Bridal FAQ's

We ask that all of our brides do call ahead or send a request in for a 90 minute bridal appointment. We pair one of our bridal consultants with every bride to help guide you along the shopping process. In order to give you the experience you deserve, we recommend having an appointment.

As a first time bride, we will book you for a full 90 minute bridal appointment. This allows time for you to shop, try on an assortment of gowns and find “the one”. We can also book a 60 minute appointment for accessories if you have already found your gown and need to find the perfect veil and jewelry while trying on your gown again. Even if you didn’t buy your dress from us, you’re more then welcome to bring in your dress and let us help you find accessories!

We carry an assortment of gowns that range in sizes 2-26 in store available for you to try on, and can special order gowns from sizes 2- 32! This allows you to not only see how a gown in your size looks, but also lets you feel how the dress should fit more accurately.

Every single one of our wedding gowns is available for purchase, same day! That means you don’t have to wait the dreaded 6 month period for a special order dress to arrive in your size, and you can take the dress home immediately. That being said, if we do not have the dress you love in your size, or you’d like to order it in a different color, please allow 4 to 6 months for that process to be completed.

All of our amazing gowns are under our own "After 5 Exclusives" label. This allows us to work directly with our suppliers to design gowns that are perfect for our brides' style and price point. It also allows us to replenish our inventory throughout the year and sell all of our gowns from inventory the same day instead of just placing special orders.

All of our gowns are priced under $2,399. They range from $1,099- $2,399, with a very small selection of discontinued gowns that range from $699-$999. If you have a smaller budget, we can still help you shop smart! We offer an in store payment plan that allows you to budget out your gown monthly until it is paid off, no credit checks, no interest.

Unfortunately we do not have a hold policy. Since every gown we sell is available for purchase out of inventory same day, we cannot hold a gown for you. If you need time to think about a gown, we will discuss options before you leave if your favorite does happen to sell while you sleep on it.

We have two seating areas in our store that can accommodate different size groups of guests. Our smaller seating area can comfortably fit 4 guests or less, while our larger seating area can fit up to 6 guests. We do ask that you limit your group to respect the size of the area you will be sitting in so that your shopping experience is as stress-free as possible! We welcome guests to Face time or Zoom call any family or friends that are not able to make it to your appointment time! Please keep in mind that our bridal areas are located nearby each other, so we do ask that your group size and guests respect our other bride’s shopping experience.

We recommend only bringing those closest to you whose opinions you value the most. Bridal gown shopping can be overwhelming, even in the best circumstances. We want to help keep the stress at a minimum, and bringing a smaller group can help this process. Even though we do allow children to accompany you to your appointment, we do recommend finding alternative accommodations if possible so all of the focus is on you, the bride!

We do not have an in-house seamstress, however we have many around the Gallatin valley area, as well as throughout Montana, that we can refer you to. We recommend that alterations are started about 8-10 weeks before your wedding date, but are also subject to a seamstresses availability. You can view our local seamstresses here for their contact information, or call us if you need recommendations in another town.

An open mind is the best accessory that a bride can bring! You can also bring any inspo pictures of our gowns, Pinterest, or any images that you’ve been loving to help us jump start your shopping process. If there is anything that you will absolutely be wearing on the day of your wedding, please bring these items with you as well! Whether it is a pair of shoes you’ve already bought, or your grandma’s veil, go ahead and bring it along so you can get the best vision of yourself on your wedding day.
