FAQs

 

What is the price range of your gowns?
The majority of our gowns fall within the $1,000-$3,000 range.  Should your budget be less than $1,000 please keep in mind that we will likely only be able to show you sample stock pieces you can purchase off the rack.

Do I need an appointment?
No.  We do not require an appointment and walk-ins are accepted.  If you would like to book an appointment visit us online on our Facebook or by call 803-781-9697.  Please keep in mind that weekend and evening appointments tend to book up quickly.

How long are your bridal appointments?
The standard bridal appointment is one hour.

What sizes are your samples?
We provide a variety of samples in bridal regular as well as plus size for our brides to try on.  Our sizes range from 6-26 and bridal gowns run smaller than street sizes,  so brides should expect to go up around 2-3 sizes from what they typically wear.  We also do not use clips to help preserve the condition of our samples since we do sell our samples out of stock.

What should I bring to my bridal appointment?
We would suggest bringing the proper undergarments (like nude colored underwear and a strapless bra), no more than 3 trusted family members or friends, a smile and an open mind!  You may also find it useful to come prepared with a few pictures to show your bridal consultant what you’re looking for.

Should I bring shoes?
Shoes are provided in a variety of sizes to help you visualize the full effect of the gown.  Should you feel more comfortable bringing your own, you are more than welcome to.

What is the timeline like for ordering a gown?
Gowns typically take between 6-8 months from the moment your order is placed until it arrives in our salon, depending on the designer.

Do you offer in house alterations?
Yes!  We do offer alterations on all gowns purchased here, whether they were ordered or purchased out of stock.   We no longer do alterations on Thursdays, our alterations are offered on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings.

What do I bring to my alterations appointment?
We would suggest bringing any undergarments you hope to be wearing the day of your wedding, any accessories you would like to try on with your gown and, most importantly, your wedding shoes.  We are unable to proceed with your alterations appointment if you forget your shoes, as the seamstress will not be able to complete your hem, and will have to reschedule your appointment.  Please remember to continue to bring your shoes to every alterations appointment.

Do you provide cleaning and preservation services?
Yes, we do!  We recommend cleaning and preserving your gown as soon after the event as possible.  Please contact the salon for more information.

May we bring a bottle of wine or champagne to celebrate?
To avoid spills and maintain the integrity of our samples, we ask that you do not bring in outside beverages.  We are happy to provide our guests with water and highly suggest celebrating the purchase of your gown with loved ones after leaving the salon.

Do you sell bridesmaids gowns as well?
Yes.  We do cater to all the styling needs of the bride including bridesmaids.
