Do I need an appointment to try on bridal gowns?
Yes please! At Boulevard Bride we strive to make your experience as personal as possible. An appointment allows us to get to know you and what you are looking for in a wedding dress.
We also require appointments for bridesmaid’s dresses and tuxedo rentals. We truly strive to make every part of your wedding stress-free and fun!
What is the price range for your wedding dresses?
Our wedding dresses range from $800-$3,000, with the average price being around $1,500. We take your wedding dress budget very seriously and do not put you in a dress that is over your budget unless we have your permission.
Can we take pictures?
Yes!! Take as many pictures as you would like! We suggest only taking pictures of the dresses that you love. This helps you to only focus on those dresses that you are truly interested in walking down the aisle in.
I have bridesmaids from out-of-town; how do they order their dresses?
Don’t stress about out-of-town bridesmaids, we make it easy!
Your bridesmaids will go to a seamstress and get bust, waist, and hip measurements. Then they will send their measurements to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we receive their measurements, we will call for the down-payment and then get the dresses ordered!
What sizes are your sample wedding dresses?
We try to have a wide range of dresses for all body-types! Our samples range from size 10 to size 20. Bridal sizes tend to run a bit small, so don’t be surprised if you are fitting into a gown that is 1-2 sizes higher than your normal size.
Who should I bring to my appointment?
Our store comfortably fits up to 5 guests. This number allows us to get to know you and your guests. This is also the perfect number of guests to get support from so that you do not feel overwhelmed by so many different opinions.
We suggest bringing your mom, mother-in-law, best friend, etc. Basically anyone who’s opinion truly matters to you.
Can we bring outside food and drink?
We do not allow outside food and drinks in our store. We have so many pretty white dresses that we do not want damaged.
On special occasions we do provide appetizers and champagne.
Will my dress need alterations? Do you do them?
Most dresses will need alterations in length. You may also need the bust and shoulder straps adjusted as well.
How far in advance do I need to order my dress?
Wedding dresses take an average of 6-9 months to come in. We always suggest ordering your dress a year in advance to avoid any stress. Ordering early allows you to avoid stress with manufacturing and delivery times and gives you enough time for any needed alterations.
Can I stop in to browse the dresses?
We prefer that you book a bridal appointment to get the full experience. A lot of times dresses look very different on than how they look hanging in the bag.
If you would like to browse our dresses, please view our Lookbook tab on the menu at the top of the page.
Can my mom/friend/etc. help me get into the dresses?
We ask that your mom and any other guests just relax and enjoy the experience of seeing you try on wedding dresses. Our staff members are available to help you into the dresses if you need any help. If you prefer, you can get into the gowns on your own and let our associate in to zip you up or get you clipped.
