Types of bridesmaids appointments

{please be courteous and aware of timeframes as we do book back-to-back appointments}

  • **highly recommended** Bridesmaids color + style selection appointment 60 min: The first step in bridesmaids selection. Come in and work with our bridesmaid specialist to get your desired look ready to go before your whole tribe comes in. Bring no more than 2 people. Weekday appointments are preferred.

  • Bridesmaids measure + order group appointment / dress is already selected: 60 min: Available ONLY if you've already completed your color + style selection appointment. You picked the dress and now your tribe just needs to be measured. Enjoy 60 minutes in the bridesmaids space to try on your selection and have everyone measured. Online registry will need to be completed prior to appointment.

  • Bridesmaids full appointment: select + measure + pay 90 min: for 1-5 maids (it is important that you tell us the definite number attending), You're starting from scratch and bringing your group of no more than 5 bridesmaids. Plan to browse + try on for 60 minutes and leave the final 30 minutes for measuring and checking out.

  • Bridesmaids Full Appointment: select + measure + pay 2 hr: for 6+ maids (it is important that you tell us the definite number attending), You're starting from scratch and bringing your group of no more than 6+ bridesmaids.

your size : help us, help you!

We do our absolute best to get you into the dress that is closest to your size. We DO NOT make money from alterations and want nothing more than a happy customer. Dresses are cut to order based off of each manufacturers’ size chart which can greatly vary between designers.

It costs less to take in than to let out, which is why we always recommend going up a size if between sizes.

ordering 7-9 months before event date

The bridesmaids adventure takes 8 months from start to finish….This is our tried and true rule of thumb, stress-reducing advice. Can you order in less time, YES, but we can guarantee added stress and anxiety. Most bridesmaids dresses take 3 months to produce and then 2-4 weeks to ship. The typical bridesmaids party takes 2 months to have all orders placed and confirmed which then puts you at the 6 month mark. Now, add 2 months for alterations and voila…there’s your 8 month adventure!

rush fees

We implement a mandatory rush for bridesmaids orders that are placed less than 5 months from the wedding date. This fee varies based on designer from $20 - $40 per dress. Our consultants are knowledgeable and are able to help you choose designers based on timeframes.

colors!

We recommend limiting colors to 1-2 for the best outcome as well as choosing a color that we have available in a full size dress for you to see. Pinterest is doing an amazing job of stressing out brides. We cannot guarantee your perfect Pinterest look unless we have the exact dresses + colors in stock for you to visualize. Sometimes it works…sometimes it doesn’t. Keep it simple, your girls will thank you for it too!
