Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need an appointment to try on wedding gowns?
As stated above, we currently are open, preferably by appointment. Please call (519) 934-3883 to book your appointment.
Who should I bring with me to the appointment?
We are asking that our guests bring no more than 5 people total (including the bride). You are more than welcome to bring guests with you! We do advise that you bring those whose opinions mean the most to you. Try to limit your group to two or three people, as sometimes it can get very confusing with too many opinions, and your opinion is the one that matters the most.
Do I need to bring/wear anything in particular for the appointment?
Please wear appropriate undergarments (ie. underwear is a must), a strapless bra, and shoes if you have a preferred heel height. Try to keep make-up to a minimum.
How early should I be shopping for my wedding gown?
We suggest starting your search for a gown about 9-12 months prior to your wedding date. Some Manufacturers can take up to 8 months to deliver your gown.

When do bridesmaid dresses need to be ordered? Size ranges?
Depending on the manufacturer, bridesmaid dresses can take up to 14-19 weeks to be delivered to us. In-store samples range from size 6 to 24. Again, this can vary from time to time. Many of the manufacturers charge an upcharge of $25 for plus sizes (size 18 and up)
