    Our viewing areas have seating for 4-5 people.

    Our wedding gowns are priced at $699 - $2800. The majority of our wedding gowns are priced around $1500. We do offer payment plan options.
  • Do you have gowns that can be purchased off the rack?
    Yes! Any of our wedding gowns can be purchased off the rack and taken home that day. This is a great option for brides with quick wear dates or who do not want to wait for a special order.
  • How far in advance should I order my wedding gown?
    We recommend ordering 9-12 months before your wedding, if not sooner. This provides enough time for your order to be placed with the designer, made to order, and shipped to our store in time for alterations.
  • How do I know what size I am?
    Every designer has different sizing and their own size chart to reference! Once you say YES to your dress and start your order, your stylist will take the appropriate measurements and look over the size chart for your dress designer to help you choose the perfect size.
  • What do I do with my gown after the wedding?
    After your big day has come and gone, you can bring your gown back to Bella Rose to be cleaned and preserved in a shadow box! Your gown will be fully cleaned and placed in a shadow box to stay good-as-new for a lifetime. Bella Brides receive $50 off.

    We do not perform alterations in-house. We do have six experienced and trusted bridal seamstresses in the Twin Ports and one in the Twin Cities that we refer to. Please note that Bella Rose Bridal is not responsible for work done by any seamstress.
  • When should I book alterations?
    Due to the skill level of bridal seamstresses, they book up FAST. We recommend calling them as soon as you order your gown. We will give you an estimated time of dress arrival and your seamstress will book your appointments based on wedding date.
