Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, please! We are by appointment only so that we can give each bride a unique and personal experience.
To ensure an exceptional experience, we charge a $25 deposit Tuesday-Friday, and $50 on Saturday. We will happily apply this fee toward your selected wedding gown. This fee is refundable for any cancellations made up to 48 hours prior to your appointment time.
All cancellations with less than 48 hours notice, as well as no-shows, will automatically be charged $50.
Bridal appointments allow for up to 90 minutes. This is usually the ideal amount of time to try on several dresses, narrow the selection and choose your dress without feeling rushed. If you need more time, we will be happy to schedule a return visit.
Our dresses range between $1800 - $5000. We do our best to have a wide selection to make every bridal budget happy. Accessories, alterations, tax and shipping not included.
We can comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests in addition to the bride. If your party is larger than 6, please contact the store prior to your appointment for pricing. Sorry, no children under age 12 are allowed in the boutique.
We all adore our little ones very much; however, we do not allow children under age 12 in the boutique under any circumstances. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
We do not allow any outside food or drinks, other than water, in the boutique. We do offer a complimentary champagne toast when you say YES to your dress! Elite Bridal Packages do include 2 bottles of champagne. Cheers!
If you have a specific vision in mind, feel free to bring us some pictures for inspiration. While most of our dresses already have bra cups in them, a strapless bra may be helpful as well. We also suggest wearing nude or light-colored panties. Underwear is required to try on dresses.
Shoes aren't necessary for your appointment as you will be stepping in and out of the dresses barefoot to avoid damage and tears. Your stylist will assist you with getting in and out of each dress, so wear undergarments that you're comfortable in.
It takes approximately 6 - 8 months to order your dress and about 2 months for alterations. So, please be ready to place your special order 9 - 12 months prior to your wedding day to avoid rush fees and production delays. If you're on a time crunch, give us a call and we can talk you through some alternative options.
Yes, we do! The gowns have been tried on before, but they are in great condition and available at a discounted price.
It is a magical weekend when we highlight one of our Designers. For a limited time, we are able to show you additional dress options that are not normally carried in store. It's a great time to find your dream dress!
We only want the best seamstresses to tailor your dress. Once your gown arrives, we will provide you with the names of our highly recommended, locally independent seamstresses, who have many years of bridal tailoring experience. They will perfect your gown to comfortably fit you the way you want. They will consult with you regarding pricing and scheduling.
We are located in a downtown setting where 2-hour street parking is available as well as a nearby parking garage.
Be open minded and expect to have fun! It's your special day so enjoy the moment. Bring your closest friends or family members whose opinions matter most to you.
Keep in mind that it is okay and very common to find your gorgeous dress at your first boutique (and sometimes it's even the first dress you try on!). If you love your dress, love your experience and love your boutique, it's the one! There's no need to second guess yourself wondering if there's something else out there.
Also, find a boutique that has great reviews, is clean and organized and has a vast assortment of today's styles. Remember to choose a dress that you love and makes you feel beautiful and confident. We can't wait to meet you!
