Yes, absolutely! Brides are always welcome in our stock rooms to look through all the gowns and make their own selections.
Oh yes! We have bridal gowns from size 2 to size 32. Brides compliment us on our plus-size selection because we have in stock over 80 different styles to try on in sizes 18 and up. And we also have gowns in size 2 and 4 for the petite bride. It's so wonderful when it hugs your every curve.
Saturday appointments are up to 2 hours. There is no time limit for weekday appointments.
You don't need to bring anything, but some brides find it helpful to bring a strapless bra.
Once we place the order, it takes about 5-6 months for a bridal gown to come in, and about 4-5 months for bridesmaids’ and mothers’ dresses. Some styles are available for RUSH delivery, which is usually about 10 weeks. If you need something quicker, we are always happy to sell gowns that are in stock.
Beware of shops that will "mark-up" their prices just to "mark-down" so that you think you are getting a discount! Vera's does not play that game. Our dresses are marked at the lowest price that the designers will allow, which is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. We do not discount our dresses, because of agreements with our designers that we will honor their pre-set prices. SO — if another shop offers discounts on their gowns, (1) they may be in violation of the price agreement set by the designer, or (2) they may raise the price and then offer you a “discount,” which really is not a lower price. Before you buy, compare what the price is after discounts are applied, and you'll probably find that Vera's "non-discounted" price is still lower.
No, sorry, we are open Monday through Saturday. (Note, we are open until 8pm on Tuesday and Wednesday.)
