Considering all the elements which make a dress fitting an enjoyable experience, Le Jour Bridal Studio in Norfolk is best placed to offer advice on how to get the most out of your appointment. The all-new Le Jour Bridal Studio has been designed with the customer experience in mind and the team are experts in making you feel at home. Here’s how to get the most out of your appointments.

Wear comfy clothes

What better way to relax while perusing the rails than wearing your comfiest clothes? Also remember to wear a strapless bra, as it makes trying the dresses on easier and will give you a better idea of the silhouette of each dress. The Le Jour studio is fully air-conditioned as well to ensure you keep cool and comfortable at all times.

Relax with a refreshment

Le Jour hosts a coffee bar which allows guests to have a cup of tea or coffee during the appointment. Giving customers a break half way through their appointment, a refreshment interval offers bridal parties the chance to discuss what the bride has tried on with their friends and family and a chance to look back at any photos already taken.


Enquire about a sample service

For those brides who have been looking online for their dream dress, they are more than likely to have a Pinterest board full of ideas. Le Jour offers a sample service, whereby they can loan most dresses from the designers they stock that aren’t featured in store. This way, brides can have a pre-selected choice of dresses awaiting their arrival before setting foot in the shop.

Be open minded

By trying on different shapes and styles, a lot of brides-to-be end up with a style they did not expect to have. Try on a dress that you don’t like just to be doubly sure that you can rule it out. Le Jour has an array of sample sizes in store from size 8 to 30.


Bring your nearest and dearest

Come to your appointment with the people you value the opinion of the most, ensuring you get nothing but honest and truthful feedback. It is also wise not to bring too many people, as too many opinions can prove confusing. Get them to take a seat and relax while you wallow in the attention.

Bring pictures

Featuring your dream dress or chosen bridal hairstyle, magazine cuttings or pictures saved to your phone will allow the experts to find dresses that suit your style. By arriving at your appointment with a clear idea of what you’re after, this will help you and the professionals find ‘the dress’ even quicker. 


Bring your bridal shoes

Or shoes of a similar height to those for the big day to gauge how the dress will fall. 

Quality not quantity

Try not to book too many bridal appointments on one day, as this can not only get tiring but you can get wedding dress blindness. It is best to go in to every appointment with a clear mind and fresh set of eyes, ready to start the search again.
