Frequently asked questions

Why are appointments important?

Ever After believes the appointments are important because it gives the bride that one-on-one attention that they deserve. Scheduling an appointment will guarantee you the experience that you deserve when looking for that fairytale dress. Appointments can be personalized by having dresses picked out beforehand, if desired.To provide you with the highest level of service, we recommend you schedule an appointment so we can be sure to have a room and a personal consultant reserved for you. We will happily take walk-in appointments, provided we have a room and a personal consultant available.

Do you have Plus Size?

YES! We are so excited to be carrying OVER 30 Plus Size gowns in the store - the MOST in the area. Our biggest collection is through Stella York Everybody Everybride - they are the same dresses that Stella York has but they are availble for Sizes 18+.

Do you take walk-ins?

No we do not take walk-ins. Please book an appointment for whatever needs you have!

How can I prepare for the appointment?

The best thing to wear is nude underwear with a strapless bra even though many dresses you may want to try on without the bra. If you are a little shy, don’t worry! Just slipon a pair of leggings or tights. Bring a pair of shoes that will match the height that you will wear the day of your wedding. Bring a hair tie, it will be easier for the consultant to put on the dress and to get your measurements. It will also be a better way to look at each neckline of the dresses. Please wear minimal make up and no recent spray tans. We want to keep the dresses as clean as possibl. Look through Bridal magazines to acquire your taste and opinion in wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses! If you find dresses that catch your eye please bring them to your appointment. It is important for the bridal consultants to have an idea of what your vision is so she can help in finding dresses that you love!

Who many people should I bring to the appointment?

This decision is up to but we recommend having an intimate setting with no more than four guests because too many opinions could become overwhelming. If you do decide to bring more than four guests, we will book you a private appointment on Sunday or throughout the week for $50. Your guests should be loved ones in which you respect their opinion during this important decision! Don't forget this day is about you!

How long do appointments take?

Most bridal consultations take around 1 1/2 hour. However, Ever After wants to make sure that each bride has enough time during their appointments. If you believe that your appointment will take more than 90 minutes please let Ever After know when scheduling the appointment. Importance of Time: Brides that are on time are wonderful! However we understand if you are running late, please let Ever After know if you are running 15 minutes behind. Please understand that some slatted appointments may go over so we will be with the next appointment as soon as possible!

Why do Bridal Salons ask about budget?

The reason we ask for a budget from the bride is to make sure that the dresses you try on do not exceed that limit. We want you to fall in love with a dress that falls in your price range. You are more than welcome to try on any dress but a consultant will not pick out of your range. When you allow your bridal consultant to know your budget, you give them the ability to show you gowns that match your vision in both style and budget.

Do you carry every dress from each designer?

Ever After does not carry every style that a designer has, so please call ahead to verify that the gown you love is available in Ever After. We try to choose a variety of styles, colors and sizes to provide the best selection for all brides that walk in. If you are sold on a dress that one of our designers carry please let Ever After know and we can place a special order for you for a low cost.

What if I'm planning on losing weight?

While we understand that every bride wants to look their absolute best on their wedding day we recommend you order your dress in your current size and have the alterations done once it has arrived. It is easier to take in a dress than to attempt to take out the dress.

When should I purchase my gown?

Most brides like to order their dresses 8-12 months prior to ensure the delivery of the dress arrives on time and with time for alterations. However, if your wedding is sooner Ever After has options such as off the rack sales or rush delivery!

Can you explain the process of purchasing the gown?

Once you have chosen your special dress, Ever After will take measurements to find your size. We will dicuss any changes that you wish to make sure to the length, adding embleshiments or adding straps. These decisions have to be made at this time before the order is placed. In order for Ever After to order your gown, we need a 50% down payment with the rest of the total due when the gown is ready to be picked up. ALL SALES ARE FINAL
