How long will it take to get my dress?
9 to 12 months is not too early to start. We recommend you order your gown as soon as you have made your choice. Some of our designers can accommodate a 2-4 week order time where necessary. Many brides leave our store with their gown straight off the rack.
Do you sell off-the-rack or are all your gowns special ordered?
We do both.
How do you choose your collections and what designers do you carry?
We look for fashion forward styles showcasing current and upcoming trends to satisfy brides searching for an up-to-the minute, quality gown.
Since our background is in design and couture craftsmanship, we have a keen eye for quality and we pay close attention to the fabric and workmanship in the designers we carry. You can rest assured in the quality of the gown you purchase.
We work with designers who have exemplary customer service and reputation. Our customer is their customer, and we need to know we can count on them in every respect.
We are authorized to carry gowns by over a dozen designers. Our collections change from time to time, so please contact us if you are looking for a specific designer.
Do you have informal gowns suitable for a beach or second wedding?
Absolutely! Our gowns range from simple and informal to intricate and beaded. Come in and browse our collections or call for an appointment and let us put our expertise to work for you.
I’d like my wedding gown to be a design that no one else has. Is that possible?
It is possible for you to have a gown that no one else has, since all our designers customize their gowns. Just talk to us during your appointment and we’ll see what we can do!
I’ve tried a gown in your store that I’ve also found new, online for a much lower price. What should I do?
None of our designers make their gowns available for online purchase, so unless it is a used, pre-owned gown, it is most likely a counterfeit. Our designers spend hundreds of hours creating patterns for their gowns, and assembling the luscious fabrics and embellishments needed to create the gown you have tried in our store. We adhere to their pricing policies – we know what it takes to create a gown of these standards. Remember also to factor in the higher cost of alterations on a lower quality gown.
I’m a full figured woman – do you carry plus sizes?
Our in-store size range varies, since so many brides purchase off-rack. We can order a gown outside of sizes we have to try on, and also with custom measurements when needed. Please contact us for further information when making your appointment.
I’m just in town for a few days, but I love the gown you have in the window and I’d like to order it. Could you ship it to me when it comes in?
Yes, let us know, and we will ship it to you.
Do your gowns ever get discontinued?
Yes, they do sometimes get discontinued with little or no notice.
Do you carry bridesmaids dresses?
Yes, strictly by appointment.
Do you carry jewelry?
We design lovely necklaces, earrings, and bracelets from freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals perfect for the bride herself or as gifts for her bridesmaids.
Do you carry flower girl dresses?
We have a selection of flower girls from our Patricia Bee collection, and can also create custom flower girl dresses to match the bride, upon request.
I need a slip. Do you sell those?
Absolutely. We sell slips, veils, headpieces, furs, and other accessories.
I got married last year and did not buy my wedding gown from you. Where do you suggest I take it for cleaning or preservation?
We can take care of that for you with our specialist cleaning and preservations service. If you would like to bring the gown in to us, we will process it for cleaning and/or preservation and have it shipped back to you. Please contact us for a suitable time.
Do you do alterations?
Yes, we’re pleased to offer our specialist, in-house, alterations service to all brides, wherever they purchased their gown. Please call to schedule an appointment for your fitting.
