Bubbly Bridal Expo
THE ULTIMATE SAMPLE SALE & Bridal Showcase in Annapolis
Hattie - Fall 2020
Private Bridal Appointments
We offer private appointments so you and your guests can feel comfortable and really enjoy wedding dress shopping! With a large couch and a relaxed boutique vibe, we find our brides are at ease! We constantly hear “I didn’t expect to find my gown today!” I believe that stems from us wanting your bridal experience to be perfectly tailored to you!
Looking for a return on investment on a designer gown? We can help! We are very specific with the gowns we accept on consignment, because we want to be successful for you and provide gowns we know our brides will love. We offer a 50/50 split of the sale, which allows you to sit back and wait for a check while we put in all the work marketing the gown, caring for the gown, working with appointments and attending bridal shows to showcase our inventory.
We do not carry formal wear samples in the boutique at this time, but we do have an extensive online only catalog available to order. If you find a gown within that digital catalog, you can set up a measurements / fitting appointment. At that appointment, your consultant will take measurements, discuss pricing options and then place the order. When the gown arrives it will be placed on and a discussion about necessary alterations will occur. The gowns are a beautiful addition to any event!
We offer measurements for gown purchased outside of our boutique for a small measurement fee. We offer FREE measurements for brides ordering gowns from us or bridesmaids ordering from our bridesmaid catalog. Though we don’t offer alterations, we are happy to fit you in your gown (one purchased from our boutique) and make suggestions for alterations so you can speak to an independent seamstress about implementing.
- Please note we will NOT recommend independent seamstresses / companies for gowns we did not sell for liability reasons.
We are proud to be stocking Allure Bridal Bridesmaids for our bridesmaid line! This line is sophisticated, elegant, remarkable fabrics and gorgeous silhouettes! This line spoke to us and we are so happy we stock it! With over 60 samples in the boutique to try on, fabric swatches, a sample digital catalog for non-stocked styles, and a 16 week turnaround — these gowns are sure to impress! PLUS — bridesmaids who’s bride purchased their gown from us receive 15% bridesmaid orders!
Suits & Tuxedos
We are proud to be stocking Jim’s Formal Wear for our mens wear! These suits are high quality, superior fabrics, solid looks and features ease of rental or purchase for our grooms, groomsmen and formal wear customers. These should be ordered a minimum of 30 days in advance of the event, but we prefer 60 – 120 days to ensure order accuracy. We do not offer try ons, but do have physical and digital catalogs, a groom’s website and appointment suite and professional measurements. Plus CTB Bridal Parties receive 10% off their order!
Let's Find Your Dream Gown Today
The nature of our boutique is 80% considered “Off-The-Rack” meaning you fall in love with the gown you try on and you get to take that beautiful gown home for LESS than it originally retailed… an amazing deal! However, we do carry 3 Made-To-Order Lines: Rebecca Ingram, Maggie Sottero, & Sottero & Midgley. These lines can be ordered in the closest bridal size and other colorways, however, most of our off-the-rack gowns fit just as beautifully. Overall, whether a brand new gown or off-the-rack, alterations will be required, so definitely don’t let that deter you!
All of our gowns are of a high quality designer name and are in peak condition. We work very hard to find vendors, designers, and styles that we know our brides will love! 99% of the time you would not be able to tell the difference between one of our off-the-rack gowns and a gown that came out of our manufacturers box. We keep our gowns in the best condition!
Our Off-The-Rack gowns can range from $750 – $3,000 (usually fall between $899 – $1,500 — during sample sales we bring out $500 gowns (Typically March/April & November) and can be taken home the same day. Our ordered gowns range from $1,300 – $3,000 (usually fall between $1,399 – $2,650) and usually have a 4 – 7 month waiting period. However, SELECT gowns can be in as soon as 4 weeks! Please note that off-the-rack gowns typically range in bridal sizes 8 – 18 and made-to-order gowns can be ordered from a 0 – 28. Bridal Sizing is typically 1 – 4 sizes higher than street size.
