Your Perfect Dress. Your Perfect Fit.

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 $800 – $2200 – with most being priced around $1500. 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.

We also have an alterations department within the building that offers extremely talented bridal industry tailors. They work by appointment and recommend that brides make their appointments well in advance as appointments are limited.
