What to Expect

The Experience

Regardless of your style preference, budget or size, every bride deserves to feel beautiful, comfortable and confident in her wedding dress and that is exactly our goal. With the assistance of one of our professional bridal consultants, we are dedicated to understanding your style and vision in hopes of helping you find the most perfect dress and accessories.

We want your shopping experience not only to be memorable, but one worth sharing.  We offer a non-intimidating, non-overwhelming, non-judgmental atmosphere for you to relax and be yourself …as if you were home and amongst friends.

When Should I Start Shopping For My Wedding Dress? And Bridesmaid Dresses?

Ideally you should start shopping at least nine months before your wedding date. Once ordered, a wedding dress can take 6 to 8 months to arrive. On top of that, you need to factor in time for fittings and alterations. We do have rush services on select gowns available, however you will be responsible for additional rush fees that are passed down by the designer.

Should you have time constraints, all gown are able to be sold off the rack (sample gowns), new with tags.

What Should I Bring To The Appointment?

One of our consultants will be helping you get in and out of the gowns, so bring a strapless bra, as well as any other
undergarments you will feel comfortable in. If you happen to forget, don’t worry! We stock strapless bras in a variety of sizes. If you have a shoe height preference in mind, please bring shoes with that height, even if they are not your actual wedding shoes.

Don’t forget your camera to reflect back on the experience !

Do I Need An Appointment?

We want your experience to be as personal as possible. Therefore, we do require appointments for  both bridal and bridesmaid shopping.

We have three options available for visiting our shop.

How Long Are The Appointments?

You should never feel rushed when making such an important decision, so we block out 2.5-3 hours for all bridal appointments. Bridesmaids are scheduled for one hour.

We encourage you to browse our selection of designer gowns and try on as many as you choose! .

Who should I bring with me?

Shopping for a bridal gown is a special event and we realize that there are many people in your life you want to share it with.  We do not care how many people you bring and are only concerned about the overall comfort of your guests (remember we are a smaller boutique in size).   However, we suggest that you limit your guests to a few key people. Everyone will have opinion on every gown that you try on, and too many opinions can make the experience a bit overwhelming. Therefore, bring only those who you know are truly there to support you.

We love little ones, however bridal appointments can be lengthy for them.  They are more than welcome to attend, although we ask that they be supervised accordingly.

Do you offer alterations?

A perfect dress need to have the perfect fit.  We offer our brides the best service in alterations by recommending three of our outside seamstresses.  All alterations costs go directly to our experienced seamstresses.  Unlike other salons, Annabelle Bridal does not add any additional charges for your alterations.  This way our brides know that their gown is being altered by a top professional at an affordable price.  Once your gown has the perfect fit, Annabelle Bridal prepares your dress for your special day (steam and press) so it is ready for you to step into.  It is as important to us as it is to our bride, that her dress look impeccable on her wedding day.

Do You Offer Any Specials?

All of our bridal gowns are priced at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP).  Discontinued gowns are marked down or deemed “on sale”. 

If you are an Annabelle Bride, your bridesmaids receive 10% off their dresses!

What Do I Do With My Dress After The Wedding?

Your wedding dress will always have sentimental value to you, as well as being an investment.  We offer cleaning and preservation services to preserve the dress for future generations to come.  Just bring your dress and veil in after your special day and we will take care of the rest.
