Please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions for most of your needs below. If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to call the staff at Louise Christine Bridal Boutique at 937-751-7689.
1. Do I need to make an appointment?
While we do our best to accommodate walk-ins, appointments are preferred. Scheduling an appointment is the best way to ensure you have a fitting room and one of our amazing consultants assigned to you! On Saturdays appointments are required and we limit groups to 6 members or less to ensure our brides can enjoy their time in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.

2. What is your price range?
The wedding dresses in our shop range in price from $900 - $3600. We also have a selection of sample gowns available to purchase off-the-rack and take home same day that begin at $500. Please note, the availability of sizes and prices within the sample gowns vary! Please call with specific inquiries.
3. What sizes do you carry?
The dresses available to try on in our boutique range from bridal size 8 - 28. If you would like to know what your approximate bridal size is, please read question 4! We do have the ability to order dresses as low as bridal size 2 and up to bridal size 34. We do not have every style available in multiple sizes, so please call us if you have questions or are looking for something specific!
4. What is my bridal size?
In our store, your bridal size is approximately 2 or 3 sizes higher than the clothing you wear on a daily basis. For example, if you wear a pant size 8, you may fit comfortably in a bridal size 14.
5. Do you carry plus size wedding dresses?
Yes, we do carry plus size wedding dresses at Louise Christine Bridal Boutique. We have dresses in store available to try on up to a bridal size 28, and we have the ability to order certain gowns up to bridal size 34. Our section of plus size wedding dresses vary in style and price. If you have a specific style or budget in mind, please feel free to call us to check availability.
6. What should I bring/wear to my appointment?
Most brides wear comfortable clothes. While wearing a bra while trying on dresses is optional, we ask that brides wear underwear. If you plan on wearing a shaper, a corset, or any other specific undergarment on your wedding day, it is wise to bring it with you. We like to be able to measure you in these undergarments to recommend the proper size. You are also welcome to bring high heels, or any other specific shoe you plan to wear the day of the wedding. We do not provide shoes for trying on dresses, but we have pedestals for brides to stand on while viewing themselves in the mirror.
7. Do you buy wedding dresses?
Unfortunately, we do not buy wedding gowns either worn or unworn.
8. What are your hours?
We are open from 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. We are open 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with appointments required on Saturday. During January and February we have limited hours on Sunday by appointment only. We are closed on Monday.
9. When should I shop for my dress?
We recommend shopping for your dress approximately 10-12 months before your wedding. However, there is no such thing as shopping too early! If your wedding is coming up quickly, we would love to show you our off-the-rack styles that would be available to buy and take home the same day! We can also discuss rush-shipping options for our ordered gowns.
10. Do you have in-house alterations?
We do not have an alterations department in our store. However, Louise Christine brides will be given a list of highly recommended seamstresses.
11. Can I bring champagne or mimosas to my appointment?
While we do not allow outside alcohol to be brought in, if you say YES! to your dress we would love to offer your group a celebratory champagne toast!
