Tips For Your Visit

  Before your visit, please review the following information and ask yourself a few questions so you know what type of appointment to schedule:


1. Are you seriously looking to purchase your gown today?

2. Do you have your whole support team with you- those you want with you to help in your decision?

3. Are you wearing the proper undergarments (panties are mandatory and if not worn, appointment will need to be rescheduled)

4. Is your wedding 1 year or less away from the current date?


*If you've answered yes to all of these questions, you are ready for a Fancy Frock bridal appointment! Please let the consultant know! If you are NOT ready to purchase the day of your appointment, you may schedule a "Find My Style" consultation appointment for a $50 fee- you will be given 1 hour and may try on up to 4 gowns/silhouettes. Please let the consultant know if you'd like to book this type of appointment and if you decide to purchase at a later date, you will be credited back the $50 fee towards your purchase.



Helpful tips to remember:


  • Trust us - it is best to try on dresses with just one or two guests. If you plan to visit with a group larger than four, please let us know so that we can make special arrangements. We have limited seating/space and the shop can quickly feel crowded. Many differing opinions can also be overwhelming & confusing for the bride.
  • Travel light - many of our dresses are made from delicate fabrics, which can be damaged by makeup and jewelry. 
  • Our shop is not appropriate for babies or small children. We are unable to accommodate strollers or small children running around and worry that heavy mirrors, scissors and pins are in easy reach.
  • Please no food or drink except water.
  • In many cases, you may be sharing our shop with another bride and her party. This makes for a fun atmosphere, but if you prefer to have the shop to yourself, please schedule a private bridal appointment
  • We love brides who are on time for appointments! If you find you are running more than 10 minutes late - or early - please call to let us know but your appointment may need to be rescheduled per owner's discretion. We want to make sure you (and the brides before and after you) have a great experience and an adequate amount of time.

                                                    Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you!
