Getting To Our New Location!

Our new store is located in the Historic Pritzlaff Building at 333 North Plankinton Avenue. 
We know that The Pritzlaff can be difficult to navigate, so take a look below at our detailed instructions about how to find us!

1. The Pritzlaff is located on the corner of St. Paul and North Plankinton - 
You'll want to enter on the space on foot via St. Paul (which runs East to West). 

2. Follow the orange "Ward 4 - 333" signs that will direct you to The Pritzlaff's beautiful cobblestone courtyard. 

3. In the courtyard, turn the corner slightly and you will see a large glass door labeled "333" - 
that will be your entrance to Miss Ruby's new location. 

 4. Once inside turn to the right slightly and you will see a large elevator - it's a little intimidating at first, but we think it adds to the building's unique, old-world charm! 

Take the elevator to the "2nd Floor Galleria"on floor 2!

5. Once you exit the elevator, go straight though the double doors in front of you - 
you will there see an office directory, which will help you guide your way!

6. Following the directional arrow, you'll go down a hallway that exudes The Pritzlaff's signature charm. There might be a small amount of construction going on (other suites in the building are still a work in progress), but you will able to find our completed space quite easily!

Miss Ruby Moving Sale FAQs

With out Moving Sale (and our big move!) quickly approaching, we thought that we would take the time to answer some FAQs about our sale so that everyone knows exactly what to expect before they come through our doors Friday afternoon. 

- Take a look at our FAQ's below - 

What Is Your Moving Sale?
Our Moving Sale is taking place so that we can sell some of our sample bridesmaid, mother of occasion, special occasion, and little white dresses before we move to our new location at The Pritzlaff. 

Is There Anything Wrong With Your Samples?
Our samples are all in excellent condition because we take great care of our dresses. With that being said, they occasionally have minor defects such as missing a hook & eye clasp, etc. All of our dresses are priced accordingly.

Can I Order a Dress From the Moving Sale in a Different Color or Size for My Bridesmaids?
If a dress does not say "discontinued" on the tag, it is likely able to be ordered in different colors and sizes. However, it can only be ordered for the ORIGINAL RETAIL PRICE. The discounted Moving Sale price is to purchase the sample dress we have in store ONLY

Will You Have Sample Bridal Gowns at Your Moving Sale?
We will have a limited number of bridal gown samples available for purchase. Please call Miss Ruby Boutique to inquire if a specific gown will be on our sale. 

Does Your Moving Sale Run All Day?
Our moving sale takes place during our Friday business hours: Noon - 6:00. While the sale is first come, first serve, please don't arrive before Noon - our doors won't be open before that time. 

What Sizes Are Your Samples?
The sizes of our bridesmaid and special occasion dresses vary by designer, but they all run between street sizes 6-14. If you are below or above that size range, it will be very difficult to find sample dresses at our sale that will fit you correctly. With that being said, a Miss Ruby Consultant can talk to you about alterations that can be done on a specific dress.

Do You Take Personal Checks?
No - The Moving Sale is Cash or Credit ONLY

What Is Your Return Policy?
All of our dresses are FINAL SALE.

2016 Bridal Trends from Chicago Bridal Market

At the end of September, the Miss Ruby Boutique buying team visited Chicago for 2016 Bridal Market. This yearly event features each designers brand new collections to bridal stores across the country. 

As we walked the market (its HUGE!) and visited the booths of our favorite designers, there were definitely some trends that you will soon see hitting bridal racks in 2016. Some we expected - others were a complete surprise. 

For the low-down on whats going to be popular in 2016 bridal fashion, read on for our take on the trends we saw at this years Bridal Market. 


For those who are not versed in fabrics: Crepe is a light, soft, and thin fabric with a more textured surface than silk or satin. This fabric makes for simple and sleek designs that feature clean lines and edges. 

With lace being the go-to trend for the last few years, dresses designed in a non-patterened crepe are meant to usher in the next generation of bridal gown trends. Rather than the rustic-elegant look, stylists are now leaning more towards an aesthetic that is more modern and sophisticated. 

We love lace, and were perhaps the most surprised at seeing this fabric in nearly every designer's 2016 bridal collection. With that being said, we are excited to show our brides some of our new crepe gowns and see how they go over with Milwaukee brides! 

Long Sleeves

Brides have asked - finally, designers have answered! Bridal gowns with long sleeves were a trend that designers and consumers have been slightly unsure about in the past. Now, we're happy to announce that designers have embraced the trend head on, creating beautiful, long-sleeved gowns that are more modern than they are modest. 

While Kate Middleton made wearing long sleeves look easy, almost all of our brides who walk in to our boutique wanting a long sleeved bridal gown end up walking out wanting something completely different. With exquisite designs that balance out the excess fabric on the arms, 2016's long-sleeved gowns are a style that all brides can embrace

Flowers Everywhere

From flower crowns to floral bridesmaids dresses (and everything in between), brides who aren't afraid of floral patterns will be in luck in 2016. This trend can be styled in so many different ways - boho brides will love a soft crown of greenery, while more traditional brides will find prints for their bridesmaids that match compliment their bouquets. 

Flowers have always been a staple in the bridal world, but now we are seeing more ways than ever to incorporate them into your wedding fashion. We can't wait to meet bridal parties that a bold enough to wear flower prints on the big day!

Questions on how to style these trends? 
We've got you covered!
