Do I need an appointment to try on wedding gowns?
In order to ensure the very best experience, we do recommend that brides make an appointment, particularly on Saturdays. You’ll find our knowledge of the Bridal industry invaluable. Our professional consultants will assist you in every aspect of your wedding attire. An appointment will provide you with personal one-on-one service to show you the best we have to offer. We do our very best to accommodate all walk-ins; however, we can give you our undivided attention when an appointment is made.
How long is my bridal appointment?
We try not to put a limit on the time you can spend with us during the week. We find that the average bride spends about two hours with us during her first appointment. Saturday appointments are limited to about two hours.
What sizes do you offer?
Our store is stocked with sizes ranging from 4 - 30. We will order your correct size, according to your measurements and the designer’s size charts. Most of our bridal gowns are available in sizes ranging from 2-30. However, it’s important to note that not all gowns are available in these sizes, each designer varies.
What is the price range of your bridal gowns?
Our gowns on average range between $99 to $2,200. Our couture lines are on the higher end of the scale because of their impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail. We do offer gowns for every price range. Your personal bridal consultant will be able to lead you in the best direction based on your budget.
What should I bring to my appointment?
Bring pictures of dresses you’ve seen on our website, in magazines, Pinterest, Instagram, or that you’ve tried on elsewhere. This will help your consultant understand what kind of look you’re envisioning. It’s also important to bring an open mind; you may be surprised at what gowns you end up falling in love with.
Who should I bring to my appointment?
Bring the closest friend or family member whose opinion you value, who knows you well and with whom you want to share the experience of buying your gown.
How far in advance should I order my gown?
We highly recommend ordering your gown at least six to eight months before the wedding. Delivery times vary based on the designer. Most of our designers take at least four months to come in and any orders with custom changes will require more time. It is always helpful to order your gown as soon as you know it’s the one, as it can be a wonderful detail to kick off the rest of your planning.
Do all dresses need to be ordered or can I buy off the rack?
We have a large selection that can be purchased right off the rack!
Does The Bridal Shoppe have payment options?
All bridal gowns ordered require a 50% deposit and $30 monthly payments after the dress arrives in the store. In stock dresses put into layaway require a 20% deposit with payments of $30 monthly thereafter. We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
Do you carry Accessories?
Yes, we do! We are able to dress our brides from head to toe with accessories ranging from veils, headpieces, combs, headbands, jewelry, and shoes.
Do you offer tuxedos?
