What is the alterations timeline for bridesmaid and flower girl dresses?
We recommend calling a seamstress at least 4 months before your wear date for your initial appointment. Please allow 6-8 weeks before your event date for your first fitting.
What if I need my dress right away?
We recommend ordering your bridal gown 9 -12 months before your wedding date. This is the ideal timeframe, however, we understand every bride is different and shops under various circumstances. We have over 300 bridal samples that range in price from approximately $1100 – $3000 with most being priced around $1200- $1800. We are able to sell select samples off of the showroom floor for those brides needing their dress sooner than the designer’s ship date and rush shipping is usually an option as well.
At The Sample Studio in Celina we are able to sell older samples from our showroom floor at discounted prices for those brides needing their dress sooner than the designer’s ship date or those looking to stay in the $300-$1000 price range.
What if I just found out I am expecting and already ordered my dress?
Please call and consult with a seamstress right away. We will work with them to find a resolution and make sure you look perfect for your event date!
