G. Marie's Questions:
How long does it take for a dress to arrive?
As long as the dress is in stock with the vendor, most dresses arrive in about a week - 10 days. A rush fee may apply if requiring a sooner arrival.
Do dresses come in other colors?
Most vendors offer at least one other color in each style dress.
Do you offer alterations?
Yes, we are happy to offer in-house alterations for an additional fee.
Brides & Guys Questions:
Am I required to order my bridal gown?
We offer off the rack purchases, as well as, ordering. You may find your dream dress in our stock or samples and need to order a different size. If your gown is in stock with the vendor it only takes about a week to 10 days for it to arrive. If your dress is made to order most vendors require 4-6 months.
Who do I bring to my bridal appointment?
We recommend being selective in your choices Choose people who help you make a decision. You want to keep things stress-free and too many opinions can make the process much more difficult.
What should I wear to my appointment?
When selecting your outfit, remember you will have your picture taken once you have found your dream dress! We suggest you wear nude undergarments. Shapewear is a great idea - Underwear is REQUIRED when trying on our gowns. No heavy makeup or spray tans to insure the gowns remain white. Trying on several gowns is hard work so don't forget your deodorant. Please do not wear lotions or oils and no heavy perfumes. No jewelry that can snag the delicate lace on a gown or veil.
We offer payment plan options. If ordering a dress we require at least 60% down. If purchasing from the rack we will gladly discuss the options with you but most plans split the total into 3 payments.
What about alterations?
Most bridal gowns will need some alterations and we are happy to provide in-house alterations with one of our talented seamstresses. Alterations are not included in the price of your bridal gown.
What else do you carry?
We love it when we are your one stop shop! We carry veils, jewelry, shoes, gloves, garters and other accessories, suits/tuxes, Mother's, Bridesmaids, Flowergirl, attendee and more!
