How Far in advance should i order my wedding dress?
We recommend ordering your dress 6-12 months before the wedding. This allows enough time for your dress to be constructed, shipped and altered. Each designer has rush options available if required, although additional fees normally apply. You must pick up within 3 months of your dress arriving.
Do I need to make an appointment?
Yes! We run by appointment only to ensure you get the full bridal experience! BOOK HERE
How should I prepare for my appointment?
Come in with an open mind! As you’ve likely heard, dresses look really different once they are actually on. If you have some picture references, they will help you communicate your ideas to your consultant. Take some time to look through magazines or online ahead of your appointment, and take note of the dresses you are drawn to. You can even look through our designer websites, that way we will likely have the exact dresses in stock.
As for what to wear, it is not strictly necessary to wear a strapless bra for your appointment because the dresses are usually very structured, most of the time you wont even need one. If you know you want to wear a certain shoe or a specific heel height on the big day then please bring along shoes.
Who Should I bring?
We recommend bringing your nearest and dearest decision makers to your appointment, as we have found that if you bring too many people it becomes extremely overwhelming for our brides. We have seating for up to 6 people. If you have a bigger party we can schedule you in for an after hours appointment for an extra fee, this fee will go towards your dress amount.
Are alterations included? Do you have a seamstress?
Alterations to your dress are not included in the ticket price. We wouldn’t want you to pay more than you need to for your specifically required adjustments to the gown. So the alterations are something that is generally excluded industry wide. We have a list of fantastic seamstresses in & out of town that we can recommend to you.
What price range does first comes love stock?
We do strive to work within any budget. Our regular priced dresses range from $999 up to $2999, with the average dress costing approximately $1399-$1999. However, if budget is a concern we are always happy to discuss different payment options and we do have a clearance section of off the rack gowns that are deeply discounted!
What size are your samples?
Our current samples range in size from 6 to 30. If you are concerned about sizes during your appointment then let us know and we can always have a few choices ready for you.
Do you offer after hours appointments or appointments on days you're closed?
Of course we do! If you need more time, a little more privacy, or if you'd like to bring a larger group you can have our boutique all to yourself while you find your dream dress. We would love to book you an after hours appointment :)
A trunkshow is when the designer sends us their newest collection. During a trunkshow you'll see everything the designer has to offer! We usually make a fun event out of it and offer discounts we're not normally aloud to offer on our lines!
