Please come free of tranferable makeup, lipstick, self-tanning products and heavy fragrance. Our gowns are not samples; they're truly one-of-a-kind, never to be repeated
We suggest you bring a camera and 1-3 people; more people can add more confusion
Please wear a very supportive, non-strapless bra
Expect that many of the gowns in our inventory will not immediately fit you; we custom fit your dress just for you
Prepare to have fun!
We make the unorthodox recommendation of popping into any basic standard bridal shop before your appointment at Andrea’s Vintage for the following reason: to determine the feel of construction/weight between contemporary gowns and our vintage gowns; this is the biggest difference between our gowns and everything else out there, and if a bride has never tried on a dress before shopping with us it can be very difficult to know what she's missing/gaining.
A no-pressure stop in another shop can provide this valuable context of objectivity. Our shop can be a tricky "first time out" and if a bride isn't prepared to make decisions and take a dress home then we unfortunately have encountered some heartbreak when they ARE ready to purchase some days/weeks later and their dress no longer exists.
prices range approx. $700-$2,400
a small selection of gowns are more and less than this
sizes range 000 Petite-14 Tall
we have an ongoing commitment to increasing our inventory of vintage and vintage inspired wedding dresses in a diversity of sizes
with that in mind, please know that sizes 16-20 can be custom built from our sz14 gowns but they won't fit during the trying
The most common feedback from our brides after working with my daughter Nikolina: "I had NO idea this dress existed and it looks nothing like what I thought I wanted, but I'm so glad I found your shop because its totally 'me' and no one else on earth has this exact dress."
This is the highest compliment we can get, because we may have just met you but we work hard to figure out what feels just right for you. And each gown is as unique as our lovely clientele! We want to make this easy and special, and work dilligently to match the right dress with the right bride.
