CHRYSSIE’S BRIDAL FAQS
GETTING TO YOUR APPOINTMENT
ABOUT YOUR APPOINTMENT
Yes! We want to serve you in the best way possible and give you the attention that you deserve. Our space in Chryssie’s is limited to a certain number of changing rooms and we prioritize by appointment. This way, we can give you individualized attention when choosing your wedding gown or bridesmaid gown.
Yes! For a general rule, you want to limit your shopping guests to one or two people whose opinions mean most to you. Too many opinions can be very confusing.
A consultant will take bust, waist and hip measurements before determining a size. To ensure the best fit, we’ll likely ask you to try on our samples. Unlike a dress off-the-rack from Nordstrom’s, these will not fit like a glove initially. Alterations are almost always needed to adjust the gown to fit perfectly – which always our goal!
We recommend brides not bringing any more than 6 guests with them for a bridal consultation. If you need to bring additional guests, please let us know when you make your appointment. During peak hours we have limited space and seating. Bridal consultants can accommodate up to 10 bridesmaids per appointment.
We recommend that you order your Wedding Gown at least 8 – 10 months before your wedding.
Your Bridesmaids dresses should be ordered at least 6 months before your wedding date. Once all girls have been measured for sizing, and paid their deposits, then the complete order is placed.
Wedding gowns range from $500 to $2500. Bridesmaids gowns range from $150 to $400.
Yes. Sizing for bridal attire tends to run much smaller than regular clothing. Most women need to go up at least a size or two to accommodate the smaller sizing. We will take your measurements and determine your size according to a size chart provided by that particular designer. We try to match your measurements as close as possible to the designers’ standard size chart. Alterations can then be made, if necessary.
