Frequently Asked Question

What are trunk shows?
Our boutique carries a curated collection of dresses from each of our designers. A trunk show is when a designer sends in an extended version of their collection, including their newest line. If you know you love a specific designer, a trunk show is a perfect time to see more of their designs. Trunk show appointments tend to book fast, so schedule your appointment as soon as you can.

Our collection ranges in price from $2,500 to $8,000 with our opening price point between $2,500 – $3,500. Please keep in mind that our selection of gowns under $2,500 is limited – a budget of $2,800 to $3,500 will guarantee a wider variety of styles and silhouettes for you to try on.
What sample sizes do you carry?
Our sample sizes range from 6-18, with the average being a size 10. We work hard to accommodate all brides, so if you have a concern about sizing before your appointment, please don’t hesitate to call or email us.

What is the cancellation policy?
Since we are by appointment only, we kindly ask that you give us at least 48 hours’ notice if you need to cancel or reschedule. There will be a $50 charge for any appointment cancellation under 48 hours' or no-show. This is done as a courtesy to our staff and other brides. We appreciate your understanding.

How many people should I bring?
Wedding dress shopping is exciting, but it can become overwhelming if you have to consider a lot of opinions. We recommend bringing 2-4 people whose opinions you value most and who know your personal style best. Keeping your entourage small will help to keep the focus on you. However, due to Covid we are limited to only 3 guest and the bride. If you wish to bring more than 6 guests, please consider a VIP Private Appointment where up to 10 guest are permitted.

What should I bring to my appointment?
The only thing we recommend is skin toned undergarments and if you can, a shoe that represents what you may wear on your wedding day. Wearing shape wear or a comfortable bra is also fine.

Do you offer alterations?
We offer in-house alterations with our expert seamstress. We believe that having your dress fit and finished just for you is one of the most important steps in the wedding dress process. The alterations needed vary from bride to bride and from gown to gown, and alterations costs are not included in the price of your wedding gown. If you are unable to have your alterations done at our Atelier, we have a network of seamstresses we can recommend.
