our store policies

Since your bridal appointment will be taking place in a private suite among your guests (we’ll have a separate area for male guests!), we recommend bringing/wearing undergarments that will allow you to feel comfortable getting in and out of dresses with those people. We are more than happy to provide a robe and undergarments for your comfort and modesty.

We'd love to have everyone you love there for you, but our suites will only comfortably accommodate 3-4 guests in addition to the bride. Want to bring an extra guest? Just give us a head's up so we can try to make room for everyone! Additional guests are much easier for us to accommodate Monday through Friday! Have a really large group? Maybe one of our "Salon is Yours" appointments might be best! Also, although we are huge fans of children and babies, we do recommend trying to get a sitter since our environment isn't ideal for the little ones. For this reason, we ask that whenever possible, all guests be over the age of 18. Lastly, if you plan to have any men at your appointment, like your dad or your man-of-honor, that's great- we'll be sure to have a separate area for them to sit outside of where you will be changing.

Our bridal gowns range in price from $1,500-$8,000+ and we take a deposit at the time of purchase. Mother-of-the-Wedding gowns and dresses range in price from $400-$1,200+ and Bridesmaid dresses range in price from $200-$400+. For both Mother-of-the-Wedding and Bridesmaid purchases, we ask for payment in full at the time of purchase. Suit and Tux rentals start around $249 and we take a deposit at the time of booking your rental. We accept all major credit cards, cash, and checks. (Please note: We do not accept checks when merchandise is leaving the shop.) Think about notifying your bank about your visit here- we often experience customer credit cards declining since our shop is outside of their typical spending pattern. To save time at check-out, it’s best for your bank or credit card holder to know in advance of the potential charge you’ll be putting on your card.

Like many industries, the bridal world has been impacted by shipping delays in 2022. Due to this, we want to be transparent that lead times from all designers are slightly longer than in years past. Please refer to the estimates for each wedding attire category below:

Bridal: Order 9-12 months in advance of wedding date, considering 2-3 months for alterations

Bridesmaids: Order 6-8 months in advance of wedding date, considering 1-2 months for alterations

Mother of the Wedding: Order 6-8 months in advance of wedding date, considering 1-2 months for alterations

Suit & Tux: As we are primarily a rental service, this department has not been affected by elongated lead times.

 

Exact lead times or garment ETA's are designer specific, so your stylist will be able to guide you through all of the designers available for your wear date.

 

We have alternate options if you’re shopping inside of the above timelines, too. Your stylist will only pull in options that can be delivered in a comfortable timeframe for you, including options directly from our collection.

Don’t stress about parking- we have plenty and it’s free! But you may want to be careful when it comes to traffic, particularly in the summer and leaf-peeping months. We’re a bit of a destination here on the seacoast, which sometimes means lots of traffic, but also means it’s gorgeous here with lots of great things to do and places to visit around your appointment!

We ask for 48 hours notice on any cancellations, otherwise you might incur a cancellation fee, so please communicate with us ASAP if you can’t attend! And if time gets away from you, just give us a call- we'll always do our best to help you out because we know that sometimes there are extenuating circumstances to consider. This is especially true for the winter months and inclement weather. While it’s always our intention to remain open for any customers who would like to come see us, we also want everyone- customers and employees alike- to be safe! We ask that you be mindful of any upcoming inclement weather and communicate with us as soon as possible if your plans need to change. And rest assured that if we choose to close the shop due to an impending storm, you will be contacted to reschedule your appointment.

Apart from our upgraded appointments, we try to avoid having any outside food or drink in the shop because we want to be as careful as possible with our beautiful (and delicate) merchandise. Water is fine to bring, of course. And if you're looking to pop some bubbly to celebrate afterwards, we have lots of recommendations for local places to do so.
