Do I need an appointment?
We appreciate appointments! But we are also always happy to help you whenever you want to stop in. With an appointment, we are able to send you some extra information (including a link to our online “Lookbook” so you can pre-shop our gowns)!
When should I order my wedding dress?
Styles in the bridal industry are always changing, so we encourage brides to purchase whenever they are sure they have found "the one" to limit the chances of their dream dress being discontinued. Because of ordering times and the time it takes for alterations, we suggest brides start looking at Vera’s for their gown 9+ months out from the big day. Though many brides choose to come much sooner!
Do you carry bridal gowns in my size?
Yes, we do! We know how important it is to try on styles that actually fit, so we carry gowns in every size from 2 to 32! Brides often tell us on how great our selection is for curvier brides. We have over 150 gorgeous plus size styles!
What is your price range for gowns?
We have gorgeous gowns in every price range from $700 to over $7000! Most of our gowns are between $1000-$2000. Just let your stylist know where you are comfortable and she will help you find the perfect gown!
Are brides allowed to look through the bridal gowns myself?
Yes, absolutely! You are always welcome to shop all of our gowns and choose which gowns you want to try on. You know your personal style best! But most brides prefer to have our experienced stylists select gowns based on what they describe they are looking for. Either way is perfectly fine with us!
How long are bridal appointments?
Bridal appointments are usually 2 hours, and on Saturdays, we have to stick pretty closely to that schedule. However, for most weekday appointments, we don’t limit our brides on their time! We have over 700 gowns to shop and we know it can takes a little longer to shop our extensive selection!
What should I bring with me to my appointment?
We have long-line bras and slips for anyone who would like to borrow one for the appointment. But you are more than welcome to bring whatever you are most comfortable in! Some brides find it helpful wear a strapless bra.
How long will it take for my dress to come in?
It can take 5-6 months for a bridal gown to arrive and bridesmaids’ and mothers’ dresses tend to take about 4-5 months. Don't have that much time? Some styles can be ordered with rush shipping (which takes about 12 weeks) and many brides prefer to select our showroom gowns as we sell most of the gowns that we have in house!
Do you do alterations?
We don't offer alterations on our gowns, but we have a long list of wonderful seamstresses (even in surrounding states) that our brides can use!
Are you open on Sunday?
Yes! But just for our Luxe Appointments. We are open Monday-Saturday for our regular appointments too!
Do you offer discounts on bridal gowns?
We are happy to say that we price all of our merchandise at the lowest price that the designers will allow, which is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. Which means we can't reduce our prices more, but many brides have told us that our non-discounted gowns are priced lower than other stores “reduced price”!
