Q: Do I need to make an appointment?
A: Because Beausoleil wants to give you the full attention of our experienced bridal stylists, appointments are highly recommended.
Q: Do I need to make an appointment for my Bridesmaids to try on gowns?
A: Preferably, especially if a group is coming together so we are able to help your ladies. But walk-ins are always welcome.
Q: How long are appointments?
A: We schedule 2-hour time slots for first time bridal gown shoppers. Others may be shorter depending on the type of appointment.
Q: What should I bring to my appointment?
A: It helps to wear a good strapless bra when trying on wedding gowns, and bringing in pictures of the types of dresses you like helps your stylist match the look you’re interested in. An open mind: Don’t be surprised if you find “the dress” on your first visit to Beausoleil and it has a completely different look than what you expected to wear.
Q: Who should I bring to my appointment?
A: Bring the people whose opinions you value the most and will be supportive and positive in helping you find your gown. Having more than 3 people at your appointment can sometimes be very overwhelming and take the focus off you. Children will get bored very quickly, we suggest that if you must bring them, have something quiet for them to sit and do during your appointment.
Q: Is food and drink allowed in the store?
A: To help us keep the merchandise clean, as well as the areas that gowns are tried on, we ask that food or drink be left out of the store.
Q: Can we bring Champagne in the store?
A: Although we love that bridal parties want to celebrate, Beausoleil Bridal is not licensed to have alcohol be served in the store.
Q: How far in advance do I need to buy my wedding gown?
A: The gown chosen by the bride will often set the style for the wedding and should be one of the first decisions made during the planning process. Traditional time lines suggest 9 to 12 months in advance.
Q: When should I expect my gown to arrive?
A: Designer gowns can take nearly 6 months to ship to our store although many gowns can ship quicker and can arrive in as little as 2 weeks. We also have dresses that can be purchased without ordering.
Q: What are price ranges for our gowns?
A: Our approximate range is from $200 to $2200.
Q: When should I order my headpiece or veil?
A: Special order veils and headpieces can take up to 3 months to arrive, so making that decision at the time you order your gown is suggested.
Q: When shall I schedule my first fitting?
A: We generally recommend 2 months before your event. Summer is very busy, so we suggest brides schedule appointments early.
Q: What should I bring to my first fitting?
A: Your undergarments (i.e. bra, slip, body shapers) and the shoes you will be wearing with your gown.
Q: Will you ship my gown out of state for me?
A: We can ship dresses anywhere in the U.S. Shipping and handling fees will apply.
