We can accommodate 4 guests for a classic or celebration appointment and 14 for a princess treatment!! It is so important to have all of your closest friends and family there with you! Saturdays are our busiest days, which means during the week there is more wiggle room to bring along extra guests if needed!
Our gowns are made with the most unbelievable construction so that you don’t need any special undergarments! Our gowns are made to be worn without bras so that you can see the perfect fit! We have pedestals for you to stand on, and it is easier to get in and out of gowns without the shoes!
Our order gowns typically take anywhere from 6-9 months to come in, and then alterations typically take about 3 months! We also have gowns that we sell directly out of our collection that you can take home the same day if your wedding is earlier!
We honestly and truly believe that your perfect gown is in your perfect price point! Our order gowns start at $1500 with the majority of our gowns sitting between $1700 - $4200. Additionally we carry couture gowns that go up into the thousands from there.
We also have an “Off the Rack” collection that starts around $1200!
It is so important that every bride has an array of gowns to try on! It is one of our utmost priorities to have a variety of samples to help you find your perfect gown. We have samples from size 6 to size 30. Our average size for our samples is a bridal 12-14. Bridal gowns tend to run small, so be prepared to fit into a gown that may be 1-2 sizes higher in number than what you normally wear! (If you are a size 6, you will be an 8 or 10 in bridal!) We don’t know why designers do this, but we can assume it is based on European standard sizes! You will feel fabulous in the gowns here at Ava Laurenne!!
Our classic and celebration appointments are 1.5 hours and our princess treatment appointments are 4 hours! There is more wiggle room during the week if you need more time for your appointment since we see the most brides on Saturdays!
We are located in the heart of Downtown Historic Fredericksburg! All of the parking is free, but is street parking. You may have to park a block away and walk over for your appointment, so be sure to plan a little extra time for parking!
Your gown should be as unique as you are! Some of our gowns can be ordered in blue, pink, black in addition to your ivories and blushes! We can also add a sleeve to almost anything along with some other fun customizations!
