Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I need an appointment to look at bridal gowns?
We highly recommend you book an appointment with us to select your wedding gown. After saying "Yes!" to your fiancé, this will be the most important decision you will make for your wedding, and an appointment will allow us to give you the personal attention and service you deserve! If you are not on our schedule we will make every effort to assist you quickly, however, booked appointments will always be honored first.
How long will my appointment last?
Appointments are usually an hour to an hour and a half long, but may go longer if our schedule allows it. Friday and Saturday appointments are usually for one hour, as they are our busiest days of the week. You may want to book separate appointments if you also need to shop for bridesmaids, tuxedos, mother's dresses, etc. although we understand you may have to do it all at once if you are from a long distance! Please let us know what you are looking for and we will schedule your appointment accordingly.
What if I need to cancel my appointment?
We get it, life happens! However, we are a small boutique who takes a limited amount of brides a day, so please take your appointment time seriously and cancel within 48 hours if a conflict comes up.
How many people should I bring with me?
Some brides prefer to shop alone; however, brides usually bring one or two people...mom, sister, best friend, sometimes even a fiancé!
We don't recommend bringing a large group with you as too many opinions will just confuse and frustrate you. If you are considering bringing more than three people with you, please let us know so we can make special arrangements to accommodate your party. Small children usually become restless so you may want to leave them at home and make this a special adult outing. If you bring children, they will need to be supervised by another adult. Whoever you decide to invite, make sure you bring trusted people who have your best interests at heart and know your personal style. After all, this is the most important piece of clothing you will ever wear!
Can I take pictures?
You will be able to take pictures during your appointment, although we recommend you focus on your top three favorites and not take pictures of every dress you try on. We ask that you be courteous of other brides who may be shopping or having fittings.
And definitely take a picture with our "I said YES" sign when you find the dress of your dreams!
What else should I know about my appointment?
There are a few things you should think about before you try on dresses. It is helpful to look at bridal magazines, Pinterest and legitimate websites to get an idea of what styles appeal to you. (Watch out for those Chinese knock-off websites! They steal pictures from real designers!) A great place to start is the links on our website, which will take you to reputable bridal companies we highly recommend. Start the search for your wedding gown now!
Other things to consider are:
*Do you prefer white, ivory, blush, taupe, light gold, black or another color for your bridal gown?
* What colors are you considering for your bridesmaids? Make sure they will blend with the shade of your bridal gown!
*Do you have a theme for your wedding? You can get some great ideas from our Pinterest boards.
Some popular themes are Country/Rustic, Burgundy, Lace & Shabby Chic, Blush Pink, Sequin or Boho Wedding Inspirations!
*What is the budget for your gown? Remember, your outfit may also include a headpiece, veil, jewelry, undergarments
and shoes. Also, keep in mind that your alterations will be an additional charge if you choose to have us do them.
*Most of all, have fun at your appointment! Remember that this is YOUR wedding and YOUR dream dress.
Don't let friends or family members talk you into anything you don't absolutely love. For every bride there is a perfect
dress waiting to be discovered. It will whisper enchantment when viewed, evoke emotion when tried on and inspire
new beginnings when worn. Every bride deserves such a gown, and this is why we are here for you!
