Our walls are lined with gorgeous gowns for you to try. Our lovely bridal stylists are on hand for all of your needs. We look forward to welcoming you into our sweet boutique and cannot wait to make your wedding dress dream a reality.
To ensure that your experience is perfect from start to finish, here are a few words of advice for making the most out of your time at Elle.
Do I need an appointment?
Yes. To keep each bride the center of attention, our shop is by appointment only. Appointments are usually an hour and a half. We are happy to accommodate your timing, please make your appointment HERE!
What to expect
From the moment you step through our door, you'll have our undivided attention. We will get to know you, your style and your preference for all the small details - buttons over zippers, lace over chiffon, swoop necks over lace backs. By the time you leave, we’ll probably also know your favorite type of coffee, flavor of dessert and spot to lunch with mom.
We went to NEW YORK BRIDAL FASHION WEEK to find the perfect gowns for Elle Bridal Boutique. We are currently showcasing six fabulous designers whose gowns reflect a beautiful combination of Southern California and Parisian styles. We carry la créme de la créme with a collection of 45 gorgeous gowns and hope we can find the perfect one for you. Our gowns range in price from $2,000- $6,000.
When to start dress shopping
We recommend at least 8-10 months before your wedding. It can take up to 6 months for all beads to be sewn and lace to be garnished then flown to our doorstep for you to pick up. Add another 2-3 months for alterations fit for a queen herself. While some designers can meet in-a-pinch deadlines, giving yourself enough time will save you from rush fees and stress.
What to bring
The quick list: a nude strapless bra, nude undies, and your favorite shoes. These items will play a key role in helping you envision yourself on your wedding day.
WHAT NOT TO BRING
We have a strict no food or drink policy in order to keep our gowns in pristine condition.
Who to bring
We recommend you choose one to four special loved ones who know your personality and your personal style best. Who will listen to your opinion without overstating theirs and who will have your beloved Chanel lipstick tucked in hand for your “this is it!” touch up? To keep your vision in focus, we cap the guest list to a max of four.
WhO to leave at home
We kindly ask that you leave your littles at home. A shop full of white dresses and delicate trinkets is a dangerous place for the young and curious!
How we size
All gowns in our shop are a sample size 10. We clamp, pin and tuck to preliminary perfection. Once you have found the dress, we will take your measurements and place the order. Our designers make their dresses in standard sizing with a standard size chart. We order the size that is closest to your measurements. To give your dress the final perfect fit, alternations are always needed.
While we do not provide in-house alterations, we have three local seamstresses who we recommend to our brides. EBB is not affiliated with any specific seamstress. The final decision is yours.
