Frequently Asked Questions
At J. Major’s Bridal Boutique, we use our expertise to make your bridal gown shopping experience easy, fun, and stress-free. We understand that you may have questions before you arrive and we’re here to answer those for you. Below is a list of FAQs that will help you understand everything you need to know before your appointment. We look forward to having you in our boutique!
Are you by appointment only?
Yes, we are by appointment only. We suggest making your appointment at least 1-2 weeks in advance to ensure that we can accommodate your desired appointment time. To schedule an appointment, you can call, email or request your appointment online.
How far in advance should I order my gown?
We suggest ordering your wedding gown 7-8 months prior to your wedding date. Most designers have a lead-time of 4-6 months and alterations can take between 4-8 weeks depending on the extent of your alterations.
How many people can I bring with me?
We encourage you to bring two to three of your closest family or friends. Consider bringing only those whose opinions truly matter to you. As the experts, we have found that larger groups tend to overwhelm the bride and we want you to feel relaxed and stress-free! If you would like to bring a larger group, please call the boutique. We will try our best to accommodate you and your party.
How long is my appointment?
We offer you up to an hour and a half for your appointment. During your appointment, you will work with a professional bridal consultant who will lead you through the entire process. Your stylist will guide you with their knowledge of each designer, style, and fit. We want your experience to be one that is enjoyable, fun and relaxing!
What is the price range of your gowns?
Our gowns range from $1,200 to $5,000.
We also currently have a rack of sample sale gowns marked at $500, $1000, $1500, or $2000.
What should I wear to my appointment?
We encourage you to come to our boutique with an open mind! We recommend that you wear white or nude undergarments to your appointment. If you would like to wear shapewear with your gown, you are more than welcome to bring your own with you.
Do you offer in-house alterations?
We do not offer in-house alterations. However, we have a long-standing relationship with a local seamstress who has worked with our brides for many years.
