  • Do I have to make an appointment?
    Yes! Wedding dress shopping should be a beautiful, special experience. We want you to make the best memories with your besties. Our appointments are private or semi-private. We can accommodate up to two brides at one time.
  • What is the average pricepoint?
    Our gowns start at $1500 and go up to just over $6,000. We have an amazing variety of the best wedding gowns. We chose the best gowns for every price point in our range. The majority of our gowns are between $1800-$3000. You should definitely know a price point you'd like to stay within before you come so we can find the perfect gown for you! Many of our gowns are exclusive to our store and can't be found within 2-3 hours from us ensuring you get the most unique gown.
  • When should I start shopping for my gown?
    We encourage you to shop 8-12 months prior to your wedding. Things can happen that are way beyond anyone's control. Pandemics, hurricanes, life...and you don't want to miss out on your dream gown because you can't get it in on time. If you have a shorter timeline, let us know! Rush shipping and off the rack gowns are available. We'll do our best to accommodate your time frame!
  • When should I order my wedding dress?
    We recommend ordering your gown 8 months to a year before your wedding day and here is why: each designer has different lead times with the average time taking 4-6 months, most gowns have to be altered so you need to account for a couple months of alterations and lastly, if you are doing bridals then your gown needs to be finished (alterations included) prior to those. In South Louisiana, you will need to take into account Mardi Gras and Prom season if you are marrying in the Spring and Homecoming if marrying the fall (meaning your alterations may take longer than usual).
  • Who should I bring with me to my appointment?
    We highly encourage you to bring your biggest supporters and key decision makers with you. Our shop accommodates 5 guests comfortably. We know you'll love the intimacy of a small group at your appointment.
  • Do you offer a payment plan?
    Yes, we do offer a payment plan! We require 60% down to order the gown and the rest will be broken into 3 equal monthly payments. There is a $100 financing charge when doing a payment plan.
  • Am I allowed to take photos at my appointment?
    Absolutely! We love making memories with you! We recommend narrowing it down to your favorites and then taking photos to compare.
  • Do you have bridesmaid dresses or mother of the bride gowns?
    No, we focus exclusively on the bride!
  • Are alterations included in the cost of my dress?
    No, your gown will almost always need to be altered so it will fit you very well. Whether it is hemming or taking the gown in, each gown needs small, personal changes. Dresses are ordered to you largest measurement. Alterations are not offered in house, but we have amazing local seamstresses we recommend!
  • What are your hours?
    Wednesday- Saturday by appointment only.


We want you to have the best experience at L Bridal. Learn about how to make your appointment the most memorable day!
