We don’t really offer these…

Though there are several things that brides can do to prepare themselves for a bridal appointment, which could be anything from wearing nude underwear to having any shapewear with them that they may intend to wear on the wedding day, to having their wedding shoes or having their hair and makeup similar to their wedding day look, none of these are absolutely necessary. The best thing any bride can do to prepare for their bridal appointment is to arrive about 5 to 10 minutes before their appointment time. This will allow the bride the ability to find parking and calmly locate the showroom. A rushed bride is a stressed bride, and that can make it hard to enjoy the experience.

Our dresses in our showroom can range from $800 to $3,500.

Typically, here at Jana Ann Couture, we sell our dresses as ready-to-purchase, meaning that they are available directly off-the-rack. However, the option to special order a gown in a standard size or to order a custom gown is available as well. Your bridal stylist can discuss with you which option is best based off of your budget and timeline.

As previously mentioned, the bulk of our dresses are available to purchase directly off-the-rack. This means that when you find the one, and say yes, your dress goes home with you that same day! If you are on a payment plan, going with custom sizing, or going fully custom, someone from the team will contact you when it is time to schedule pickup for your dress.

The alterations process can be an involved process, usually ranging from 2 to 4 fittings. So, for our in-town brides, we offer in-house alterations, which are always a separate cost from the dress. We like to be able to offer this to alleviate some of the stress of looking for a reliable and reputable seamstress, but our brides are always welcome to take their dress to whomever they feel most comfortable working with.

Though we do not offer gown cleaning and preservation, we can always help point you in the direction of a few places that do!
