The following are frequently asked questions and answers that will help you in your quest to find the perfect wedding dress:

 

Do I need to schedule an appointment?

Yes!  While appointments are not required, they are highly recommended.  An appointment guarantees you a private dressing room and a personal bridal consultant.

 

How long does it take for a gown to come in? 

A dress takes four to six months to come in and then at least a month for alterations to be performed.  Rush options are usually available for those who are needing a dress in less than four months.  A small additional fee is usually required for a rush.  Bridesmaid dresses take anywhere from ten to twelve weeks to come in.  Rush options are also available for bridesmaid dresses.

 

What is the average price of a dress from Something New?

Our dresses range from $1000.00-$7000.00, with the average price being around $3000.00.  We also have a sample rack with gowns marked down as much as 75%.  Bridesmaid dresses range from $200.00-$350.00.

 

What do I need to do to prepare for my appointment?

First and foremost, set a budget.  It is never a good thing to fall in love with a gown that is over the amount you are willing to spend.  Also, know that finding the perfect dress takes time.  Allow an hour to two hours for your appointment. Keep an open mind while trying on gowns.  The dress in the magazine ad may not look the same on you and that’s ok!  There is a beautiful dress out there for each bride!  Finally, know that the more people your bring to your appointment equals more opinions.  While you are welcome to bring as many people as you like, we recommend you bring only those whose opinions matter the most to you!  With all of that being said, your bridal appointment is supposed to be fun, so relax and let us help you find “The Dress”!
