BOUTIQUE DETAILS

SHOPPING

What is the price range of your gowns?

Our made-to-order gowns range from $1,800 to $5,500.

Our off-the-rack selection varies, but typically start around $1,000 and go up from there.

How far out should I start shopping for my gown?

Most wedding gowns take 4-7 months to come in, and the alterations process typically takes 2-3 months, depending on the amount of work. We recommend you order your gown 8-10 months before your wedding!

Gown Sizing

Wedding gown sizes typically run one or two sizes smaller than street clothes, so try not to get hung up on the number. Do not fixate on the actual size but instead on how your measurements compare to the particular line on the specific designer’s size chart.

APPOINTMENTS

Appointment Types

 ◦ Classic appointment: You are on a mission to find the one!

    ◦    Return appointment: I’ve found the gown with y’all and I’m ready to say yes! 

    ◦    Viewing appointment: Come and get your feet wet! Find your favorites to say “Yes!” at a future time! I’m in the beginning stages of shopping and I’m just looking for ideas! 

Appointment Policy

Friday through Sunday appointments require a $50 fee that goes towards your purchase

during the weekend of your appointment! 

Monday through Thursday appointments don’t require a fee.

**Viewing appointments are strongly recommended Monday- Thursday**

Our weekend experience includes mimosas and a charcuteries board for you and your party! 

Please inquire during your phone consultation if you want to enhance your experience during the week! 

How long does an appointment last?

Our bridal appointments are an hour and a half. During your appointment you are able to try an average of 10-12 gowns and we leave time at the end to retry on favorite gowns with accessories.
Note- Please arrive to your appointment 5-10 minutes early and make sure to allow time for parking. 

How many people can accompany me to my appointment?

We know it’s the most important dress you’ll ever wear, and you want to make sure it’s absolutely perfect. But having 10 different opinions makes it much harder to come to a consensus—and it can bring you farther away from what you actually want. We ask that no more than 5 additional guests accompany you to your bridal appointment. Please let the stylist know your guest number when you book your appointment so we can accommodate everyone.

Does your boutique allow children?

We love little ones! However our boutique is limited on space. It is much easier to leave the little ones at home so that your stylist and group can focus you!

Sample gown availability (out of time to order)

Don’t worry- we’ve got options!

You can definitely purchase a gown “off-the-rack,” which means you’ll be purchasing a sample that has been previously tried on. These gowns are in excellent condition and are typically reduced in price.

We also have some manufacturers that have extremely quick rush options, or some stock options!

Give us a call, preferably on a weekday, so we can be as thorough as possible!

BUYING

I said YES! What’s the next step?

When you are ready to order the gown of your dreams, there are a few steps to follow:

– We take your body measurements.

– We decide on a size, and discuss any special changes that may be required for the best fit.

– All necessary paperwork is completed and the gown is paid for.

Do you take deposits on gowns?

We require accessories and off-the-rack items to be paid for in full. We offer a 70% dress deposit with a $50 finance fee, that is split into two payments. Once the dress comes into the store you would pay your remaining balance.

How long will it take for my gown to arrive?

Depending on the manufacturer and custom changes, the gowns could take anywhere from 4-7 months to arrive.

ALTERATIONS

Does your salon offer in-house alterations?

La Raine’s Boutique has lists of seamstresses in the area that we are able to provide.

Please note, alterations are not included in the price of your gown. 

SHIPPING

Can you ship my gown to me?

Yes, we can ship your gown to you anywhere in the continental United States!
