Special order designer gowns take approximately 4 to 8 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.

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

From our experience with working with brides for over 40 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 ensure that when you purchase your wedding dress, you will be thrilled with your choice.

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

Alterations may be necessary after you receive your gown, and are an additional charge as mentioned above.

It is important after you are notified that you make an appointment within 7 days after the arrival of your gown.
