COSTS & DEPOSITS
Why do I need an appointment?
We believe that finding YOUR DRESS should be a fun and intimate experience and you deserve our full attention. Your appointment will last between 60-90 minutes. In order to keep this appointment as intimate as possible, we only allow up to 4 guests during your appointment (no children under the age of 12 please).
Do you offer VIP appointments?
Yes! Please see the VIP section below for more information.
Will I get to pick my own dresses off the rack?
Yes. You will be able to pick 10 dresses in the showroom to try on. Our stylists will also select some additional gowns for you to try on as well.
What should I bring to my bridal appointment?
We recommend that you bring the following:
1) Nude undergarments (such as a strapless bra or silicone pasties, high waisted shaping brief or underwear that won’t leave a visible panty line if you plan on wearing a fitted dress). Please note that our bridal stylists will be helping you in and out of the dresses so underwear is a must-have!
2) A pair of heels if you plan on wearing them on your wedding day
3) Finally - be sure to bring an open mind - you never know what you’ll discover by trying on new silhouettes and designs!
How many guests can I bring with me to my bridal appointment?
You may bring up to 4 guests (we ask that you don't bring children under the age of 12)
How much does the gowns cost?
Our wedding dresses run between $1,500 - $5,000 (with the majority of gowns in the $2,500 range).
What is the payment policy?
Once you’ve found THE DRESS, we ask for payment in full.
What is the refund policy?
Given that each dress is made-to-order (meaning the designers only make the dress once an order is placed), all sales are final and no refunds will be issued. You will be asked to sign a legal sales contract upon placing your order.
When should I start dress shopping for my wedding?
Given that wedding gowns are made-to-order (meaning designers only make the dress once you’ve placed an order) and the recent long lead times, we recommend that you start dress shopping 9-12 months before your wedding as you will need some of this time for alterations.
Bridal sizing runs smaller than street sizing (on average, about 2 sizes smaller). For example, if you normally wear a size 6, you can expect that your bridal dress size will be size 10 or larger. Each designer’s sizing will be different. The majority of our sample gowns in the boutique is in size 12 (with a few select dress in plus sizes up to size 24).
Your dress will not fit perfectly and will most likely require alterations after it arrives. Please note the dresses are made-to-order and not made-to-measure (meaning the gowns comes in a standard size and will require a seamstress to alter the dress to properly fit your body and this process can take an additioanl 2-3 months to complete). Although we do not offer in-house alterations, we can make recommendations for seamstresses in the local area.
