Your child’s wedding is a very exciting time in your life. We know a lot of moms tend to focus on their children before themselves so we put together this comprehensive guide to help our Mothers of the Brides and Grooms through the processes of shopping for their dress for their child’s big day! We want to make sure you are feeling confident and beautiful too!

Mother of the Bride Dresses Take Less Time

Mother of the Bride dresses take less time than the typical 12-14 months it takes for bridal dresses to come in…

At Ivory & Main, we recommend shopping for your dress at least 6 months before the wedding date. We special order every gown from the designers who each have different ship times! If stock is available, you can expect a dress to arrive in less than 2 months. For those that don’t hold stock- it can take at least 4 months to arrive!

Find the Perfect Dress

Ivory & Main has a second location in Port Jefferson, New York.

Port Jefferson’s boutique is for our curvy ladies who need formalwear and everyday wear in their size! Walk-ins are welcome, but we recommend making an appointment to work with one of our trained stylists to answer all your questions! Sayville no longer carries any MOB Dresses. So, make sure you head to the north shore to find your formalwear dress!

All About Alterations

Don’t forget to factor in alterations for your gown.

Ivory & Main offers alterations at our Sayville location! Dresses are ordered according to the designers’ size chart and how your measurements match up. Every dress will need alterations even if it’s just a hem or adding cups! Our alterations price breakdown is available on your contract when you purchase your gown! Schedule your first fitting about 6-8 weeks before the event date.


Formal gowns rarely go on sale, except for this time!

Our dresses run from about $350 up to $1200! Discuss your budget with your stylist to ensure you don’t fall in love with a gown above your price range! Payment is made in full when you purchase a gown. Discounts are rare, so make sure to keep reading to learn about our current sale!

Sample Sale

Let’s make some room for new styles

Many dresses have officially been discontinued by the designer so they can NOT be ordered. From NOW until Sunday, July 14th these samples are available for a discount of up to 50% OFF to be purchased Off-The-Rack! This is your LAST CHANCE to find these styles! This does not count towards other samples that are currently active.
