"I had no idea what I was looking for, but Emilie helped me find my PERFECT dress. Consignment gowns were beautiful and buying "used" saved me time and money. Highly recommend to other brides-to-be!"

- Philippa L.

"Went to five other bridal boutiques before going to Emerald City and wish I started here! Great selection and service and I said yes to the dress!"

Bridal Advice

Plan Ahead
Made-to-order designer gowns can take up to 6 months to produce. We recommend that you order approximately 8 to 10 months before your wedding day, as you will need sufficient time for fitting and accessorizing.

Have less time?
Our designers can accommodate rush orders, or shop our curated selection of off-the-rack consignment gowns and designer samples that can be purchased and taken home the same day. If you have a very specific question, please contact us. Visit our Community section to see our recommended seamstresses and more.

Prepare for your appointment
Our FAQ page has insightful information for helping brides plan for an appointment, like tips on what to bring. For example — bring heels of a height that you will wear for your wedding. Your heels help will determine the length of your hem. Visit our FAQ page for more info.
