FAQ

Do you require an appointment?

Yes! We want to make sure that every bride has our upmost attention. During your appointment you will work with your very own consultant who will be with you every step of the way! Because of this, we keep our front doors locked. We don’t want anyone interrupting our brides during this experience. You will be able to browse all of our collections freely and without having to shop over other people. 

You can book your appointment online or call 919-781-2898 (Raleigh) or 828-364-6558 (Asheville).

When should I book an appointment?

We recommend that you book your appointment with us about 2-3 weeks ahead of time. However, we can always accommodate a weekday appointment within the same week. Same day appointments are options during the week as well!

If your desired date is already booked, request to be put on the waiting list! Appointments do open up from time to time!

What sizes are your sample gowns?

Most of our gowns range between sizes 10-14. Bridal gowns run 2 sizes smaller than regular clothing. So, if you’re a size 8 in normal clothing, you can expect to be a size 12 in bridal. We also have a range of gowns from size 16-30 with our newest addition, Modeca Curves.

How far in advance do I need to purchase my gown?

We recommend you buy your dress at least 6 months before your big day. Ideally, most brides give themselves a timeline of purchasing 10 months out. This allows time for alterations which is usually 2-3 months. 

In a hurry? That’s alright! Our designers offer rush options for additional fees.

 How long do appointments take?

60-90 minutes.

 Who should come to my appointment?

We recommend a group of no more than 4 people. It’s always good to limit your party to a small group of people who will be supportive and focused on the task at hand, which is finding your dream dress! We never recommend it but if you insist on bringing a child to your appointment, they must be accompanied at all times. 

How long before my wedding do I need to purchase my bridal gown?

The typical time to purchase a wedding gown is 8-12 months prior to the wedding. It is also important to keep in mind that bridal gowns do not fit perfectly when they’re ordered, and 2-3 months should be allowed for the alterations process.

Do you do alterations?

We have a preferred vendor list of amazing seamstresses we work with. One of which can do work in our boutique!
