Are you having trouble finding the perfect dress for your big day? Go to Bliss Bridal Salon in Fort Worth to see their wide range of beautiful gowns! JT and Wendy Holsomback have owned and operated this upscale bridal salon for over 8 years and are very avid about finding brides their dream dress. They are both wonderful people who are always smiling, cracking jokes and easy to work with. Not only do they have bridal gowns, they also have accessories and bridesmaids dresses so you can make it a one-shop stop! Typically, the dresses range from $1,000 to $4,000 to fit any budget.
Wendy recommends that a bride order her dress 6 months before the wedding day, or bridal portraits, to make sure it comes in on time. She also said alterations should be done 6-8 weeks prior to the first time you will need to wear it. The final fitting should be 2 weeks before the wedding so that you are worry free and not rushing to make sure the dress fits perfectly. What about brides on a time crunch? No problem, Bliss Bridal has options for quick delivery gowns, rush from some designers and their “Off the Rack” collection! Although they don’t do alterations in store, they have several specialists near by where they refer their brides.
When you go into this salon, a consultant will discuss your price point and preferred styles. From there, they will offer guidance to help ease the process, although, by no means, do you have to stick to their suggestions. This time is limited to just the bride and her consultant so that they can get to know each other. Wendy says “Her friends and family have known her forever. We only have 5 minutes to catch up!” Typically, a bride will start with 10-12 dress options so that she doesn’t feel overwhelmed or rushed, but feels as if still has options. Their sample dresses range from size 8-14 and their Reserve Collection come in sizes 16-28. Wendy likes to make sure brides know that these sizes can run 1 to 2 sizes smaller than regular clothes so brides shouldn’t be concerned if they aren’t the size they expected! Bliss Bridal carries many designers. A few of the designers include: Sassi Holford, Pronovias, Mori Lee, and Stella York. Every gown in the store is also featured online where you can look through what they have before going into the salon and you can even make a wish list! You can also check out their Pinterest boards for all their gowns in the salon, and their gowns for bridesmaids. Not only can you create a wish list or your own board for friends and family to see, you don’t have to bring anything to the salon to try the gowns on! They have pedestals to compensate for heels and their gowns are well constructed so they don’t suggest long line bras!
