Prom dress shopping is walk in only. No appointment is needed for prom dress shopping.

Our prom dress sizes range from 00-28.

Designer prom dresses and formalwear in our store range from $199 to $899. If we don’t have your size and color you desire in the dress you choose, we will special order different sizes and colors if it is available.

Absolutely! We believe every girl deserves the prom dress of her dreams, but we want to give them ample time to pay for it. We offer a layaway plan that requires a small deposit. The deposit depends on the price of the dress. After the deposit is paid the balance of the dress will be due March 1st for prom dresses purchased in the months of September - February. In the months the dress is purchased in March -May, final payment is due in 2 weeks from purchase. In the months the dress is purchased from June to August the balance is due September 1st. For special orders we require a half down payment and then the second half of your balance due when the dress arrives. Only $100 down is needed to put a prom dress on layaway for a dress under $500 and $200 down is needed for dresses over $500.

We do not offer seamstress services at our store. Our stylists are knowledgeable in minor alterations but leave the act of physically doing the work to professionals. If you purchase your gown here we will steam your dress free of charge after the alterations are made. Just bring your dress back within 2 days of the event.

While most people say that it's very important for all the men in a wedding party to wear matching tuxedos or suits, some brides prefer to have their groom stand out in a different look. However, most brides prefer to have the entire wedding party (fathers included) in matching tuxedos or suits and have the groom wear different colored accessories (vest and/or tie), usually ivory or white. Brides often have their fathers and ushers wear a colored vest and/or tie that's different from the groomsmen's to distinguish their roles in the wedding. Fathers often wear neutral colors (charcoal, silver, black, etc.) or a color to accent the mother's dress.

Any member of the wedding party can stop into any tuxedo rental store or most bridal boutiques to get properly measured for their tuxedo or suit. Then, you can call, email, or fax their information to LA Formal & Prom charge an out-of store-measurement fee, typically $5 to $10. For out-of-store measurements, we need the following measurements: Neck, over arm, chest, waist, out seam, arm length, shoe size, jacket size, hip, height, and weight. (Most stores won't measure your height and weight, but we always use them to double check all measurements. If it wasn't included in their measurements, please add it to the list. Like most men's formal wear boutiques, we're not responsible for incorrect measurements from different locations. Should replacement pieces be needed, customers with out-of-store measurements will be required to pay for their own shipping and handling.

A good rule of thumb is to have all the men you want in your wedding photos to wear tuxedos or suits. Obviously, the groom and his attendants including groomsmen, ushers, and ring bearers should be in tuxedos or suits, but you should also consider other family members including fathers, brothers, and grandfathers.

We recommend that you do not measure yourself! Tuxedo and suit measurements are precise measurements that are not the same as your jean size or typical measurement. By getting your measurements taken professionally, you can often avoid receiving an ill-fitting tuxedo and having to get replacement pieces or alterations.

LA Formal & Prom has formal wear specialists who are trained for onsite alterations such as adjusting the sleeve or trouser length. In the event that an item needs to be re-ordered, LA Formal & Prom will do everything possible to arrange for the item to arrive in the store for the event. If you try on and pick up your tuxedo or suit by 4:00pm on Thursday, it will ensure enough time for replacement pieces to arrive if needed.

We will register your prom dress to 2 different schools. This will prevent our store, and our sister store in Fargo, from selling the same dress in the same color to your school. We will, however, sell the same dress in a different color.

In the months of December and January we will consider bringing in a dress for you to try on for a small fee that would be applied to either that dress or a different dress in our store if you don’t like the dress ordered in for you. Management needs to approve the dress and this option must be discussed upon before your purchase of a dress. A notation will be printed on your invoice if this option applies.


Absolutely! If we carry the designer in our store we can order any dress from that designer you see online. Our dresses are priced at suggested retail so the price you pay with us will be the best price you find for any current style. We also offer the lowest price guarantee!

If you order your dress from us we will register the dress to your school and steam your dress for no charge. and we have access to all designer inventory so we can give you accurate information on delivery and status of your order. If there is an issue with the dress after it arrives, we will contact the company on your behalf. An most importantly, you are supporting a local business. Without your support, we wouldn’t be able to keep the store open. Thank you for your support in advance!
