You're closed Saturdays? Why?
Yes, we are closed Saturdays for religious reasons. It also allows our staff to have a treasured day with their families. We understand Saturdays are a popular shopping day, but have found Sundays to often be even more convenient for our customers. We thank you for understanding the personal convictions of our ownership, and we look forward to serving you other days.
What price range are the gowns you offer in?
Our special order wedding gowns start at $2,000. Our prom, pageant, and evening gowns are typically in the $300-800 range. However, we also have a selection of sale gowns marked 30-60% off. Our bridesmaids range from $220-350. Our cocktail, social occasion, and mothers dresses range from approximately $79-600.
What size dresses do you stock?
We carry prom, pageant, and mothers dresses from a 0 to a 26. Selection may vary based upon recent sales and dress arrivals, but we do try to keep a wide range of sizes available at all times. Due to the smaller boutique nature of our bridal department, we only stock couture wedding gowns up to a size 14. However, gowns can be special ordered in any size.
Do I need an appointment to visit your store?
Appointments are required for bridal and bridesmaids, but not for any of our other dresses. Every bridal appointment reserves the entire bridal side of our store, so each bride receives an entirely private appointment.
How many people should I bring to my appointment?
We have seating for a maximum 4 guests in our bridal suite. However, we typically suggest bringing one or two of the people closest to you. We've found that brides often get overwhelmed if there are too many opinions. Just remember, you can always bring your loved ones to see your dress after you've found it! Due to the intimate nature of our private appointments, we do have to strictly enforce the 4 guest limit.
Can I bring children with me to my appointment?
As a general rule of thumb, we discourage bringing children under the age of ten. They often do not have the ability to sit quietly for the length of a bridal appointment, which can keep your other guests from being able to enjoy your moment with you. If you are unable to find childcare and do decide to bring a little one, we simply ask that you also bring a responsible adult to care for them. In order to keep the child safe and accident- free, we ask that they remain seated or in the lap of an adult during the appointment.
Do you offer alterations?
Most dresses need some type of alterations. In order to have the space to carry a larger inventory, we do not have a seamstress in house. Our trained staff will recommend an excellent local seamstress who will take care of all your alteration needs.
