What should I expect during my appointment?

Each bridal appointment is approximately 90 minutes. During this time, our bridal consultants take time to get to know the bride and discuss her wedding event in order to facilitate the selection of bridal looks that will complement the style of the occasion. Our brides are welcome to bring up to 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!”

How do I prepare for my appointment?

We ask that you prepare for your appointment by carrying with you any undergarments, shoes, and/or accessories that you wish to consider as part of your bridal look on the day of your wedding. 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 offer for sale and to try on some coordinating accessories including veils, head pieces and accessories, and jewelry that you may wish to consider purchasing with a gown. We encourage our brides to ask their bridal consultant for more information regarding bridal accessories.

We are pleased to provide these services to our clients on an ongoing basis even after the wedding event has passed.
