If you’re looking for wedding dresses in Utah, Pritchétt Bridal has curated a collection of designer dresses from runways all over the world.
Custom One-of-A-Kind Gowns
Tiffany Prichett is the creative director for Prichétt Bridal. She has a really close relationship with all of her designers. She gets to sit down with them and redesign the dresses to make them look like they've always been modest in a very fashionable way. Our custom designs are exclusive to Pritchétt Bridal. This makes them one of a kind.
How to Prepare for Your Appointment
You have an appointment at Pritchétt! Step one: done. Step two: get ready!
Make sure that you have plenty of time to get to our store so you’re on time for your appointment. We schedule 90 minutes for each appointment, which may seem like plenty, but it goes by quickly. If you’re late for your appointment, it cuts into your time! And we know you want as much time as possible to try on our amazing gowns.
We advise our brides to come to their appointment with a nude, supportive bra, so when you’re trying on dresses it won’t conflict with the look of the gown on your body. We will provide you with a slip to wear under the dresses. If you want to bring your own shapewear, feel free!
It’s also fun to play dress up a little. Come with your hair and makeup done in a way that’s similar to what you want it to be on your wedding day. When you do, you’ll be able to get the full picture of what you will look like with everything all together, with the dress, veil, and countless accessories we have for you to try on! And it ensures that you’ll be Insta-ready when you take pictures in front of our cute celebration wall when you say yes to the dress.
Who Should I Bring?
In each of our newly renovated bridal suites, we have seating for up to four people per appointment in addition to the bride. That may not seem like much, but it’s the perfect number of people there to support you without it being too overwhelming. More often than not, too many opinions causes more stress for a bride. If you want to bring less than four people, feel free! If it’s just you and your mom, or if you even want to come by yourself, we have the perfect hype team right here ready to help you out.
We advise bringing the people that you want to share your special moments with the most. While it’s normal to just go dress shopping without the intention of buying right away, you really never know when you’re going to find your dream dress and fall in love with it, and you want to make sure that all the right people are there to share that moment with you. Not to mention our famous confetti celebration. We’ll celebrate big with you and your whole party when you say yes to the dress! So bring whoever you want to share this once-in-a-lifetime experience with.
Our Amazing Consultants
The bridal consultants here at Pritchétt are well-trained to help you find your dream dress and make sure that this is the experience of a lifetime. You only shop for a wedding dress once in your life, and we want you to remember it forever. We know that this is something you’ve been waiting for your whole life, and we want to make it special. Our friendly consultants will greet you when you come in, seat you and your party in a suite, and you will be with the same consultant for the duration of your entire appointment. She will be giving her undivided attention and expertise to you and your needs as a bride. The Pritchétt consultants go through a rigorous training process and ongoing education on what it takes to be the best bridal consultants in Utah. They are extremely familiar with every single dress, designer, alteration, and accessory we have in our store. They know a lot about wedding dresses. And they do it for you! Everything they learn and work so hard for is all to ensure that our Pritchétt brides receive the best care and connection for this special occasion.
At the beginning of your appointment, your consultant will interview you about your vision for your wedding and what you’re looking for in a dress. It’s helpful to have pictures of things you like to show your consultant, but if you have no idea what you want, don’t stress. That’s what the consultants are for. Based on what you’re looking for, and what you’re liking as the appointment goes on, she will help you pull dresses that she thinks you might like. Don’t be afraid to ask if we have something! Your consultant is more familiar with what we have in our collection and she will be able to look for it. If we don’t have it, we can definitely make it! Check out our alterations page or ask your consultant about what kinds of alterations can be done to your dress. Feel free to check our Instagram @pritchettbridal for an idea of some of the dresses we have. Keep in mind that we are getting new dresses every single week!
After the interview and a quick tour around the store, it’s time to pull dresses! You and your party get to look through our collection yourselves along with the consultants to grab anything out of our collection that catches your eye. Don’t be afraid to try a dress or two out of your comfort zone, it will always look different on you than it does on the hanger. You never know what you could fall in love with once you try it on. Bridal gown sizing tends to run about two sizes smaller than regular sizing, so don’t be alarmed when you’re fitting into gowns that are a different size than you’re used to. It also entirely depends on the designer of the dress, and since we carry 17 different designers, you could fit into a range of sizes.
Trying On Your Dresses
After you’ve picked a few dresses to start with, your consultant will show you to your own private dressing room where you’ll be given a slip to change into before trying on our gowns. We do this first and foremost to ensure your comfort, as well as to keep the dresses nice and in good condition. After you’ve changed, your consultant will help you put on and zip up each dress, as she will have special training on how to help brides in and out of wedding gowns. Sometimes, putting on a dress is a two- or three-person job! We’re all here to help you and to make your appointment as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
As you’re trying dresses on, don’t be afraid to tell your consultant exactly what you like or don’t like. That’s how she will be able to best help you, and pull more dresses based on your preferences.
Once you’ve narrowed it down to a few favorites, you’ll repeat those dresses and throw on some accessories. We have so many gorgeous veils to try on and plenty of stunning jewelry for you to style with your favorite gowns. This is the most fun part of your whole appointment, and when most brides say yes to the dress!
When you find the one, we’ll celebrate with you, with confetti and everything! We have the cutest jackets that say, “She Said Yes,” and a gorgeous new photo backdrop wall for Insta-worthy pictures to commemorate this special moment. And every single Prtichétt bride gets a gift, from us to you. It includes a bride robe, a Pritchétt Bride t-shirt, a Mrs. necklace, a Utah Valley Bride magazine, and exclusive vendor discounts and deals that are only available to our brides.
We can’t wait to see you at your appointment! We are going to have a blast, and we hope that shopping at Pritchétt is a memorable, once-in-a-lifetime experience for you. If you have any questions before you come in, don’t hesitate to call us or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Get ready to say yes to your dream dress!
