Due to the delicate nature of our merchandise, we ask that you please do not bring children to the gown fitting.

The average price of our bridal gowns is in the $2,000 range. We have a price point for everyone (which begins at $1,500 and goes up).
In addition to bridal gowns, we also carry veils, jewelry, bridal/evening shoes, flower girl dresses, evening bags, and hair jewelry. If there is a particular accessory that we don't carry we will try to accommodate your special requests.
To ensure the integrity of each gown, we sign contracts with our designers that do not allow for photographs to be taken before the gown is purchased. However, you are welcome to take as many photos of your gown once we have processed your credit card for your deposit.
