  • What should I expect during my appointment?
    Miss Bride To Be Bridal offers BRIDAL consultation appointments, MOTHER OF THE BRIDE/GROOM and BRIDESMAIDS consultation appointments. We also offer SAMPLE SALE appointments by request and based on availability. Bridal Consultation appointments are approximately 90 minutes. During this time, our bridal stylists take time to get to know the bride and discuss her wedding in order to facilitate the selection of bridal looks that will complement her vision. Our brides are welcome to bring up to four (4) guests that can help with selection and purchasing decisions. We offer an additional 15 minutes of champagne toast to those brides that say, “yes to the dress!” Mother of the Bride/Groom and Bridesmaids appointments are approximately 60 minutes and limited to six (6) guests. Our stylists work directly with each client to determine the style, color, and customization that will work to create a cohesive look for the entire bridal party. We strongly encourage that the bride and/or decision maker is present to make the most of the appointment. Color swatches are available in order to facilitate choosing the perfect color for a specific individual or the group. Styles can also be customized for each individual or to accommodate different looks in the same color family for each group member. We also offer custom sizing based on measurements taken in-store to eliminate the need for additional alterations. Sample Sale appointments are approximately 45 minutes and are limited to trying on sample sale gowns ONLY. Our sample sale appointments are generally walk-in, but can also be scheduled based on availability. Sample sale brides are welcome to bring up to two (2) guests and can try on any of our sample sale dresses during the allotted time. Our staff are available to assist during this process.
  • How do I prepare for my appointment?
    We ask that you prepare for your appointment by bringing any undergarments, shoes, and/or accessories that you wish to consider as part of your look. Our boutique does carry a modest selection of undergarments and shoes to borrow on the day of your consultation in the event these items are forgotten during your appointment. In addition, we do carry a wonderful collection of coordinating accessories including veils, head pieces and accessories, and jewelry to consider for purchase. We encourage our clients to ask their stylist for more information regarding our accessories.
  • What sizes do you carry?
    For consultations, our boutique typically carries standard sample sizes from 12 to 18 to try on; however, our collection of wedding gowns, as well as formal and special occasion gowns, to order, generally range in sizing from 0-28 with some of our lines carrying sizing up to size 30. For brides requiring sizes larger than 30, we are able to request additional coordinating fabrics from our factory partners to facilitate alterations. Additional fees apply to extended fabric orders.
  • What is your return policy?
    The majority of gowns we sell are either made to order or special (custom) order; therefore, all sales are final. We are unable to accept any returns or exchanges once an order has been placed. All of our sample sale and floor sample gowns sold are also final sale.

Most of our collections also offer rush delivery options when standard delivery times are unable to meet wedding planning deadlines. Rush deliveries range by designer from 6-12 weeks and additional fees apply. The average delivery time for formal and special occasion gowns are 12-16 weeks. Delivery times are confirmed at the time the order is placed. Rush deliveries range from 6-8 weeks and additional fees apply.
