This is where your Bridal Journey begins

Whoop whoop! Start your wedding journey now! Here are some tips to help you start your first appointment.


At this time, you may feel a variety of emotions. You might feel anxious, excited, scared, joyful, and many other emotions.

A good bridal shop will be there to share the emotions. Your happiness is the most important goal.

The ultimate goal is to make you happy when you find “The Dress”.

Tip #1: Choose your tribe

  • Our honest opinion is that it’s crucial to choose your bridal shopping tribe carefully.
  • These are the people who can help you make big decisions.
  • We have 13 years of combined experience in the wedding industry and can offer the following advice:
  • Two members of your family are better than one. These people know you best and can tell you the truth.

At least one friend, usually the maid of honor, should be with you. Your friend will support you and do extensive research to help you find what you need.

Tip #2: Shop local and use local images

Many of our brides are local to our boutique. We are located only a few minutes away. We have had brides who have traveled over 100 miles to get the dresses they want.

Although we welcome everyone, our bridal boutique is open to all. However, we believe that if you are able to find your perfect dress and accessories locally it’s an added bonus. Benefits of a local bridal shop:

  • It’s much easier to have a large tribe.
  • You can get help and advice right at your door.
  • You don’t have to make big travel arrangements to try on your dress for alterations.
  • It is easy to collect your dress.

Tip #3 Keep a budget in your mind

It’s a smart idea to establish a budget before you begin your journey of buying bridal gowns. This will allow you to estimate the total cost of your wedding day.

Once you have a budget, you can allocate money to each aspect of your day, such as your wedding dress, your bridesmaids’ dresses, flowers, and photography.

It is important to tell your wedding consultant how much you can afford.

Keep head strong

Only the way we do things can speak for me. If your maximum budget was PS1,200, you would be able to buy a wedding dress. This means that we will only show you dresses above this amount.

If you haven’t found the perfect dress for you in the price range of PS1,200 to PS1,500, we may ask you if you would like to try on a few other dresses that are slightly more expensive (e.g. PS1,400 to PS1,500).

We wouldn’t pull out the most expensive dress from the rail and hang it up in front of you, knowing that it would blow your budget.

Tip #4 If you don’t like the vibe of it, get out!

You’ve probably already done a few Google searches to find local bridal shops in the area.

Now it’s time to schedule appointments at various stores. It’s now time to try on dresses. First impressions are everything. This Is Me Bridal is a great example of this.

If you don’t feel the happy vibes at your wedding on your arrival, then it is time to get out. It is not worth wasting your time or the time of your bridal consultants.

Our wedding boutique is all about creating the wedding day buzz. You are not just another bride, you become a part of the This Is Me Bridal Family!

We want to create an atmosphere that makes you feel instantly at home. We want to build trust. You are putting your trust in us to deliver on the most important element of your wedding day.

Tip #5 Trust your bridal consultant

It’s probably your first visit to a bridal shop.

Your eyes will be drawn to everything once you step into the store. There will be so many options for you to choose from, which can make it overwhelming.

This is the right time to talk to your bridal store consultant. We believe that every body is beautiful, no matter what size or shape.

Bridal Knowledge & Expertise

An excellent bridal consultant will immediately know what style of gown will look best on you, as soon as they meet with you.

It is easy to choose fifteen to twenty dresses you love and want to wear. Here is where the expertise of bridal consultants comes in.

Your bridal consultant will help you narrow down your choices and recommend which dresses to try first.
