Of course you have questions! Let me turn your worries in WONDERFUL.
What kind of appointments are offered?
Private Bridal Appointment (approx. 90 min.) This is for the bride visiting me for the first time. Each bride that walks into the boutique is given 1:1 consultation including professional styling services with Julie, the owner herself. We will discuss details for the types of wedding dresses you are interested in trying on. From there, we’ll hand-select gowns that will work with your vision and what will be most flattering. You and your guests will also be able to walk around the store and make some selections, as well. There is a $25 deposit to hold your appointment which will be applied to your purchase should you say “yes” that day.
The Royal Treatment (3 hours) Brides by Julie is excited to offer a unique experience not offered by any other bridal salon in our area!! This experience allows brides to have the entire boutique to themselves and their entourage (up to 6 guests) where they will be given the full royal treatment; a professional photographer to document every special moment, including when the bride says "Yes!" to her wedding dress, delicious hors devours, celebration beverages, beautiful flowers, and a private party room. This appointment is available weekdays 5-8:00 pm or Saturdays noon-3:00 pm. This service is free when your $200 deposit is applied back to your gown when you say “yes” the day of your appointment!
2nd Bridal Appointment (60 Minutes) Occasionally a bride narrows down her choices to 1-3 favorites and would like to return with someone special to say "yes" to the dress! A $25 deposit to hold the appt. is applied back to your gown purchase.
Fitting Appointment (30 minutes) When your gown arrives, we will set you up with a fitting appointment where you get to try on your gown and determine what alterations need to be made. If you have purchased an off-the-rack gown, you’ll return about 2 months before the wedding for alterations.
Accessory Appointment (60 Minutes) Accessory appointments are exactly what you need for finding the perfect pieces that complete your bridal vision. Brides by Julie offers a large variety of veils, headpieces, jewelry, clutches, belts, and gifts for everyone in your wedding. There is something for every bride and Julie specializes in sourcing hard to find quality merchandise.
