Before stepping into a bridal salon, take time for you - reflect on your personal style and vision.
Call ahead to our salon to book your intimate consultation. Setting aside a special time for you and your consultant is the first step in your journey.
Take time to review and clip pictures from bridal magazines that inspire your vision to discuss with your bridal consultant.
Keep an open mind when looking for your prefect dress. Your consultant will help you pick a gown that best fits your body shape and personal style to reflect your vision.
Think about Your Wedding Style
Think about the style of your wedding (beach/outdoor garden or a formal black tie event) to help choose a dress that matches your wedding style and vision.
Limit Your Entourage
Our focus is on you and your experience because “it’s about you and your style” we recommend keeping your entourage small to limit confusion and unnecessary stress. Once you’ve chosen your dress, you can always bring your bridal party to review your final selection.
Timelines are an important part of your wedding planning. Discuss with your consultant your best options based on each supplier order placement timeline.
Order Placement timelines: if placing an order we recommend you double your timeline for what it takes for us to get it in our salon (most dresses will be delivered within 3-6 months and may vary by supplier based on type and fabric of your dress).
Off-the-Rack Purchase: if you have a limited timeline to your big day review with your consultant the option to purchase off-the-rack.
Professional Seamstress: allow time for alterations, a dress may require some adjustments to get your best fit. Call ahead to pre-book with the seamstress - don’t delay the seamstress books up quickly.
Review with your consultant the policies and procedures prior to sign-off on your purchase.
Refund Policy: There are no refunds or exchanges upon purchase and/or order placement.
Sizing: measurements will be reviewed with you at time of purchase. Your consultant has experience in this area and assists you to pick the best fit for your body shape. Remember that sizing of gowns differ from each designer and may vary in size from your regular street clothing size.
Upon Arrival: When your gown arrives your consultant will call you to set up your product arrival fitting. It's a good idea to plan ahead for the storage of your dress.
Your Consultant is HERE FOR YOU! If you have any questions or concerns, please discuss them with your bridal consultant during your private consultation…”Let us help take the stress out of your dress!”
