Before you begin dress shopping, you should have your date selected and wedding venue booked. We recommend that you begin dress shopping 10-12 months in advance of your wedding date. You should purchase your dress no less than 6 months before your wedding date. If your wedding is 6-10 months away, we offer rush fee options.
Yes. Appointments are required and can be made by calling the Salon at (561) 510-2020 or through our online booking system. We are an intimate boutique and specialize in creating a unique and personalized experience for our brides which requires preparation in advance. Therefore, these appointments are reserved for those brides who are ready to purchase a gown.
No, we do not require a fee to reserve an appointment.
Appointments are scheduled for 1.5 hours, which allows your dedicated consultant enough time to discuss your style preferences, wedding details and to show you our gown collection.
Our salons can comfortably accommodate you and up to 5 of your guests. We love the idea of you being surrounded by your friends and family during this special moment, however, it is recommended that you limit your guests to close family members and friends. Sometimes, too many opinions can be overwhelming.
Our gowns range from $4,000 to $18,000, with the majority of the gowns priced between $8,000 to $12,000. It is important to determine your budget prior to your appointment. Our consultants will work with you to stay within your budget. We encourage you to refer to our designer pages for additional information.
We recommend bringing pictures of wedding dresses and styles you would like to try on. You should also bring nude undergarments such as undies, Spanx, pasties or a strapless bra for the best experience. We have a selection of bridal shoes available for you to try on or, if you have already purchased your wedding shoes, please feel free to bring them with you.
Yes. As your dress was ordered based on your largest measurement, every dress requires some type of alteration to ensure the perfect fit to your body.
Yes. Our couture Atelier offers alterations services for an additional fee. The fitting cost is determined by the style of the gown and the amount of alterations needed.
"Made to order" means that your gown will be made in the size closest to your measurements taken at the time of your appointment, including any customization options you may have requested. You should still anticipate additional alterations which may require up to 2 to 3 fittings to ensure your gown’s perfect fit.
Once you’ve selected your perfect gown, one of our seamstresses will take your measurements to ensure your dress will be made as close as possible to your size. You will be notified by your consultant when the dress arrives, and you will schedule your first fitting. You should expect between 2 to 3 fittings. Once the alterations are complete,our seamstress will inspect the gown for any final tweaks and then prepare it for your pick up about a week or two before your wedding.
A designer trunk show is a special weekend-long event that showcases seasonal pieces and best sellers of a particular designer. The designer or a representative is usually in attendance, allowing the bride the opportunity to work directly with the designer to customize her gown. Trunk shows are recommended for those brides who have shopped around and are interested in a particular designer.
As is the custom in the industry, we carry one sample of each dress, usually in either a size 8 or 10. Sizing varies with each designer. If the gowns are too big or small for you, we will adjust it to give you a better idea of how your size will fit.
We accept American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa, as well as cash and personal checks. (Please note, personal checks are accepted for deposit, not final payment.) We require a 60% deposit at the time you order your dress. We require the balance when you arrive for your first fitting.
