At Luxe Bridal we do recommend appointments for bridal gowns and will give first priority to our clients with appointments. However, we will certainly do our best to accommodate those clients who feel like dropping in.
We have everything here that you need to try on gowns... bustiers, shoes, veils....!
Our wedding gown collections range from about $1,200 up to $5,000 and flower girl dresses range from $120 to $200.
All of our gowns & separates are special order, though we do sell our samples off-the-rack for bridal emergencies. Keep in mind that there is a limit to how many sizes up or down that a dress can be altered.
Yes, we list all of our designers on our website. For each of the designers listed, we carry a wide selection of styles, but we might not carry the entire line. We recommend that you follow the links on the Designers page and browse each line on the manufacturer's website. If you see something you like, give us a call and we'll tell you if we carry it in our store. Remember, even if we don't have the dress you're looking for, there may be a trunk show coming up or we can make arrangements to have the dress brought in for you!
Our sample wedding dresses are generally between size 8 and size 14. Please keep in mind that we are a small boutique and therefore it is impossible for us to stock every size and color. Fortunately, we can clip a dress to give you a good idea of how the gown will look in your size.
Usually brides shop for their wedding dress 9 months to a year before their wedding date, as many special order gowns take 4-6 months to come in. Tighter timelines can sometimes be accommodated by buying off-the-rack or by requesting a rush order. Flower girls are usually shopped for closer to the wedding because the little girls are growing so fast that they may grow out of the dress if you order too early.
After your gown has been paid for in full, we are happy to store the dress in our shop until your first fitting.
From time to time, we will borrow the rest of a designer's line for a special event called a trunk show. This gives our customers a chance to try on styles that we don't normally carry. During trunk shows we can sometimes offer a 10% savings on anything ordered from the line we're promoting. Bridal appointments during trunk shows fill up fast, so please make your appointment early.
All sales are final. Please choose carefully!
We recommend ordering your gown at least 6-9 months before your wedding. Since most gowns take about 4-6 months to come in, this leaves time for alterations and custom changes.
We can order any dress as long as we carry that designer's line. If you see a style on the designer's website that we don't carry in our shop, we may be able to borrow the dress from the designer. Otherwise, there might be a trunk show coming up where you will be able to try the dress on. All you have to do is ask!
That's okay, we'll measure you. Bridal sizes are different from other garments, so even if you think you know what size you are, we'll make sure before you order that we have all your measurements.
Most designers offer a custom "hollow to hem" measurement for an additional fee. If you're not sure what shoes you will be wearing that's ok. You can use a pair with the heel height you want and shop for your shoes later. If you find that your dress needs altering when it arrives at Luxe, we can refer you to a highly recommended seamstress in the area.
We require a non-refundable 50% deposit to order a gown. We accept Visa, Master Card, Debit, or Cash. The balance of your order is due 30 days from when your dress arrives at Luxe. All dresses must be paid for in full before alterations can begin.
Please call the boutique for information on our event planning services.

From gorgeous castles to beachside resorts, we're bringing you a photo gallery of the beautiful hotels where stars have said "I do." And fortunately, everyone on our list is still married - even if its only been a couple weeks of wedded bliss! Check out the five hotels we can now add to our list.

We've never seen Post-It Notes used like this before!
A Denver man wrote "I love you" on 8,000 yellow Post-Its and wallpapered his girlfriend's apartment with them. Then, he used colored Post-Its to spell "I love you" and "Will you marry me?" on the walls.
The man's mother sent photos of the proposal to local news station KUSA Wednesday, including a photo of her son holding a pice of paper that said "I asked," and his bride-to-be holding a sign that said, "I said yes!"
Watch the video above to see the sticky (but sweet) proposal.
For some, the best way to pop the question is to not say a word at all. One man proposed to his boyfriend earlier this year by filming himself holding signs explaining why he loves him.

When I got married last October, all I heard were variants of âThis is your day. Itâs all about you.â These messages made me uncomfortable, both because they promoted entering a weird bridal vortex of solipsism and because, as the wedding drew near, it became clear that this was pretty much entirely untrue. In the best possible way, our wedding wasnât about usâit was stitched together from what all three sides of our family (two being mine, since my parents are divorced) wanted and valued. It was about honoring thousands of years of Jewish tradition and providing some nachas, the Yiddish term for parental joy, to our parents, grandparents, and other assorted relatives and guests. The most basic parental dictum we heeded was no shellfish and no meat to meet my parentsâ dietary restrictions, even though neither my husband nor I keep kosher or are vegetarians. If I had my druthers, might I have wanted a raw bar and beef short ribs as the entrÃ©e? Probably. But I decided to cut my losses on that one, and never regretted it.
Today June 19, 2013 marks the day my mother and father would have been married to each other for 47 years. My dad passing in May 2011 robbed them of year 46 and 47. They essentially lived together longer than they lived apart. They weathered every type of life event as a team, as a unit (albeit not always agreeing on everything) and tackled their experiences as a collective force. It is still hard for my mother to live on this planet without the comfort and mere physical presence of my father. Their relationship has also made me look at my own marriage and that of my contemporaries and wonder whether my union stands up to the same rigorous and unfaltering standards.
I think my parents (and so many of their generation) got married for very different reasons than so many of us do today. They were bound by this sense of duty and commitment to uphold the traditions of their families. I don't think they had much choice in the matter and yet, as several of their friends and even close relatives threw in the towel in the early 80â²s, my parents remained solid, strong and committed. It was almost as though they were tethered to each other through some sort of magnetic attraction. Believe me their marriage was full of flaws and yet being married 14 years I now see their love much more clearly. I now have such a deeper appreciation for their ability to remain so convicted and allied to one another -- through periods that would test the endurance of any relationship.
I watched my mother sit by my father's hospital bedside for hours on end during his final days just singing to him in the hopes that perhaps he'd be able to hear her. And in those moments that seemed like the purest of love transpiring between them I also remembered the darker moments when they fought and seemed at such opposite ends of the spectrum that no amount of love could possibly bind them back to one another. Yet they stayed together for 45 years despite the differences and challenges their relationship held. I think back to when those dark moments seemed as though they'd envelop my parents whole and break them apart and how their allegiance to one another never wavered. Their devotion to one another has forced me to look at my own marriage and whether it too could sustain a lifetime.
I wonder if my marriage has the same longevity and do we even regard marriage and our loyalty to it in the same fierce way our parents did ?
I had promised myself I wouldnât become one of âthoseâ brides. The ones on the TV shows that my mom calls me to complain about.
