are you local/can you return to MN for 2-5 alteration appointments?
have you tried on any wedding gowns before your appointment at Andrea's Vintage?
How to Prepare
Please allow one hour for your appointment
Please note that we request everyone wear a mask, as well as everyone present be fully vaccinated. Andrea is highly immunocomprimised and our space is small, so social distancing is impossible. This is an honor system, so please help us protect each other!
Please come free of tranferable makeup, lipstick, self-tanning products and heavy fragrance. Our gowns are not samples; they're truly one-of-a-kind, never to be repeated
We suggest you bring a camera and 1-3 people; unfortunately we only have 3 chairs, so there isn't room for more guests
Please wear a very supportive, non-strapless bra
Expect that many of the gowns in our inventory will not immediately fit you; we custom fit your dress just for you
We make the unorthodox recommendation of popping into any basic standard bridal shop before your appointment at Andrea’s Vintage because ano-pressure stop in another shop can provide this valuable context of objectivity. Our shop can be a tricky "first time out" and if a bride isn't prepared to make decisions and take a dress home then we unfortunately have encountered some heartbreak when they ARE ready to purchase some days/weeks later and their dress no longer exists.
prices range approx. $700-$2,200
a small selection of gowns are more and less than this
sizes range 000 Petite-14 Tall
we have an ongoing commitment to increasing our inventory of
vintage and vintage-inspired wedding dresses in a diversity of sizes
The most common feedback from our brides after working with my daughter Nikolina:
"I had NO idea this dress existed and it looks nothing like what I thought I wanted, but I'm so glad I found your shop because its totally 'me' and no one else on earth has this exact dress."
This is the highest compliment we can get, because we may have just met you but we work hard to figure out what feels just right for you. And each gown is as unique as our lovely clientele! We want to make this easy and special, and work dilligently to match the right dress with the right bride.
A Note From Andrea's Vintage Bridal
A studio filled with irresplaceable gowns, mirrors,
and breakable objects with no crawling room
is not a good (or safe) space for children.
We request our shopping appts are adults only, thank you!
