Why do I need to make an appointment to try on wedding gowns?
In order to give you the full attention of our experienced consultants, appointments are necessary.
How long is my appointment?
Bridal gown appointments last 1 hour
What should I bring to my appointment?
Bring pictures of dresses you’ve seen on our website, in magazines, or that you’ve tried on elsewhere. And bring an open mind: don’t be surprised if you find “the dress” on your first visit to Raffaele Ciuca.
Who should I bring to my appointment?
Bring the closest friend or family member whose opinion you value and who knows you well and with whom you want to share the experience of buying your gown. Bringing more than 3 others can take the focus off of you.
What size gowns do you carry up to?
Most of our samples are the traditional sample size, which is 10 - 12. Gown size range is from 8 – 22 Plus
May I take pictures of the gowns while I try them on?
We do not allow cameras in the fitting rooms while you are shopping. Once you have purchased a dress, you may take as many pictures as you’d like.
When should I order my veil and/or headpiece?
Special-order designer veils and or head pieces have a 2 months lead-time, so making a decision at the time you order your gown is helpful.
Can I complete my entire look in one appointment?
Absolutely! Not only do many brides find their dress on their first visit to our store, but they also find all their accessories (veils, headpieces, shoes, jewelry etc) on their first visit.
Do I need to make an appointment to look at accessories?
You may walk in at any time to try on shoes or jewelry; however, appointments are required for veils and headpieces. Click here for store hours
