What does it mean to be "closed stock"? And why have we modeled our boutiques in this way? "Closed stock" means we work a little differently than most bridal stores and that you won't see racks and racks of gowns in our storefront. Most of the dresses are in our back stockroom (think Say Yes to the Dress!) When you come in for your bridal appointment, you will be working one on one with a highly trained bridal stylist who will pull dresses for you; with your vision, price-point, and timeline in mind. This has worked for over 4,000 brides, here are a few reasons why: 


Less Overwhelm for the Bride


Closed stock allows for less overwhelm for our brides! This takes off the stress of searching through racks and racks of dresses to find the right one. We do the hard work, so you can sit back and enjoy the experience. This also means you won’t see any dresses that are outside of your price point. The last thing we would want is for a bride to fall in love with a dress outside of their price range. Your stylist will make certain to only show you dresses that are the best option.



Highly Trained Stylists


Your stylist will listen to your bridal desires and find THE one that fits every one. Our stylists only take one bride at a time, ensuring the focus of your appointment is you. Stylists are highly trained and have extensive knowledge of our dresses.Your stylist will know all the possibilities a dress holds, that you can't tell just by looking at it. For example, many of our dresses can come in different colors from ivory, sand, blush, champagne or even black! And- dresses can look so different on a hanger. You never know you might love something until you try it on! Certain things we consider, so you don't have to include- your price point, your timeline, and customizations.



Pre-appointment Process


Our pre-appointment process is a huge part of why this works so well for our brides. So well in fact that it’s not uncommon for brides to say yes to the first dress they try-on! Once you book an appointment we ask you to fill out the Adore Bride interview. This helps us get to know you and your style. You’ll also be asked if you’d like to hop on a quick phone call to talk even more about what you are looking for in a dress. Have a pinterest board or inspo pics? Please send them our way! Before you’ve even stepped into the door your stylist has scoured our inventory for your perfect dress.
