You are allowed six guests with you when you are here for your bridal or bridesmaid appointment. We cannot allow more than six guests on Saturdays and Sundays due to our space limit for each of our salespeople.

Preferably you should purchase your accessories when you select your wedding gown. Our accessories take approximately 12-16 weeks, though in some cases, rush fees are available for earlier delivery times.

A trunk show is where we feature a designer’s new collection that is not in stores yet. Typically, these new gowns will only be in our store for a weekend, Friday through Sunday. Then they are shipped back out to another store for the following weekend. In some cases, brides get the privilege of working closely with the designer, making your experience even more unforgettable.
