  1. First Appointments: The minimum time frame required during HIGH Season Spring/Summer 2021 is 10-12 weeks before your Closest Wear Date<<<this could be your Wedding Date or Bridal Portraits Date) We highly recommend you book your appointment as early as possible unless you plan to make major changes in sizing between now and the wedding. (major in alterations means 2-4 inches in areas such as bust, waist & hips)
  2. Bridal Portraits: when you call to make your appointment please share with us if you plan on doing bridal portraits this changes turn around times for alterations.
  3. Shoes: this is the most important item to bring to ALL your fittings, even if you are not getting your dress hemmed, shoes make all the difference!!
  4. Quotes: Prices can only be given in person.
  5. Payment: We take payment at the 1st fitting, this is when we offer the Full Consultation and take all measurements. No refunds.
