May I bring friends when I try on gowns?
Trying on wedding gowns can be intimidating, especially if you have opinionated guests. Very often, we find friends focusing on what they like, not what the bride likes. They often disregard your budget, your wedding location and may not even know what your groom prefers. During your initial visit, we suggest that you bring your mom, your sister or a close friend. Let your professional stylist help you select styles that look great on your figure and that fit your sense of style and budget. On your second visit after you have selected a few wedding dresses, then invite your friends to help in the final decision.
What if I need a wedding gown in less than four months?
Often our designers can accommodate a rush order for an additional fee. Be upfront with your stylist about your timing, and she will work with you to find the best solution to have your gown ready in time for your big day. Sometimes, the resolution may be to purchase a sample gown.

How does my bridesmaid know what size to order?
We suggest all bridesmaids have their measurements professionally taken to ensure the closest accuracy. Once measurements are taken, they are compared to the designer's size chart and the size is chosen to fulfill the largest measurement.  Typically a size or two larger than your normal dress size will be ordered as most gowns are cut on a smaller pattern.
