FAQS

Have questions? We have answers!

Do I need an appointment?

 

Yes, we operate by appointment only to ensure that we can offer a personally-tailored service to every client. In order to maintain a calm, stress-free atmosphere, the salon is not open for browsing if you do not have an appointment. Please visit our bookings page to make a date with us. We are looking forward to meeting you!

 

We can sometimes offer same-day appointments if you are in a time crunch, so please email us if you want to come visit us at the last minute, and we will do our very best to make it work!

Help! I can't find a day or time that works for me.

 

If a day or time you want isn't available, just send us an email, and we will see what we can do - we love to help! For more information about booking online, visit our bookings page to make a date with us.

 

What if I need to reschedule my appointment?

We're happy to help! Please reach out to us via the chat function, call us, or e-mail us.

Please note that we are a very small boutique, and we only see a limited number of clients each day, so we need at least 48 hours' notice on weekends and 24 hours' notice on weekdays if you can't make your original date. We are not able to offer a refund of your appointment fee if you cancel your appointment or are late letting us know because we may have already donated the appointment fee to one of our nonprofit partners, and we cannot claw back funds from them.

How many guests may I bring to my appointment?

For your sake, and to keep the appointment as intimate as possible, we limit the number of guests to 3. When you have a small group, we can keep the focus where it belongs: on YOU. We have seen it all, from clients shopping alone (yes, people really do this - we've done it ourselves!) to groups of 5 or more, and we have found that too many opinions can be overwhelming and can keep you from figuring out what you actually like. We want your appointment to be fun, not stressful! In our opinion, the ideal number of guests is 2, but we can accommodate 3 guests per client.

If you require additional guests, please send us an email, and we will do our best to accommodate you. 

How long will my appointment be?

Our appointments are 90 minutes long. If we run over, or if you want to come back and try a on a favorite wedding dress again, we will gladly schedule a second appointment at no charge. If you’re not local to Atlanta and you need to make a decision at your appointment, please let us know in advance so that we can try to schedule a longer time for you.

What happens during an appointment?

We think that shopping for your wedding dress should be fun and exciting. Our professional stylist will talk with you about what you are looking for and will help you make a selection of gowns. Your stylist has a wealth of guidance to offer about what styles would suit you and the style of your wedding. We'll be on hand during the appointment to help you in and out of the dresses, select coordinating accessories, and debate the finer points of your favorites.

Your stylist may encourage you to try on wedding dresses that you would not have normally considered, so please come with an open mind. Your appointment is a great opportunity to explore, consider all of your options, and make sure you walk away from the appointment feeling totally confident in your decision!

Do you have all of the dresses shown on your website in stock?

We have stock in the boutique of all of the designers mentioned on our designer page. The photos in our lookbook and on our designer pages are provided to give you an idea of the current styles we have. We have so many dresses in the store that we simply cannot photograph them all! If you're interested in a particular designer or style, please get in touch, and we can give you more specific information about what we have. 

If you are visiting us in order to try on a specific gown you've seen on our website, please reach out to us to confirm that we have it so we don't end up disappointing you! 

Do you offer in-house fittings?

We are not currently equipped to offer fittings. We hope to begin providing an in-house tailoring service soon, but in the meantime, we can provide you with a list of expert bridal seamstresses in the area (including two that our founder has used personally).

How long do fittings take?

Ideally, you should budget at least 8-10 weeks for the tailoring process. The length of time allocated for fittings will vary by seamstress and season, though, so it's best to book in with your preferred seamstress as soon as you purchase your wedding dress, even if that means making your appointment many months in advance.  

What should I wear to my appointment?

You don't need to wear anything in particular, but you may choose to wear underwear in the same color as your skin tone, the type of shapewear you intend to wear (if any), and heels of the same height you plan to wear at your wedding.

Feel free to bring along any special or important accessories that you would like to wear to your wedding, and we can help you try them on with your gown selections.

Please avoid wearing heavy make-up or fake tanning products. If you wear heavy makeup and it stains or damages one of our gowns, we reserve the right to charge you the cost of fixing the damage or the total cost of the gown if it is irreparable. 

What sizes do you carry?

Currently, we carry bridal gowns in sizes 2-26. These sizes are roughly equivalent to street sizes 00-22. We label our wedding dress collection according to measurements to make it easier for you to select the right size for you.

Please note that an experienced bridal seamstress can tailor a gown down 2-3 sizes, but gowns can rarely be made more than 1-2 sizes larger without requiring substantial alterations fees.

What is the price range of your gowns?

Our gowns range in price from $750 to $5,000, with the majority of our dresses falling between $1,500 and $3,000. We offer up to 70% off of the MSRP for our gowns and separates. 

Do you sell bridal accessories like earrings, sashes, and headpieces?

Yes! We have a small - but growing - collection of accessories from luxury accessory designers like Elizabeth Bower, Haute Bride, Jennifer Behr, Untamed Petals, A.B. Ellie, and Twigs & Honey.

Do you sell bridal separates?

We love separates at A Day in June! They are a great way to create a highly personalized bridal look at a fraction of the cost of a custom gown. We have gorgeous tops and skirts from designers like Monique Lhuillier, Leanne Marshall, Sarah Seven, and Catherine Deane.

Do you offer returns or exchanges?

Because of the charitable nature of our shop, we are unable to offer returns or exchanges on our gowns; all sales are final. It would not be possible for us to fully support our nonprofits if we accepted returns. We make donations to our partner organizations frequently, and we cannot claw back funds from them and their important work.

Please see our full return policy for more details.

Are children or pets allowed?

Children can be distracting at bridal appointments, but we're moms too, so we get it! If you need to bring your kiddo/s along, please just let us know beforehand so we can prepare the shop accordingly.

We allow service animals, but we cannot accommodate pets.

 

When should I begin my dress shopping?

Our dresses are sold off the rack and are ready to take away with you, so there are no long lead times like at other bridal salons. You can even purchase your gown with only days to go if you are eloping or in a spur-of-the-moment kind of mood!
