When should I start shopping for my gown?

We recommend starting your search 9-12 months before your wedding. BUT we can accommodate almost any timeline. Start by looking at different styles in magazines and online and envision what type of gown suits your personality, location and style. 

Do you require an appointment to try on wedding dresses?

We prefer our bridal clients to have an appointment so we can provide them with the signature service we are known for. We like to treat each of our clients with one-on-one personal service and use our time to find their perfect bridal gown. Making an appointment will insure that our consultants are able to devote their full attention to you. You can make one online on our "Contact Us" page. We do accommodate walk-ins, but appointments are ideal.

Who should I bring gown shopping with me?

The experts advise not to bring too many people. Your mom and one or two other trusted people seem to be the perfect combination. We have seen that too many people can often overwhelm the bride because everyone has an idea of what they see you wearing on your wedding day. Pick only a few people who love you to come and your experience will be a lot more enjoyable. You will have a better chance of being successful in your quest. In the end, we want you to find your gown that makes you feel amazing. You are the only one who will really know when you have found the gown that accomplishes this.

Can I bring in pictures to show my consultant?

Definitely! But, we strongly advise that you remember two things. First, bridal designers use models who are about 6' tall, with a team of lighting designers and make up artists. The gown will look beautiful in person, but may be different than the photos you've seen. The second thing to keep in mind is that many designers advertise gowns, but have a much wider selection than what you see in the magazines. We have had many brides come in with a picture of a certain gown, but have left purchasing an entirely different gown. - In those cases, our staff worked to find the gown that made the bride FEEL perfect!

Can I bring a camera and take pictures the gowns I like in your shop?

In order to protect the integrity of the manufacturer's design, photos are not permitted. This is a common policy in the bridal shop industry.  Due to the increase of dress copies being sold as originals, we can't allow photos to be taken in our shop. As partners, and authorized retailers, we have an agreement with our designers that we will do everything we can to maintain the copyright of their designs.
However, once you have purchased the gown in our shop, you may take as many pictures of beautiful you in your new gown.

How do I choose the right size for my gown?

All bridal attire is not made to measure. They are cut to a size on each manufacturer's sizing chart and are not consistent with ready-to-wear sizes. A size is chosen based on the least amount of alterations necessary for an excellent fit. Generally, most gowns need some alterations. Our bridal consultants can help you choose a size by showing you the particular manufacturer's size chart, but the final decision is yours!

Should I look for my wedding gown and the bridesmaids’ gowns on the same day?

Ideally, you'll find your wedding gown first, then we'll move to our bridesmaid dresses and guide you through our full selection. If you decide you need to include more of your girls, or want to finalize your color palatte before ordering, we can definitely set up another appointment for you.

May I bring my children?

We love children! However, choosing your wedding gown is one of the most important decisions you will make for your wedding. When shopping for your gown, it's best if you can focus and concentrate without distraction. In our experience, a bridal salon is not a real fun place for kids. They usually get bored very quickly, and distract you from focusing on you!
