This is my first time trying on dresses do you have everything from ball gowns to tulip skirts to shirts and destination gowns?
Not only do we have our curated collection of gowns from coveter designers such as Maria Korovilas, Bo & Luca, Odylyne the Ceremony, and the like, but we also hand-crafted unique garments like our wrap-robes and one of a kind designer pieces, as well as more formal ready-to-wear options that can be purchased that day. We also have a vintage collection that includes silk high waisted a-line skirts, a great option for a bride that wants to get creative! We carry only one “Cinderella” dress from our designer & For Love, and we do not carry full ball gowns. Our skirts are fitted with small trains, don’t expect the never-ending layers of tulle here with a matching corset or sweetheart top. While we offer more in the boutique than is offered online, we like to suggest that all of our brides take a look at our website to make sure our dresses are what you are looking for.
When should I start shopping for my dress?
We recommend having the wedding date set and your venue booked before you begin to try on wedding dresses. Our designers vary in lead time, anywhere from three months to eight months. The majority fall in to the three to five month lead time. We have some gowns that can be purchased in-store and the day of your appointment. The price point on these gowns range from $300 to $900. We also sell a few samples that are in excellent condition, these can also be purchased the day of your appointment. Generally speaking, we would recommend ten months in advance, but we can make anything happen! So don’t feel discouraged if your wedding is right around the corner and you still need your gown!
What should I do for alterations? Do you have a seamstress?
Yes! We have an in-house seamstress and she works fast and efficiently! If you purchase your wedding gown with us you’re welcome to use our space with our seamstress and do whatever you’d like to your gown! Ensuring you have enough time, our seamstress can make anything possible! Part of the perk of purchasing your gown with us is that you can meet with our seamstress however many times you would like and explore endless options for your gown!
How much should I expect to spend on my wedding gown at L&L Bridal?
Our gowns range from $400 to $6,000, and the majority fall in to the $1,000 to $4,500 range. For in-store purchases you have the option to provide a 60% down payment at the time of purchase and the remainder is due when your gown arrives. For online purchases you must pay 100% at the time of purchase.
