How do the bridal appointments work?
At Curvy Chic Bridal, we believe the process of choosing your gown should be fun. Our team will assist you in selecting and trying on different styles to create the perfect look for your wedding day as well as express your personal taste. You will be able to select sample gowns ranging from sizes 16-44 (UK).
If the gown you are interested in is not your exact size, you may have to visualise how the dress will look once it is made to your size – try not to dismiss a dress simply because the sample doesn’t fit properly. We will endeavour to make the dress look as close to the finished product as we can with the help of inserts and clamps. Remember to focus on style, fabric, colour and details when making your choice.
What should I bring to my appointment?
We suggest you wear nude, seamless undergarments. Pictures of your favourite Curvy Chic Bridal dresses from our website are welcomed, as well as pictures of any styles you like. For your first visit, keep an open mind to try on styles that your consultant may suggest. With our years of experience helping brides look beautiful, sometimes our suggestion may end up being ‘the one’.
Who should I bring with me to my appointment?
Due to limited space, we allow a maximum of four guests.
Can I bring children with me?
For safety reasons and to maintain an environment of relaxation and tranquility for all brides, no children under the age of 12 are permitted in the salon.
Is the dress I am interested in always at the salon?
No. Not every dress we carry is in the salon. Please let us know when scheduling your appointment if there is a specific dress you are interested in trying on, and we will either try to get it on ‘loan’ from the designer or find a similar shape or style.
What is the price range of the Curvy Chic Bridal’s collection?
Curvy Chic Bridal are aware that quality and beauty are most important to a bride on her special day. So, we have stocked our boutique with gorgeous gowns starting at approximately £599.00 and up to suit most budgets. On average our most popular styles range from £700 – £1600.
How long does it take to make my gown?
All of our gowns are made to order, and generally take between 4-6 months for completion. We recommend ordering your gown at least 8-12 months before your wedding to allow time for shipment and alterations. You are not buying ‘off the rack’ and that is part of what makes a Curvy Chic Bridal gown so special.
How and when do I pay for the gown?
A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to place your order in person. The balance is due before you collect your dress. Please note, we can not store dresses for more than 14 days. You will be required to collect your dress within 14 days of it’s arrival. Given that our gowns are made to order, all sales are final. There are no refunds, exchanges or credits available under any circumstances.
