  • Tamzen’s Bridal at Butler Manor loves catering to our brides. We close our bridal shop for one-to-two bridal appointments at a time. As you can imagine, weekend appointments book a few weeks in advance. Please book your appointment early so you are certain to get the date/time you are hoping for.
  • We reserve 90 minutes for your first bridal appointment and may require a separate appointment for accessories and returning bridal appointments if needed.
  • Please avoid heavy make-up and tanning sprays before your appointment. This will help to keep our gowns looking beautiful.
  • It is never too early to shop for a wedding gown! Gowns can take 4-8 months to arrive so make sure you leave plenty of time. If you don’t have enough time, we can usually rush order a gown. We do our best to accommodate all of our brides.
  • If you are looking to try on a specific gown, please contact us prior so that you may try on the gown of your choice at the time of your appointment.
  • Having an understanding of your bridal gown budget is very helpful, not only to you but to your consultant. Keep in mind that our gowns range in price from $800 – $2000.
  • We invite you to bring pictures of the type of dress you are looking for to your appointment. Our goal is to help you create the look you are striving for on your special day, and we may have several options that fit the style you’re looking for.
  • Come to your appointment with an open mind, be willing to try on several silhouettes and trust your consultant to make recommendations as well.
  • Ask questions and let your consultant know what you do and don’t like about the gowns you are trying. It helps your consultant have a better understanding of what you are looking for.
  • We do provide a seamstress for alteration purposes. Almost all wedding gowns will require alterations 2-3 months prior to your wedding day.
  • Most importantly, have fun and enjoy the experience as we help you find your perfect dress!
