Frequently Asked Questions

Below you'll find answers to the questions we get asked about purchasing boutique and wedding dresses

Do I need an appointment to try on dresses?

We do prefer appointments for Bridal, so the bride can have her own fitting room and a personal Bridal Consultant guiding her through the appointment. We advise that Brides bring a small wedding party with them (3-4 guests)
For a prom dress consultation, an appointment is not required however, each prom girl must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Do I have to pay for the dress in full upfront?

A 50% deposit is required when purchasing or ordering any gown from us. We then do not ask for any further payment until the dress arrives in store. The dress does not need to be paid in full until alterations take place or it leaves the store.

Do I have to take my dress home as soon as it arrives in store?

We are more than happy to store any gown in store until the day of the event for no extra charge, even if the gown is paid for in full.

Can Mousetrap provide me with an alterations service?

We are happy to recommend an experienced seamstress who works alongside our business. Any alterations are charged in addition to the cost of the dress and are not included.
