Most brides order their bridal gown 9 - 12 months out in order to ensure a relaxing process prior to the big day. Delivery times for bridal gowns are typically 4 - 6 months. Rush options are sometimes available for an additional charge. In addition, you need to make time for alterations, which can take 1 - 3 months, and allow some buffer for any delays.

Unfortunately, no. As dresses are special ordered, all sales are final. There are no cancellations, returns, or exchanges.
Erika’s Bridal Couture carries an edited selection of each designer’s collection. During trunk shows, we have a larger selection of dresses in store from a specific designer and typically offer a designer discount for gown orders placed during the show. The trunk show usually takes place during the weekend, and spots fill up quickly. We recommend reserving a spot early for our trunk shows.
