Our Most Important Tip : Plan Ahead!
Bridal attire and accessories are different from ready to wear apparel. Most gowns and accessories are custom made for each bride. Thus, you should allow plenty of time for your selections to be ordered and made - especially the gown. Most stores bring in their bridal shoes and bridal accessories in February, and keep them in stock through late August, in an effort to meet the needs of the once highly popular June wedding. Now every day and every time of the year seems to be a great time for a wedding, but not necessarily to find wedding shoes and many wedding necessities. Plan ahead. Think buying a swimsuit in November - it's a challenge. If you see something you love, avoid thinking "it will be there in a month or two when I'm ready to buy." Not necessarily... always ask the store you are shopping at or ask us, we hear from bride's all the time that waited until the last minute and were disappointed...we try our best to always have new and exciting merchandise on our site, but just like all bridal boutiques, inventories do get low at the end of the year.
