We currently do not charge for appointments. However, we have implemented a $50 cancellation fee for appointments cancelled less than 48 hours in advance or if you fail to show up for your scheduled visit.
You will be required to provide your card information upon booking your bridal appointment.
Appointments are required to ensure there is a fitting room available and that you get the most out of your shopping experience. Upon booking, we will ask to hold a card on file. Your card will ONLY be charged if your appointment is cancelled less than 48 hours before your scheduled visit or if you fail to show up for your appointment.
For the safety of our guests, we have staggered our appointment times to prevent overcrowding in the common areas.
We also allow more time in between appointments for cleaning and sanitization as well as easily-accessible sanitizer in each fitting room.
Thankfully our store was originally designed for large, private appointments so we have not needed to limit group sizes to account for social distancing.
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!
Once your gown/veil arrives, we will lightly steam your items at no charge. However, it is very likely that additional steaming may be needed after alterations have been completed. You may pay for additional steaming for $75.
If you purchased your gown elsewhere, we are happy to providing a steaming service for $75.
Our Georgetown store does not provide in-house alterations. However, we have extremely talented local seamstresses that we will recommend upon your purchase.
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. Gowns that are not picked up within 30 days from arrival (or from purchase date for layaway), will incur a monthly storage fee of $50 per month.
Our store is about 30 miles north of downtown Austin.
Yes! We have a diverse selection of plus size gowns that is constantly expanding! Feel free to reach out to us personally and we will send you photos before your appointment of the plus size gowns we currently have in stock!
Yes! You can purchase a preservation kit any time for $299. The kit includes shipping container, order form, pre-paid shipping label, and tape to seal the box shut. Service includes cleaning, preservation and shipping both ways of your gown and up to five accessories. Backed with a 100 year guarantee.
Brides enjoy 90 minute appointments with a personal stylist and private fitting area.
Our gowns range from $1,500-$6,000 with the majority falling between $1,500 and $2,500. 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!
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 8 to 24, 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.
