Q: How early should I book my appointments? Should I schedule a few days ahead or do most shops require a week notice to be given to schedule an appointment? 

Easy - as early as possible, but no more than two months out. The earlier you can let our bridal shops know when you would like to come in, the better. However, we don't suggest booking for a date more than two months out since plans can change. In order to land that coveted 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. appointment time on a Saturday, you should at least plan on booking two weeks out no matter what time of the year you are shopping. If you are planning on shopping during our busiest seasons (at the beginning of each new year), three weeks to a month can ensure that you get the exact time slot you desire! Each shop is different, so check with all of the bridal shops you plan on going to in order to ensure that you are scheduling early enough to get your optimal time slot!
