Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long do wedding dresses take to come in after they are ordered?

    It takes approximately four to six months for a dress to arrive, so please take that into consideration when scheduling your appointment. Once the dress arrives, you want to allow one to two months for alterations. We ideally recommend beginning the wedding dress shopping process nine months to one year prior to your wedding date so you can avoid rush fees and enjoy the experience! If you are unsure if you will be able to order a gown through our store due to a shorter engagement, we invite you to give us a call, so we can talk through some of our various rush-shipping options in more detail.

  • What size wedding dress samples do you have in store?

    We have samples in a wide variety of sizes from 2 – 34 in store, with more than 50 of those samples in sizes 18-34 ready for you to try on.

  • Can I buy a wedding dress off the rack?

    In most cases, no. We have sample gowns in a variety of sizes, and we can order your special gown based on your specific measurements.

  • Should I wear specific undergarments to my bridal apppointment?

    We recommend bringing a strapless bra, which will allow you to better view the intended neckline of a gown. We will have robes available to you in the fitting rooms, so you can feel covered and comfortable in between trying on dresses.

  • What designers do you carry in you Kansas City bridal shop?

    We are proud to be the only store in Kansas City that carries Essense of Australia, Stella York, Martina Liana and Sorella Vita.

  • Who should I bring with me to my wedding dress appointment?

    We know that shopping for a wedding gown is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and finding “the one” should be a special, memorable moment, shared with your closest family and friends. Most of our brides have success bringing anywhere from one to six guests to accompany them on their search, but we would love for you to bring whoever’s opinions you value and trust the most—we don’t limit you on your number of guests! We ultimately want you to feel confident and gorgeous when you stand in front of the mirror in one of our gowns, because we think every woman should experience the pure joy of finding her dream dress with the people she loves by her side to forever share in her special moment.

  • What is the price range of the wedding dresses at your store?

    Our wedding dresses range from just under $1,000 to approximately $5,000. Your stylist will work closely with you to ensure you are comfortable with the price range of gowns selected.

  • How long will my first wedding dress appointment last?

    First bridal appointments last 90 minutes. This allows you enough time to browse through our wedding dresses with your stylist, try on six to eight gowns, narrow down your selection and make an educated decision on which dress is “the one.” We never want you to feel rushed, which is why we’ve allocated a full hour and a half for your appointment.

  • Do I need to have an appointment to try on wedding dresses?

    Yes, we prefer that you make an appointment so we can ensure one of our bridal stylists is available to assist you. An appointment will also guarantee you a private fitting room and seating for your guests. To make an appointment, please visit our Appointment page or call us at 913.317.8981.
