Frequently Asked Questions
667 Deale Rd. Deale, MD 20751
Do I need to make an appointment to try on wedding dresses?
Yes, we do require an appointment to try on wedding gowns. Appointments are limited.
*We can not guarantee a time for a bridal try-on if you do not have an appointment.*
What sizes do you carry?
In store we have sizes 4-26. We can order most gowns from size 0-32. There is no BODY we can not fit.
Why do you charge a cancellation fee for your bridal appointments?
It has sadly become a necessary evil. The fee stops brides from simply not showing up. If someone decides to just not show up - we can not rebook that appointment slot, so a potential sale is lost and there will never be a chance to get that time back. You can absolutely avoid this fee by cancelling your appointment a head of time. The no show/ cancellation fee is $45.
Do you still accept wedding gowns for Consignment?
NO, WE DO NOT.
We stopped accepting gowns for consignment March 1st, 2022.
We do still sell gowns off the rack, however, we do not take used or unused wedding dresses to Consign in our store anymore!
We made the switch this year to only sell new Designer gowns that are on trend and fashion forward. Sample gowns can be purchased off the rack & taken home the same day if needed for brides with a short timeline.
Can I take my dress home the same day?
Absolutely!! We are a designer off the rack bridal shop.
We carry beautiful gowns from Justin Alexander and brides are able to take home their dress the same day and for less than what it would cost to order. Our gowns are purchased directly from the designer, THEY ARE NOT USED BRIDALS OR ON CONSIGNMENT. They are fresh in season gowns curated just for our brides at Love & Lace.
How far in advance do I need to start alterations?
We suggest that you set up your first appointment with a seamstress about 3 months before your wedding!
At your alterations appointments, be sure to have all of your undergarments with you, such as a bra, shape-wear & shoes - all will affect the fit of your gown and your seamstress may ask you to bring those items before starting alterations.
Keep in mind that you will have at least 3 appointments with a seamstress before your wedding day.
We recommend reviewing our Alterations page for more information on our preferred seamstresses.
