All of our staff has been fully vaccinated!
In order to keep all our staff and customers safe, we are requiring that all guests wear a face covering in the store. Please note that an appointment is required. We are also following retail CDC guidelines that require us to operate under 50% capacity, so we are limiting the number of guests per bride 4. In between all appointments our rooms are sanitized and wiped down and our stylists wash their hands. It is so important to us that our customers feel safe in our store and we are going to great lengths to ensure that.
You will be working with a professional bridal consultant who will guide you through the amazing journey of finding the dress!
Both you and your consultant will browse gowns and she will assist you with putting them on, it takes a helping hand! We have private viewing rooms that seat comfortably up to 4 guests. If you would like more than 4 guests, please let us know in advance before your appointment. Please note that we are currently operating under covid restrictions. Your younger guests are welcome to join in on the fun, please always watch them.

Life is crazy, everyone works different hours, so we want to make what works for you, work for us. We aspire to give you the royal treatment, this includes having the whole store to yourselves. We want you to enjoy yourselves and let us do what we do best. We think appointments are best so that we can give each bride our undivided attention. We require private appointments to try on wedding gowns, bridesmaid’s dresses, and accessories.
We pride ourselves on giving each customer our undivided attention. Our bridal appointments are 90 minutes and that is typically the perfect amount of time to review our showroom floor and try on the dresses fit for you!
We carry sample sizes from 0 to 32. We strive to carry sample sizes that will work for most brides, but samples rarely fit perfectly. We have techniques and skills that we accumulated over 20 years that will give you an idea of how the dress will look in your size.
We recommend proper undergarments, a comfortable heel, an open mind, and a great attitude. Feel free to email us your Pinterest page and other pictures to give us a better idea of the style, look and silhouette you envision! Your stylist will be ready to guide you with all the information you have, or do not have on the wedding gown of your dreams!
Typically, we recommend no more than 6 people to attend your appointment, but unfortunately due to COVID procedures we must limit brides to 4 additional guests at their appointment. We feel that the opinions of a trusted few make the decision easier and less stressful for you.
