We strive to make sure your experience with us is convenient, timely and enjoyable. Every measure will be taken to ensure your comfort and to provide a high level of service in our boutique.
So you know what to expect during the upcoming months, we've gathered answers to the most frequently asked questions by our brides. If you have any additional concerns, please contact us.
It is best to start looking for gowns at least 9 to 12 months prior to your wedding date. The majority of our brides begin looking and researching 1 year ahead. That allows you enough time to narrow down your selection and order the gown of your dreams. Don't let the time bracket worry you because even if you do not have that much time there are a few different ways that The Wedding Boutique can accommodate you. We have sample gowns off the rack and there are some opportunities to fill rush orders for you. It can take anywhere from 6 to 9 months to produce a made to order wedding gown. Yet, The Wedding Boutique can accommodate you with a sample gown or rush orders. Occasionally we will fill rush orders, but an extra fee will be charged for this service.
