We recommend that our brides make an  appointment.  We love to celebrate our brides and making an appointment allows us to personalize her experience from the minute she walks in our store.  

We require that all brides wear underwear (sound crazy we know that we have to say that!) and suggest that they bring a pair of shoes that represent the heel height they will wear on their big day.  

During these days of COVID we are allowing the bride to bring 4 guests.  We are blessed with a private party room that can be rented for a fee if a bride would like to bring additional guests.  This room holds up to 12 people.  Please contact the store for details.  

No need! At DownTown Gowns we provide complimentary cookies and beverages for our brides and her guests! 

Of course it is up to the bride whether to invite children to her appointment; however during this continuing pandemic we are discouring children and elderly people coming to our store.  Our typical bridal appointment is 2 1/2 hours and usually that is difficult for children. 

We suggest 9 to 10 months in advance, however, we have been able to accomodate brides with a shorter time span when needed.

Yes, a bride can always cancel her appointment.  We do appreciate it if the bride lets us know as soon as possible.

Set your budget, think of attributes you would like in your dress, stay calm, enjoy every moment of your appointment and let the magic happen!

We carry all sizes from 0 to 32!  Generally bridal dresses are 2 sizes smaller than ready to wear clothing.  It is just a number ladies!

Either! Most wedding dresses are special order if time allows.  As a general rule it takes 4 to 5 months for a special order dress to arrive at our store. In addition we always have dresses available for same day sales as well!
