HEADS—UP, important info.
Appointments are required for bridal gown shopping so that we can give each bride our undivided attention. An Emerald City Gowns consultant is made available to assist you in finding a wedding gown that best suits your personal style. We allot one hour time slot for your bridal appointment.
When booking an appointment there is a lead time of 1 hour to 21 days, you may not book an appointment MORE than 21 days in advance. Exceptions, please contact us. Maximum party of 5.
Weekend appointments book up in advance during our busiest season. We may require a credit card (NO CHARGE FOR THE APPOINTMENT) to secure your weekend appointment slot, please read the cancellation policy.
PLAN AHEAD, pro-tip.
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.
