frequently asked questions

Where are you located?

We are tucked away in the old school, been there forever Gateway Plaza on Sunrise Blvd. and Federal Highway directly next to the famous japanse market. Feel free to park directly in front of the boutique for free.

Do I need an appointment?

Yup! Lighthouse Bridal is an by appointment only boutique. Please keep in mind that our one on one private bridal appointments are recommended for brides who are ready to find and purchase their wedding gown. If you are curious and just looking to browse or you would like to pick up accessories and gifts, feel free to give us a call to see when we're in. If we're with a bride, check out Jezebel Gift Shop or grab some sushi next door!

How Far in advance should I purchase my dress?

We recommend that you begin shopping for your dress at least 8-12 months before your wedding, as it can take up to 6 months for your gown to arrive. We also suggest giving yourself an extra 8-12 weeks for alterations leading up to your wedding date. 

What should I bring to my appointment?

Please bring your wedding day undergarments[commando underwear, strapless bra, spanx]. Come picture ready if you please but we do ask that you wear light makeup to keep our gowns free of stains and makeup smudges.

How long will my appointment be?

Our private one-on-one bridal appointments are one full hour. We want you to touch, swoon and try on any and all gowns you choose during your one hour appointment. Should you need more than one hour, we can schedule accordingly. If you're traveling from outside the South Florida area and would like to request a lengthier appointment, feel free to shoot us an email!

Who should I bring to my appointment?

First and foremost, good vibes. Bring your closest girlfriends, and or family members with you. We're a small boutique and would recommend keeping your fan base on the smaller side to be sure your appointment runs smoothly and stress free.

What size are your sample gowns?

Each sample gown varies by designer. The majority of our samples are a size 8 to 12 but your custom gown can be ordered up to a size 24 with most designers. We will pin you in each gown so you'll get the best idea of what your gown will look like in your size.

What is the price range of your gowns?

Our made to order gowns range from $1,000 to $3,400, with the majority falling between $1,850 and $2,500.

What is the process of purchasing a gown at Lighthouse Bridal?

Your initial appointment will include a one-hour private fitting in our boutique. If you find ‘the one”, we will take your measurements and order your dress in the size closest to those measurements. At that point, we take a deposit of half. In about 6 months, when the gown is ready, we will notify you and you can do two things - either come back in for a follow up appointment to pick up your dress and do any final styling and/or inspections, OR we can ship it directly to you for an extra fee. Your made to order gown will probably still require alterations so be sure to give yourself enough time to meet with a seamstress and do any final tweaks and hemming. Along this journey we are happy to answer any and all questions you may have so please don’t hesitate to reach out. All gowns are final sale.
