WHY DO YOU CHARGE AN APPOINTMENT FEE AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

We charge a non-refundable $85 appointment fee at booking. 100% of this fee is donated to the following social justice organizations: SUMMAEVERYTHANG, Planned Parenthood, Marsha P. Johnson Institute, Asian American Legal Defense Fund, and BLM Los Angeles

 

DO I NEED TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT IF I JUST WANT TO BROWSE?  

Yes! Due to our location and style of service, we only allow for visitors by-appointment. Please respect our time and the time of others by resisting the urge to come unannounced. 

 

DO I NEED TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT IF I’M NOT A BRIDE? 

Yes!  We only allow for visitors by-appointment. 

 

DO YOU HAVE A WAITLIST? 

We do not keep a waitlist. If you see that the salon is booked when you'd like to come in, please keep checking the site and/or our Instagram Stories (where we will post last minute cancellation notifications) for any spots that might become available.

Cancellations at the salon are rare, and we recommend booking the next available date. 

 

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN I BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?

We have a STRICT TWO ADDITIONAL GUEST policy. For every additional guest, we charge $25 per head. If you know ahead of your appointment that you plan to bring additional guests, please let us know and we can complete your extra charge ahead of time. Otherwise, we will charge your card at the start of your appointment.

 

CAN MY FRIENDS TRY ON DRESSES TOO, EVEN THOUGH I’M THE BRIDE?

Yes, absolutely. Though we only allow one in the dressing room at a time. We recommend booking two appointments if more than two people want to try on.

 

DO YOU DO ALTERATIONS? ARE ALTERATIONS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

We do not offer alterations but we will happily recommend our favorite seamstresses in town.

Alterations are not included in the price of a dress.

 

CAN I BRING MY DOG TO THE APPOINTMENT?

We ask that you kindly leave your pet at home. No exceptions.

 

CAN I BRING CHAMPAGNE AND SNACKS TO MY APPOINTMENT?

Please refrain from bringing booze and food. We provide water and canned refreshments!
