FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When do I need to book my appointment?
For alterations, as soon as you purchase your gown. Do not wait until it comes in if you order it, contact us as soon as you know what dress you're wearing. For custom and vintage we ask to contact us ASAP so we can make sure we book with enough time for your specific project.
How long does it take?
NEW POLICY* - Starting with Alterations brought in in November, we are switching from "sew by wedding date" to a strict turn around for all gowns. This starts the day you bring it in and will vary depending on need. (Standard alterations 3-4 weeks, significant adjustments 6-7 weeks, vintage overhaul 9-10 weeks, custom 12-13 weeks)
How much do alterations usually run?
Every bride is different, and thus every gown and body needs different adjustments. We are happy to give you an estimate if you email or text us photos and details of what you know needs done. Most average $350-$800. Details like beading and lace will generally be on the higher end of pricing as they'll often take more time to work with. We now offer two package prices for easy planning. Pricing can be found on each service page.
Do you Dye gowns?
Yes! We can dye ombre or entire gowns as long as they are of quality fabrics and construction. Please contact us about pricing and details for your vision.
How do I pay?
We take Credit Card, Cash, and Check. In order to start anything we require 65% deposit down for ala carte alterations and 50% deposit down for Packages/Vintage/Custom/Dye.
Where are you located? Is there Parking?
We are located on the main floor in the historic Alaska Center building in Downtown Boise. We are off 10th and Main St. There is street parking available on both sides of the street and lots and parking garages nearby. Street parking is free on Sundays but is pay to park the rest of the week. We do not validate or refund parking at this time.
