Here are answers to the most commonly asked questions.

When should I order my bridal gown?

            A bridal gown should be ordered 12 to 14 weeks in advance of the wedding date. A gown that has a change in design will take up to 16 weeks for delivery.

Why should I buy my dress at a boutique instead of online where it’s really cheap?

            When purchasing from our Bridal boutique, we can guarantee you that we are in fact an authorized licensed retailer. This means that you will be purchasing a dress that is of the highest quality, is not replicated, and therefore created by the true designer. Other caveats to be wary of are that the size you select may not be made for you body, the material maybe of poor quality, the color and design may not meet your expectations, and returns may not be accepted. There have been way too many horror stories about online wedding dress disasters, and scams. The risk to pay for something “cheaper” should not be left to chance. This is your special moment and precaution should always be observed and taken seriously.

How long will it take to order my bridesmaid’s dresses?

           Bridesmaid’s dresses should be ordered 12 to 14 weeks in advance of the wedding date.

Can I buy dresses off-the-rack?

           Bridal and bridesmaids dresses on the rack are typically sample dresses. They are meant for both the brides and bridesmaids to complement the bridal gown, the body form and the wedding theme. For the most part, we have to order your custom-made dress


Quinceanera dresses, like bridal and bridesmaids dresses, are sample dresses and may not be available for sale. There are some exceptions to rule where some bridal gowns and Quinceanera dresses would be available for purchase.  


Prom, special occasion and evening dresses are available to purchase if your size is available. These types of dresses can be ordered.


What is the turn around time for flower girl, Communion and Baptism outfits?

             Depending on the designer, a flower girl will take from 4 days to up to 12 to 14 weeks.. Communion and Baptism outfits will take 4 days for delivery.



How long will it take to get tuxedos in?

             We recommend gentlemen to get fitted the minimum 10 days before the event. Tuxedos will usually come in at least 3 to 4 days before the date of event.


What if my bridal party is out of state?

              This is not a problem. To remedy this issue, you download the Out-of-Town Groomsmen Measurement Form found on the Jim's Formal Wear website at: http://www.jimsformalwear.com/tuxedo-measurement-form.htm

Use the form as a tool to collect the tux measurements for the gentlemen in your wedding who are too far from your chosen Jim's Formal Wear Retailer to be measured. You will find all the measurements needed for the tuxedo order.


Why am I being ordered a bigger dress size than what I normally wear?

             Each designer has a specific manufacturer dress chart that is tailored for their own custom gowns. Therefore, depending on the style and design of the dress, your dress size will be ordered according to the designer's dress chart.


How are alterations handled at the bridal boutique?

              Just about anything is possible with formal wear alterations, whether purchased from our boutique or not. However, we are a formal wear boutique and we do not do alterations on regular clothing.


Who should accompany me to my formal wear appointment?

              We highly suggest that you bring individuals who you feel comfortable with, can trust, and can effectively communicate with you throughout your special event. Such wonderful individuals may offer you insight that you may have over looked.


If I have kids, should I get a sitter?

              We are a family-oriented bridal boutique; however, this is your special moment. Therefore, we highly suggest you have a child caretaker so that you are able to focus on picking your dream dress. In addition, this will allow our specialists to cater to your individual needs.

               If the children are getting formal wear for an occasion, we strongly suggest you bring them in to get measured.
