Appointment time length: Saturday appointments are an hour and a half long. If you're running late to your appointment, please give us a heads up and know your appointment will still end at the same time out of respect for the next bride. If you schedule an appointment during the week, expect to have 2 hours blocked off just for you! Things are definitely less hectic during weekdays so if you're looking for a more intimate experience, we highly suggest booking then!

After we give you a tour of the boutique, you will be given pins so you can mark each dress you want to try on! Your consultant will grab the gowns you pin and bring them to your fitting room.

What to bring: most brides-to-be will wear a strapless bra so they can see how the dresses will truly look on them. If you're not shy and want to toss your bra off to see a low or illusion back without a big strap, that's cool with us too! You can bring shoes if you want or go barefoot! If Spanx are your thing, you're more than welcome to bring a pair to toss on under the dress! We have a few styles of slips in the boutique you can try under the gowns to give them extra volume on bottom.

Feel free to bring champagne to your appointment if you want to pop some bubbly to celebrate! We will be more than happy to set it up and pour for you and your guests! If you want to bring any food items, please call ahead and check with us first.

Don't worry about sizing - we will clip the dress to make it fit your body!

If you're planning on bringing more than 4 guests, please let us know ahead of time so we can set up chairs and make sure there is room for everyone!

Finding your style: Get a sense of what style dress you want. If it's your first time trying on, we always recommend trying several different styles to determine what makes you look and feel your best. It doesn't hurt to bring pictures of dresses you find online that you love. Heck, we love a good Pinterest inspiration board! Feel free to show us your wedding color scheme and "theme", which can better help us choose dresses we think would not only look amazing on you, but fit in with your wedding perfectly! We highly suggest you check out the brands we carry {links are right here on our website!} so you can get a feel for what we have in the boutique!

Budgets: Every bride has a different budget. Our average price range at SBB is $1200-$1600 with some dresses falling below and above that range. Some dresses do go up to $3500. We highly recommend coming up with a number that you don't want to go over so we can pull dresses priced in your comfort zone! The last thing we want is a bride-to-be falling in love with a gown that is too pricey for them! It's definitely not our style to pull dresses out of a bride's budget. We want you to love everything about your dress and never want you to stress over the cost of it.

Don't Stress: Appointments can get overwhelming when a lot of opinions come into play. Remember this is YOUR day and your decision. The last thing we want to see is a bride feeling swayed into saying yes to a dress they don't truly love. Stick to your guns and remember at the end of the day, the only opinion that matters is yours!

{We have tons of accessories to try on with your favorite gowns!}

"I Got My Something New at Something Blue!": Saying "yes" is so much fun - don't forget to take your picture with our sign! Also take into consideration a lot of stores {including Something Blue} offer discounts if you say yes to the dress on your first day in the boutique. If you come in to play on the first day, we will definitely make a comeback appointment for you but you will unfortunately miss out on that perk.

{Paige said "yes" to her something new on January 6th - we are so excited for her! | Carly said yes to the dress on January 6th - congrats, girl!! | Jill picked up her gown and is heading into alterations!}

Most of all, relax and have FUN! This is one of the most exciting times of your life!

We can't wait to meet you!!
