WHO SHOULD I BRING WITH ME WHEN TRYING ON GOWNS?

Bring your closest friends or family. Share your bridal experience with those who understand your style and opinion you value. We recommend limiting your group to three others. A lot of people can mean a lot of opinions and can take the focus off of you.

Fittings can take up to two hours and for a child, once they know they can not run around or touch anything, a bridal salon is not a fun place to be. For this reason we strongly recommend you not bring children under the age of 12 to any bridal store. An upset child will pull our attention from the bride and her bridal experience. Due to the nature of bridal boutiques there are possible safety hazards. Your bridal appointment is a time for you to focus on yourself, with no distractions.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO TRY ON DRESSES?

  • Photos of the styles of gowns you like (if you have them)
  • Strapless bra
  • A hair tie
  • Shape-wear (such as Spanx)
  • Special jewelry you would like to wear on your wedding day
  • No lipstick or base make-up please

CAN I RETURN MY PURCHASE?

No, all items are final sale.
