Do I need an appointment?

Each Bridal and Off The Rack Bridal appointment runs for approximately 75 minutes. We find this is a perfect amount of time to browse the collection of dresses and get settled in the boutique for your Sash + Bustle experience. To help us make the most of your appointment, visit the Designers section of our website to see photos from our curated collection and make a list of your “must-try” designers. We reserve 45 minutes for accessories styling appointments.

How long is an appointment?

We find it most comfortable to order your gown 7-10 months prior to your wedding day. The bridal gowns are made to order and take 4-6 months to produce. When factoring in alteration time it can take up to 6-8 months to have your gown in-hand and fitting perfectly for the big day. That said, we do accommodate rush requests whenever possible. Please let us know if you have a tight timeline before your wedding and we’ll guide you to collections that we can order quickly. Rush fees may apply.

Do you sell wedding dresses off the floor if I don’t have time to order?

We order the dress in as close to your size as possible, but in most cases a wedding gown will need alterations to give you the perfect, tailored fit.

Will I need alterations?

We do not offer in-house alteration services. We are happy to provide a list of expert seamstresses in the GTA that do excellent work. We have also been working on a national and international list of recommended seamstresses for all of you out of town brides-to-be!

What do I need to bring, and do I need to wear special undergarments?

A trunk show is a special event when our boutique features a specific designer’s entire or latest collection for a limited time. Often the designer attends in person, and sometimes lucky brides can be eligible for discounts! To visit a trunk show, please browse our events page to see all of the upcoming trunk shows. Also see our blog on “Everything You Need to Know About a Trunk Show."
