frequently asked questions

What is the price range of your gowns?

We have hand-selected a collection of gowns that start at $1600.

How do I know if I am a curvy bride?

Great question! Curves come in all shapes and sizes, and brides can be anywhere from one to three sizes larger in bridal gowns than street clothes. Our boutique specifically caters to ladies in a bridal size 14+. This means if you are a street size 10 or above Olivia's Bridal House will be a perfect fit! For more questions please feel free to call us at 281-741-0249.

Do I need an appointment to shop in your boutique?

Yes. We want your shopping experience to be intimate and fun!  Therefore, our bridal gown consultations are always by appointment only.

Am I able to make a same day appointment?

Because we are an intimate boutique, we can book days in advance. Please contact us via phone or email and we will try our best to accommodate you and your guests.

Can I just stop by to browse your gowns?

No. We are by appointment only and we honor those appointments first. We want every bride to have a supreme shopping experience with us so we request that you please contact us to schedule an appointment rather than dropping by.

How long does my bridal appointment last?

Please allow an hour and fifteen minutes for your bridal appointment.  We encourage you to arrive on time. Not too early and definitely not late! This allows us to ensure a memorable experience that is all about you!

Who should I bring with me to shop?

We ask that you limit your guest list to your Fav-Four!  You know…those people whose opinions you trust the most and that will respect your decision. Just as important, make sure the ones whose opinions will influence your dress selection attend your first consultation with us as well. 

Are photographs allowed?

No, we do not allow photographs in our boutique. Taking them throughout the appointment can be distracting and may not be the best use of your time. Of course, once you say Yes you are more than welcome to take several photos of your gown!

Am I allowed to bring children to the appointment?

Due to the sensitive nature of our garments,  children under the age of 13 are not allowed at appointments.  Please be respectful of this policy!

Do you sell plus sized bridesmaids gowns too?

No. We currently only cater to the bride!

Do I need to bring undergarments with me to try on a gown?

If you already have the undergarments or a similar one that you plan to wear on your wedding day, please bring them with you to your consultation. It will give you a better understanding of your "total look" for your special day.

How long will it take to receive my wedding gown?

Most of our designers require at least 4 - 6 months delivery for gowns. Please note we are able to do rush shipping for most of our gowns for an additional fee.

Do you offer alterations?

Yes, we have a Master Seamstress on staff to assist you with gown alterations. Alterations are not included in the price of gowns.

What do I do with my gown after I get married?

You can cherish your gown for years to come with the expert cleaning and preservation services we offer to you. Contact us for more information at 281-741-0249.
