We recommend shopping for your wedding dress right after you choose your wedding date and venue. Most gowns take between six and eight months to arrive from the date you order the dress.
If you have less than six months before your big day, we still have lots of options that can be ready in time for your wedding. Rush fees and availability depend on the designer. We also have a frequently-changing selection of sample gowns at Oh My Gown, that can be purchased off the rack, which are great for very short time-frame brides!
At THE PLUMED SERPENT, we strive to keep your appointment as refined as possible (which means it is not your typical bridal experience). Your initial bridal appointment will run for 1 1/2 hours. Your follow-up is usually about half of that time. Your entire appointment will be spent with a personal bridal stylist who will select dresses, jewelry, and accessories, based on who you are, your vision, and key elements that are important to you for your big day!
If you are not local to Connecticut, please let us know so we can accommodate a longer appointment for you.
While most of our floor samples are between sizes 8-12, we carry samples up to size 18. With that said, we have some clips, slips, and tricks that give you the most accurate representation.
In addition, our designers are extremely versatile and happy to work with us to ensure your gown is ordered closest to your fit. It is important to us that our designers can offer versatility in sizing for all bodies. Most of our designers can range from a size 0-24.
We welcome you to bring pictures of gowns that inspire you. Source them from magazines, Pinterest, vision boards…anything you’d like! If you don't already have a vision of what you like, no worries - we'll help you discover your wedding style.
Please wear nude-colored underwear when trying on wedding dresses. We encourage you to eat before or after your visit with us as we do not allow food and beverages in the shop with the exception of water. In Westport, we are surrounded by several local restaurants and are happy to recommend our favorites if requested!
Bride plus 4 guests
Our made-to-order gowns range from $2,500 - $15,000, with the bulk of our gowns being in the $2,500-$8,000 range.
When you come in for your appointment, your bridal stylist will help you choose gowns in a price range that you're comfortable with. We never push you to spend more than you want, and we treat every bride with the same pampering service regardless of how much she wants to spend.
A trunk show is an exclusive preview of a designer’s full collection, usually in store over one to two weekends. This is a great opportunity to try on samples from your favorite designers that we may not have in store year round! ( LINK TO EVENTS )
We work with several trusted local alteration specialists and will help guide you to find the best one for you.
