We are open 10 am - 6pm seven days a week
Closed Easter Sunday, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Our Designers page has a full list of collections that we carry, and our dresses page shows many of the designs we have in store.
We do not allow champagne in the store. We wish we could, but we hope that you will understand our following reasons:
- 1) WE DO NOT ALLOW any food or drink in the store. We want to protect the gowns that brides have purchased and are having fittings on in the store.
- 2) We also want to protect our sample gowns in the store, so that brides can try on nice and clean dresses.
- 3) We do not have a liquor license and we don’t want to break the law, even if you bring your own, it would still not be legal.
- 4) We want our brides to make an informed choice and order the dress of their dreams – if your judgment is clouded that may not be the case and we cannot cancel your order once it is placed.
After you have chosen your gown, we will be happy to make recommendations for you to celebrate at one of the many great local bars or restaurants in the area.
- We try to show as many of our gowns as we can on our website, but we do offer some other gowns and a lot of custom options - whether that is adding sleeves, religious coverings or changing a neckline. Most needs can be met.
- We can also borrow some styles in from our designers for you to try if we do not have them in store.
- Please refer to the individual designers websites to see their entire collections.
- Borrowing in fees will apply and we usually need about 2-3 week notice depending on the gown you want to see.
Appointments are HIGHLY recommended.
Most weekends and some weekdays we are often fully booked. We would hate for you and your guests to be disappointed when you arrive without an appointment and we are unable to help.
Each bride is allocated her own personal dressing room and consultant, and if you arrive without an appointment there is no guarantee you will be able to try on dresses, as the dressing rooms may already be booked or in use by other brides. We will always give as much help as possible to every person who walks into the boutique and you are always welcome to come in and look at our gowns. However, if you want to try on bridal gowns please call us in advance and make an appointment to avoid disappointment.
Our appointments are anywhere between 90 minutes and 2 hours long. We will usually have appointments immediately before and immediately after your appointment, so should you arrive early or late, we may not be able to assist you as much as we would like.
To make your appointment click here.
If for any reason you cannot make your appointment, don't be shy! Please let us know as soon as possible, as we may have other brides on our waiting list who are excited to see our gowns too!
PLEASE NOTE THAT FOOD AND DRINKS ARE NOT PERMITTED IN THE STORE.
At Mariée we focus on beautiful gowns with excellent quality. Gowns run between $2000 -$6500. We do also have a sample sale section in the store where you can buy gowns off the rack for a discounted price.
We kindly request that you bring no more than 3-4 guests.. If you wish to bring more guests we will always do our very best to accommodate you, but please tell us in advance so we can arrange extra seating for you. From experience, we have found that more than 4 guests can also make things confusing for you, with so many different opinions – but the choice is completely up to you!
If you need to bring more than four people please let us know as each dressing room area only has seating for four guests, and although it will be a bit cozy we will see if we can find a couple of extra chairs!
We love children, but if possible we ask that you make alternative arrangements for young children, as due to the nature of our gowns and the possibility that brides may be having fittings on their actual gowns, there may be pins, needles and scissors within reach of tiny hands - ouch!
Whatever your dress size is, do not worry.
Like most bridal stores, the sample dresses that we carry in the store are bridal size 10, (which is close to a regular size 6) and we know that most our of brides are bigger or smaller than this.
If this size is too big or small it will be expertly pinned to fit. We have 15 years of experience in showing our brides how their gown will look once it is in your size.
As is true of the majority of bridal stores, your consultant will clip each gown to show it much closer to your body size and shape. We are able to order a size 0- 22 on most styles that we carry.
We also have a selection of gowns sized 16-18 to try on.
It is not uncommon for you to say yes to your dress at your first appointment at Mariée, so it's good to know what to expect:
If you find a dress that you want to order, we measure you and work out your size from the designers size chart so that we can get a gown made just for you.
o We will also take you through all the choices of color, fabric, and customization options to ensure you get your perfect dress.
We will also take your deposit of 50% at that time and provide you with your contract and terms and conditions that your consultant will go through with you and your order will be placed that day.
Once you place your order your bridal gown will be made and will arrive in our salon several months later.
o You will then have alterations on the gown to achieve an absolutely perfect fit.
