The majority of our brides special order their gowns based on their color choice and size, but we also have a collection that may be purchased off the rack at an incredible price. With our excellent status in the wedding industry, there are very few gowns that we are unable to obtain.
Headpieces, gloves, dyed-to-match shoes, and jewelry are just a few of the accessories available to complete the look. If you are looking for specialty items such as garters, guest books, photo albums, toasting glasses, favors, cake tops, flower girl baskets and ring bearer pillows, we have much to choose from.
*We have a large selection of bridal and formal shoes with our own custom shoe dying service on-premises allowing for a 24-hour turnaround.
Our “littlest angel” flower girl dresses are adorable with a wide array of styles to choose from. For the ring bearers, we carry equally adorable knicker-styled and Eaton suits.
We also have a beautiful selection of head wreaths, flower baskets, and ring pillows.
We have some of the best seamstresses in South Florida working with us to custom fit your gown to your body. Many of them have been working with us for over twenty years and are experts in their field.
You don’t have to bring anything. Just yourself, a smile, and a maximum of three guests if you wish.
Bridal gowns usually run two sizes larger than your original size. However, every gown is different, and the styles are different. So it’s best to try them on. If we end up ordering your gown, we will take measurements to fit the gown best to your size. Please keep in mind everybody is different, and alterations are very common to guarantee the best fit for your body.
Our bridal gowns start at $499 and end at around $3000.00
