So I'm writing a paper about wedding dresses for my Women's Studies class, and my friends and I thought it would be both fun and informative to go to an actual bridal shop and do the whole experience, with me as the fake bride and my friends as the fake bridesmaids. (Also, I know that this is morally suspect and wastes the salesperson's time, etc., and I'm going to definitely keep that in mind and may decide against going through with this, but spare me the lecture please.)
Anyway, TQC, I know nothing about getting a wedding dress and I want to be sure that I pass myself off as a convincing bride-to-be. Any tips for me?
Like, can my bridesmaids jump right in and try on dresses too or does it have to be all about me?
By the time I'm wedding dress shopping how far along in the wedding planning am I supposed to be?
Do I have to have some kind of appointment? (Even if I go to a cheap, off the rack kind of shop, which I almost definitely will?)
etc (Those are just examples, feel free to give me other tips!)
Thanks, dollfaces. Maybe I'll report back to tqc_updates
with hilarious pictures if I go through with it.
