Wedding Dresses, Bridesmaid Dresses, Tuxedo Rentals, Formal Wear Store in Vancouver, WA

Please go as light on make-up as you feel comfortable for trying on dresses.  Heavy perfumes and make-up can saturate the wedding dresses and force them to be dry cleaned or worse.  This increases the cost of doing business and that cost has to be passed on in the form of higher prices for everyone.  Your Big Day - Bridal Shop does its best to make finding the perfect wedding dress affordable.  We also think you are beautiful either way!

Bring the people who you really trust to give you advice about your wedding dress.  Remember choosing your perfect wedding dress is challenging enough without having too many unnecessary opinions.  Large parties can make the appointment take longer than needed and leave you wanting a do over. It is usually best to bring 1-3 people along.

Please call us for Holiday Hours  (360) 844-7148

We welcome everyone all the time.  That being said it can be beneficial to set an appointment for your wedding dress search.  It will allow us to pull dresses in advance and reserve a fitting room for you and your wedding party.  On days when we have our seamstress in the store, having an appointment allows her to block time to spend with you to answer all your alteration questions!

For tuxedo rentals you do not need an appointment. You're welcome to call the store to see how busy we are and how quickly we can get you measured and ordered.

Kids are welcome if they are well behaved and someone other than the bride is able to watch them in the store.  There are a lot of fragile and delicate bridal items which kids have a hard time not touching.  We offer Flower Girl Dresses for the little ones and welcome them to come try them on!

Bring any pictures you have of styles you like as well as information on other dresses you have tried (styles, colors, likes & dislikes). Wear comfortable clothes that are easy to change into and out of dresses.  If you have any undergarments you are planning to wear such as Spanx, please bring them. We supply long line bras in store but if you have something you are more comfortable using please bring it. You may not know what shoes you are wearing yet but if you have an idea of the height of shoe that is very helpful!  Bring along a pair that is about the height you are thinking.

No food please.   Drinks, particularly clear liquids, are fine. Drinks that may cause stain and damage are ok but you are responsible for any damages caused to the store and/or our merchandise. Thank you for understanding.
