Our most important advice we can give you when shopping for a dress is to make sure you have found a dress that makes you feel beautiful and confident. Your squad and consultant are there to help guide you to your decision. They all will support you in whatever gown you choose. Take a deep breath, and get ready for the first of many unforgettable days leading up to YOUR big day.

We are so excited to announce the new way of bridal shopping! We are now offering a modern approach to bridal gown shopping experience that complies with CDC regulations and gives the opportunity for brides-to-be to have the experience to try gowns in the safety of their own home.

We want to assist you in preparing for your big day while feeling safe without sacrificing the quality of your shopping experience! Virtual appointments are perfect to help brides who have already been shopping and have a good idea what they are looking for and new brides to dip their toes into bridal shopping.

▷ One of our Bridal Stylist will be in contact with you within 48 to confirm your appointment!

How it works:
▷ You will receive an email from your Bridal Stylist to provide details of the virtual consultation.
▷ She will also ask for photos, inspiration, your wedding details, and any specific dresses from our designer’s web pages that you are interested in.
▷ You will be able to shop all our inventory on our Pinterest (@angelasbridalny).
▷ During the consultation, we will show you more of our inventory and will help you select 5 gowns for you to try on at home.

At Home Try-on
▷ There will be a price list for the gowns you selected. Each gown will have two prices. The first if you wanted to reorder the gown in your size and desired color. (Please note that Special order gowns can take up to nine months and this is subject to change during this pandemic.) The second price will be if you wanted to purchase the sample gown off the rack.
▷ We will include fitting & measuring tools (clips, cups, panels, measuring tape) to help you fit yourself in the gowns.
▷ We will send you tutorials on how to clip the dress and how to measure yourself.
▷ At Home Try-ons will be conducted on weekdays only. All gowns must arrive at our shop by 6pm on Friday.

▷ The fee is $250 for the five gowns that will be in your home for a scheduled three days of your choice. This fee covers the cleaning and prepping, shipping and delivery and return and is nonrefundable. However, you will receive $100 of this back if you purchase one of the gowns during your at home try-on.
▷ We also require a credit card on file for any damages to dresses.
▷ Your card will only be charged additional fees if the gowns are not returned or are damaged in some way.
▷ If you decide you want to purchase the sample sent to your home, the card on file will be charged prior to the return of the other dresses.
▷ Other terms and conditions do apply.

We are so excited to start offering this service to our brides. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to reach out!

Feature Dress: Mikaella Style 2016

How gorgeous is this Mikaella Fall 2015 new arrival?! We are so excited to kick off this fall season with our Mikaella Bridal special event starting September 10th. We are just loving our new arrivals!

This style features a dramatic scalloped plunging front neckline; sexy yet classy. And how ‘bout that deep V back! Mikaella Bridal by Paloma Blanca always knows how to show a little skin in the most tasteful way. Their gowns make brides feel beautiful and sexy, yet are wedding appropriate!

We love the signature Mikaella lace which is classic with a modern twist, and lightweight because of the organic materials it’s made with (one of our favorite things about this designer). The natural colored lace paired with the latte lining gives amazing contrast, but it is also available in natural lace with pearl lining for brides that prefer a more subtle lace look.

The fit and flare silhouette highlights the bride’s curves, especially with the beaded band at the natural waist! It provides just enough bling and sparkle for this delicate gown.

Join us for our Mikaella Special Event September 10th-12th and check out the Fall 2015 new arrivals for yourself. You will most certainly fall in love! We can’t wait to help you find the dress of your dreams.
