5 Simple Reasons To Hire a Dress Stylist for Your Wedding

When it comes to finding the perfect wedding dress, there’s probably nothing a bride won’t do. In a perfect world, the right dress in the right size is waiting for you in the first store you enter. You don’t need to dig around, flip through endless magazines, or heckle with the store owner. But in reality, finding your wedding dress can take some time. Here are five simple reasons to hire a stylist to find the gown that you were born to wear:

#1: Stylists Do the Work For You

By profession, a stylist is a hunter. They are experts at finding unique and beautiful pieces in places you’d never even think to look. Their main mission is to fit you into a wedding dress that suits your personality, taste, shape, and budget. And the best part is, you don’t really have to lift a finger. And since they have intimate relationships with designers, boutiques, and store managers all over the city, you know that they’ll leave no worthy stone unturned.

#2: They Have Impeccable Style

This goes without saying. Some stylists have degrees in fashion marketing or fashion design. Others have decades of experience working in the wedding or fashion industry. But no matter where they come from, any stylist worth his or her salt has a thorough understanding of wedding dress fashion, style, and what looks good on a woman’s body. Plus, you can say goodbye to those ugly and unflattering bridesmaid dresses. A stylist can source gowns for the entire bridal party that effortlessly complement your wedding dress.

#3: They’re on Top of All the Latest Trends

Stylists are constantly on the lookout for what’s coming up in the world of bridal fashion. They are likely aware of trends that haven’t caught on in North America. Plus, stylists are also responsible for starting trends. We all know that wearing the latest dress to come off the runway isn’t always what a bride is looking for. But if you get tears in your eyes just thinking about making waves in the industry, a stylist will be there to help you.

#4: They Aren’t Biased

Here’s the thing: Walk into any bridal store, whether it’s a fashion house or a bridal boutique, and you’re probably guaranteed to receive the best service possible from the on-staff stylist. That’s great, right? The only problem there is that many of these employees work on commission, so one of their main priorities is selling you a dress from their own collection...obviously. We don’t mean to sound pessimistic, it’s just the nature of the industry. The beauty of working with wedding stylists is that they aren’t attached to a particular label or shop, so you’re guaranteed to receive unbiased advice from someone who knows every worthy shop and designer in Toronto like the back of their hand.

#5: They Give You What You Want

You know when you’ve been trying on clothes or shoes for what feels like hours and no matter what you wear, you just can’t seem to find the right fit, style, or colour? With a stylist, you can pretty much say goodbye to changing room fatigue. Stylists often pride themselves on knowing what you want before you even know it yourself. They aren’t mind-readers, but with the little information you can give them, they’ll be able to turn your dreams into reality.
