WHO SHOULD I BRING WITH ME TO MY PRIVATE APPOINTMENT?
Family and friends who you value their opinion and understand your personal style. We know it’s the most important dress you’ll ever wear, and you want to make sure it’s absolutely perfect. But having 10 different opinions makes it much harder to come to a consensus—and it can bring you farther away from what you actually want. We ask that no more than 5 additional guests accompany you to your bridal shopping appointment. Please let the consultant know your guest number when you book your appointment, as we have a different sized rooms in our house based on your guest number.We do ask that you do not bring children, you can book them a private appointment if they need to be serviced.

Wedding gowns prices range from $500 to $3000 depending on the designer. Bridesmaid’s gowns range from $100 up to $300.
HOW CAN I PAY FOR MY DRESS?
We accept all cash and all major credit cards. We prefer that you pay for your gown in full.

This option allows you to take home your gown and make small monthly payments on your gown.
WHAT IF I LIVE OUT OF STATE?

We place your order the same day as your purchase is made Monday-Friday. Average arrival is 4 to 6 months, depending on the designer and the time of year. Special ordering your gown with custom changes may take a little longer. Rush shipping is available from most designers for an additional charge.
HELP! I’m getting married less than 4 months – is it too late to get a gown from you?
Don’t worry- we’ve got options!
You can definitely purchase a gown “off-the-rack,” which means you’ll be purchasing a sample that has been previously tried on. These gowns are in excellent condition and are typically reduced in price.
We also have some manufacturers that have extremely quick rush options, or some stock options!
Give us a call, preferably on a week day, so we can be as thorough as possible!
