I only have a few weeks/months until my wedding, can you help me find my dress?
Of course! We stock so many gorgeous sample gowns which can all be taken away on the day. So even if you only have a few weeks, do not panic as you can take your dream dress away with you!
What is a sample dress?
A sample dress is just one that has been tried on in the boutique. It is an ‘off the peg’ dress that we only have one of. Once it’s gone it’s gone. We ensure all dresses are checked over before becoming available.
What sizes are your samples in-store?
We currently stock samples ranging from size 4 – 12 (see our dresses tab where each dress states which size we have available) These can be altered by a seamstress and can usually go up/down by a size or two. (depending on each dress). As our sample collection constantly varies with dresses selling fast, the sizes that we stock will vary over time. Bridal sizes tend to be on the small side so don’t be put off if you have to go up a size or 2 compared to what your would normally wear.
What prices are your dresses?
Most dresses at The Bridal Collection, by Belle are around £500, depending on the dress and designer, we do have some less than this and some just above. All the prices are available to view for each particular dress on our dresses section.
Do I have to have an appointment to try dresses on?
Yes an appointment is necessary for you to come to the boutique. This is always best so we can ensure we have a gorgeous fitting room available for you and your guests.
How many people can I bring with me?
Our fitting room can seat up to a maximum of 2 guests.
What underwear do I need to wear?
We recommend nude seam-free knickers and a nude strapless bra where possible. This just gives you a better feel for what your dress will look like. Don’t worry if not, most of the dresses are structured enough to go bra-less.
How long will my appointment be?
Your appointment will last for around 1 hour 45 mins.
What happens with my fittings?
We have some recommended seamstresses who we use, and we will give you their details when you purchase your dress. You can then book in with them and take your dress to them, at a time convenient to you. The seamstresses are freelance and will require you to pay them once the alterations have been completed.
