Frequently Asked Questions
How many people can I bring to my appointment?
4 plus the bride for a Classic Bridal appointment, up to 8 for the VIP suite, and up to 10 for the book the boutique appointment.
What should I wear/bring to my appointment?
Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and beautiful. Nude undergarments are best. You can bring shoes, flowers, Mom's Veil or anything you feel will enhance your Madison Carolina Bridal experience!
When should I order my gown?
ASAP! Most brides typically start shopping for their dress about 12-15 months before their wedding. Once you've found your dream gown there is no need to wait, it's always better to plan ahead! It typically takes gowns 5-8 months to arrive once ordered depending on the designer and 2-3 months to do the alterations process. Plus, don't forget to factor in time to have your Bridal Portrait taken.
What if I don’t have enough time to order a gown?
No worries there! Madison Carolina Bridal boasts one of the largest off the rack selection of wedding gowns in the upstate. We have over 800 bridal gowns in boutique, 3 times the selection of your average bridal boutique!
What does off the rack mean?
Purchasing an “off the rack” dress means you fall in love with the dress you try on and get to take that dress home that day instead of ordering it. Off the rack gowns are often discontinued samples of designer wedding gowns which means you find a high quality dress no one else can order anymore for an amazing price!
Unlike Traditional Bridal Boutique, we will sell our samples Off the Rack to a Bride who doesn't have time to order. You have endless options to choose from.
