Now, if you are ordering your gown, you need place the order 9-12 months ahead of your wedding date. It is acceptable to order 6-9 months ahead, but not ideal. If time does not allow this, inquire about your options. Sometimes, designers offer particular styles in a shorter time frame at no extra cost. However, if your style is not included in this category, then you need to inquire about rushing your dress. Each designer has different price points and time lines for rushing, so it is our job to share all of this information with you. Just remember, you do have options.
Next, you need to ask about your payment options. And, also, you need to know how much money is required as a deposit. Ask about payment plans and, in addition, ask about promotions at the store if you pay in full. Again, information is key and we are here to serve you, so do not be timid at this time. We love for you to leave with your heart and mind at ease. We realize that this is a big, emotional purchase and we want to handle you with the utmost care.
Also, you need to know that alterations are not included in the purchase of your gown. They are a separate fee, but at FORmally YOUrs, we cap the cost as a service to you to protect you from outrageous fees.
