I told her I would, but I told her my budget and said that it was definite, and she never tried to push anything on me or suggest anything that was even close to my limit, which was $3000 max. She offered me cost-saving options that I didn't even know about, and even encouraged me not to change my mind on a couple things. At the end of it all, I walked away with a big smile on my face. The bridal consultant there had a good eye, and once I tried it on, I loved it! I'm not a big shopper; I like efficiency and straightforward business, and I found both.
