Bridal FAQs

Frequently Asked QuestionsCan I bring a camera with me to look at gowns?
The designers we carry in the store request that no pictures are taken until the dress is purchased. From our experience, pictures taken in store do not do you or the gown justice plus the dresses that wow you first will be the ones you remember perfectly in your head!

What size samples do you have at the salon?
The Perfect Bride carries a good size range of sample gowns.

What does The Perfect Bride offer in the way of alterations?
The Perfect Bride can handle any of your alteration needs from Brides to Moms, Bridesmaids to flower girls. The alterations charges are determined by what needs to be done.  You are more than welcome to book an appointment to get an estimate on any alterations you need.  Also, we have great recommendations on seamstresses if you choose to get your dress altered elsewhere.

Should I bring anything with me to The Perfect Bride?
For those of you with lots of ideas it is always nice for the consultants to see pictures of what you have in your head. If you feel more comfortable in your own strapless bra and shoes, feel free to bring them with you as well. We also recommend only inviting 2 people to come with you to your appointment. Maybe your Mom and most trusted bridesmaid.

Should I schedule an appointment to come shopping?
The Perfect Bride will always recommend having an appointment to look at gowns, especially on the weekends. During the week it is fine to walk-in but please be patient as the ladies with appointments do get priority to consultants and fitting rooms.

When is the best time to start the search for the Perfect Gown?
Begin as soon as you get engaged by looking at magazines and searching on the net. We understand that engagements vary in time but if you have the time, plan on ordering your dress a year to 8 months before your big day! Bridesmaid dresses and mother dresses vary in order time, we recommend 5 months for these dresses.

What payment methods do you accept?
We accept cash, checks and most major credit cards

Renee was absolutely wonderful! I would not have imagines a more pleasant experience.  She was transparent, honest, caring, kind, and knowledgeable. She made me feel like the most important person in the world and I actually enjoyed trying on dresses! I'm really looking forward to my dress coming in so that I can come back to visit the shop.  Thank you!  ~Erica R
