Why shop at urban bride inc? 

Each dress is hand selected from other bridal shops, past brides who put them on consignment and wedding dress designers.  

What sizes do you carry?

We carry bridal sizing 0-28, currently. Since our dresses are sold off-the-rack and we get new dresses in every week, the selection and sizes available changes all the time.
We also order gowns from Size 2-30. These require order time up to 6 months. 

We know how stressful (and expensive!) wedding dress shopping can be.

We offer a curated collection current designer special order, gently loved and sample designer dresses at unimaginable prices - up to 90% off retail prices.

Not only that, but we provide the ultimate bridal experience so that you can feel, see and try on dresses. We truly take all the risks and stress out of purchasing a discounted sample dress. 

what is consignment?

When should I start shopping?

We always say, “the earlier the better”. You want to check “buy a wedding dress” off your to-do list! This means wedding dress shopping, ideally, 8-12 months before your wedding. Yes, with us, you get to take your gown home the same day, so we are also perfect for brides with tighter timelines. You still want to factor in time for alterations as necessary.
Consignment means local brides or bridesmaids bring us their gowns for us to resell for them! It’s a 50/50 split once the gowns sell. Our inventory consists of dresses that are brand new, samples from bridal boutiques, our designers, and pre-owned gowns that have been dry cleaned.

are alterations included in the price of the dress? 

Alterations are not included in the price of your dress. When you purchase your wedding dress, your bridal stylist will do our best to share the price range of your specific alterations based on what you will need.

We do have an  independent seamstress available located adjacent to our location to answer your alterations questions. 

What are your gown prices?

Our off the rack consignment and sample dresses are available up to 30-70% off retail. Our dresses are priced based on the year, designer, style, retail price and condition. Our wedding dress prices typically start at $500 with the majority between $700-$2,000. Most are available for under $1,200. 

Do you accept refunds or exchanges?

No. All sales are final.

Do you offer dry cleaning? 

After your wedding we offer a cleaning and preservation service . Cleaning your dress will remove most stains that may have happened on wedding day while preserving your dress ensures no additional damage is added. 

can i get my "off the rack" dress cleaned? 

Yes! We are happy to coordinate a dry cleaning service for your wedding dress. Once wed dresses must be drycleaned before it hits our salesfloor. 

Can I shop the made to order and consignment pieces  too?

For our brides open to special ordering a gown (which takes up to 10 months), we recommend booking just ONE appointment at Urban Bride. You can shop all our inventory with one appointment.
