Since the Summer of 2014 we've made Wednesday, Thursday and Friday business hours available without appointments with astounding success, and we will continue to do so. On Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays we see walk-in bridal shoppers starting at opening, 11am, until our last walk-in fitting at 4:30pm. Bridal salon closes at 5pm. To avoid a wait on busy walk-ins days we encourage you to book an appointment, available from 12 - 4pm. Visit our appointment page for more info.
