DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT?
Yes! Our boutique hours are by appointment only to make your experience the very best! Each bridal appointment is 2 hours, allowing plenty of time to find THE DRESS while enjoying the company of your loved ones. We also offer 1 hour accessory appointments. Please note our gowns range from $2,000 - $7,000 with most between $2,500 - $4,000.
DO YOU HAVE MY SIZE?
The dresses in our boutique are all samples sizes. They cannot be bought off the rack. The majority of our samples are sizes 10-12. Please note many wedding dresses do run small. However if you still think you will need a larger size, we will work with our designers to ensure we have some stunning options for you to try on when you arrive for your appointment!
WHEN SHOULD I ORDER MY DRESS?
Wedding dresses take anywhere from 4 - 6 months to make depending on the designer. We recommend you begin looking for THE DRESS a minimum of 8 months before your wedding to allow plenty of time for alterations. If you are on a tighter deadline, Elle James will do our very best to get your gown here sooner, but please note this will require an additional fee.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?
We recommend coming to your appointment with your hair and makeup looking it's best, so that you feel the very best about yourself when searching for your dress! Also, please bring any under garments you plan to wear along with your wedding shoes. Don't have your shoes yet? No worries. We have a beautiful selection of Badgley Mischka shoes. You will want to make sure you have your wedding shoes for your alterations appointment.
I ALREADY HAVE A DRESS. CAN I COME TRY ON ACCESSORIES?
Duh! We would love to help you accessorize your wedding dress for the big day! You are more than welcome to bring your dress in and try it on to make sure the veil and jewelry you select with us looks exactly how you envisioned for your wedding day. When requesting your appointment, select "accessories appointment" and we will reserve one hour for you to find the perfect pieces.
