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 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!
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.
What is the price range of your gowns?
Our gowns range from $1,200 to $5,500.
We also currently have a rack of sample sale gowns marked at $350, $500, $1000, $1500, or $2000.
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.
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.
What sizes do you offer?
We carry one sample of each gown ranging in sizes 8 -14, with majority of samples being bridal sizes 10 -12. Bridal sizing run differently than street sizing and varies with each designer. With our gowns being samples, we understand our gowns will not fit perfect for most. Our stylist are trained to use clips and other tools to help bring your vision of what the gown will look like to life! If you have any questions about sizing, please call our boutique and we'd be more than happy to help!
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.
Do you have free parking?
We have free 3 hour parking in the garage right next to our boutique! The address is 1910 South Blvd. Please bring in your ticket and we can validate it for your appointment!
Do you allow pets?
We adore all animals, but unfortunately light colored gowns do not work well together with pets. We kindly ask that you do not bring any animals to your appointment.
Do you have a cancellation policy?
There is no fee to book your appointment. However, we do hold a card on file and you will only be charged the $50 fee if you cancel within 48 hours of your appointment or no show. To avoid the cancellation fee please cancel your appointment at least 2 days prior to your appointment.
Do you offer champagne?
While we do love some bubbly we do not offer champagne during your appointment. You are more than welcome to bring your own champagne with you! We do ask that you refrain from bringing red wine, coffee or any other beverages that can stain our gowns into the boutique.
