Bridal Consultation at Nordstrom Brea's Wedding Suite
Aside from visiting a local Vietnamese designer to try on traditional gowns as well as his line of wedding gowns a couple weekends ago, my mom and I stopped into Nordstrom Brea's Wedding Suite to get the full bridal experience. My mom started sending me links to wedding dresses off of Nordstrom.com a few weeks back, then I looked into it more and found out that select Nordstrom locations have wedding suites. After a quick search, we found that the Brea location was closest to us; initially I tried to make an appointment on their online booking portal, but after what seemed like a platform glitch I shot Nordstrom an email and was redirected to their wedding suite coordinator Tiffany who got me booked in and connected with my own stylist Tina Stephens.
Tina sent me questions beforehand to fill out so she could pull dresses and get an idea of the style bride/wedding I'm going for. This made our appointment efficient but also gave Tina a better idea of how to best accommodate us during our time there. When I first arrived, Tina greeted us while she was finishing up some business then guided us to the dressing room. She had a couple dresses hanging in the room already that I had sent her via email, then a couple more dresses that she thought would be a great fit. We had a wonderful time trying on each dress and she gave her honest opinion for each one. If I had a question about accessorizing she pulled various veils or belts to try; and when it came to customizing colors of dresses, she was quick to find out if it was possible, and in what colors.
Although there were a couple really beautiful dresses in my price point, I was not 100% about one, but it was very helpful for me to try on and style each dress, as well as have Tina's expertise for guidance. A stunning Lazaro gown caught my eye, and she was more than happy to pull it to let me try it on (even though it was 4x my budget). She's super sweet and really cares - it was nice that I didn't feel an overwhelming pressure to have to purchase a dress, make a decision, or hurry up the appointment. It's all about the process, and Tina made it that much more fun and enjoyable. To make an appointment for Nordstrom Brea's wedding suite, see below:
