MTV at Lorna’s????? http://lornasbridal.com/mtv-at-lornas/ http://lornasbridal.com/mtv-at-lornas/#comments Thu, 29 Sep 2011 16:35:16 +0000 http://lornasbridal.com/?p=555 Last week we got a call from a customer that MTV was filming her daughter as part of a reality show about the girls on her school’s Homecoming Court. They asked for permission to film her shopping for her dress here in Lorna’s!

After signing releases (and getting a few butterflies!) they filmed here Saturday morning. Two things stood out in the experience: 1) Reality shows really aren’t totally reality. They do things like, “Okay, let’s go back outside and film your entrance again…” And 2) You actually do kind of get used to the camera and start to act like yourself – which can be a good or bad thing!

After filming for 1 1/2 hours, I asked the producer, “Now with all you’ve filmed here, you’re probably going to only use, what? Maybe 15 seconds?” She agreed that that was actually pretty accurate. They have to condense and make a show from many hours of footage gained from following five girls for two weeks. Let’s hope Lorna’s makes it in the show which should air either December or February!

Attention: Atlanta Plus-Size Brides http://lornasbridal.com/attention-atlanta-plus-size-brides/ http://lornasbridal.com/attention-atlanta-plus-size-brides/#comments Tue, 05 Apr 2011 21:53:23 +0000 http://lornasbridal.com/?p=400 Atlanta Plus-size Bridal

Imagine going shoe shopping for a special pair of shoes. In every shop you visit you hear the same thing: “Oh, you wear a nine? Sorry! We don’t carry anything in stock larger than a size six. We can of course, order for you…” And that would be a best case scenario.

 

What's a girl to do?

Wouldn’t that be frustrating? This is the same issue most larger women face when shopping for the most special dress they will ever purchase. Many brides have even worse experiences with uncaring or even rude consultants who make the plus-size bride feel less than worthy. When bridal samples are only in 8 or 10, a larger bride has no hope of trying on and seeing if one might be a good style for her. For this reason, Lorna's Bridal has made the choice to carry plus-size bridal – and especially Bonny's gorgeous "Unforgettable" line. Unforgettable gowns are made specifically with the larger woman in mind. They take styles and silhouettes that are current and fashionable and make them flattering for a real woman's figure. Looking for a ballgown with pick-ups? Unforgettable has it! How about a princess a-line with sleeves? Yes, they make that also. Halter. Strapless. Grecian. And even sleeves. Bonny's Unforgettable offers them all.

 

   Borrow a Bonny   

One huge benefit of Bonny's plus-size line is the opportunity to "Borrow a Bonny." Say, for instance, you have fallen in love with an Unforgettable dress but no one has it stock and you'd really like to try it on. Through the "BOB" program, if the Bonny gown is in stock at the manufacturer, you can pay a nominal fee to bring the dress in and try it to determine if it is indeed your dream dress. Should you decide to purchase that dress or to order it within 30 day, the nominal fee is applied to the cost of the dress. This is a very handy way to see if a style you thought would be right, actually is. Experience has shown that brides usually like a dress even better in person than a picture so it works out great!

 

  All Brides are beautiful!  

Almost as important as having dresses to actually try on is the shop's attitude. Here at Lorna's Bridal, we realise that every bride is beautiful. We enjoy helping women – whether a size 6 or 26 – find the perfect dress for them. With the proper fit and construction, most any style can be stunning on the plus-size figure. When it comes time for your Atlanta plus-size bridal experience, give us a call at 770-466-7227, to schedule your appointment to find your special dress.

Your Wedding Gown Appointment http://lornasbridal.com/your-wedding-gown-appointment/ http://lornasbridal.com/your-wedding-gown-appointment/#comments Sun, 03 Apr 2011 05:51:11 +0000 http://lornasbridal.com/?p=118

Your Atlanta Bridal Appointment

You’ve picked an Atlanta bridal place to do your shopping for that special dress and need to know what comes next. Here are a few tips that may help to make your Atlanta bridal experience the best it can be.

Tips for Your Atlanta Bridal Appointment

You’ve picked a place to do your shopping for that special dress and need to know what comes next. Here are a few tips that may help to make the experience the best it can be.

 

When Attending Your Atlanta Bridal Appointment, Choose Your Audience Carefully

This is one of the most important things about the whole Atlanta Bridal experience. The people who accompany you to your Atlanta bridal appointment can be key in finding the dress of your dreams. Imagine finding a dress you love but having a hard time committing because of a vocal, negative friend or relative who tells you that you look “fat” in it. Often people project what they want into your experience. You don’t want to choose a dress unwisely, but you also don’t want a “Debbie Downer” who finds fault in everything you love.

On the same note, it is important to only bring a couple of key people with you to your Atlanta bridal appointment. If people’s opinions matter to you, imagine how hard a time you may have getting a large group to agree on the same dress. The more people there are, the more opinions. Many times with a large group, no decision can be made. Though we care what others think, in reality, the person who really counts is YOU.

Don't Invite Children to Your Atlanta Bridal Appointment

Also, do everyone a favor and don’t invite children. Children do not enjoy the Atlanta bridal dress shopping experience and can make it frustrating and exhausting for everyone involved. This is one time when “adults only” – or at least over 12 – is the best policy.

Planning On Inviting Your Fiancé to Your Atlanta Bridal Appointment?

Times are changing and some people want their fiancé to assist in choosing their Atlanta bridal dress. All superstition aside, it can work but be aware of a couple of things: first of all, the dress almost certainly matters more to the bride than it does to the groom. Sometimes a groom can offer an opinion that is contrary to what the bride wants. He probably doesn’t really care that much. Most guys aren’t as emotionally invested in The Dress as the bride – but the bride will have it in her mind that she really wants to please him so she becomes swayed and may forego what she wants. The second thing is that there are so few surprises left in life. It’s still a fun, tender moment for the groom to see his bride for the first time with make-up perfect and hair done in her beautiful dress. Carefully consider these things before agreeing to bring your future spouse, then go for it if you’re sure it’s right for you.

When you have decided whom to bring to your Atlanta bridal appointment, take a moment and think about what to wear. Most Atlanta bridal salons will have a consultant assist you in the dressing room. Wearing a good bra is a good idea as well as any undergarment you plan to also use. (For example, “Spanx.”) It goes without saying that you should come clean and fresh.  Also, if your plan is to have your hair in an up-do on your big day, consider at least bringing a clip or elastic to give yourself a chance to imagine the full effect.

Finally, make sure you know the length of time allotted to your Atlanta bridal appointment and schedule your time accordingly.  Please contact us at (770) 466-7227 or visit our Atlanta Bridal site to see what we have to offer.

Have a wonderful time  at your Atlanta bridal appointment picking out the most important dress of your life!
