My friends say I should try on everything, is that a good idea?

From our experience with working with brides for over 30 years, finding the gown of your dreams is an unparalleled experience. So when you start your search it is okay to try on different styles but you should have a realistic idea of your price range and you should not try on gowns that do not represent who you are. This will insure that when you purchase your wedding dress you will be thrilled with your choice.

 What if I like a gown by one of the designers that your salon carries but you do not have it in your wedding gown collection?

Many of our designers will let us borrow a gown that we may not carry in our salon or have sold from our  wedding collection.  There is a charge for this service .  Please call for details, (405) 752-0029.

Will my dress be custom fit to my body?

No.  You will select a size based on your body measurements according to the designers standard  size chart provided when you are ready to  place your order on the gown you have selected.  If you fall in-between sizes, always order the larger size.  It is easier to take a gown in rather than let it out.  Alterations may be necessary after you receive your gown and are an additional charge.


How long does it take to order a wedding gown?

Special order designer gowns take approximately 4 to 5 months to arrive in our salon. We strongly recommend our brides to have their gowns 3 months prior to their wedding date. This will ensure that there is enough time for custom fittings and bridal portraits. Therefore, your wedding gown should be purchased 7 to 12 months prior to your wedding.


What if I need a gown in less than 4 months?

Most designers will make a gown quickly. However, they will charge a rush fee. We also have gowns from our wedding collection that can be purchased immediately.


May I bring my friends when I try on the gowns?

Trying on wedding gowns can be intimidating, especially if you have opinionated guests. Very often, we find friends focus on what they like, not what the bride likes. They often disregard your budget. During your initial visit, we suggest that you bring your mom, your sister or a close friend. A professional stylist will help you select styles that look great on your figure and that fit your sense of style and price range. After you have selected and purchased your gown, then invite your friends to view your choice. If you would like to bring more than 2 or 3 guests please consider a Blue Carpet Appointment.


What is the next step after I my gown arrives?

It is important after you are notified that you make an appointment within 7 days after the arrival of your gown.  These appointments are made Monday thru Friday ONLY…we Do Not Allow gown Try On’s on Saturdays.  If you are planning to use our seamstress she needs 8 weeks from start to finish so if your wedding date is close please make your try on appointment at the same time as your fitting appointment with our seamstress.


Do you provide alterations?

Yes, we have in house seamstresses. There is an additional charge that is determined by the seamstress at the time of your custom fitting.
