Most brides order their bridal gown 9-12 months out in order to ensure a relaxing process prior to the big day. Most bridesmaid groups order their dresses 6-8 months out, again, in order to ensure a relaxing process. Delivery times for bridesmaid dresses are typically 12-18 weeks, and 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 and give some buffer for any delays.
During the dress shopping process, you may want to bring along any undergarments that you require (strapless bra, spanx, etc.). Additionally, you may want to bring any pictures of gowns for inspiration of what you might be looking for, check out our Pinterest page for our current inventory.
YES! It is best to order all bridesmaid dresses from the same location to guarantee matching dye lots & to take advantage of designer quantity discounts. All we need is bust, waist & hip measurements, and height with heels, to determine what size to order.
All orders come to the store for delivery and inspection. After confirming your order is complete, we can ship anywhere in the continental United States for a $10 fee. We do call and confirm the address it will be sent to, and upon delivery the dress will need to be signed for.
We do not specifically carry MOB/MOG Dresses. We have dressed mothers from our collection of Dessy bridesmaid styles, but only if you are looking for a simple dress.
Appointments are preferred for dress ordering/fittings. Fittings/measurements are complimentary when ordering your dress at Erika’s Bridal Couture. If you will not be ordering a dress/gown at the time of your fitting, a $10 fitting fee will be charged.
We do not have an in-house seamstress, however, we have a wonderful referral list of highly regarded seamstresses in the Fox Cities area. All of the seamstresses listed are well-established, and have experience working on Erika’s Bridal Couture dresses.
Our alterations referral list is provided to our brides and bridesmaids upon ordering.
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.
