We do accept donations of new gowns on Fridays & Saturdays by Appointment

What should I bring to try on gowns?
We encourage you to wear or bring a strapless bra, if you have one, and wear nude or light colored undergarments for trying on. At our sale events it is likely you will be changing in an open area with other brides, so we suggest that you wear tight fitting clothing such as leggings if you are concerned about modesty.
Can I take pictures?
You are free to bring a camera with you. Pictures can be helpful in making the final gown choice.
Do you accept returns?
Unlike, most bridal salons who place special orders and do not accept returns or exchanges, we can accept exchanges. We cannot accept returns but if you buy your gown and decide that it is not the gown for you we will allow you to exchange it for any gown in the store. Certain conditions do apply.
