Have a question?? We have an answer….. The following is a list of our most frequently asked questions :
I’m looking to book an appointment to try on Bridal gowns….
We are a design studio and not a traditional bridal store. We DO NOT carry a wide variety of gowns from different designers. We DO carry a selection of redesigned and upcycled gowns in a variety of styles. These gowns can be viewed online with product specific such as size….. If you see a gown you like in your size, please contact us to book an appointment! If you are looking to have something designed, we suggest you narrow down a design/ style of gown you are wanting made, OR find a gown that is workable (meaning it fits and with some tweaking and redesigning it will be perfect!). Once you have done your research, please contact us to book your appointment!
Do I need an appointment or is drop in ok?
Yes, please book ahead. We can serve you better with a one on one appointment, PLUS Because we operate and sell our accessoires mainly online ( www.xoxocouture.ca), our studio is based out of our home. So please, no surprises and book ahead.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org OR Call 1604-562-2895 to book an appointment at our West Kelowna studio.
I’m looking for a Bridesmaids dress… Do you have any?
YES, We do carry a small selection of new or gently used bridesmaids gowns. Please be advised that we do not order gowns in, so what you see is what you get. Our Bridesmaid gowns can be viewed online with product specifics such as style, color and size….. If you see a gown you like in your size, please contact us to book an appointment!
