FAQ

Do I need an appointment?
We do require appointments to try on wedding dresses. You are welcome to stop by and browse, but to try on gowns you will need a consultant. Each consultant only can help one client at a time and an appointment will guarantee that you can try on dresses.

How soon do I need to order my gown?
We suggest to order your gown 6-9 months before your big day. Dresses can take 4-6 months, and alterations typically take 3 months. However, if you are in a rush, some of our designers offer rush orders + rush shipping for a fee. 

What is the price point of your gowns?
Our dresses range from $1,000 to $3500 with the average gown price being $1,500 to $2,500. We have some sample gowns that start at $500 and are in a sample size 10-12 for purchase off the floor only.

Who should I bring? 
Bring those closest to you!! We recommend 3-4 people since our boutique is small and we want this to be a personal and intimate experience. We know from years in bridal that too many opinions will confuse you, and make your decision harder. We also prefer no kids be brought into the store... these dresses are special! We are a small boutique, and each viewing area has seating for up to 4 guests. If you bring more, we can not promise we will have enough seating for everyone.

Payment
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, cash (if the correct amount), check and money order. Payment in full is encouraged; however, we accept a 60% deposit with the remaining 40% deposit due within 30 days of the gown arriving.

Returns
All sales are final and deposits are non refundable.  

Sizing
All gowns are sample gowns and we only cary one size per gown, however, we have special tricks to make the gown fit to give you an idea of how the right size will look. We will take your measurements and use our expertise to order the correct size.

We do carry a variety of plus sized gowns, size 14-24 in the shop as well!

Keep in mind alterations are to be expected with any gown purchase to get the perfect fit for your body. We do not have a seamstress in the store, however we have plenty we can reccomend in the area! Expect alterations to cost $300-$500+

How long is my appointment?
Each appointment is an hour and a half, which allows you to try on several gowns with different accessories to find your dream dress! 

What do I need to bring? 
We recommend proper undergarments (a bra if you will be wearing one), spanks (our best friend!) and heels if you have a certain shoe height in mind. That way you can see how the dress will fit and properly lay. We do require underwear when trying on, and will not allow you to try on any without it. 

What if I live out of state?
No problem! We offer shipping for a flat rate of $20 anywhere in the country!
