What size are your wedding gowns?
We fit real brides in real sizes and our samples are sized from size 4-28.
Do you rent wedding gowns?
No. We find that most often this question arises because we’ve found some clients believe with such a nice store and over the top service they cannot afford a dress purchase from us. But this simply isn't so. Our bridesmaids gowns are priced between $115 - $210. And you can get a nice wedding gown for under $500. We do however rent tuxedos and suits very affordably and it's easy to get your out of town attendants measured.
How long does it take to get a dress?
A wedding dress takes about 3 months. With that being said, some of the most popular sizes and styles are available more quickly. Customizations will take longer. You can be comfortable knowing that your Savvi stylist will provide you with all the details you need about your wedding dress. If you're having wedding portraits taken in advance, be sure to factor that into when you order your dress.

A bridesmaids dress takes between 2-3 months.
Do you offer alterations in store?
No, but we can provide you with a list of local professionals whom have provided our brides with excellent service in the past.

Our business hours are Monday-Friday, 10:00 am - 7:00 pm; Saturday, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm. We are closed on Sunday.

Tuesday afternoons and Wednesdays are the best time to avoid crowds.
What should I expect during a wedding gown appointment? What should I bring?
Bring with you: well fitted, complete undergarments, shoes the height you will be wearing for your wedding day, and champagne if you like.

We encourage you to bring 2 or 3 of your most trusted family or friends whose feedback means the most to you. Wedding gown shopping is fun and you'll be in a comfortable space assigned to a stylist that is well versed on styling different shapes and sizes and whom considers your entire wedding day vision.
