What We Carry
In our boutique we carry over 450 bridal gowns. You can check out our designers here.
East Coast Bridals requires appointments to try on our wedding gowns so we can provide you and your party with one-on-one service. Check out our appointment packages here.
Food & Beverages
We are unable to allow in outside food and beverages at our boutique.
This does apply to champagne or other alcoholic beverages.
We do ask any children attending with you be above the age of 10. However we are a very small boutique and limited on space. It is much easier to leave the little ones at home so that your stylist and group can focus you!
When You Should Start Shopping
Most wedding gowns take 5-8 months to come in, and the alterations process typically takes 2-3 months, depending on the amount of work. We recommend you begin shopping 9 months before your wedding.
Wedding gown sizes typically run one or two sizes smaller than street clothes, so try not to get hung up on the number. Do not fixate on the actual size but instead on how your measurements compare to the particular line on the specific designer’s size chart.
We require accessories and off-the-rack items to be paid for in full.
We offer a 50% dress deposit on orderable gowns. Once your dress comes into the store you would pay your remaining balance. If you need a little more assistance with your gown purchase, we do have other payment options available that can be discussed in your appointment or over the phone.
What Happens After You Say "YES!"
When you are ready to order the gown of your dreams, there are a few steps to follow:
– We take your body measurements.
– We decide on a size and discuss any special changes that may be required for the best fit.
– All necessary paperwork is completed and the gown is paid for.
Gown Delivery Timeline
Depending on the manufacturer and custom changes, the gowns could take anywhere from 5-8 months to arrive.
Also, designers do not provide updates in between ordering and shipping.
Due to shipping issues and current circumstances all over the world, gowns are taking longer ship times than usual. Shipping is dependent on each designer and manufacturer which can all vary.
Our boutique does not have an in-house seamstress. We have networked with local seamstresses to
send our brides to once their gown arrives.
Alterations costs are NOT included in the purchase of your gown.
Charges for alterations will be addressed with your seamstress.
Alterations should begin 2-3 months before the wedding.
Sample & Stock Options
You can definitely purchase a gown “off-the-rack,” which means you’ll be purchasing a sample that has been previously tried on. These gowns are in excellent condition and are typically reduced in price. We also have some manufacturers that have extremely quick rush options, or some stock options!
