There is a standard $15 booking fee for all first appointments. This fee is non-refundable unless your appointment is canceled with more than 24 hours notice. This fee helps to prevent no-shows and last-minute cancellations. The fee may be applied towards the purchase of a Luxx Nova gown.
HOW MANY APPOINTMENTS MAY I HAVE?
We understand it can be hard to make a decision during your first appointment, so you are more than welcome to come back for a follow-up appointment. However, we will charge a $75 fee per appointment after your second appointment unless a gown has been purchased.
HOW MANY GUESTS MAY I BRING?
Due to the exclusivity of our boutique and the level of service, we can accommodate a bride and up to two guests per appointment to make sure everyone stays comfortable.
I FOUND MY GOWN, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Once you have found your gown, our consultant will take your measurements and fill the appropriate contract. Once your gown arrives at Luxx Nova, we do a thorough quality check and notify you when your gown is ready to be picked up.
PAYING FOR MY GOWN

Sample gowns and accessories, including veils, must be paid in full at time of purchase. Alteration costs are not included in the price of your gown. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Cash. We do not accept cheques.
DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT TO PICK UP MY GOWN?

CAN YOU SHIP MY GOWN TO ME?
Absolutely! We provide shipping within Canada and internationally. Please inquire at time of purchase on applicable shipping methods, rates and times.
DO YOU DO ALTERATIONS?
Every made-to-order gown will require some alterations so that it fits you perfectly. This could be as simple as a hem shortening, making a bustle or you may require more extensive adjustments. Although we don’t offer in-house alterations, we do have a list of recommended tailors in Vancouver, or you can choose your own! Alterations are a separate cost from the cost of your wedding gown.
