Frequently Asked Questions

 

WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS OF OPERATION?

 

WE ARE OPEN BY APPOINTMENTS ONLY. APPOINTMENTS ARE AVAILABLE TUESDAY - SATURDAY. APPOINTMENTS CAN BE SCHEDULED EITHER BY CALLING, EMAIL, OR THROUGH OUR WEBSITE . WANT TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT TIME THAT'S NOT SHOWING AVAILABLE? REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT AND WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO ACCOMMODATE YOUR REQUEST! WE REQUIRE APPOINTMENTS TO ENSURE THAT EACH CUSTOMER IS GIVEN PERSONAL ATTENTION WITH A CONSULTANT THAT CAN HELP THEM. WE DO OUR BEST TO SCHEDULE NO MORE THAN 2 APPOINTMENTS AT A TIME. SOMETIMES APPOINTMENTS OVERLAP, RUN OVER, SHOW UP SUPER EARLY, AND WALK-INS HAPPEN, BUT WE PROMISE TO DO OUR BEST TO ACCOMMODATE EVERYONE IN A TIMELY MANNER.

 

 

WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?

 

RIGHT ON TIME! WE UNFORTUNATELY DON'T HAVE A WAITING AREA SINCE WE ARE A SMALL STORE. IF YOU ARRIVE EARLY, WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SEE YOU UNTIL YOUR APPOINTMENT TIME. 

 

 

WHERE IS PARKING?

 

PARKING IS LOCATED IN THE IMPERIAL CLEANERS PARKING LOT! IT'S RIGHT ADJACENT TO US! YOU ARE WELCOME TO PARK IN ANY OF THE SPOTS IN THAT LOT. WE ARE LOCATED IN THE MALL THAT'S BETWEEN THE CLEANERS AND THE BANK.

 

 

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY BRIDAL APPOINTMENT?

 

YOU WILL BE PAIRED UP WITH AT LEAST ONE CONSULTANT WHO WILL LISTEN AND HELP YOU TO TRY TO FIND THE GOWN OF YOUR DREAMS. APPOINTMENTS CAN BE BLOCKED FOR EITHER AN HOUR OR AN HOUR AND A HALF. BE SURE TO TO BRING ANY UNDERGARMENTS AND THE SIZE HEEL SHOE THAT YOU PLAN ON WEARING AT THE WEDDING!

 

 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A DRESS IN?

 

BRIDAL GOWN DELIVERY VARIES BY EACH DESIGNER! WE RECOMMEND STARTING TO LOOK 8 MONTHS BEFORE THE BIG DAY! MOST BRANDS TYPICALLY TAKE AROUND 5 MONTHS FOR THE DRESSES TO ARRIVE, AND YOU WANT TO LEAVE PLENTY OF TIME FOR ALTERATIONS!  IF YOU NEED TO GET SOMETHING IN SOONER, LET US KNOW! SOME OF OUR DESIGNERS KEEP STOCK THAT WE CAN GET IN QUICKLY. THERE ARE RUSH OPTIONS, AND WE HAVE A GREAT SELECTION OF SAMPLE SALE GOWNS THAT ARE AVAILABLE!

 

 

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN I BRING WITH ME TO MY APPOINTMENT?

 

BECAUSE OF OUR SMALL SPACE, WE RECOMMEND NO MORE THAN 4. IF YOU HAVE A LARGER PARTY THAN 4  THAT YOU WANT TO BRING, JUST GIVE US A HEADS UP FIRST, AND WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE ENOUGH SEATS SET UP FOR EVERYONE! IF YOU ARE SCHEDULING DURING A TRUNK SHOW OR EVENT, WE ASK THAT YOU LIMIT YOUR PARTIES.

 

 

 

WHAT'S YOUR PRICE RANGE?

 

ORDERED DRESSES WILL RANGE $1000 - $2200 AND OUR SAMPLE SALE WILL ALL BE UNDER $1000! BE SURE TO CHECK OUT OUR DESIGNER PAGES TO SEE THE PRICE RANGE OF EACH LINE!

 

 

 

DO I NEED TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT TO PICK SOMETHING UP?

 

YES! SINCE WE ARE BY APPOINTMENTS, WE MAY NOT ALWAYS BE THERE WHEN YOU STOP BY. JUST SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT, AND WE WILL MAKE SURE TO HAVE SOMEONE THAT WILL BE IN STORE FOR YOU!

 

 

DO YOU OFFER IN-HOUSE ALTERATIONS?

 

WE DON'T HAVE AN IN-HOUSE SEAMSTRESS, BUT WE DO HAVE SOME AMAZING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR TALENTED SEAMSTRESSES IN BIRMINGHAM THAT OUR BRIDES HAVE USED! ALTERATIONS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF YOUR ORDER, AND SINCE EVERYTHING IS MADE TO DESIGNER SIZE CHARTS (NOT YOUR MEASUREMENTS), MOST DRESSES REQUIRE ALTERATIONS TO ACHIEVE THE PERFECT FIT!

 

 

 

WHAT'S YOUR SIZE RANGE OF DRESSES?

 

WE TRY TO KEEP A WIDE VARIETY OF SIZES IN STORE, AND EACH DRESS IN STORE IS LABELED WITH THE SIZE RANGE THAT IT CAN BE ORDERED IN. OUR SAMPLES WILL RANGE FROM 8-24, BUT WE ARE ALWAYS EXPANDING OUR COLLECTION! IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SIZE OF A SPECIFIC DRESS, GIVE US A CALL AND WE CAN TELL YOU THE SIZE OF OUR STORE SAMPLE. VIEW OUR GOWNS THAT ARE SIZES 18 - 28 HERE!

 

 

DO YOU OFFER SALES AND DISCOUNTS?

 

BE SURE TO CHECK OUT OUR UPCOMING EVENTS PAGE TO SEE WHAT'S GOING IN STORE! WE OFFER DIFFERENT TRUNK SHOWS WHERE SPECIFIC DESIGNERS WILL BE DISCOUNTED 10% OFF AND OCCASIONALLY HAVE EXTRA PROMOTIONS ON OUR SAMPLE SALE!

 

 

DO YOU HAVE PROM AND PAGEANT DRESSES?

 

AT THE TIME, WE UNFORTUNATELY DO NOT. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT SOME OF THE AMAZING PLACES IN BIRMINGHAM THAT DO THOUGH!

 

 

DO YOU RENT DRESSES?

 

UNFORTUNATELY, WE ARE UNABLE TO. WE WISH THAT WE COULD FIND A WAY TO HELP MAKE THIS SERVICE AVAILABLE LOCALLY, BUT OUR SAMPLES ARE EXTREMELY DELICATE. WE DO RENT TUXEDOS THOUGH!

 

 

DO YOU BUY WEDDING DRESSES?

 

NO, WE DO NOT, BUT THERE ARE SOME GREAT LOCAL BUSINESSES THAT DO!
