Do I need an appointment to try on dresses?
As long as we have an available change room, it is possible to try on gowns without an appointment at our Vancouver Flagship. However, an appointment will guarantee a change room & the assistance of a Truvelle stylist.
How long will my appointment be?
Appointments run between 1-1.5 hours. Your first consultation is likely to take 1.5 hours, a second or third appointment should run under an hour.
How many people can I bring to my appointment?
As many as you like. But keep in mind sometimes too many opinions can be overwhelming.
Are alterations included in the price of a dress?
Alterations are not included in the price of a gown.
What should I bring to my appointment?
We suggest you wear seamless undergarments and kindly ask that you wear light makeup to help keep our dresses clean. A strapless bra isn’t necessary as our dresses fit perfectly without!
How much will alterations cost?
We suggest you budget $200-$500 for dress alterations.
Do you offer alterations?
Yes, we offer alterations at our Mount Pleasant Garment Studio.
How long do alterations take?
Alterations vary from bride to bride. We recommend leaving a 2 month window for alterations for ultimate peace of mind. Too late for that? No need to worry, our experienced tailors can work within most timeframes.
What should I bring to an alterations appointment?
Bring your shoes and the undergarments you plan to wear with the dress as both will alter the fit and length of the dress. If you plan to wear bra cups or inserts please pre purchase and bring them to your fitting appointment. If you have any questions about what kind of cups or inserts might suit your dress or body type we’re happy to help! Email us at [email protected]
