Frequently Asked Questions
When should I start looking for my dress?
We recommend you start looking 10-12 months before your wedding day as this means you will view the most current dress collection available for the date of your wedding. Don’t worry if you have a shorter time frame, we can accommodate this by speaking to suppliers about what stock they have or offer you an off-the-rack dress at a discount price, but unfortunately this will leave your choice more limited.
What sizes are your dresses to try on?
Throughout our bridal and bridesmaid ranges our sizes are mainly size 12, 14 & 16. However, we do have smaller sizes and sizes going up to 24 to accommodate all of our customers, so don’t be afraid to get in touch to discuss your requirements beforehand. We don’t use clamps at Elody Bride when fitting a dress on customers as we feel it doesn’t always give you an honest representation of how you will look on the day and therefore have chosen to use pins to help customers envisage how it will look.
What price range are your dresses?
Our bridal dresses are priced between £800 – £3500 and bridesmaid range from £180 – £750. We try and cater for everyone so don’t be afraid to discuss your budget with us at the beginning of your appointment to avoid any disappointment. If you are on a budget, keep an eye on our sale section and our social media pages for details of our sample sales.
What do I need to bring for my appointment?
We advise wearing nude coloured underwear for your appointment. We do have a selection of shoes but please bring your own if you have a specific height you want to wear. This helps you visualise better and it might be a lot more comfortable for you.
Can I wear makeup & fake tan to my appointment?
We invest heavily in our stock in order to give our customers the best selection we can offer to try on. Therefore we recommend you wear light make-up and tan that has been washed off.
How much of a deposit do I need to put down?
When you have chosen your perfect dress, we require half of the full amount to place your order. Please ask us about payment plans we offer.
Do I have to collect me dress when it is in stock?
The benefits of our in-house alteration service are that your special dress will not have to leave the building so will be kept nice and safe. You wont have to worry about searching elsewhere for a dressmaker and transporting the precious cargo and the dress will be altered for you to visit when you wish. We will hold on to your dress and keep it safely tucked away in our stock room until a few days before your wedding. Panic o
