Do I need to make an appointment?
In response to the current pandemic situation and for everyone's safety,
we are currently by appointment only (includes pick-up). Please feel free to make an appointment here, or call us at 510-438-8877 for same day appointment. We will try our best to accommodate you as space permits and ensuring that we are compliant with CDC's recommendation on social distancing.
What sizes of wedding dresses do you have to try on?
We try our very best to have wedding dress samples in sizes that every bride can try. We have dresses in stock from size 6 to size 32. Bridal gown sizes tend to run small though, so don't be surprised if we pull a size or two higher than what you would normally wear.
Do you sell gowns off rack?
Yes we do sell gowns off rack! Perfect for brides whose wedding is just around the corner. We also have our "OFF RACK GEM" section, where you will find wedding dresses that are amazing both in look and price! So make sure to ask your stylist for those hidden gems!
When should I order my gown?
Standard lead time to order a gown is 4-6 months. You want to give yourself 1-2 months time for alterations. We recommend to start the process 9-12 months before the wedding to avoid rush fee and stress!
What is the price range of your wedding dresses?
According to the The Knot, the average cost of wedding dress purchased in 2017 is $1,509. At Weddings and Dreams, our price range starts at $800 to $2,700 but the sweet spot for most of our wedding dress price is from $1,200 to $1,700. And of course, we have our "OFF RACK GEM" section where dresses starts at $299 and up! These are designer wedding dresses that are discounted up to 75%.
