We must check availability of your chosen item based on three criteria: your wear date, the manufacturer's delivery schedule, and our shipping time to you. We cannot check availability until you place your order or until you contact us to check on a specific item. At this moment, if your item(s) is available, we will place a purchase order with the manufacturer to ensure that your package arrives in time for your wear date. Inventory is subject to change every minute. We keep our website as updated as possible; however, we can not guarantee the item you want will be available when you order it. If your item(s) is not available, we will not charge your credit card, and we will contact you to discuss the situation.
E-mail us at, or call us at 864-263-4371 with your designer, style numbers, size, color, and wear date. We will check availability of your choices and e-mail you promptly.
Orders may be placed on our secure e-commerce website. Customers not wishing to place their order online without first speaking to one of our representatives may email their phone number to Please include an appropriate time to contact you and your time zone or state from where you are calling. One of our service representatives will contact you to take your order information within 24 business hours. If you prefer, call us at 864-263-4371 between 10 AM and 5 PM EST.
The only colors available are the ones listed or described on our website. If there is a picture of the color you want, and you cannot figure out the color by name, call us and we will do our best to find it for you. Often colors appear slightly different on the computer monitor than in person, and embellishments or designs may be difficult to discern. We will discuss the details and differences with you in order to clarify any questions you may have.
Size charts and instructions help you determine which size best matches your measurements. Each designer has his own sizing chart and their dresses run true to and are based off. Please choose the correct size chart located on the pages of every item on our website and review your pageant girl's carefully taken measurements against this. We can communicate with you to determine what we think will be the best size for you, but the final decision is entirely yours.
All orders require measurements. Our Fashion Consultant team will confirm that you are ordering the correct size for the dress style of your choice based on your measurements. You can follow our "How to Measure" video on each dress page or have the measurements taken professionally. Dresses come in standard sizes, so alterations may be needed.
Additional charges may incur for certain specifications. The charges vary from designer to designer and reflect their designer's set fee.
Extra size fee: May be applicable on garments size 12 and over.
Ordering time: Most of our designers offer a rush service for orders that have been placed with a near wear date and they can shorten their standard production schedule. The prices vary between designer. You can call/email us to discuss this.
Drop ship: In certain occasions there is a need to expedite the shipping to ensure the dress arrives by the wear date. Drop Ship means that the gown will ship from the designer directly to the client. This service incurs additional fees and they are different from upgraded shipping (overnight,2nd day, 3rd day, ground). Therefore, in some cases upgraded shipping may be needed in addition to the drop ship fee.
Alterations: Most dresses typically require minor alterations for a perfect fit. We can provide alteration services to our customers that are able to come into our brick-and-mortar store for a price. Alterations are very personal and specific; changes are made to fit you. We recommend that you look locally for a seamstress/alteration shop with formal gowns experience.
