Frequently Asked Questions

Wedding planning can be stressful, but gown shopping doesn’t need to be! We want your bridal shopping experience to be fun, relaxing and helpful. Here is some information about shopping to make your wedding gown experience as stress-free and fun as possible.

What Does Off The Rack mean?

Prepare to fall in love! The gown you try on in the store is the gown you take home. No need to order and wait for your gown to come in, the gown you see is the gown you get! Please note that we do not do any holds on our gowns or accessories at Off The Rack, so be sure to act fast.

Where do your gowns come from?

Our gowns are brand new, directly from the designers. They’re never consignment gowns. Many of the gowns are overstock of current or discontinued styles. Some are sample gowns, and others are one of a kind gowns directly from the manufacturer. They have NEVER been altered, NEVER owned, and NEVER WORN DOWN THE AISLE!

When should I start Shopping?

You can start shopping whenever you would like! Since you can take the gown home with you the same day, there’s no need to worry about meeting deadlines to order the gown. That being said, we recommend not waiting too long. If you have the time, it’s always best to start a little bit earlier to leave time for any alterations you may need.

Do I need an appointment to shop?

We definitely recommend booking an appointment to make sure you get the time you need from our friendly bridal specialists. However, walk-ins are always welcome to browse the selection of gowns. Without an appointment, we cannot guarantee you will be able to try anything on. Our bridal specialist will measure you, let you know what sizes you should be looking for, and help you get started. Remember, we don’t place orders, you’re buying the gowns you try on!

Who should I bring to my appointment?

Bring along someone whose opinion you trust and respect to help you in your search. This could be your mother, sister, bridesmaid, a close friend or another relative. Who knows you best? An extra set of eyes can be extremely helpful, but limit the number of people who come with you, as we have limited seating. Too many opinions will likely confuse you and lead to a frustrating experience. Such feedback can be invaluable. But remember, it is your wedding, so you should make the final decision after carefully considering all of your choices.

How does the gown selection process work during the appointment?

To help you get started with your search, your specialist will discuss sizing and price point at the start of your appointment. They will then help you select 6 – 8 dresses in a size closet to your size to start trying.

What Do I need to Bring?

Just bring yourself! You may wish to wear light or nude coloured undergarments. If you already have the undergarments that you will be wearing on your wedding day, it would be best to wear them the day of the appointment, or at least bring them with you. Every wedding gown you try on will be someone’s wedding gown one day, so please wear minimal amounts of makeup as you are going to be trying on wedding gowns in ivory, white, champagne or blush. We will also have you and your guest remove your outdoor footwear at the door to help protect the gowns. Slippers will be provided or you’re welcome to bring your own indoor footwear.

What is the price range of the gowns?

We offer designer gowns at incredible prices everyday, meaning everything is always on sale! The price range starts at approximately $400 and goes up to $2,500.

Can I bring food or drinks?

We ask that you do not bring any outside food or drinks to the store as our gowns are out of bags for the best shopping experience. To keep our gowns in the best condition possible, we want to avoid any chances for spilling or stains.

Can we bring champagne?

No alcohol is to be brought into the store as we are not a licensed establishment. As a thank you for purchasing, you will be going home with a complimentary bottle of Pelee Island Wine!

Do you take gowns on consignment or purchase used gowns?

No, we do not take consignment gowns and every gown you see in the store is NEW!
