Finding your gown

Finding a wedding gown can be a very stressful time for a bride. Here are a few tips to be mindful of prior to booking your first bridal appointment.

  1. Know the date, time, and venue of your wedding so you can choose the perfect gown to match your theme.

  2. It takes four to six months to receive your gown once you have made your purchase. If you are in a time crunch, you can do a rush order. One designer doesn’t charge extra to get your dress sooner. We also have 100’s of wedding gowns you can buy off the rack.

  3. Be mindful of your budget. If you have a $2,000 budget for a wedding gown, keep in mind that a portion of that budget may need to go towards expenses for alterations. Alterations are usually $200 to $250 but can be higher depending on the changes you want.

  4. Bring the friends and family whose opinions you value the most when choosing your wedding gown.
