Do I need to make an appointment to try on wedding gowns?

YES!  Our J Marie's stylist wants to provide you with the personal attention that you deserve to help you find your dream gown.

How long are appointments?

You will need to set 90 minutes aside as it is an important decision.

Are we allowed to bring guest and if so, how many?

Please bring family and friends dear to your heart.  It often enhances the intimate nature of selecting your dream gown.  Please be mindful that it can also present a challenge if they do not share your vision.  Bring guests that will be honest but also supportive!  We like to keep it to a maximum 6 guests.

Are children allowed?

We love children but kindly request you leave the kiddos at home.  As you can understand, a shop filled with white gowns, glass, mirrors, and delicate items may pose a safety risk for children.  

Can we bring our own snacks and/or beverages?

If you wish to bring your beverages, we only allow clear liquids.  No soda, coffee, pink champagne, or mixers of any kind.

No food of any kind is allowed.

Will you have my size?

We do our best to accommodate all body sizes; however, most of our sample sizes are 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, and 18.  We do have other sizing, and we will work our magic with clips during your appointment so you can get the best idea of how the gowns will look.  Bridal sizing is different from street sizing and may vary by designer.

What is your policy on taking pictures?

Picture taking is permitted in our boutique.  Taking pictures of price tags is not.

How far in advance should I purchase a gown?

We suggest you purchase 9-12 months before your wedding to allow production, shipping, and alterations.  We can accommodate rush orders for some designers, but rush fees will apply.  We also offer off-the-rack purchases on select gowns.

What are my payment options?

We accept cash, in-state checks, and credit cards. ( 3% fee will be applied for using any type of card )  A 60% non-refundable payment for special orders is due at the time of purchase. Complete payment is required at the time of purchase for all accessories.

Will my gown require alterations?

The answer is YES!  All gowns will require alterations to give a perfect fit for your wedding day.  With special orders, we will order your gown in the size closest to your measurements taken during your appointment.  The cost of alterations is NOT included in the purchase price.  We offer alterations within our boutique for J Marie's clients only.
