“I highly recommend Charlotte’s Weddings for any bride that is hoping to find the perfect dress! Finding my dream dress at Charlotte’s Weddings was so much fun!! Tara was an amazing stylist, extremely knowledgeable, and fun to work with. I loved all the dresses she brought out for me to try on, and also carefully listened to what I was looking for. The entire staff at Charlotte’s had so much energy, and the entire shop was buzzing with excitement on Saturday morning. We found the perfect dress! Thank you Charlotte’s!!”

“I can't say enough amazing things about Charlotte's Weddings and their team (especially Stephanie)! I started dress shopping in May 2019 and Charlotte's was the fourth shop I visited - and WOW my experience with Stephanie stood out. She listened to all my needs, helped me explore every style/detail option and narrow down on what I realized I wanted (I originally had no idea and she was instrumental in helping me figure out what was best for me). I found *the one* that day, though wasn't ready to purchase - felt absolutely no pressure from Stephanie. Without wanting to leave any stone unturned, I had appointments at every Portland bridal shop and tried on 70+ dresses over the next few months (yes, apparently I'm that crazy person haha). No other experience could even come cIose in comparison - Stephanie is the best consultant in this city, they have the best dress selections, kindest staff, and welcoming environment. Picking up my dress was so easy, I'm in love with it, and I can't wait for our big day. THANK YOU Charlotte's Weddings and Stephanie - you truly are Portland's best!”

“I was 100% happy with my dress shopping experience at Charlotte's. I honestly didnt expect shopping for my wedding dress would be fun but everyone at Charlotte's was amazingly nice and helpful especially my bridal stylist Kellie Reye! Within a few short minutes of meeting me and my friends and hearing a little about my approaching wedding I felt like she really understood my style and what I was going for. Kellie listened to what I wanted and didnt want in my dress and nailed it on all her selections for me to try on. In the end I found a dress I am super excited about and the whole experience turned out to be really fun and special for me and my crew. Thanks KELLIE and everyone at Charlotte's for making this process amazing for me!!!!”

“This place is more than 5 stars. Charlotte's was the first place I went to and as soon as I walked in I knew it was special. My stylist was Stephanie and she was AMAZING and more. She took everything I said I was looking for and provided me with multiple gorgeous dresses to try on. She made me feel so relaxed and was so helpful when narrowing down what would work best for me. As soon as I put on THE DRESS it was magic. It wasn't 100% what I thought I wanted but it was 1000000% what I needed. I am so glad I found my princess dress at Charlotte's. Not only did Stephanie have the SAME last name as me, I found out later in my appointment my mom and aunt both bought their dresses at Charlotte's originally. It was meant to be and I am so happy I can be a Charlotte's bride. I HIGHLY recommend going to Charlotte's to find your special dress!!”

Frequently Asked Questions

We do require an appointment to try on wedding gowns, bridal accessories, and any social occasion wear such as bridesmaids and flower girl dresses. Appointments are limited.

We typically recommend ordering your wedding gown 10-12 months before your wedding (if possible). Standard production time of a wedding dress is approximately 7 months, and seamstresses like to have about 2-3 months for alterations. We have options for tighter time frames and alterations can done in shorter time frames if necessary, but that is the recommended amount of time. If your wedding date is on a shorter timeline don't worry we have you covered. We have wedding gowns that can be purchased off the rack and taken home that same day. We have real time access to our wedding gown designer's inventory portals, so we can pull gowns from their incoming shipments. We also have the option to place rush orders with some of our wedding gown designers if necessary. Your bridal stylist will make sure that whatever gowns they are showing you during your appointment are available for your specific time frame. View our latest wedding gown collections by clicking here. Save your favorites to your own shopping gallery to show your bridal stylist before your appointment.

Currently, our bridal suites comfortably fit the bride and up to 4 guests. We do understand that finding your dream dress is an important life moment and there may be additional people that you would like to have with you - we'd love to include them via FaceTime or Zoom! Have more than 4 guests and you'd like them all in person? We want your gown shopping experience to be everything you've dreamed of, so please inquire about additional guests when booking your appointment and we'll do our best to accommodate a larger group!

Due to OLCC restrictions, we ask that you do not bring champagne with you to your appointment.

At Charlotte's we carry sample gowns in a wide range of sizes to make the try on process as comfortable as possible. Our in store samples range in size from an 8 to a 32, with some gowns being available to order up to a size 38! When trying gowns on in store, your stylist will use clips to fit the dresses to you and give you the best idea of how the gown will fit once it is altered to your body for your big day. After you say yes to the dress, your stylist will take your measurements and guide you through the size selection process. Wedding gown sizing is different than regular street clothes, so your stylist will make sure to equip you with all the necessary information so that you can make the best choice for you and your dress!

Feel free to bring a robe if you’d like to wear it in between trying on dresses. In regard to undergarments, a strapless bra and any shapewear you may or may not want to wear on your wedding day is recommended. If you have specific shoes already picked out feel free to bring those! But it isn’t required to have shoes picked out yet.

Our average price point for wedding dresses in Charlotte's Weddings is $1500 to $2500, with gowns up to $4000+. We have a limited selection of special order wedding gowns under $1500. We have a small selection of wedding dresses that can be purchased off the rack for a discount. Those wedding gowns will be in the range of $800-$1200 depending on style. Please reference our pricing page for more information on each of our wedding gown designers.

Most bridesmaid dresses take 3-4 months to arrive once you order them. We suggest ordering all of your bridesmaid dresses from the same location and at the same time. This will ensure that the dresses are all made from the same dye lot and are shipped together. If you need your bridesmaid dresses in less than 3 months most designers offer a rush option for an additional fee. When bridesmaids are in different cities we suggest they have measurements taken by their local bridal shop. If possible, they should try and find the designer of their dress to try on and get a better idea on size. Once they have been measured, they can log onto the designer's website to review the correct size chart. They should compare their measurements to the size chart and choose the appropriate dress size. Once they have chosen their size all of their information can be input into the bridesmaid agreement on our website. Once they hit submit the agreement gets email directly to Charlotte's! A 50% deposit is needed on each dress. So, if the bridesmaid is responsible for her payment she can take care of payment over the phone. We can also ship the dress to an out of town bridesmaid when it arrives for an additional fee.

At Charlotte's we have a large selection of accessories to help complete your wedding day look! Veils, jewelry, capes, headpieces and more are all available in store to help you visualize how you'll look on your wedding day. For more information visit the Accessories page on our website.
