FAQ

Because we want your experience to be just as amazing as the wedding gown you’ll find at Ready or Knot {Wedding Chic}, here are tips for making the most of your shopping experience.

As a boutique, we are committed to the best customer service for all of our clients.  We ask for no food, drink, small children or pets to be brought to any of your appointments.  Our weekday appointments are best to accommodate larger groups and our Saturday appointments fill up the fastest, so don’t hesitate, call or email us today to find the gown you’ve dreamt of!

Do I need an Appointment?
We highly recommend appointments to try on gowns to ensure we can devote our time and space to your wedding dress search. We want to give each bride our undivided attention so we highly recommend appointments for all bridal gown and bridesmaid dress shopping. We do try to accommodate walk-ins but we give our appointments first priority and our weekends are often booked well in advance.
Do I need an appointment to look at bridesmaid dresses?
We highly recommend appointments to look at our bridesmaid dresses as there is a lot involved in finding the right bridesmaid dress for your girls. We want to make sure we have someone to walk you through all the choices and give you recommendations based on your specific bridal party needs.
What should I Bring Along?
It is helpful to bring undergarments of similar styles that you will wear on your wedding day, including strapless bras as well as Spanx, etc. Also bring heels of a height that you will wear for your wedding.
Can I bring a large party to my appointment?
We are a fun, cozy bridal boutique with limited seating so we ask that your party be three or less during your visit at Ready or Knot {Wedding Chic}. Selecting a few trusted family members or friends to help you make your decisions, rather than a large group, can make the process more enjoyable,less overwhelming, and more about YOU!
How long are appointment times?
Our appointments are 60 minutes in length. All of our dresses are available for you to browse and try on. Should you need more time, we will gladly make a follow-up appointment for review of your top selections.
What are the prices of your gowns at Ready or Knot {Wedding Chic}?
Most bridal gowns range from $1000-$5000.
You will find many of our dresses fall between $1800 and $4000. Bridesmaid gowns range from $180-$400.
When should I buy my dress?
While several of our designers can accommodate rush orders for tight timelines, the average time needed to make your dress is four months. We suggest purchasing a dress at least 6-9 months prior to your wedding date, so you have the necessary time built for fittings and styling your complete wedding look. For peace of mind, we highly recommend purchasing your gown 9-12 months before your wedding date.
How long does it take for the dress I ordered to arrive?
It typically takes approximately 4-5 months to make a dress. If you factor in shipping time, sometimes from overseas, that timeline can often be extended to 5-6 months. If you need your gown sooner there are definitely rush options but there are often rush fees associated with expedited service.
How does sizing & ordering work?
We like to order the dress as close to your current size as possible, but all bridal gowns need at least some alterations to achieve a perfect fit for your wedding day. As part of the experience at Ready or Knot {Wedding Chic} we offer alterations from an independent seamstress at the store and we will help coordinate your appointments.
I ordered my dress, now what?
Oh it’s like waiting for Christmas morning isn’t it! We know 4-5 months can seem like an eternity but we recommend using this time to look for shoes, undergarments, & accessories so you’ll be ready for your first alterations appointment. As soon as your precious package arrives we will contact you immediately so you can start the alterations process.
Do you offer alterations?
You are welcome to use the seamstress of your choice. We will happily recommend an independent seamstress based on the news of your dress!
What is a Trunk Show?
Ready or Knot {Wedding Chic} carries a select number of dresses from a group of designers. A trunk show is an opportunity for brides to see and try on a broader collection of dresses from one of their favorite designers that are not part of our daily inventory.
