Of course. We have a highly skilled staff of devoted individuals who are standing by to assist with bustles, zippers, corsets and lacing. Our dedicated staff will be honest regarding the selection, style, color and fit.

We have no issues at all with you taking photos. We have nothing to hide. A full list of details including the price, designer name, size, color and modifications available from the designer are attached to each dress.

No. We are so thrilled to have you shopping at our bridal salon that we cannot imagine charging you to be here. We find it graceless that some stores actually do this.

We typically recommend ordering two sizes larger.

This to ensure that all of your bridesmaids dresses match exactly in color. When the order is placed all at once, the dresses will be cut from the same dye lot of fabric.

This is the lone service that we offer by appointment only. If you need to have your gown ready earlier than normal, say to accommodate your bridal portraits, we recommend having your alterations scheduled three months prior to your wedding. Normally, we schedule alteration appointments four to five weeks prior to the wedding. This timeline helps to ensure that you will achieve your balanced weight if you have been dieting.

It is vital when you come to your fitting appointment that you bring with you everything you will be wearing on your wedding day. Most importantly, please have the shoes you will be wearing with you. Your hemline will be pinned according to the heel you are wearing at the time of alterations. Additionally, please wear or bring the foundation garments you plan on wearing beneath your dress so we can ensure that all is adequately sized and hidden from view as the dress is fitted to your body.

Jewelry and shoes typically take no more than a month. In many instances, these items are in stock and ship immediately.

Not at all. We are happy to store your dress in our immaculate warehouse until you are ready for it.

It would be our pleasure. We are happy to press your gown for your portrait and for your big day, at no additional cost.

If your bridal party is local, they can pop into the store anytime that is convenient to place their order prior to the deadline that is agreed upon in advance. For any girls out of town, we offer a convenient “out-of-town bridesmaid” section on our website for assistance. We are happy to oversee your entire bridesmaid order and will notify you once the dresses arrive.

We are able to coordinate that for you. We have been working for years with a company that we love. They offer our clients a $25 discount to go through us for this service. It is best to bring in your dress as soon as possible after the wedding.

Absolutely. We understand that many brides know exactly what they want before they arrive or have no clue and do not wish to have multiple people or opinions hoisted up them. Whatever works best for you works perfectly well for us.

Because our garments are marked down to the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer, the bridesmaid dresses we carry are already priced below other bridal boutiques in the area. This is the least we are permitted to charge.
