BRIDAL GOWN SHOPPING
BRIDAL GOWN SHOPPING
Bridal gown shopping is by appointment only to ensure staff coverage & available fitting rooms, no matter the day of the week. This is why we offer photos & info of our bridal selection on our website for you to decide if you wish to make an appointment. We do have a large selection of informal or trainless bridal, reception, & rehearsal type dresses that are not listed on the site!
We offer bridal parties 1 hour appointments at no charge with up to 4 guests. Our store becomes extremely busy on Saturdays compared to weekday shopping; & we may be able to accommodate larger groups on weekdays. If the group is above 5 (including bride) we have a $25 (non refundable) fee for Saturdays that would apply to your same day dress purchase.

All OTHER EVENT SHOPPING
Event shopping such as prom, gala, military ball, mother-of, wedding guest, etc. is always WALK-IN during Tuesday through Friday.
Saturdays are by appointment for everybody, no matter the event! If we are full, we will tell you the next time opening available.
Weekdays are first come, first serve & with being naturally slower days, most never wait more than 5-10 minutes for a room!
CONSIGNMENT OF ITEMS
All consignment intake is by appointment to ensure staff availability, avoid multiple consignors at one time, & avoid times during scheduled bridal parties. Click: Consignment
We are at the time of the prom season we are getting so busy with shoppers that we cannot accommodate consignors as well.
WE ARE ON HOLD FROM FEB. 17 TO APR. 4. We have done this every year since open, so this is not a new process. We MUST be able to help the shoppers buying; complete an inventory; and our payouts double from all other seasons!
They MUST be clean - home laundered or dry cleaned. We ask approximately 3 years of age and newer to keep with current trends/styles in an ever-changing industry.
Due to many bridal gowns not selling from either age, specific alterations, or asking price, our guidelines on acceptance have been updated, along with the submission process.

No consignment until April 4th!
We can only accept walk-in customers if there is a fitting room & a team member available to help the guest. Keep in mind that many stores schedule staff based on pre-scheduled appointments &busy seasons.
You can call ahead for the next time open for that day. I have learned over time that walk-ins take time & room away from the schedules guests we are trying to assist, or may disrupt them by shopping within the same area as they are. I strive to help each guest with the utmost attention & help each find the perfect items for their event.
Call 701.639.2146 to schedule; emails are not always monitored.
Prom '23 season is here!
Weekday shopping is walk-in on a first come first serve basis. You may wait 5-10 minutes to browse if others are in front of you for the size range you are in; and 10-15 for the next fitting you. If you make it in BEFORE the posted closing time, you will be helped for up to 30 minutes past close.
During this time we ask for prom groups to limit the number of people in attendance to a smaller group; please tell us if more than one person is shopping for dresses in the group! We have others shopping at the same time & have limited seating. You have 1 hour appointment time on weekends, including fitting room time. We will discuss your size, wishes, budget, & assist you into the right area to begin browsing.
Lastly, during WINTER WEATHER & slushy melts, we are a SHOE FREE store. You are welcome to bring dry shoes, wear socks, etc. though we ask NO wet outside shoes in to avoid puddles the shoppers are stepping in/around & ruining consigned dresses. Call with any questions!
If you are more than 10 minutes late for any appointment scheduled with us, without notifying us that you are running late, the time slot can & will be given to the next person available or a walk-in customer.
Unfortunately, we have seen too many no-shows on Saturdays. I do not charge an appointment fee, nor do I want to see people waiting in line or turned down during busy seasons, so we kindly ask people to call if they need to cancel.
Formally Yours is committed to providing quality pre-loved items
at affordable prices, along with superior customer service & satisfaction
to assist all in having the day of their dreams.
