Yes! Always & Forever is currently open by appointment only. We set ourselves apart by quality, not quantity, and therefore our boutique has a limited number of dressing rooms. When you schedule an appointment you will have a a one-on-one stylist reserved just for you to make sure you receive the Always & Forever Experience!
Bridal and bridesmaid appointments are 90 minutes. Formalwear appointments are 60 minutes. This is generally the right amount of time to try on many dresses with a master stylist and to choose your BEAUTIFUL dress without feeling rushed.
Classic bridal appointments allow the bride to bring up to five guests with her. To ensure comfortable seating for all brides and their guests, each bridal appointment may only bring up to five guests with them to their appointment. Formalwear appointments allow seating for up to two guests with the client. These limits include children and babies.
Although we do allow children to attend appointments, we require direct supervision by an adult with you at all times. Due to the delicate nature of our merchandise and placement of mirrors, children are not allowed access to certain areas of the store or onto any platforms.
We recommend ordering your wedding dress anywhere from 7-9 months before your wedding date. This leaves time for any alterations needed or customizing. Don't be discouraged if you don't have that long of a timeline! Not only are there rush options that can be added to your dress for it to be delivered faster, we have a huge collection of in stock wedding dresses ready to go home with you the same day! For bridesmaids we recommend 3-4 months before your wedding date to allow sufficient time for them to arrive and have alterations completed.
