Thankfully our store was already designed for large, private appointments so we do not need to put a limit on group sizes. However, we always recommend bringing just a few of your closest friends and family as to not become overwhelmed with too many opinions!
We will steam your gown and veil before your final fitting for no charge. We can steam your gown and veil again for $75 if you would like to bring your gown back for a last minute steam before the wedding.
Unfortunately, we only alter bridal gowns that were purchased from us. Our seamstresses are familiar with our designer’s gowns and are comfortable altering them to ensure the best fit. We want to make sure there is plenty of room in their schedule to help the brides who find their gown with us!

We carry gowns that range from $1,500-$12,000 with the majority falling between $1,500 and $3,000. Off-the-rack gowns may be found for under $1,500 during special promotions.
A sample sale is when we sell our gowns right off the rack at a discounted rate of 30%-70% off!
We carry bridal gowns and bridal accessories. At Coreena’s, it is all about the bride! We want to make sure we have narrowed down the best selection of dresses for our brides. We also offer convenient, in-house alterations as well as wedding gown preservation kits.
We require a 50% deposit when ordering your gown. Since all orders are custom made, no cancellations, changes, or refunds can be made after deposit is paid. The remaining balance is due 3 months from when the gown was purchased. All gowns not picked up within 30 days from the day it arrives (or the 3 month mark for layaway items) will incur a $30 monthly storage fee until alterations are scheduled to begin. The full balance of the gown must be paid before alterations begin.
Comfortable undergarments, preferably nude. Strapless bras are encouraged, however, most of our gowns have support already built into the dress. If you intend to wear heels on your wedding day, it is best to bring a pair that are close in height. Lastly, bring your closest family members and friends!
It is recommended not to bring a large group to avoid too many conflicting opinions as this can make decision-making difficult. Two to three family members/close friends are encouraged. This typically makes for an emotional and intimate shopping process as you find the dress of your dreams!
You never know when you might find the ONE, so we recommend bringing anyone that is important in your decision process!
Not necessary! We’ve got you covered! Our shop offers all of the essentials for a memorable experience. After all, it is your special day!
Of course, if there is something in particular you would like to drink you are more than welcome to bring it!
Absolutely! Feel free to tag us now that you’ve said yes to your dream dress! #2ndYes #coreenasbridal We’d also love for you to send us your wedding photos for a chance to be featured on our social media pages!
Since the pandemic, timelines for ordering have increased. Gowns are custom made to order and therefore the production process typically takes 6-8 months, but some designers offer a rush delivery at an additional charge. In addition, you should allow 2-3 months for alterations. We recommend ordering your gown no later than 12 months before your wedding (or bridal portraits) to allow enough time for ordering a custom length which will ultimately save you up to $1000 on alterations.
The short answer: the earlier you order your gown, the better!
Our sample gowns range from sizes 4 to 28, with the majority being sizes 10-14. Dresses that are too large or too small are clipped for best fit. Keep in mind that bridal gowns typically run two to three sizes smaller than everyday clothing. In other words, a size 4 in normal wear could be a size 8-10 in bridal.
We currently do not charge for cancelled appointments. However, all appointments must be confirmed 24 hours in advance.
No, alterations will be a separate charge.
On average, bridal alterations typically range from $300-$800. Custom work can cost more.
