Not So Silly Questions

  • Wahoooo ~ I'm engaged!  What's next?
    • Wahooo right back at ya!  First things first ~ set a date, find a venue and start dress shopping!  Keep in mind that even though you can get married next week or next year, shopping for your gown should be done after you've secured your date and venue to ensure that you're shopping for a gown that fits your venue and season - No one wants to end up with a boho beach dress if they are having a winter wonderland wedding - no matter how much you LOVE it!
  • How far in advance should I book my bridal appointment?
    • We like to see you anytime within a year of your wedding date.  Generally our weekend appointments book about 2-3 weeks in advance and our weekdays book about 1 week in advance.  
  • How do I make an appointmennt?
    • Easy Peasy - Call, email, text or fb message for your appointment.  We need the following info to book  - name, email address, wedding date and cell phone number.  You can reach us at 901-481-6906 or cheers@barefoot-bride.com
  • What is the price range of your gowns?
    • All of our gowns are brand new and priced up to 80% off retail.  Our off the rack dresses are $1500 and under.  On average our gowns are in the $650 - $1100 range  - we will be carrying an exclusive Barefoot Bride line starting June 2017 which will be priced $1200 - $2200.  The Barefoot Bride line will be orderable in any size/color.
  • So why does The Barefoot Bride only schedule brides within one year of their wedding date?
    • Since our gowns are "off  the rack" - the gowns you try on, will be the gown you take home.  If you shop too far in advance, chances are the gown that you LOVE will not be available when you're ready to purchase closer to your wedding.  We've also seen brides change their mind and end up with more than one gown because they shopped too early - bummer on the budget!
  • But what if I just want to find out what style I want?
    • Best bet is to style shop at traditional salons that carry sample gowns.  These gowns will not be going home with a bride and are the shop to be tried on multiple times.  We always suggest trying on gowns at other salons before coming to see us.  Since our gowns are the actual gown you'll take home, your personalized style consultant will pull gowns based on your direction and feedback.  When you fall in love with a Barefoot Bride, you can be assured that it hasn't been tried on a million times.  ps - if you find "the one" grab the designer/style number - we'll see if we can get it in for you at a discount!
  • Why can't I just come in and browse?  I am too busy to make an appointment.
    • Since our gowns are sold Off The Rack - we don't offer browsing to ensure that our gowns are in the most pristine condition possible.  We also respect the fact that our brides with  appointments have reserved the shop to be private just for them and their guests.   We promise we'll do the same for your appointment, but to make things easy, we post every gown we get on facebook ~ size, color, designer and style!
  • What should I wear to my appointment?
    • Comfy clothes and limited makeup - no need to get all gussied up because you'll be spending most of your time in our fab Barefoot Bride gowns.  You'll be spending even more time in the dressing room with your gown whisperer so be sure to wear underwear that you feel comfortable wearing in front of a stranger.   Sorry, commando is not an option and if you "forget" the britches, we have some for sale :)
      • ps - you are more than welcome to bring champagne (Maid of Honors ask that a LOT)
  • ONE HOUR??? Is that enough time to find my wedding gown?
    • Our record is 4 minutes!  We were shocked too!  But yes!  1 hour is plenty of time to find the perfect dress!  Your gown whisperer will tailor your time to find exactly what you're looking for.  You'll be amazed at what we can accomplish in an hour.  On another note, you're more than welcome to book another appointment if you need one.  Remember - the shop is YOURS for your appointment and we make this all about YOU!
  • Why  only 4 guests?
    • Good news is that we have more gowns than any other bridal salon within 500 miles ... Bad news is that since there are sooo many gowns, we don't have a lot of room for people.  Better news?  We will be happy to skype or facetime folks that aren't able to make the appointment ... Want even BETTER news?  When you find your gown - you get to take it HOME that day which means you could even have a party at the house with as many of your peeps as you like!  On a serious note, many of our brides have thanked us for limiting the guest count.  Shopping for a wedding dress is stressful enough without a room full of opinions.  We suggest taking the entourage with you to other salons who have no guest limit and bringing your faves to see us.  ps - We love kids, however our shop is not child proof.  Children are included in the guest count and must be supervised during your appointment.
  • Holy Guacamole ~ What's up with my size???
    • Wedding gown sizing sucks!  Generally 1 - 2 sizes bigger than what you normally wear.  We will measure you and shop in your "section"  When you find your gown, we'll be happy to cut the size tag out for free!
  • Do you do alterations on site?
    • No - We have a wonderful list of alterations specialists that will make your gown custom tailored to you!  All alterations are done off-site which saves you moola :) We will be happy to provide alteration notes on what we've discussed at your appointment to get the look you're wanting within your budget!
  • Are Barefoot Bride gowns used?
    • Nope!  We started as a consignment store about 6 years ago and decided to just go with NEW off the rack gowns about 4 years ago.  Everything in the store is BRAND NEW - only tried on in a bridal salon.
  • Do you rent gowns?  Carry prom, mother of the bride or formal gowns?
    • Nope!  We don't rent gowns or carry prom, mother of the bride or formal gowns.
  • Do you carry Bridesmaid Gowns?
    • We will open Barefoot Bridesmaids and Accessories June 2017.  Watch our facebook page for updates!
  • Do you guys sell veils and wedding accessories?
    • We do!  We'll be opening Barefoot Bridesmaids and Accessories in June of 2017, in the meantime just give us a call and we'll schedule a time to shop.
  • Hey!  GPS doesn't like your address!!  Where the heck are you guys!!
    • We are located at 4726 Poplar Ave in the Poplar Village Shopping Center.  We have four signs to help guide the way - a HUGE pink on on Poplar and another Barefoot Bride sign on the building and then two more on the shop.  Poplar Village is between Perkins and Colonial - C-Spire and Soul Fish - Look for Seikisui Pacific Rim's (SPR) big huge Blowfish and we're on the the side of the building - hint:  look for the shop with all the wedding dresses in the window :)  Parking is available in front and back.
