Q: “How far in advance should I order my wedding dress?”
A: We recommend ordering your dress 6-9 months before the wedding. This allows enough time for your dress to be constructed, shipped and altered. Each designer has rush options available if required, although additional fees normally apply. Blush will store your dress for you until the wedding.
Q: “Do I need to make an appointment?”
A: If you know ahead of time when you would like to visit Blush it is always best to book an appointment. That way you are guaranteed to work with one of our experienced consultants who are here to help you every step of the way. However, if you find yourself just wanting to pop in, please do so. We can usually accommodate walk-ins! Appointments usually last between one and two hours, although there is no time limit.
Q: “How should I prepare for my appointment?”
A: Come in with an open mind! As you’ve likely heard, dresses look really different once they are actually on. If you have some picture references, they will help you communicate your ideas to your consultant. Take some time to look through magazines or online ahead of your appointment, and take note of the dresses you are drawn to.
As for what to wear, it is not strictly necessary to wear a strapless bra for your appointment because the dresses are usually very structured. If you know you want to wear a certain shoe or a specific heel height on the Big Day then please bring along shoes.
Q: “Who should I bring?”
A: Blush is a small boutique and as such we recommend that you limit your party to a trusted few. Bringing just your nearest and dearest can also make easier to decide on the perfect dress (too many opinions can often be overwhelming) However, if you do have a large group that wants to come and join in the fun, just let us know! We can always find a chair!
Q: “Are alterations included? Do you have a seamstress?”
A: Alterations to your dress are not included in the ticket price. We wouldn’t want you to pay more than you need to for your specific required adjustments to the gown. We have a list of seamstresses in town that we can recommend to you, just ask!
Q: “What price ranges does Blush stock?”
A: We strive to work within any budget. Our dresses range in price from $500 up to $4000, with the average dress costing approximately $1500-$2000. However, if budget is a concern we are always happy to discuss options.
Q: “What size are your samples?”
A: Our current samples range in size from 2 to 22. If you are concerned about sample size ahead of your appointment then let us know and we can always have a room ready for you.
