Call ahead to be sure you have the time and attention needed for your selection.
Bring along a close family member or friend… not everyone you know (too many opinions will cause you problems). Our private boutique will comfortably seat 4 guests.
Wear appropriate undergarments like a strapless bra and white or nude underwear.
PLEASE leave small children, (under 8) at home so you can focus on your special day.
Plan to make a deposit of 1/2 down on your dress so you can be assured it’s there for your day! Bridesmaids will need at least 1/2 down to place order! Our brides will not be charged for a bridesmaid appointment but otherwise it is a $25.00 non refundable styling fee to bring in your girls.
Bring in pictures and thoughts of the “type” of wedding you imagine…casual, elegant etc..
Have a budget in mind and remember today gowns average cost is over $1,400.00, ( per “The Knot” survey). We try very hard to keep the quality of our gowns high, yet affordable!
Remember most gowns will need alteration work for a bustle, side seams & hem. Most large shops average $400!
Allow 4-6 months to order any gowns, bridesmaids or mother’s to allow for any problems and to ensure time for alterations!
Allow at least 1-2 hours to try on any gowns. Special request services and times have a $25.00 nonrefundable fitting fee, which will be taken off if you purchase!
Don’t plan to shop online and get the same exceptional service and quality gowns as our shop offers!
Remember you want your wedding day to be exceptional! Don’t settle for CHEAP imitations, life is short so buy the dress!!
