Jessica, Bridal Consultant

What is your favorite part about helping brides and working for Charlotte’s Weddings? How long have you worked here?jessica300

I have worked at Charlotte’s since August 2014 and love every minute of it! It is such a great feeling to help brides find “The Dress” and to see their reaction in a wedding gown for the first time. It is amazing to see that defining moment when they realize they have found their dress.

Do you have a favorite moment/story from working at Charlotte’s?

I have several great moments, but I think my favorite was when I was working with a bride who came in by herself.  We had so much fun during the appointment talking about her wedding and getting to know each other. She was able to be really honest with me about what she wanted in a dress and she valued my opinion. It was like I was helping my best friend find her wedding dress.

What kind of advice would you give your brides about dress shopping?

Relax and enjoy the process. Bring people whose opinion really matters to you and you don’t have to invite your entire bridal party to help you pick out your dress. If you want to go dress shopping alone that is okay. Only go to one or two bridal shops to try on dresses. I see brides who are over shopped and overwhelmed by the whole dress buying experience. Once you have found “The Dress”, it is okay to stop looking!

What do you like to do when you aren’t working at Charlotte’s?

When I am not at Charlotte’s I enjoy seeing patients at my private naturopathic medical practice, coaching dance team and spending time with my husband.  I love to curl up on the couch with a good book and some coffee, especially on rainy fall days.
