I’m a bridal shop owner and these are the signs that a bride is going to be to difficult to dress | The Sun

CHOOSING a wedding dress can be one of the most daunting tasks brides face ahead of their big day.

Brides spend months trying to pick their perfect attire while sticking to a budget as they attend fitting appointments at different stores.

Bridal store owner Anna Cirignaco has claimed she knows when a bride is going to be difficult to dress.

Women may have tried on several gowns in different bridal stores and may have come across one that they like.

They may like the style of the outfit, its features, or its color.

But, Cirignaco warned that brides shouldn’t request a dress that they may have tried on at a different store.

She told Insider: “If you go in describing a dress you’ve tried on in another store, that’s going to lead to a bad appointment.”

Cirignaco said that brides run the risk of missing out on a design or style that they may not have considered.

She encouraged women to get “out of their comfort zone” when at an appointment.

She said that some brides may have an idea of what they want to look like before trying on the gowns on offer.

Cirignaco told Insider that she asks brides before they try on an outfit: “If you could give me one adjective to describe how you want to look on your wedding day, what would it be?”

She claimed some customers don't ask if the dress will suit them and their personality.

The expert also urged brides to choose carefully who they bring to fittings.

She said a small number of family members will be able to give their honest opinion regarding whether a dress suits or not, but warned: “If you put your mother-in-law and all the bridesmaids in the mix, it’s too many opinions”.

She said: “Your (The bride’s) voice is not heard”.

Data, according to Value Penguin, revealed that the average cost of a wedding in the US is more than $20,000.


But, one TikToker has revealed how she helped planned for her friend’s special day for less than $1,000 using bargains from the retailers Walmart and Dollar Tree.

And, influencer Farrah Gray spent just $500 on her entire wedding ceremony.

Her dress, which was purchased at fast fashion retailer Shein, cost her just $47.

She said: "I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a dress because I have the mindset [that] I'm going to wear this one time for a few hours."

But, guests had to buy their own food and drinks at the reception.

Gray decided to have the wedding ceremony right off the freeway, which didn’t cost her much money as she only paid for the chairs and arch.

But, the newlywed was slammed by several TikTokers online.

One questioned: “Making people buy their own food and drinks??"

Another asked: “How you gonna invite people and not feed them?"
