This is probably the first and most important step of the dress buying process. This allows your consultant to best accommodate you and find the absolute perfect dress – price point included. Gowns at Dress Gallery range from $1200-$3000 with no additional fees for plus size dresses. The average price point for gowns here at DG is $1700.
Due to COVID-19, we had to limit the amount of guests we can welcome into our store. Because of this policy, we learned something interesting – 6 people seems to be the perfect size group to support you during your dress journey. It gives you a totally manageable hype squad and keeps the appointment on track. We’ve decided to keep this recommendation for everyone’s ongoing safety along with making sure the focus is right where it belongs – on you!
Bridal tends to run really, really small. Because of that, the clothing size for your everyday clothes will probably be smaller than your bridal gown. Don’t stress – no one is going to see your tag, anyway!
As you’re trying gowns on, our sample sizes may be too big or too small. That’s okay, our trained stylists know exactly which gowns will work, which ones won’t, and how to best show off the dresses. Don’t let the size deter you from falling in love with a dress!
We receive sample gowns that are in one color, one size. While we can order gowns in a range of sizes and color palettes, our store samples are limited to the singular dress we have in stock. Don’t worry! That’s what our consultants are for. We’ll get creative with clamps, clips, liners, and more to show you off the way you deserve.
For plus size brides, we carry over 150+ gowns in store in sizes 16+. Our Pinterest features a board of all our designer plus size gowns!
Formalwear can be complicated to get into. That’s why our trained consultants are in the dressing room with you to help you in & out of your gowns.

Our job is just to make sure you look and feel your very best. We have robes to wear between dresses and will accommodate all levels of modesty.
We are the only store in the state of Kansas with entirely private bridal suites. That means you’re in your own space, with just your entourage and your consultant, so the focus can be exactly where it needs to be – on you. That also means no sharing mirrors with other customers or parading in front of a store of strangers – just you & your loved ones having moments together finding your dream dress!
