The event will be held at Champagne Taste Bridal in our front parking lot and the dressing rooms will be inside the boutique. Parking is free for all on the side of the building. There is limited parking so please arrive as early as possible, but please be aware doors WILL NOT open early and you cannot enter until your appointment time!
Your registration will guarantee a shopping slot to browse and try on for up to 2 hours, however, dressing rooms can only be used for 15 minute intervals. Consultants will be available, but not necessarily assigned to you. Our consultants will only allow you to try on gowns that can actually be altered, fit appropriately and will work for your shape. We DO NOT allow you to “TRY ON FOR FUN” as this can cause damage to the gowns and warrant you to pay for a gown you don’t love. The gown must be within an appropriate alteration range or able to be ordered if it is too small or too large.
Remember bridal sizing can run 1 -4 sizes larger, so DO NOT look at gowns that are your current jean size. A Bridal Profile will be sent to you in advance of the show. Please fill this out so our consultants can best assist you. This helps us stay on time, as we must be mindful of the schedule for the day, especially with cleaning needs due to COVID regulations.
Gowns will range from $350.00 (mostly $500+) to $1,500.00 (some select high end designers in the $1,500 – $3,000 range) each plus Maryland State Taxes. There will be over 275 gowns to choose from but a limited supply of lesser expensive gowns (under $500). All gowns will be well under their retail value, so regardless of price point they are all a great deal.
Please arrive on time to ensure you have the availability to look at the gowns. If you do not find a gown, you are more than welcome to make an appointment at Champagne Taste Bridal to choose from over 500 gowns in our boutique at NON-SAMPLE SALE pricing (still a good deal) and new arrivals. Your admission fee ($25) will apply to a gown purchase that SAME DAY or you can use it in our IBH Creations & Boutique. Otherwise, your admission fee ($25) is NON-REFUNDABLE, even if you do not show up for your appointment the fee will be retained as a revenue loss.
Once you have booked your appointment, there is NO REFUND for non-attendance cancellations. We can instead offer you the $25 credit to IBH Creations & Boutique’s website to be used by the end of the year, as long as you have cancelled your event registration within 7 days of the event. If you cancel inside of the 7 days prior to the event or just don’t show up, your registration fee will be forfeited.
