FAQ

What is the price range of your dresses?

Currently our gowns range from $600 to $4500 with the majority of our gowns between $1200 to $2500. We also have a great sample sale selection with gowns ranging between $400-$1800.

 

Will I need alterations?

Yes, alterations are an essential finishing touch to any gown to make it truly yours. We do not provide in-house alterations, but recommend two fabulous tailors who work independently of our shop. We offer these suggestions as a helpful resource to our brides and you of course aren’t required to use one on our list if you have another trusted tailor, family member, or friend who you feel comfortable with to help with alterations. Each of our recommended tailors are willing to meet with you at our shop for personal fittings.

 

When should I start shopping?

We recommend shopping for your wedding dress seven to twelve months before your wedding. If you are ordering less than six months before your wedding, there may be rush fees depending on the designer. For shorter timelines, we do have a limited selection of gowns that can be sold off the rack.

 

What size gowns are the sample dresses?

We carry one sample of each dress usually a bridal size 8, 10, or 12. Bridal gowns tend to run 1-2 sizes smaller than street size clothing. Our samples most likely will not fit you perfectly; we will use our handy-dandy clips to clip the gown down to size, or will gladly arrange for larger sample gowns to be shipped in (upon availability).

 

What should I bring with?

You’re welcome to bring own strapless bra and/or shapewear if you like. We do not provide any foundations to go under our dresses.
