Frequently Asked Questions

WHEN TO START WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING?
Our made to order dresses takes 4-6 months to produce. Brides should factor in 3 additional months for alterations or 4 months for custom alterations. We suggest shopping 9-12 months prior to the wedding date. This allows time to find the perfect dress, garments, shoes and accessories as well as the appropriate time for alterations and to avoid rush fees.
SAMPLE SALE dresses are purchased OFF THE RACK 25-75% off for brides on the budget and/or little time to shop. Either call to speak to a representative or schedule an appointment for weddings less than 6 months away.
DO I NEED AN APPOITNMENT TO VISIT?
We practice appointment only to provide proper and quality service to all of our guests.
Bridal appointments are required to provide each bride our undivided attention and the Pink Poodle experience. Please visit our appointment page to select your service.
