When setting a date for your wedding or deciding when to shop for a dress, keep in mind that special order gowns typically take anywhere from 4-6 months to come in. It is a good rule of thumb to buy your gown at least 9 months before your wedding day, to allow for alterations. However, gowns can be rushed at an extra fee, so if you are unsure you have enough time, just give us a call. We may be able to offer you one of our in-stock gowns at a discount.
Although appointments are not necessary, we highly recommend them so that we can provide you the quality service an individual appointment offers. Appointments generally last an hour to an hour and a half.
We believe that no matter what your budget is you deserve to find your perfect dress! Our gowns range from $300-$2,200, so you’ll be sure to find something that looks great and fits your budget.
All of our dresses are sample gowns to try on and range in size depending on the style. We carry sizes 4-22 in stock, with smaller and larger sizes that can be ordered.
We encourage you to bring pictures of dresses you like so we can get an idea of your style. Although we may not carry the same dresses, we will work hard to find similar styles that our inventory and designers offer.
It’s best to bring just a couple of your close family or friends whose opinions you trust. Bringing too many people can make the decision difficult and overwhelming. Ultimately, your opinion is the most important. We do have Wi-Fi available for Skyping/Facetiming those important people who aren’t able to make it to your appointment.
A strapless bra is always helpful. We do provide strapless bras if you don’t have one or forget to bring yours to the appointment.
I’m getting married in the Mount Washington Valley and would like to have my dress steamed before my wedding. Do you offer this service?
Yes. If you purchased your gown with us, we will always steam your gown free of charge. If you got your gown elsewhere, we would be glad to steam it for a minimal charge. Please call for further information.
If you plan to keep your gown, we offer gown preservation through a third party vendor. You can visit their website to get more information about the preservation process at: www.gownpreservation.com. You can also call or stop in to get more info or an estimate on what it would cost to preserve your gown.
