Do I need to make an appointment to try on bridal gowns?

Yes! Sophia’s is well known in Indianapolis for its personalized service and expert bridal stylists. To have the best experience, we highly recommend having an appointment.  Most bridal appointments last an hour and a half to two hours, and you will be working one-on-one with your stylists to find the perfect dress.

We also do appointments for tuxedo rentals and bridesmaid dresses.  We can’t wait to have your friends and family in as well.

You can schedule appointments on our website here, or by calling 317.222.5465.

What sizes are your sample wedding dresses?

It is one of our main goals to have samples in sizes that every bride can try! We have samples from size 8 to size 28.  Bridal gowns tend to run small, so be prepared to fit into a gown that may be 1-2 sizes higher in number than you normally wear. (If you are a size 2, you will be a 4 or 6 in bridal).  Our stylists are masters at clipping and paneling to help you get an idea of what a dress will look like, even if it isn’t in your exact size – you will look and feel beautiful and confident!

How far in advance should I order my dress?

Wedding dresses can take up to 4-6 months to order, so we always suggest shopping early!  We have amazing relationships with our designers, so we can work our magic when we can to get gowns in faster, but we try to keep things stress free and suggest shopping 8-12 months before your wedding.  This gives you plenty of time to order and get alterations done with no rush before the wedding.  We also have a selection of wedding dresses that can be sold off the rack and taken home that day!

What are the price ranges of your dresses?

At Sophia’s, we work with high-end, quality designers to create the perfect collection of wedding dresses in every style, shape, and size.  We strive to have quality wedding dresses that will help you feel confident, beautiful, and like a bride!  Our dresses range from about $900-3500, with our average price being around $1500.  We always try to stay very respectful of your budget, and feel confident that we can find the perfect dress for you within that range.

Who should I bring with me to my appointment?

Because our mission is to create relationships with our customers, we love meeting friends, family, and those important to you!  Our boutique comfortably fits 4-6 guests with each bride, and we feel like this helps you not feel overwhelmed, but supported in your decision.  It also brings so much fun to the day!

Have a big party?  We also have our amazing Royal Treatment appointments available after hours.  These luxury, private appointments allow you to bring as many guests as you’d like, plus lots of other surprises are included.  If you’d like more information on these, check it out here!
