What does an appointment entail?

“In this light-filled West Chelsea loft, there’s no bridal appropriate playlist, it’s usually 90’s R&B and champagne or Peroni, there’s no pretentious fussiness, there’s down to earth staff who actually care about finding something you love, a beloved English Bulldog who greets you at the door, racks and racks of the most diversely different gowns that sit somewhere between ready to wear and bridal as well as access to their archives, a library of laces and exquisite imported fabrics available to choose for custom orders, patternmakers, tailors and seamstresses right there on site for fittings, and at the heart of the brand is Katharine Polk - a designer who disregards the rules and quite simply and powerfully, just creates what she loves”…as described in The Lane

How many guests are allowed in my appointment?

Houghton allows up to 2 guests during your visit. As much as we would love for all your loved ones to be able to share in the experience, we find that it is much less stressful for the bride-to-be when she limits her audience.
