We are a bridesmaids shop. We sell bridesmaids, flower girl and junior bridesmaids dresses. We can also order dresses for mother of the bride or groom and other formal events such as dances and balls.
Do you sell the dresses off the rack?
No. We have a shop full of samples, and we order the dress you want in the color and size you want. All of our dresses take up to 14 weeks to arrive in our shop after they have been ordered.
Can I choose different dresses for each girl? What about different colors?
Yes! You can choose whatever you want! Each girl can have a different color or style, it is up to you. It is your wedding!
What does it mean to "book?"
When you have decided on a final dress (or dresses!) there is paperwork to fill out so that we know exactly what you want. Once you fill out the paperwork, we can start fitting your bridesmaids and accepting payments. You can come in and fill out the paperwork, or you can fill it out online. We will determine a due date, and we will keep you updated as the date approaches so that we can order the dresses in enough time to get here before your wedding.
How do you get their size?
If your bridesmaids are available to come in, we have sizing samples in our store for them to try on. We have every size by every company. We do not have your exact dress, but we have chosen simple dresses that give a good idea of the basic fit of each company. The bridesmaids can come in, we will take their measurements, and they will be able to try on the sample dresses in the size they may need. The dresses are not made to their measurements, they will still need to choose a standard size. Although we will advise the bridesmaids on the fit, their size choice is their decision. We will not choose a size for them.
If a bridesmaid cannot come in, we can send them an email sizing form. We need the size in some form of writing, so we need them to email it.. Again, we cannot choose a size for them, so they need to look at the sizing chart to determine the size they want. See the "What do I do if my bridesmaids are out of town..." question below.
When do you order the dresses?
We order dresses from the manufacturer once we have a size and payment from every bridesmaid.
How do they pay?
There are a few options. They can pay in store or call in a payment. You will have the option of letting your bridesmaids pay the full amount or a 60% deposit. The deposit option requires that you put down a credit card number to "secure" the dresses. We will not charge the credit card without you knowing.
What do I do if my bridesmaids are out of town?
We try to make it easy for out of town bridesmaids to order from us. They can email or send us a size. We ask that your bridesmaids pick their own size. We will not pick their size for them.
If they live out of town, do they need to get measured somewhere local to them?
It is best to take measurements in bra and panties and use the measurements to choose a size. So, yes. It would be great for them to get measured! However, we cannot pick a size for them based on their measurements, so they need to look at the sizing chart for the company you have chosen to choose the correct size. Some dresses run small, so it is VERY important that they do not just guess based on their normal street size!
We can send them an email sizing chart. We need the size in some form of writing, so we need them to email it or send it with their online payment instead of calling it in.
What happens when the dresses come in?
When the dresses arrive at our store, we call (and/ or email) YOU, the bride. It is your responsibility to tell the girls their dresses have arrived. We are sorry we cannot call your bridesmaids, but we have so many, we would be on the phone all day!
What about junior bridesmaids or flower girl dresses?
We carry those too! Just remember that they also take up to 14 weeks to arrive.
Do you carry Mother of the Bride/ Groom dresses?
We do not carry specific "Mother of the Bride" lines. However, many of our dresses are appropriate for Mother of the Bride/Groom dresses. As with all of our dresses, these also take up to 14 weeks to arrive in the store.
One last question ... Maternity?
We carry those too! Some of our companies (B2/Belsoie, Dessy, and Christina Wu) make their own line of maternity dresses that are very similar to their standard bridesmaid styles. Other styles (like empire waist styles) can be easily altered to fit the mom-to-be.
