Wedding planning is an exciting time.  When it comes to wedding dress shopping we want it to be as stress free as possible. Planning ahead and giving yourself enough time for all the necessary details when it comes to ordering your wedding gown is so important! Ideal time to order your wedding dress is 8-10 month before your wedding date.  Gowns arrive to the shop between 4-6 months from order date.  You will then need to provide your alterations specialist 45-60 days before wedding to get your gown properly fitted. If your date is closer than 8 months - DON'T PANIC we have helped many, many brides with quicker wedding dates.  Our designers have some gowns in stock that have quicker ship dates. Our professional stylist can work with stock options and gowns available to take home same day to help you find your wedding dress. 


Our experienced stylist are here to help you find the gown that showcases the REAL you!  The gown that makes you feel beautiful, shows off your personality and completes the vision of your unique wedding. We have samples in sizes 8-30 and gowns can be ordered in sizes 0-34 (depending on specific styles). Gowns are ordered based off of bust, waist and hip measurements that are then compared to the designers size chart.  If you are on the petite size we can do custom hem which will help get the proper fit. (there is a small fee for special hem) 


It is worth noting that when you come dress shopping be ready to fall in love with your dress. Wedding dress shopping is an emotional decision. If we are looking at quicker shipping gowns or off the rack options we can not promise they will be available if you take time to think about it. Being ready to say YES will save you from trying to recreate the wonderful moment that is finding your gown.
