Frequently Asked Questions

DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT?

While we do not turn away anyone that comes into our store, appointments are necessary if you plan to try on any dresses. Appointments will guarantee that we have a dressing room available and a Bridal Stylist to assist you and answer any questions you may have.

 

 HOW LONG DO APPOINTMENTS LAST?

Each appointment to shop for dresses is 1 hour long. If you would like to look at Bridal gowns AND bridesmaids in the same day, for example, you will need to schedule a separate appointment for each. In that case, you would have a 2 hour long appointment. All other appointments are based upon the appropriate time needed and range from 30 minutes to 1 hour.

 

 WHAT TO BRING TO THE APPOINTMENT?

Please wear the appropriate undergarments for selecting a dress. The Bride to Be has strapless bras for your use during your appointment, or you may bring your own. A Bridal Stylist will be helping you in and out of each dress, so please wear undergarments you are comfortable being seen in. Also, if you have any inspiration pictures you’ve found online or in magazines, please bring those along, too!

 

 WHO TO BRING TO YOUR APPOINTMENT?

Please limit your guests to the MOST important people needed to help you choose your wedding gown. Each bridal area comfortably seats 4-5 guests. We have found that more than this can make a bride confused or frustrated with so many opinions.  In addition, while the staff at The Bride to Be love children, our shop is not considered a kid friendly environment. We understand sometimes bringing children is unavoidable, but please use common courtesy when deciding to bring children. With limited time at each appointment, we want to make sure our time is best used to focus on the bride!

 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY BRIDAL GOWN?

Dresses typically take 4 to 6 months to arrive from the time of purchase. If you need a dress sooner, please inquire about purchasing a sample dress off the rack, or “rush orders” which can sometimes be approved by the designer. Rush orders will always be an additional fee.

 

WHAT IS THE PRICE RANGE FOR BRIDAL GOWNS?

Our gowns range from $1,000 to $3,000.

 

WHAT SIZES OF GOWNS DO YOU CARRY?

Our sample gowns range between a size 10 and size 26. Depending on the designer, dresses may be ordered from size 00-32.

 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY  BRIDESMAID DRESS?

Dresses typically take 3 to 4 months. We wait and order all your bridesmaid dresses together after all sizing and deposits are received.

 

HOW TO PAY?

When ordering one of our bridal gowns, we require half down to order the dress, and the other half is to be paid within two weeks once the dress has arrived in our store. If you purchase a sample, the full amount is paid upfront and you take the dress with you that day! We accept cash, check, or all major credit cards.
