Your wedding dress sets the tone for much of your wedding, so we recommend starting your journey there! Most brides purchase their wedding dress directly out of our collection as we stock in most sizes. If you choose to order your dress, we recommend doing so by at least 9 months before your wedding. You want to make sure to have plenty of time for alterations. Bridesmaid gowns should be ordered 8-9 months before the wedding. We recommend ordering tuxedos and menswear 4 months or more before the wedding.
*Shorter time frames can usually be accomodated, just ask!
While we would love to help everyone who walks in, we are open by appointment so that we can be prepared and give you the best experience possible! Our Lower Level prom and formal wear store is open and staffed only by appointment as well.
You can schedule an appointment at your convenience here!
Our bridal suites comfortably accommodate 3-4 guests. Think of those few people you absolutely want there to share in your moment. If you are hoping to bring more people to your appointment please consider our Luxury Experience!
Wedding dresses at our store are priced $1200 - $3000 with the majority of them being around $1600.
Our main goal is to have dresses in our collection that every bride can try on! Our samples are typically available in sizes 30 - 4. Wedding dresses are sized differently than everyday clothing so be prepared to fit into dress sizes above what you normally wear. Why is this? Designers use European sizing!
Any of our dresses can be purchased right out of our collection. If you would like a different color or size, most gowns can be ordered! Know that an ordered wedding dress can take 6-8 months to arrive.
Storage of your dress at Elegant Occasions is available for a low monthly charge, or become a VIP bride and receive free storage and insurance until your original wedding date!
Every dress is as unique as every bride and the alterations needed can vary. Alteration prices are not included with purchases, but rather determined for every bride individually. We want you to pay only for the work that is needed on your exact gown!
We recommend pulling your hair back if you have longer hair. Trying several dresses on can do a number on your hair otherwise! Please make sure you have panties on and a strapless bra if you would like (most dresses have built in support so it’s not necessary). You also may like to bring a bottle of water.
