Do I need an appointment?

How long does it take to order a dress?
Each designer has her own production schedule, but the typical time frame is 12-14 weeks. Budget a month or so for alterations—some dresses are made to standard sizes, and some to measure, so some tailoring is to be expected. Most of our designers can honor a rush order for a fee; just ask us for more info if you’re on a deadline.
Do you carry bridesmaid dresses?
Unfortunately bride does not carry bridesmaid dresses at this time, but we can give references to some amazing designers.
Do you carry complete collections by each designer?
Bride tries to carry as many pieces as possible from each of our designers, but many designers have very large collections that would be impossible to carry completely. Bride chooses its sample selections according to the styles, fabrics and colors that best represent the designer and would most appeal to our customers. If you’d like to know if we have a particular style available to try on please contact us via email or phone.
What sizes do you carry?
Our typical sample size range is 6 – 12. Most vintage dresses run from small to medium for a few larger pieces. One of a kind, new designs are typically mediums that can be taken in or slightly let out.
What is the price range for dresses and accessories at bride?
The average price for a dress is around $1000 and $100 for accessories. Bride carries dresses as low as $50 for a simple vintage piece to $1500 for a detailed designer piece. Bride keeps it prices low, but invest in only unique and quality pieces.
