    We encourage you to go where you feel most comfortable and can find the dress of your dreams. Our main goal at I&M is to make sure you have up-to-date options to try on at the time of your gown search. We provide you with an atmosphere where you and your body type is understood. At the end of the day, we want you to be comfortable and love the dress you chose. The experience at Ivory & Main is unlike other bridal experiences because we cater to the plus size community exclusively.

    Ivory & Main caters mostly to women sizes 12-32. Sample sizes for brides start between 22/24 and go all the way up to a size 34 in some designers. When ordering a gown, we take your measurements and find the best size for you. Shopping with us is an all-inclusive experience, as we can order any size between 2-34. Our stylists are professionally trained to clip gowns perfectly to your body so you can envision how the dress will look/ feel in your size!
  • Do we need to make an appointment at Ivory & Main?
    Appointments are required at our boutique. We are a narrow sized shop and in order to give all of our brides the attention they deserve during their visit with us we do ask that you make an appointment to ensure that happens for all.
  • Can we bring Children to the appointment with us?
    We do ask that you leave the kiddos at home during your visit. We want to be able to have you feel relaxed and have the best experience possible to find your gown. Seeing as we are a small scale boutique there are also times that other patrons will be in the store as well, so we want everyone to have a stress free time picking out their dress
  • How soon should I begin wedding dress shopping?
    Your search for the perfect gown should begin about 12-14 months prior to your wedding date in order to have access to all designers. Each designer has a different processing time, so shopping within less than one year to your wedding date may restrict your search. However, we can accommodate shopping for your wedding under the one year mark. Be sure to bring this to your stylists attention when booking your appointment.
  • What should I bring with me to my appointment?
    Undergarments are always a good idea (i.e..Strapless bra, shapers)! Since our stylist is in the room with you assisting with the dresses, be sure to wear undergarments you are comfortable with them seeing.
  • How long will my appointment be?
    Most appointments are between 60-90 minutes on average. This time can also vary of course, depending on each bride and their individual decisions.
  • Can I bring food and drink with me to my appointment?
    Unfortunately, because of the type of merchandise housed in our bridal boutique we do not allow most outside drinks or any food in the boutique. If you do happen to come in with either, we will ask you to leave it on the counter in front. We do suggest you eat or snack prior to coming to your appointment, most brides and family members are happier with a full stomach.
  • Who should I bring to my appointment?
    Your closest family and/or friends -- the people who are supportive of you and will give their honest and loving advice. We do suggest you keep your party smaller and no more than 3 people at a time. Our try on area comfortably fits 3, however, if your guests are ok with squeezing we can accommodate up to 4 with a regular appointment type. Any more than 4 guests and we require a VIP appointment in order to accommodate your additional guests. Please see the section Boujee Bride for more information on VIP appointments!
