Frequently Asked Questions
Does Diane's do alterations?
Diane's Formal Affair has an in-house seamstress. She does alterations only on dresses sold in Diane's Formal Affair or Diane's Too. She does alterations by appointment only, and her pricing is separate. If you would like to schedule an appointment with our seamstress, then call 205-221-3570 and let us know!
Do you allow photos while trying on dresses?
Diane's Formal Affair does not allow photos of our dresses prior to purchase. We want the best possible shopping experience for our brides. We do not have professional lighting or photography in our store; photographs can not compare to the beauty you see when you try the dress on.
Do I need an appointment?
Diane's does require an appointment on Saturdays and Sundays due to the high traffic in our store on the weekends. Appointments through the week are recommended, but they are not required. Customers who wish to look at bridesmaids or mother of the bride dresses do not need to book an appointment.
What will my appointment be like?
Each bride gets a unique experience in her own bridal suite. We recommend you bring at most four people to shop with you. Too many different opinions can leave a bride torn and confused! Bring the people whose opinions matter most and share your vision of your special day. Weekday appointments last two hours, and weekend appointments last an hour and thirty minutes. Our bridal stylists are experts in helping find your dream dress, and we can't wait to meet you!
