What about alterations?
Alterations are NOT included in the price of the gown.
Alteration cost depend greatly on condition of the gown, sizing relative to your body, and time of year. We do offer alterations in-store through a third-party service, you can learn more about that here.
We prioritize our couples, but do accept outside dresses. We are able to give you rough quotes during your appointment, but ultimately during your appointment our talented seamstress will share the overall cost. 50% is due upon the conclusion of your first appointment and 50% is due upon completion.
In 2023, a healthy budget for alterations provided the dress fits well and is not damaged is $500 CAD
Since the dresses are off-the-rack, do I have to say "yes to the dress" during my appointment?
Off-the-rack wedding dress shopping is best for nearlyweds who are ready-to-buy, are budget-conscious and/or are in a tighter time crunch. Unlike traditional wedding boutiques, we typically only carry one of each dress. The dresses cannot be ordered in different sizes or colours. They are in the condition as presented.
With that in mind, we know wedding dress shopping can be a big decision and feel overwhelming at times. If you are not ready to say yes to the dress on the spot, but want comfort in knowing no-one else will snatch up your favourite dress, you can put a dress on hold. A hold is $100.00 + tax and guarantees that the dress will not be sold for 24-48 hours (depending on your appointment day/time). This gives you a chance to sleep on it, consult photos, and make a comfortable decision. The $100.00 is redeemable towards your purchase of the dress OR a gift card toward our online shop if you decide to head into a diferent dress direction.
