Frequently Asked Questions

With 20 years of bridal and prom experience, we can answer almost every question. If we don't have the answer, we will point you to someone who does!! If you don't see the answer to your question, please contact us by email for the quickest response.

1.

Do I need an appointment to come into your store?

Usually, no.  During regular posted business hours on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 12:30 to 5:30 and Saturday from 9-1, no appointments are necessary.  However if you want a more personal experience or are bringing a large wedding party for measurements, please call ahead to make an appointment even during these times.  Why? Because no two appointments will be sheduled for the same time unless added staff is available to cover the busy time.  Appointments are always given priority for dressing rooms and consultations.

If these hours do not fit your schedule, appointments may be made for any day or time outside the posted hours.


2.

When should I order?

The answer to this question depends upon what you are ordering. See the catagory below that fits your needs.

Wedding Gown

Most wedding gowns require 12 to 14 weeks for delivery.  Bridal designers and consultants recommend ordering six to eight months before the wedding to allow for alterations after the gown arrives. 

If your wedding is closer than the needed time to order, there are several options available.  All gowns may be purchased off the rack at Rushville Bridal.  We can call designers to check for stock in their warehouses for immediate shipping.  A limited number of designers have quick service programs with delivery between 2 and 4 weeks.

Bridesmaid Gown

Bridesmaid gowns are similar to wedding gowns with delivery times of 8 to 10 weeks.  Recommended ordering is still 6 months before the wedding.

Bridesmaid gowns may also be purchased off the rack but multiple gowns of the same style are not available in the store.  Designers will also not stock many of these gowns.  Some designers will select their best sellers for hanging stock or quick shipments. Rush fees will apply to many of these quick service options.

Prom Gown

Prom gowns are very different from wedding gowns.  These gowns are usually available for a short time period and discontinued quickly.  Most designers will produce a limited quantity of each gown and when they are sold, they are no longer available.  A few designers will offer special orders. But many times, the time required for those orders are too long to be useful.  Therefore, most prom gowns are purchased off the rack.  If the gown you want is not in the store or is the wrong size or color, we are happy to check with the designer to fill your order. If the designer has the gown, it will be shipped right away.  If the designer does not have the gown, a ship date will be given for approximate arrival.  Ship dates will range from 6 to 14 weeks.

So the short story for prom is SHOP EARLY!

Tuxedo Rentals

Since tuxes are rentals and not purchase items, order time is much shorter.  Recommended time to order tuxedos is 6 weeks before the wear date.  This means that all persons in the wedding party need to be measured and pay the deposit at least 6 weeks before the wear date. Tuxedo rentals will be available for orders up to 10 days before the wear date but may have limited selection of styles and accessories.  Tuxedos ordered less than 10 days before the wear date will also be assessed a rush order fee.


3.

What are your prices?

There are three types of wedding gowns in the store.  Gowns which have been discontinued from the designer are either $95 or $195.  These gowns are all sizes and colors but cannot be ordered differently.  Informal wedding gowns which usually have no train and less beading start around $200 and go up to $800.  Wedding gowns with a full train, beading and/or lace start at $400 and continue to $1000. 

Bridesmaid gowns range from $79 to over $200.

Flowergirl dresses start at $50 to over $200

Prom gowns start at $79 to over $800.

Tuxedo rentals start at $59.99 to $169.99.  This includes the coat, pants, shirt, vest and tie.  Shoes and other accessories are additional.


4.

Do you have small sizes and plus sizes?

Rushville Bridal tries to stock all sizes.  Currently there are wedding and bridesmaid gowns in the store from size 2 to size 30. Since gowns are available to purchase off the rack, selection varies with each size.  Our goal is to have at least 3-4 gowns in every size for customers to try on. In the past year, we have focused more of our inventory in the curvy category. We have many styles in sizes 16-30 for wedding gowns, bridesmaids and mothers.
