Frequently Asked Questions

How many guests should I bring to my bridal appointment?

We ask that you limit your number of guests to no more than four as our gallery and bridal suites will comfortably seat four guests. We do not allow babies, children or anyone under the age of twelve to be present during an appointment. This ensures the best Ellynne Bridal experience for all brides and guests. If you would like to include your entire bride tribe during your appointment, we recommend booking an upgraded private experience or princess appointment. 

What is a Private Experience or Princess Appointment?

A private experience or princess appointment is a great option for brides that want a more intimate, personal Ellynne Bridal experience. These appointments are exclusive, private and after hours, allowing for the most individualized time with your bridal consultant(s). Check out our appointments page for more details. 

Who should I bring to my appointment?

Bring a close friend or family member that you value their opinion, someone that you want to be included in this important decision. We do not recommend bringing children to your appointment as they may take the focus off you and your experience.

Why do I need to make an appointment to try on wedding gowns?

We want to always give you the best possible experience. Weekends are very busy at our store and appointments are necessary. This ensures you receive your consultant’s full attention.

What should I bring with me to my appointment?

If you plan to wear a strapless bra with your gown, please bring one to your appointment as we do not provide undergarments. Also, please do bring an open mind with you as you are trying on different styles of gowns. Many brides find their gown on their first visit, so don’t be surprised if you do the same!

How long is my appointment?

Bridal appointments are reserved for an hour and a half. Bridesmaid and accessory appointments are reserved for one hour. We recommend you show up a few minutes before your scheduled time to get checked in and meet your consultant.

Are food and beverages allowed at my appointment?

Ellynne Bridal does not allow outside food or beverages in the store. If you would like celebratory champagne and snack, we suggest booking one of our upgraded private experiences or princess appointments. Visit our appointments page for more details. 

What is a trunk show?

A trunk show is an in-store event where the featured designer sends their newest collection that is typically not in stores yet. These events usually last up to three days. If you find your dream bridal gown at a trunk show, be prepared to order that weekend as after the show they will no longer be available to try on.

How far in advance do I need to order my gown?

We recommend you order your gown at least 9-12 months before your wedding. The designers we carry don’t start making your gown until after you place your order. Plus, you will need time for those final alterations to get the perfect fit. It is never too early to say yes to your dress as wedding gowns can take 6-9 months to arrive in our store.

My wedding is in three to five months. I do not have a gown yet! Can I still get one in time?

We are always happy to check with our designers to see if the gown you are interested in is available for a rush order. However, a rush order fee would apply. Another option would be to purchase one of our sample gowns off the rack. This option is available for most previous season gowns.

What is the price range of your gowns?

Our gowns range from $900 to $5,400 with a wide selection or designers and styles in every price range, with an average price point of $1800-$2200. This does NOT include the cost of alterations which are an additional cost to be expected on every gown purchase. 

Can I customize my gown?

Yes! Several of our designers allow customization of your gown to make it perfect just for you! From small changes such as, different straps or adding or removing a layer of sparkle or lace, to more drastic changes like changing the bodice shape, overall look of the skirt or even putting two gowns together to create your dream wedding dress. Let our expert consultants guide you through the custom process, so you can walk down the aisle in a one-of-a kind master piece
