While each designers lead times vary we do recommend that you start your dress shopping experience and get your dress ordered 9-12 months ahead of your wedding date. This should allow you plenty of time for your gown to arrive and take it in for any alterations needed.
We allow a bride and 6 guests per visit (this count includes everyone from newborns to nanas) for a total of 7 people per appointment. There are times during special events that the total number of guests allowed will be less and that number will be provided in our event details, on our booking site or in an email communication sent to you. We will not allow more than the allotted number of guests per appointment, no exceptions, we keep this the same for all brides. We hope this number does not have to be reduced due to health/safety standard again but we do reserve the right to do so at any time.
We have a large variety of dresses that range from around $900 - $2,500. Our average price is between $1,200 - $1,600.
Although we understand a wedding is certainly a cause for celebration we don't allow any alcohol, drinks (other than bottled water) or food to be brought into the store. We do have a local tavern and winery close by for you to celebrate afterward if you wish.
We carry bridal sample sizes 6-22 in our store. Bridal sizing does vary from regular clothing, in a bridal gown your may wear one to two sizes larger than normal (We know that everyone would prefer this to go the other direction). Example: if you wear a size 12 you might be a 14 or 16 in a wedding dress but this varies by every designer.
We do have options for brides who have less time to plan their wedding. Some of our designers have dresses in stock that we can get quickly. We also have option to sell some sample dresses right off our showroom floor.
We recommend that bridesmaid dresses are ordered 6 months in advance. That will leave plenty of time for the gowns to arrive and for you to take them to have any alterations completed that may need to be done.
We focus on bridal and bridesmaid dresses. We do get asked a lot if we handle mother-of-the-bride/groom or prom dresses but we do not have those type of formal dress options in our store.
