The Elegant Bridal Experience

Enjoy your shopping!

Consider your Wedding Date & Location

Is is helpful to know what season, and what kind of wedding you're going to have.  Your decision will be easier to make if you can envision yourself wearing your gown in the setting of your wedding.
No venue?  Sometimes it's nice to choose your gown before the location!  This way, you can plan around your beautiful gown.

Determine a Budget

It is very important to set a budget when shopping for a bridal gown.  Your sales associate will ask you about your budget in order to help you find your dream gown within a price range that makes sense for you.
Our gowns range in price from $2,000 to $12,000, and we have sample sales throughout the year – so be sure to check out our Events page.

Plan Ahead

We want you to have the most wonderful experience when searching for your gown.  We ask that you call a minimum of one week in advance to schedule an appointment.  This allows us to provide you with our undivided attention.  Keep in mind that it takes approximately 4-6 months to produce a wedding gown.  You should begin shopping a minimum of 9 months in advance of the wedding to allow enough time for alterations once your gown has arrived.

Limit Opinions

This is a momentous and joyous time in your life, so naturally you want to share it with family and friends.  However, be careful of bringing a large group with you to shop for your gown.  Too many opinions can be detrimental to making a decision.  We recommend bringing one to two very close family members or friends who understand and respect your personal style.  The key is to take opinions into consideration – but ultimately you know yourself best, and should choose the gown that makes you feel special.

Communicate with Your Consultant

Bring photographs of styles that interest you and articulate your vision and budget to your consultant.  Don't be afraid to speak up if you don't like something.  Little things can always be changed, and some of our designers are able to create custom gowns.

Enjoy the Experience!

The most important tip is to HAVE FUN and enjoy every minute of this momentous occasion!

We look forward to working with you during this exciting time in your life.  You are going to be a beautiful bride, and we are here to help!
