Let us answer your questions
Now I know that finding the right wedding dress shop can be a tricky endeavour. There is so much choice and you want to make sure you visit the ones that feel right. That make you feel like you are visiting a friend. A friend that gives you awesome clothes. So I thought I would try and answer some of the questions you might have about Woburn Bridal so you can see if we can be that friend.
How much are your wedding dresses?
Like many shops our dresses range in price depending on the Designer and dress design. A guide price is £1,500 to £3,500 for a complete outfit of separates or a wedding dress. The average dress costs around £2,200. We also hold annual Sample Sales that offer dresses that have been discontinued for sale at up to 70% off.
Do I need an appointment?
Yes is the simple answer. At WB we like to offer all our brides a one to one personal service and we can't do that if there are 10 people in the shop at the same time. By booking an appointment we ensure that each bride has the time to relax, drink a cup of tea (or glass of prosecco) and tell us what they want from their wedding dress. How they want to feel and look on their special day. We want you to be able to browse the designer collections at your leisure and try on in our dressing suite in perfect privacy. No sharing mirrors and no other brides.
What sizes are your samples?
Our sample dresses and separates range from size 8-20. Most of our sample are size 12 but can be accommodated to fit both larger and smaller sizes. We can work magic with a few pins!
Who and what should I bring to an appointment?
We want you to have an amazing time with us so please do not worry about what to bring with you. If you own nude underwear then that is a bonus and it would be ideal to wear it to your appointment. But don't worry if you don't. Now the topic of who to bring with your to your bridal appointment is a bit tricky. Whilst it is very tempting to bring all your bridesmaids, Mum, Sister and Mother in Law that is a lot of opinions for you to consider. I would suggest that 2 or 3 close friends or family that know your style and what you are looking to achieve can be a lot easier for you. The other relations can always come to the first fitting.
What is the process for ordering a dress?
All our British Designers take approximately 4 months to create your made to order wedding dress. Ideally we like another two months for our in house seamstress to fit and alter your dress. Therefore a minimum of 6 months to order and fit your wedding dress is best. However all our Designers offer a rush service and can at a stretch create you a dress in 30 days. However there is a fee for such a service.
Do I have to pay a deposit?
Yes. We ask for a non refundable 50% deposit when you place your wedding dress order. This allows us to pay the Designer for your dress. The balance of the dress is then required when your glorious wedding dress arrives. This can be paid in a lump sum or we offer payment plans.
If you have any questions that I have not answers please do get in touch! We always love to hear from you.
