Appointments

What is a private label?


Private labels are private designers who aren't majorly advertised. It's a closed, currated collection of exclusive bridal gowns that Vintage Chic gets to choose from! Therefore, our orderable collection has gorgeous gowns that you won't find anywhere else in the area!




What does "off the rack" mean?


Off the rack means that you would buy and take the sample that's in the shop; you'd take the dress in an "as is" state. Therefore, you have to like the color of the dress and it has to be relatively close to your size. This option is great for brides with not enough time to order a wedding dress or for brides who are looking for a great deal as these gowns are discounted from their original selling price!




What is the difference between off the rack and orderable?


Off the rack means that you would buy and take the sample that's in the shop; you'd take the dress in an "as is" state. Therefore, you have to like the color of the dress and it has to be relatively close to your size. This option is great for brides with not enough time to order a wedding dress or for brides who are looking for a great deal as these gowns are discounted from their original selling price! Orderable means that you would try on the sample in the shop and then order your own dress in the size and color of your choosing. Orderable gowns take 15-20 weeks to arrive at the shop. Therefore, you need to order the dress in ample time to allow for your dress to be made.




What merchandise do you carry?


Vintage Chic carries bridal gowns and bridal accessories! We're the only shop in the tri-state area that focuses exclusively on the bride!




How long does it take for an orderable wedding dress to be ordered?


Orderable dresses take 15-20 weeks to arrive in the shop once they're ordered. We can offer a rush option; however, this is an additional cost. We highly recommend buying your dress at least 8 months out from your wedding to make the process as stress-free as possible and to avoid additional fees. This time frame allows ample time for your dress to be ordered, arrive in the shop, for you to pick the dress up, and have the dress altered (it's recommended to start alterations 8-12 weeks prior to your wedding).




What designers do you carry?


For our orderable bridal gowns, we exclusively carry private labels. Private labels are private designers who aren't majorly advertised. It's a closed, currated collection of exclusive bridal gowns that Vintage Chic gets to choose from! Therefore, our orderable collection has gorgeous gowns that you won't find anywhere else in the area! For our off the rack selection, we carry an array of major designers such as Essense of Australia, Allure, Maggie Sottero, and so many more!




How much do your dresses cost?


All of the dresses in the shop are under $1,500 and most range from $1,100 to $1,300. There are options under $1,000; however, this selection is limited and are mostly off the rack options. The simpiler the dress and the less amount of lace and beading, the less expensive the gown will be. If you ever have a question of how much a specific dress costs, feel free to message us and we can give you that information!




How much do your veils cost?


This depend on the length and detail of the veil. Vintage Chic carries fingertip veils that are off the rack for under $100 but our orderable veils range from $100-$250. The longer the veil, the more expensive it will be. Our floor length and cathedral veils range from $200-$400 depending on the detail on the veil.




What sizes do you carry for wedding dresses?


Vintage Chic wants every bride to be able to find their dream dress at the shop! Therefore, we carry sizes 8-30. If you're below an 8, don't worry! We have extensive training in clipping dresses to give you the best idea of what the dress will look like in your size!




Do you carry plus size?


Absolutely! We have over 30 dresses in a bridal size 20 or higher! We carry bridal sizes 20, 22, 24, 28, and 30! It's important to Vintage Chic that each and every bride has a plentiful amount of dresses to try on! Also, unlike many shops, Vintage Chic does not charge an additional cost when you order in plus size!




What does "bridal size" mean?


Your bridal size will differ from your jeans or normal dress size. In bridal, you're typically 2 sizes high than your jeans or normal dress size. Therefore, if you're a jeans or normal dress size 12, you will most likely be a bridal size 16. Don't worry, girls! At the end of the day, it's just a number and you will look beautiful no matter what size you order!




Do you do alterations?


I do not do alterations. Alterations on a wedding dress is pure magic, so I leave it to the experts! I refer out to Heather at The Threaded Needle. She has her very own studio in her home in Dyersville, IA and she does AMAZING work! Her phone number is 563-543-6930!




When should I start alterations?


We recommend allowing 8-12 weeks for your dress to be altered prior to your wedding. You will go in for roughly 2-3 fittings in that time period to make sure the dress is just the way you want it!
