To give you a one-of-a-kind experience, we try to have one bride at a time in our store. Weekends tend to fill up fast so you may see another bride in the store with you.

9

Please DO NOT spray tan prior to your appointment as your sample gown will be worn by many brides. We want to keep it as clean as possible.

9

A bridal consultant will be helping you get in & out of each dress so please make sure you’re wearing undergarments which you will be comfortable being seen in.

9

Expect your appointment to run about 1 hour. We don’t ever want to rush you, but we have to be mindful of the next bride and our consultants schedule.

9

Trunk sales are great ways to get a 10% discount on your favorite designer!

9

If you find your dream gown during your appointment you will be expected to put down a 50% deposit. With that said, please keep your budget in mind and stick to it.

9

Bring your closest companions with you: your mom, MIL, sisters & Maid of Honor. Bringing your whole bridal party isn’t a great idea, though. Too many opinions will stray you from your gut feeling. We like to think 5 people max.

9

We kindly ask to please keep children at home if possible. There are a lot of very delicate and pricey items in the store, not to mention glass, mirrored surfaces everywhere. It can be both messy and dangerous. We would like to keep our store a clean, safe and fun environment for all.

9

We will hold a person accountable if damage is done to our merchandise by them or their child.

9

Prior to your appointment eat something light. You don’t want to be stuffed, but also don’t want to be thinking about food the whole time!

9

Light makeup is preferred. Again, we are just trying to keep each gown in tip-top shape.

9

Samples range from size 8 to 14. We will do our absolute best to make a true fit by clipping material, or inserting a panel.

9

Our gowns start at $1200 & go up to $5000, with most priced between $1500-$3k.

9

We don’t have alterations on-site but we can recommend someone.

9

Shop at least 8 months in advance, preferably 10. This will ensure you have time for alterations as well.

9

Your entourage is welcome to look at gowns however please let your consultant handle them.

9

This goes for accessories as well. We know they're shiny and pretty and everyone wants to have fun, but most of them are made from Swarovski crystals. We don't want your fun day to turn into an unwanted expense.

9

Have fun, smile, and enjoy your day! It’s all about you at Genevieve’s!
