Frequently Asked Questions

What sizes do you carry?


We carry anything from size 0-26, with most of our dresses falling in the 8-16 range. As we are consignment this is ever-changing as we're always getting new dresses in. We are currently working on expanding our plus size range, so if you or someone you know is looking to consign their dress please reach out! Always feel free to contact us prior to booking an appointment to see what our stock is like!

Why should I choose consignment?


Sixpence is a modern consignment shop that provides beautiful options to brides looking for a more sustainable choice for their wedding. As the fashion industry is notoriously wasteful, choosing consignment is one of the best ways to lessen environmental impact on such an important occasion! We take on dresses from brides and boutiques trying to get rid of their designer samples, and ensure no dress goes to waste! We're revamping the consignment experience, bringing you some of your favourite bridal designers at amazing prices, so you don't have to compromise for the dress of your dreams. It is our greatest honour to play a small part in such a big day for our brides!

When should I start looking for my dress?


As Sixpence is a consignment shop, we have the special advantage of allowing you to walk away with your dress the day you purchase it! Many bridal boutiques have long wait times involved in order to recieve your dress, but we've had brides shop with us 3 days before their wedding and still walk away with a gown they feel incredible in! In general, we recommend shopping at least 2-3 months before your wedding date, to allow time for any alterations you may want to have done.




Do I need an appointment to try dresses on?


Yes! Sixpence is an intimate bridal boutique experience, and therefore allows for one bride at a time. We are appointment-only, and this way each of our brides recieve our undivided attention! To book an appointment, click HERE.




What's your price range?


Our dresses range from $800-$3000, with most of the dresses falling in the $800-$1800 price range. With us being consignment this is ever changing, and we work hard to bring dresses into the shop that are up to par with our quality and design standards.




What can I expect at an appointment?


Each appointment booked at Sixpence is a private, one-on-one consultation with one of our bridal stylists. Upon your arrival we will give you a little run down about the shop and guide you to the area where you can start looking for your dream dress! Based on your vision, likes and dislikes, we will help you find a dress that makes you feel like your best self. As we are consignment, we direct your to gowns that are in-or-around your size, as we do not do any ordering of dresses. All of our dresses are sold off the rack, so if you find "the one" you get to leave with it! We do also offer a layaway program, where you can pay 60% of the cost the day you say " yes" and the remaining 40% balance 30-60 days later. We ask that you arrive no more than 5 minutes prior to your appointment. We only take one appointment at a time and do not have a waiting area. We recommend our brides wear nude undergarments and little or no makeup. This helps us keep our dresses in the best condition possible for all our brides!




Do you have a return policy?


All purchases at Sixpence are final sale.




Do you have parking available?


There is free 2 hour street parking in front of the shop and on the surrounding street blocks.




Do you carry Mother of the Bride/Groom? Prom? Flower Girl dresses?


Not at the moment. We are exclusively bridal at this time to provide lots of range for our brides to choose from.
