Even if your wedding is over a year away, it's important to begin your gown search as soon as possible. Some gown manufacturers can take as long as 6 months from the time your order is placed until it arrives in our salon. After that point, we prefer to have at least 6-8 weeks for any necessary alterations. If you are in a time crunch, don't worry - we have several options that will allow you to get the gown of your dreams in time for your wedding day! If you want to avoid any unnecessary stress and fees that come from rush ordering a gown, we recommend ordering 8-10 months in advance.
Choosing your bridal gown is a big decision! We strive to provide the most comfortable and relaxing environment for you to make this decision, and your appointment is always private. We are a cozy salon and we recommend that you bring 2-4 close and trusted opinions to ensure that your voice and vision are clear and respected.
Although we love kids, due to the delicate nature of our inventory, we ask that you please leave younger children at home with a babysitter.
Wear comfortable undergarments, such as neutral seamless panties/shapewear and a strapless bra. Our gowns feature very high quality bodice structure, so while a strapless bra isn't always necessary to wear with your bridal gown, you may wear one for your comfort while trying on gowns.
We also recommend bringing some shoes that are about the same heel height that you plan to wear on your wedding day. Because we offer custom length services, we can measure your gown length at the time we place your order to ensure that your gown is custom-made to your height - no expensive hem alterations required!
We are a private bridal salon and operate by appointment only. We do this to ensure that each bride and client receives our undivided attention and has complete privacy during their gown shopping experience. Walk-in clients may be accepted if time and staff allow, but please call ahead to ensure that we can accommodate you.
If for any reason you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, we respectfully request that you do so via e-mail at least 24 hours in advance. We often times have a wait list, and your advance notice allows us to properly accommodate another bride in a timely manner.
Our designer gowns range in price from $799 to $2200 for special orders. We often happily offer our samples for sale at a discounted price, and because we treat our samples with the greatest of care, you can rest assured that you are purchasing a pristine and like-new gown.
One of our main goals here at Tour of Elegance is to give you as close to a perfect fit as possible from the moment your gown order is placed. We do this by working with designers who offer different customizing options, such as custom length and custom measurements. While the majority of our bridal gowns are ordered to the designer's own size chart, the gown length is completely customized to your height with your shoes. We offer this service for a nominal fee to allow you the comfort of a perfect length and to save you on additional alterations. We also carry many gowns that have corset back closures, which ensures a perfect fit every time.
We currently offer alteration services based on availability. Please contact us with any alteration inquiries.
