No, we do not charge for our standard appointment types. To reserve your appointment we require a credit card on file that will be charged $50 in the event the appointment is canceled with less than 24-hour notice or you do not make it to your appointment. We charge your card if you do not arrive within 15 minutes of the scheduled appointment time without notice. We offer a variety of paid appointment types ranging from $50 - $250 with options to include more guests, have the store to yourself, and make your experience that much more special! Our bridesmaid appointments have a $75 styling fee that will be applied towards the purchase of your bridesmaids dress.
Typically our experienced Stylist find our Brides find the perfect gown within an hour to an hour and a half.
Our dresses start at $1,000. The average price of the majority of our gowns is in the $1,500-2,000 range. Our Mother’s collection starts at $300, with the average price is $500-$800. Our Bridesmaids collection starts at $200.
The short answer is the sooner the better! Your gown could take up to 6 months to be made for you! However, we work closely with designers that have gowns in production in size 0-34 and most gowns can be ordered on a “rush” if need be. We also have options out of the collection for quick wedding dates.
Yes! Shopping for wedding dresses can be stressful for any bride, but for the plus-size bride, it can be more of a challenge. We’ve all heard the horror stories of judgmental stylists and embarrassingly small assortments of dresses to try on that leave brides-to-be shaking in their bridal shoes. We have a beautiful collection of plus size gowns in our salon and experienced stylists to guide you through the whole process. We have strapless, sleeves, ball gowns, lace, fit to flare etc… we have it all! We currently have over 100 gowns exclusively in our plus size collection ready for you to try on!
We ask that each bride include no more than four of their most trusted loved ones join them in-store, and we ask none of your guests are under the age of 10. For Bride’s who would like to include additional guests please look at our bridal appointment menu to see our available appointment types for you and your loved ones!
No, we do not. However, we will carefully choose the gowns we do put you in so that the selection process is stress-free. Don’t be surprised if the first gown we put you in is the one you end up saying “yes” to.
It’s best to come with an open mind and be willing to trust the process, you will be working one on one with a professional stylist who’s going to help make saying yes to the dress fun & easy! If you have pictures of your style that can be very helpful. Your stylist will assist you in and out of gowns so be prepared by having on undergarments that you feel comfortable in, most gowns do not require a bra & if needed we are able to provide a bra for the proper fit. If you have a shoe or heel height you are comfortable in it is best to bring a pair of shoes in that height for measurements.
No! We have a variety of flexible payment plans for your convenience.
A Trunk Show is an opportunity to see dresses that are new and not in stores yet, or in some cases, dresses that are “just visiting” and are not part of our permanent collection. There is not an actual “show”, just more beautiful dresses for you to choose from. View our upcoming events here.
We generally only have one or two of a dress style here in the salon as our sample. With some exceptions, our samples may be purchased out of the collection. Some of these gowns can be sold at a reduced price in as-is condition.
Yes, we have plenty of parking in front of our salon at 1100 Commerce Drive Suite C, look for our Pink Golf cart!
We ask that no children under 10 join you in-store. If one of your trusted guests is a male, we welcome you to bring him!