When you decide on a gown, a minimum 50% non-refundable deposit is made. Please note we do not allow refunds, cancellations, exchanges or returns. This is because the fabric is cut when we place the order with the designer. The balance is due when the gown is delivered to our store. We will call you to let you know that it is here and you will need to pay the balance within 14 days after we call or upon the first alterations, whichever comes first.
Alterations cannot occur on a gown until the gown is paid for in full.
If an “off the rack” gown is purchased, it must be paid in full at the time of purchase, as you will be taking it with you that day.
Our fastest designer takes around 4 months and our longest designer takes about 5 1/2 months (without rush fees). Ideally you don’t want the gown to arrive any later than 8 weeks before the wedding date, as you will need to allow time for alterations. We recommend you order your gown no later than 8 months before your wedding date if possible.
There are two options if you need your gown quicker than standard delivery time:
Off the rack:
We are often able to sell you a gown off the rack so you would be able to take it with you the same day. Our samples are typically bridal size 10, (close to a size 6) and we do have some larger sizes too, but we can make gowns smaller or larger through alterations.
You could also pay a rush fee, but even with a rush fee 8 weeks is about the fastest we can get a gown made, and it is not always available depending on a particular designer’s workload.
A rush fee is the fee the designer charges to complete the gown in a shorter amount of time than usual. Rush fees vary from designer to designer, but are typically 10-20% of the cost of the gown. You would only need to pay a rush fee if you needed your gown quicker than the standard 3-6 months. To avoid the rush fees we recommend you order your gown no later than 8 months before your wedding date. That allows time for the gown to be made and alterations to take place.
No, alterations are a separate charge.
Bridal gowns are ordered in the closest standard size to your size, so alterations vary from bride to bride and dress to dress.
A bride who is very tall will not need the same hem as a bride who is petite, and a bride who is a pear shape will need very different alterations to a bride who has a more athletic build.
We do have alterations experts who work out of our store, but you are free to use anybody that you would like for alterations. Please feel free to ask about alteration costs at your appointment.
Our gowns are made to order and can be customized either though the designer or through our alterations experts. Just let us know what you are looking for during your appointment and we can show you examples of our past work.
Whether you buy your bridal gown from our boutique or another bridal store, we HIGHLY recommend you never buy your wedding gown online, it is simply never worth the risk. You are not simply buying a dress, you are buying a service and the knowledge that you are working with professionals who you can trust. None of our designers permit their wedding gowns to legitimately be sold online.
We hear countless stories about brides who buy a wedding gown online in an attempt to save money and end up heartbroken as the gown is a forgery, or damaged, or not the size they were expecting, or has been altered so it is no longer the size it once was.
There really is no substitute for ordering your bridal gown through a store, who is an authorized retailer of the designer you wish to buy (they will be listed on each designer's website).
All of our gowns are already priced at the lowest price permitted by the designer, so if you cannot afford a particular dress we simply recommend you find a different dress, whether it is in our boutique or another bridal shop.
We would love to feature you on our gallery page! Send your favorite three images to us and title your email "Gallery Submission".
Although we cannot feature every bride here is what we are looking for:
1) Three hi-res images from your wedding showing your gown (we will pick one)
2) No watermarks
3) Please get your photographer's permission as we cannot give credit in the gallery.
The alterations that you have on your gown are just as important as the gown that you choose. Ivory Row is a full service bridal store, meaning that you are not alone when the alterations process starts. We will be with you every step of the way, from the moment you say “yes to the dress” until you said “I do”.
With this is mind here is a quick guide to what to expect…
- Most brides will need alterations of some sort; the cost will vary from style to style and bride to bride. Your consultant can give you guidelines at your appointment. If you decide not to work with one of the ladies that we recommend for any reason you do not have to. It’s totally up to you.
- You will know that you are in safe hands, as our recommended seamstresses come to our store to meet with you for each fitting.
- Typically you will come to fittings 3-4 times to achieve a perfect fit
- Looking to change a neckline or add straps or sleeves? No problem! Our experienced seamstresses will talk you through all the options before you start.
- Your seamstress will give you an alterations quote that is itemized and in writing at the start, so there are no surprises.
- Pressing and steaming options are also available, just ask when you start fitting.
- You pay your seamstress directly at the end when all the work is completed.
If you have any additional questions please let us know by calling 623-328-9180
Please note that we cannot do fittings of any kind on gowns that were not purchased at Ivory Row. We also do not alter bridesmaid’s gowns here at the store, but are happy to recommend someone who can.
