More to Know:
Be sure to bring someone to help you search for dresses and try them on. This sale will be a bit more self serve than usual. We WILL have consultants on hand to help put the dresses back and answer any questions you might have, but they will not be able to come into the room with you to help you get dressed. There will be no seating for guests, so we recommend that you do not bring more than 2 people with you.
Each bride will be given 60 minutes to gather dresses and try them on. You can try on as many as you like in that amount of time, but you may only take 3 dresses into the room at a time.
Gowns must be paid in full and taken with you at the time of purchase. We accept Visa, MasterCard and Cash. No checks. Unfortunately, we cannot store your dress here, but you may bring it back, if you choose to tailor your gown at CBB. You can begin the tailoring process as early as you like, but no later than 2 months before your wedding.
Garment bags available for purchase.
