Congratulations to you!
I have always loved fashion, especially wedding dresses!
There is nothing that brings me more joy and happiness is working with brides and help them plan their wedding and share the experience of helping them find their dream wedding dress! I don't consider working in my Bridal Salon "work". I consider it "fun".. because it is... !
I see the joy in the faces of the Brides that come to their first appointment. They are glowing with happiness and tons of excitement, and of course, a little nervous! In reality, their life will be taking a new transition. It's an experience beyond words. I get to know these brides and their families quite well throughout the process!
Our Bridal Boutique is located in a landmark courtyard and surrounded by Art Galleries, Restaurants and antique shops that have become "icons" in Carmel-by-the-Sea, We have been here for twelve (12) years. Collezione Fortuna Fashion Boutique ( known then) was the first to ever bring "high-end" evening wear and set a new fashion trend, including Bridal before anyone else. We have been extremely successful in serving the locals living in Carmel, Carmel Valley, Pebble Beach, the entire Monterey Peninsula and
SHOP for your wedding dress in a calm, stress-free environment. Working with Celebrity Stylist, Cathy Montante, we offer "one and one" attention to the Bride which helps her to make the most important buying decision of her lifetime which is her wedding dress.
Our appointments are fun, stress-free and always a positive experience. Our focus is on "you " , the "Bride to be" and her entire Bridal party.!

In order to keep our expertise and knowledge as Professional as possible, we have adopted the following appointment policies to serve you better:
1. We kindly inform that all cell phones be turned and that we do not allow photos of any kind during the appointment. This also means no cell phones or photos inside the dressing room! You are welcome to take as many photos of the dress you "fall in love with and say yes to, PURCHASED " once your Contract is signed, deposits are paid or the dress is paid in full and is considered yours! We kindly ask that you be respectful of our store policy! We realize every Bridal Boutique has their own "photo policy", however, this is ours! We KINDLY ask you respect our policy, please!
2. No food or drink other than water. Try to eat a light meal before your appointment You will feel ready and go for it!
3. No more than 2-3 people who you can trust with giving you sincere feedback. Statistics show you do not need an "entourage" with you at your appointment. This creates an "over-welming," stressful, atmosphere, especially for the bride who is simply at her appointment to ready buy her wedding dress! Remember, this is "THE BRIDES" moment, and "HER decision is considered "final" when selecting her wedding dress! She has to love it more than anyone else and she doesn't have to hit 50 Bridal Salons and try on dozens of dresses if she "already found the one just to be sure.!"
4. As much as we love pets, please leave them at home., unless they are "SERVICE PETS" for the handicapped.
5. Children ARE always welcome, however, no strollers allowed inside the store. Tired, hungry, and ill children need to be left with a qualified childcare provider to make your buying experience pleasant as possible!
6. Walk-ins are ALWAYS WELCOME and we are more than happy to work with you. However, if there is an appointment scheduled during that time, we must give priority to the scheduled appointment. We are more than happy to schedule an appointment for you for another day and time and give you the same priority.
We do not charge for appointments, however, as a courtesy to us and to other customers who are on our waiting list, (especially on weekends), we ask that you give 48 Hour notice if you cannot keep your appointment.
We will give you a call 2-3 days or by the "preferred method of contact Provided" when you made your appointment as a "friendly " reminder.
Please call us back to confirm you are going to keep your appointment. or we will replace that appointment from someone on our cancellation list waiting for an appointment. We will be happy to reschedule your appointment for another time.
There is a $100 "credit card hold" for any appointment made by anyone your behalf or SEVERAL WEEKS IN ADVANCE! Your credit card information is taken over the phone and kept on file. We charge for "NO Shows" and any "unconfirmed" appointments, and this is non-refundable. To confirm your appointment we kindly ask that you call the store (831)626-1287 and speak to a live person.
