Many brides can find the thought of finding their wedding dress stressful and daunting. It is a dress that some girls dream about from being small. We understand that it can seem a daunting task but here at Victoria Robson Bridal we aim to make buying your dress as seamless as possible. The best advice we can give is to be open minded and not be afraid to ask questions. We are here to help and guide you in finding your dream dress. We have put together a few frequently asked questions that may help you begin this journey. If you have further questions please don’t hesitate to give us a call, we will be more than happy to help.
We recommend starting to look for your dress about 12 months before your wedding. This gives you plenty of time to find your dream gown without any pressure as well as allowing time for delivery and any alterations and fittings you may need. However, if you have a shorter time scale, we can still help you!
Buying your wedding dress is a truly special experience and we understand that brides want to share this with close friends and family. We can comfortably accommodate three guests and feel this is a perfect amount to keep your experience intimate. But, if you would like to bring more people, don’t hesitate to ask.
All we need is you. We have everything you need for your appointment, but we do recommend to wear comfortable (preferably nude) underwear.
Our sample gowns are between a UK 6 and a UK 20. Please do bear in mind we only have each dress in one size. Please don’t worry about sizes as a size 18 bride could still try on a size 14 gown and have an idea of the final look. Equally a size 8 bride can be pinned into a UK 14 gown to see the end look.
Generally our main collection gowns range from £1000 to £3500, however there may be some small variations to this range, both above and below as new collections arrive in the shop.
We have several seamstresses we can recommend. Once your dress has arrived we can discuss the options for alterations. The cost of your alterations are NOT included in the price of your gown.
It all depends on the designer. Typically wedding gowns take around 6 – 9 months to be delivered. Don’t panic if that doesn’t give you enough time as we can always place rush orders on gowns.
