This is for customers requesting in store pick for an order placed online over $499+. This option is available at checkout and is free of charge. Picking up does not speed up process times, just picking up instead of being shipped. We do not accept returns in store for online purchases. In addition, we do not offer try on services or fitting rooms for online orders, this is solely picking up and takes  10 minutes or less for pick up.



 A “follow up” appointment is designed to offer the customer a second look at a favorite item or to come back to finalize purchases and get measured. This appointment type is usually used for a bride coming back to place an order for accessories or bridesmaids coming back to get measured.
