“I am so excited to start wedding dress shopping! But where do I begin?!”
Great Question! First, Ah Congratulations! We know that as a bride, you will be in a sea of pictures on pintrest, instagram, etc… but we encourage our brides to follow a few tips:
1) Have a venue booked- being able to imagine the gowns you’re trying on in your venue is a great guide while shopping.
2) Be OPEN- be open to trying on different silhouettes and different fabrics, you may just surprise yourself by liking something you didn’t consider before.
3) Focus on YOU- we know that you may have a very specific picture in your mind of how you want to look on your special day, but allow yourself to be your own inspiration! Focus on how you feel and look in the dress, that is what matters most!
“Who should I bring with me to my bridal appointment?”
Wedding dress shopping is so fun and we totally understand that you may want to bring everyone; however, based on experience, we highly recommend you bring a handful of people whose opinion you truly value and who actually know your taste. Remember, the more people, the more opinions and that can sometimes cause - MORE CONFUSION.
“What sample sizes do you carry?”
Our sample dress sizes are between sizes 4 and 18. Please keep in mind that bridal sizes are different than regular street sizes.
“How long does it take to get a wedding dress?”
Our wedding gowns are made to order and therefore do take between 6 to 9 months to arrive. The sooner you begin shopping, the more options you have! We also recommend about 1-month for alterations.
“Do you offer alterations at your boutique?”
We are very supportive of talent and other businesses, and therefore we outsource for alterations. Our recommendations are based on highly-rated reviews and professional assessment. We also recommend seamstresses in a variety of regions as to better accommodate our brides’ location.
“What is the price range of your wedding dresses?”
Our wedding dresses range from $1400-$5000, with most of our dresses ranging between $2000- $4500.
“Do you allow children in your store?”
Although we love the little ones, their adorableness can at times be a distraction from the task at hand. Children age 10 and older are welcome and we ask that they please stay in the seating area as well as be accompanied to the restroom.
“What about walk-ins?”
Wedding dress shopping is such an incredibly special process that takes a lot of attention to detail, a lot of time, and we want to make each appointment as personable as possible. An appointment will allow us to be prepared to give you our utmost attention and service, therefore walk-ins are encouraged to browse but must make an appointment for dress fittings.
