HOW DO THE BRIDAL APPOINTMENTS WORK?

At Curvy Chic Bridal, we believe the process of choosing your gown should be a fun, relaxed experience. Our team will use their years of collective experience in helping you to select and try on different styles to create the perfect look for your wedding day, as well as express your personal taste. You can pick from our extensive range of plus-size sample gowns ranging from sizes 16-44 (UK).

If the sample gown you are interested in is not your exact size in the store, 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 might not fit perfectly. 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 without prior permission from a staff member.

WHAT IS THE PRICE RANGE OF CURVY CHIC BRIDAL’S COLLECTION?

Curvy Chic Bridal know 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 £795.00 and up to suit most budgets. On average our most popular styles range from £1000 – £1500. We also have a sale rail with dresses starting from £99 to suit those on a budget or with a. short date.

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 DRESS?

When you have found your dream dress we ask for a 50% non-refundable deposit to secure your order. The remaining balance will be due when you collect your dress.
