Are you by appointment only?
No, though we strongly recommend making an appointment, especially on the weekend. That way, we can be sure you’ll have a private space and a bridal stylist available to help you.
Do you carry size-inclusive designers?
Definitely. Our number one goal is to make you feel and look your best, and we’re proud to offer a great selection of dresses and garments for a range of shapes and sizes.
Do you offer formal attire besides gowns?
Absolutely. We have jumpsuits, rompers, and other formal attire to choose from.
How long is a typical appointment?
Each session takes about an hour and a half.
I’ve found my perfect dress/formal attire. What’s next?
Once you’ve made your selection, either during your first appointment or during a follow-up visit (your “say yes to the dress” moment), we’ll place an order for your dress. When it arrives, you’ll be invited back to the boutique to try it on for the first time.
How long does it take to get a wedding dress?
Typically, it takes five to seven months. We also sell dresses off the rack and have rush options available. We find that many brides are shopping eight months to a year in advance.
Is your boutique wheelchair accessible?
Yes, there is a ground-level entrance at the side of our building (found by going down Millie’s Lane). Our bridal boutique is wheelchair accessible and has comfortable chairs and air conditioning to make the shopping experience as enjoyable as possible.
What are your sample sizes?
We have sample dresses from size 4 to 26/28. We’re also experts in using industrial clips to make most sizes work for you and your beautiful shape.
What should I bring to my appointment?
Nude undies are always a good idea, and shapewear if that feels good to you. If you’re wondering about whom to bring, we recommend a small group of close friends and family rather than a large entourage.
Is there parking nearby?
Yes, there is metered street parking in front of the boutique and a parkade across the street, with the first hour free.
Do you offer alteration services?
No, but we’re happy to share our list of talented seamstresses in the Victoria area.
Do you accept wedding dresses on consignment?
Yes, learn more about our policies and the kinds of dresses we sell in The Sale Room.
