Frequently Asked Questions - Pre-Consultation
Yes, we highly recommend booking an appointment. Walk-ins are always welcome but there can be a long wait for a change room if we are busy. An appointment ensures that you will have a change room and a consultant at the ready to assist you and give you the best possible experience.
Bridal and bridesmaids appointments are generally 90 minutes. Prom appointments are 60 minutes.
Most of our lounges accommodate 4 people comfortably and some of them can accommodate up to 6 people. We recommend not bringing too many people as sometimes this can mean too many opinions.
It is not required to bring shoes/undergarments, however, if you have a certain pair of Manolo’s that are a must with your wedding dress then please bring them. If you think you want a strapless gown, wearing a strapless bra may also be a good idea.
Yes, we do! We have over 60 samples in store in a variety of styles that are sizes 16 through 30.
After Purchasing a Dress
I've Bought My Dress, Now What?
General delivery for bridal, bridesmaids, prom and mothers dresses is about 4 months. Some bridal gowns can take up to 6 months. We are able to provide rush delivery on certain styles of dresses but not our entire stock.
The balance of your dress is due within 30 days of its arrival at our store or when you first come to try it on, whichever happens first.
We will store your dress for up to 8 months dependent on space. If your wedding is more than 8 months away we may ask that you take it home to store.
We will give you a call with the happy news! Please make sure if you move or change phone numbers that you provide us with an update so that we can reach you.
We always recommend that accessories are chosen and purchased at the time of the dress purchase so that you get the complete look that you envision for your wedding day. However, if you choose to wait to purchase accessories please be aware that they can take up to 4 months to order as well.
Alterations should be started no later than 8 weeks before your event.
Please bring everything that you plan on wearing with your dress for your event. This includes bra, shapewear, and the shoes. Heel height is extremely important if we are hemming your dress, we don’t want to guess, we want to make sure it’s perfect!
Your appointment with the seamstress will be 15-30 minutes. This is not enough time to shop for accessories and get your dress fitted. Just let us know that you would like to look for accessories as well when you come in and we can book you an appointment to accessorize right after your fitting.
Please bring no more than 2 people to your fitting appointment with the seamstress. A large entourage makes it difficult for you and the seamstress to really focus on getting that perfect fit. Everyone will get to see your dress on your big day.
Alterations appointments are 15-30 minutes in length. Bridal gown alterations take between 3-5 fittings on average. Bridesmaids, mothers and prom will average between 2-4. If you live far away or if getting back to see the seamstress this many times may be a problem for you, then you may want to consider choosing someone closer to your home to do your alterations for you.
Please speak up! Only you know how the dress feels on your body. If something doesn’t look or feel right to you, let the seamstress know. If we don’t know that you aren’t happy then we can’t help fix it.
