F A Q ' S
When should I start shopping for my wedding gown?
If possible, we recommend beginning shopping for your bridal gown 9 months before your wedding to allow for the possible full time a gown can take to arrive as well as alterations. If you are having bridal portraits done, begin 9-12 months before portraits!
For brides with closer wear dates, we have plenty of options to help you find the gown of your dreams! Many options are available to take home the same day! Special Order options may be limited due to delivery timing and/or current stock availability with a designer.
We have helped a bride shopping on Friday, for a Sunday Wedding, so we can do it, we would just prefer a little more time than three days!
What are the price ranges of your gowns?
Our bridal gowns range from $1,299 - $4,599 and our current try on collection ranges around Bridal Sizes 8 - 26.
(keep in mind bridal sizes are different than ready to wear and sizing varies by designer)
Do you do in house alterations?
We do not but have a wonderfully curated list that our brides have used in the past that we provide our brides with upon their gown arriving. We have found that our brides appreciate having several to choose from instead of one singular option in house.
How much can you alter down/up a gown?
It really depends on the shape of the gown and the seam allowance available in the gown. Most tailors will tell you that they can usually alter down two to three sizes in most gowns. Letting out a gown is a bit more tricky as it is solely dependent on the available seam allowance in the gown as this is not a standard amount therefore we always suggest erring on the side of caution and purchasing/ordering a gown that fits or slightly too big as we can always make them smaller, making them grow is a bit harder.
Why do you have a Courtesy Fee?
(P.S. It's not just a cancellation fee)
As we are sure that you can understand, we have reserved this appointment time specifically for a bride and prevented others from booking this reservation spot. The courtesy fee is present to encourage cancellations within the requested time frame because, outside of this time frame, we are unable to refill that reservation . Out of respect to other brides, that may be on our wait list, the courtesy fee is also present to discourage No Show appointments and No Intent appointments, both of which will be charged the fee.
Do you take checks?
We accept cash and credit cards but are unable to accept checks.
Do you have payment plans?
We do offer options for our brides! Your stylist will be able to discuss the details with you during your appt as the options are based on several factors. including your wedding date/alterations timeframe.
