WHEN TO SHOP
We recommend purchasing your dress one year prior to your wedding date. Most gowns take about 6-8 months from first stitch to last snip. In addition to the 6-8 months for the dress to be created, you’ll want to leave time for alterations. Depending on the dress,alterations can take 2-3 months. Our best advice is to shop early and enjoy the process rather then rush through and be stressed.
WHO TO SHOP WITH
The smaller the group the better. We get it, everyone wants to be included in the process of picking the perfect dress, but remember and repeat after us it’s YOUR dress. You need to love your dress and have probably dreamed about what it should like for months, don’t let others opinions stray you from your dream dress.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I SPEND
Do a little research and have a budget in mind before shopping. Volles serves brides with budgets ranging from $1400-$8000 Make sure you communicate your budget and desired style to your consultant so you can say YES to your dream dress while staying within budget.
