We recommend that you begin dress shopping 9-12 months before your wedding. It can take 6-8 months for your gown to arrive and you will likely need 2-3 months of alterations to get the perfect fit. Giving yourself more time will save you from stress! That being said, we always have rush options so be sure to reach out if you have a tighter timeline!

The majority of our gowns range in price from $4,000-$5,000. Our store has gowns between $3,500-$8,000.

We do not offer in house alterations but we can refer you to expert seamstresses for your ease and convenience.

A trunk show is a special event where one of our designers showcases their newest line with us. They happen throughout the year and we typically offer 10% off of all gowns purchased during the trunk show period.

Wedding gowns are made to be altered and your alterations process will ensure the perfect fit. However, losing an extreme amount of weight (over 2 dress sizes) can affect the ability to alter specific gowns. It’s important to make your alterations specialist aware of any body changes, up or down, before heading into your first fitting.

We work directly with our designers who make gowns in house, not in factories. If you have a tight timeline, we will chat directly with the designer and get you options! Rush orders can be expected less than 6 months before the wedding.
