We ask brides to bring no more than 3 guests in their entourage. Due to government guidelines regarding COVID-19, we ask that all guests maintain a 1-meter distance from each other during the appointment. Our boutique is spacious enough to allow for appropriate social distancing for yourself, 3 guests, and our bridal consultant. PPE must be worn at all times by everyone inside the boutique, and we ask that you sanitize before entering the boutique.
When should I make an appointment?
You can start shopping from the minute you've said yes! We understand that It is a big decision, so we recommend shopping no later than 8 months before your wedding date. if you have an imminent wedding date we can do a 4 month turn around but please be aware the manufacturer charges us additional fees to do rush orders. Your bridal gown is the most important dress any girl can wear and we want to help you get it right. We know that for some brides dress shopping can be a bit daunting, but we promise we will make you feel at ease and guide you step by step through the entire process.
