Shopping Experience

To Our Brides,

At Designer Loft we are passionate about providing you a guided yet pressure free shopping experience. We realize every bride responds differently to the wedding experience, so whether you’re decisive on your first appointment or are overwhelmed after a flurry of stops, we will do our best to guide you to your dream dress.

Shopping at Designer Loft

Please book your appointment in advance, especially during trunk show weekends, which fill up quickly. The average purchase-to-arrival time for new bridal gowns is five to six months with an additional two to three months or more recommended for fittings.

Rush brides: We do have special TO GO selections for you! We do work with designers who may have certain styles in stock immediately. However, this may limit your size, color and style selections- so we do recommend ordering at least 12 months out whenever possible

Confirm your appointment so that we can accommodate you accordingly as well as your guests.

Bring pictures. It can help us to assist you.
Share your visions, questions, concerns, and budget with us— it will make the process easier for you. Designer Loft also allows you to take pictures in our gowns so you will see how certain styles photograph.

A suggestion about underpinnings– SPANX, neutral-colored undergarments, and a sturdy strapless bra will be really helpful. Excellent alterations are available. Our seamstresses are creative and can customize to make your desired dress work.
Once you have purchased your gown:

Discuss your delivery date with your Designer Loft consultant to make sure everything is set.

Call for updates, but we promise we will let you know the minute your dress has arrived. We know how excited you are!

Fittings are regularly Monday-Friday, 11 am-6pm. Please arrange your fitting via phone or email. We can accomodate weekend fittings, schedule permitting and must be scheduled in advance with seamstress.

Alterations are up to $500 for basic alterations (cups, bustle, hemline, seam adjustment). Major changes will be more expensive. Everything will be discussed at the time of your fitting so all is clear.

Don’t forget your shoes and undergarments for your seamstress fittings. Try to approximate what you will wear on your wedding day, in terms of heel height and undergarments.

Accessories:

Designer Loft has a full line of bridal accessories, including custom veils, shrugs, jewelry, hair accessories, and more.
