What do I need to bring with me to try on dresses?


We recommend that you wear nude underwear and encourage you to keep your make-up light for the sake of our gowns. If you have a veil from your mom, or special jewelry that you want to be a part of your big day, bring it along with you.




Who should I bring with me?


We recommend you keep your entourage small due to space and your own decision-making sanity. One to three of your closest loved ones should ensure a good time. We encourage you to leave the little ones at home.




How far in advance do I need to buy my dress?


Bridal - Some designers take 6 or more months to make your made-to-order dress. We encourage you to leave enough time for alterations and bridal portraits, therefore shopping 8 to 12 months before your big day is encouraged. However, we can work with shorter timelines also. If the dress happens to be in stock in your size and color with the designer, we can have it shipped in about 4 weeks. If needed, most designers will offer rush shipping for a fee. Sample dresses can also be purchased off the rack if needed. Prom + Occasion - We have a curated selection of formal dresses that can be purchased off the rack. Most dresses can be ordered in different sizes and colors. If the dress is in stock we can have it to us in as little as 3 weeks. Remember to allow time for alterations.




Will I need alterations?


While your dress is made to order from a standard size chart, most gowns will at least need minimal alterations to fit you perfectly. We do not provide alterations in house, but are happy to recommend a seamstress in the area. Remember, alterations are not included in the cost of the gown.




How do I purchase a dress?


When you've found the one, we will require a 50% deposit plus tax for your purchase. We will order your dress in your specific size and color from the designer. When your dress has arrived, we will contact you for a follow-up appointment to pick up your dress and pay the remaining balance. All sales are final and cannot be returned or exchanged. We accept credit, debit and checks.




How far in advance should I get measured for my tux rental?


We recommend getting measured AT LEAST 3-4 weeks before the event, however, we can order rentals up to 2 weeks before the big day. Remember, the sooner the better!




What are your price ranges?


Bridal Gowns: All of our bridal gowns are under $2,000, depending on the designer. However, a majority of our wedding dresses average $1,000 - $1,500. Casual Wedding Gowns: If you are open to dresses without a train or in a different color, such as blush, champagne or black for example, we offer a selection of dresses that are available at a lower price point ranging from $300 - $700. Prom Dresses: Our prom/formal dresses average $200 - $500 when purchased new. We offer a selection of sample dresses on sale starting at $99. ***Don't forget to leave room in your budget for tax and alterations.
