Frequently Asked Questions
Our bridal gown boutique is located on the second floor of the West Avenue shopping center. We are directly on top of Jonathan Adler and in between Azur Hair Salon and Revolution Studio, directly across from the parking garage.
There is complimentary parking in the parking garage attached to the shopping center. You may park on the second floor and walk across the sky bridge, and we are on the left.
We do ask that you book an appointment in advance to ensure that we have a bridal gown consultant and fitting room available for you when you come in. We do however accept walk-ins on weekdays if we have availability.
We always suggest that you wear nude undergarments and a strapless bra to your appointment to get the best overall look of the wedding gowns. You may also bring a high heel that you feel most comfortable in.
Because we are a smaller, more intimate bridal boutique and seating is limited, we do ask that you limit your guests to 2-4 of your nearest and dearest friends or family. We do not allow pets in the boutique, and we do ask that if you are bringing a small child with you, that they are with you at all times.
Our special order wedding gowns range in price from $2,750 – $15000. We do also have a very large selection of off the rack sample bridal gowns that are discounted 40-60% off and are in excellent condition. Sample gowns start at a price point of $1750.
Most of our wedding gowns take anywhere from 5-8 months to special order, depending on the designer, so we recommend that you start shopping around 9-12 months out from the wedding date. We are, however, able to accommodate rush orders as fast as 6-8 weeks for many of our designers for an additional rush fee.
We do have our own seamstress that we work very closely with and recommend her to all of our brides. Please know that wedding dress alterations are a separate cost from the dress and are done off site at our seamstress’s studio. While you are not obligated to use our seamstress, we do highly recommend and trust her work with couture wedding gown alterations.
We carry some of the top wedding gown designers from around the world, and their quality and fit is top of the line. Every dress is handmade by using only the best silk based fabrics, laces, and embroideries from France and Italy.
Appointments are an hour and a half long.
We provide champagne, water, and desserts for all of our guests. You are more than welcome to bring your own drinks, but we do ask that all liquids are clear. We do not allow food in the boutique.
Most of the sample wedding gowns in our boutique are bridal size 8-10. However, we do have a couple plus size samples available as well. Using these samples, we are able to accommodate brides of many different sizes using different clipping techniques. We do the best we can to show you how the gown wedding dress will fit in your particular size. We can special order gowns in sizes 0-22.
Trunk shows can be a great opportunity to find your perfect wedding dress and maybe even meet the designer! During a trunk show, a designer’s brand new collection of gowns will visit our bridal boutique for one weekend, allowing us to have a much bigger selection of gowns by that designer than we normally stock in the salon. It is a chance to see the latest and greatest gowns from that designer that are not even available in stores yet. Brides schedule appointments to try on the wedding dresses and meet with the designer and/or designer representative. We often offer special promotions and complimentary customizations when purchasing during a trunk show event.
A Sample Sale is a great opportunity to get a beautiful couture wedding gown at a fraction of the price! 2-3 times per year, we hold our coveted Sample Sale Event, where we offer over 50 of our wedding gown samples at a discount of 30-60% off. We recommend showing up early because we let in 2-3 brides at a time and the first set of brides gets first pick! Also, be ready to make a quick decision, as your trying on time is limited, and a gown can sell quickly.
