Do you rent gowns?
All of our gowns are available for purchase only. We do however have accessories such as bolero jackets, fur shawls, and crinolines available for rental.
Are alterations always required or will my dress fit perfectly when I try it on for the first time?
We have become accustomed to alterations being required approximately 99% of the time. Gowns are ordered based on the nearest available size to your measurements. Measurements are taken at the bust, waist and hips and the size ordered is based on the largest measurement with tailoring required for the smaller measurements.
How many fittings are required?
Once you've purchased your gown and it has arrived at the boutique, you will require approximately four fittings with our seamstress (depending on the work needing to be done).
How long does it take to order a bridesmaids dress?
Most bridesmaids' dresses can be ordered in 12 to 14 weeks. Please allow extra time for the dresses to be fitted. Many companies will do rush cuts in less time for an extra charge. Sample dresses are available to try on in store from sizes 8-16. Otherwise, we can assess the style and cut your body type requires and based on measurement charts, order your size, style and color of your bridesmaid’s dress.
What are the alterations costs?
Alterations are individually based and priced, but range from as low as $20 to $250 depending on the work involved. Our bridal professionals can offer a quote before alterations are started.
