Frequently Asked Questions

Laurie’s is a small boutique, specializing in personal service. Bridal and bridesmaids appointments are required, so that we may have a consultant available to assist you, answer any questions you may have and give you the personal service you deserve.

We schedule 90 minutes for bridal and 60 minutes for bridesmaids. If our schedule allows, we can try to accommodate a little bit longer with advanced notice.

We cannot be held responsible if your measurements were taken elsewhere. Everyone measures differently and every manufacturer’s size charts are different. Dresses are ordered according to the measurements you provide at the time of your purchase. Together, we will review the size chart and we will advise you of the size recommendations according to the manufacturer. Please note, ALL manufacturers have their own size chart and we order to the closest size according to the measurements you provide. Ultimately, the final size ordered is your decision.

We recommend that you wear a strapless bra that you are comfortable in.

We recommend bringing 1-3 of your closest family or friends, whose opinions you respect and value. Dress shopping can be overwhelming to begin with. Sometimes, too many different opinions can confuse you.

We do not allow alcohol to be brought into the salon. We do not hold a liquor license.

We have several size ranges for you to try on.

Because we are such a personalized salon, we will do our best to accommodate you. Just call us and let us know what works for you and together, we’ll figure it out.

Since bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses are special ordered, not made to order, they do take a significant amount of time. Most manufacturers give an approximate delivery of 6-8 months for bridal and about 3-4 months for bridesmaids/mothers. Some companies offer a rush at an additional cost. You must also allow time for alterations, which, depending on the time of year, as well as what you need to have done, may take 2-3 months to complete. Many of our bridal samples are available to purchase off the rack. Our prom and special occasion gowns are always available to purchase off the rack.

At this time, we do not offer in house alterations. However, we have partnered up with a couple of very well experienced seamstresses, whose information we can provide to you upon your purchase.

Our bridal gowns range in price from about $699-$4000. We want every bride to be able to afford the dress of her dreams and not fall in love with ones that are out of her price range. We also offer semi-custom gowns at an additional and affordable cost.
