Your dresses should be ordered from the same store which will allow them to be cut from the same dye lot of fabric. Noticeable differences can occur otherwise. We will email the bride all of the required paperwork including a sales contract and size chart. Once returned with full payment, which can be done over the phone, the order will be placed. Stress free and easy, allow us to handle your out of town attendants.
Bridal is by appointment, therefore allowing a highly trained consultant to stay with you and help you to select the perfect gown. Appointments usually take about an hour and a half but you are not limited by that time. Because we want all customers to have a wonderful experience, it is important that you arrive on time for your scheduled appointment. We will work with you until you find something you love!
If you are shopping for prom, homecoming, social occasion, etc. you DO NOT need an appointment as we are fully staffed for those areas of the store.
We have dresses for every budget in our store. Ordering a brand new bridal gown starts at $1200 and goes up from there. However, we can sell our samples off the rack for a discounted price.

While that is a personal decision, we strongly suggest that you limit the amount of people that you bring along with you. Often, too many opinions can create a stressful and confusing situation, thus making the experience not as enjoyable. Share your shopping trip with those who know you best and share your taste in fashion.
There are just a few things that you need to bring with you for your appointment. If you have been researching online and have styles that you’re interested in, have some pictures ready to show us. This helps us get started in the right direction. With that being said, try to have a price point in mind. Our gowns range in price and we would never want to put you in something out of reach. Also, bring the undergarments you plan on wearing. All of our dresses have built in structure in the bodice so if you are okay without a bra, it might be easier to see how the dress will look in the end.
Bridal gowns generally take 3-9 months to receive in the store. Once you have decided on your gown, your consultant will professionally measure you and show you the manufacturer's size chart. She will show you where you fall on the chart, however you pick your size. We accept visa, mastercard, discover, check, or cash for your initial deposit of 50%. We do not accept checks for final pick up as they must clear before merchandise is taken out of the store.
Bridesmaids gowns usually take about 4-5 months. It is best to shop for them about 6 months in advance to allow enough time for alterations. Once a gown is chosen, we will measure you. A size chart is provided by each designer and you will choose the size you are interested in ordering. We do require full payment from the entire bridal party before placing the order which ensures all dresses are cut from the same dye lot of fabric.
Prom/Homecoming gowns are typically “buy off the rack”. We can always check on ordering something if it is not in store, however all sales are final. We are always stocked with beautiful gowns so the best thing to do is to come in and try different things on!
Social Occasion/Mother of the Bride or Groom gowns can be ordered if you shop 6 months in advance or if the gown is in stock. We also sell off the rack in this department for a 50% discount.
Your consultant will ask you various questions about where you are in your gown search. She will also learn about your wedding and your personal style. She will then choose gowns for you to try on and assist you in the dressing room. Her knowledge and guidance will help you to make the best choice possible.
