wedding dress shopping tips

we can't wait to meet you!!!

If you haven't already, check out our Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook page. Make sure to follow/like! This is the best way to view our bridal gown inventory, and to get to know more about Julie's! Make sure to take screenshots of wedding dresses you LOVE so you can show your stylist. This helps to give us a feel of your style and vibe.

Be prepared to find THE ONE! This will be your second easiest YES, after your fiance. We require a 60% deposit due at the time of purchase. We accept all forms of payments. Sale dresses are required to be paid in full.

Invite your biggest supporters that will help you make a positive decision so you can say YES to the DRESS the same day as your appointment. We do not want your dream dress to slip away and discontinue if you have to wait and come back another day with more of your tribe. If you plan to bring a large group of guests, please consider booking one of our Champagne & Sweets Appointments

When should I start shopping for my wedding dress? We recommend having your wedding date and venue booked before you begin your search for a dress. It is important to know your vision and style when wedding dress shopping. Bridal gowns typically take 5-9 months to arrive, with some offering in stock options or rush. We recommend shopping at least 9-12 months before your wedding. At times Julie's does offer select gowns off the rack at a discounted price. Please call ahead of time to ensure we have samples available off the rack.

What if my size is not available for sample dresses to try on?  Don't worry darling!! We will help you envision how the dress will look on you, even if it's not the exact size. We can do some pretty magical things here at Julie's! Our stylist are experts at this and will provide an amazing experience to give you an ideal image of what your dress will looking like once it's ordered in your size.

Can I bring children to my bridal gown appointment? Although we love children, our boutique is not the place for littles. To provide the best experience for our brides we kindly ask that children not attend appointments. Newborns are an exception as we adore them! Children often get bored easily and can become a distraction. Our mirrors can easily become broken and we would hate for a child to become injured by running into the mirrors or falling off the chairs.

Can I just walk in or do I need an Appointment to try on bridal gowns?  Our boutique is by appointment only. This means we only take 1-2 appointments at a time. Being by appointment only allows us to provide the best one-on-one experience to our brides. Our brides LOVE that they have the entire store to themselves. Appointments book up very fast so we recommend booking ASAP to ensure the best day and time. Please visit our Appointment page to book your appointment. We also offer VIP Appointments!

What do I wear to try on Wedding Dresses?
For our brides we kindly ask that you wear nude seamless panties, and a nude strapless bra if you prefer. Our gowns do have build in bra cups, but if you are looking for more support then we recommend a strapless bra. If you do not wear underwear, you will not be permitted to try on any gowns and we will reschedule your appointment. Feel free to bring in a cute pair of heels, or wedges if you prefer. 

As much as we love our coffee drinks and smoothies, they just don’t mix with expensive bridal gowns. We do ask that all food and drinks, except water, be left at home. We do serve a glass of Champagne to celebrate a brides YES moment. If you book a Champagne & Sweets Appointment, we do offer sips and treats for that appointment.
