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.
We recommend ordering your wedding gown 10-12 months before your wedding (if possible). Standard production time of a wedding dress is up to 7 months, and your seamstress will need a few months for alterations. We recommend that once you've found your venue and set your wedding date, it's time to start your dress shopping journey!
Don't worry if you find your self with a shorter timeline than recommended. Your stylist will work with you to make sure you see options that can be taken home that same day or will arrive quicker that the standard production time with a rush fee or through an earlier shipment with our access to designer's real time inventory portals. Rest assured that no matter your timeline, your perfect dress is waiting for you at Charlotte's!

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.
We suggest you set your first appointment with a seamstress for 8-12 weeks before your wedding. Before your appointment be sure to have all of your undergarments with you, such as a bra, slip, and shoes. It makes the biggest difference in the fit of your gown! You will have at least three appointments with a seamstress before your wedding day. We recommend reviewing our seamstress page for more information on our preferred seamstresses. Once you are done with all of your fittings, return the gown to Charlotte's for the steam and press service and it will be ready a few days before the big day!
