I am sure you are very excited about choosing your gown, but some brides can also find the task of finding their perfect gown a little daunting. Here at 'All about Eve' we pride ourselves on our relaxed and friendly approach. Here are a few answers to some of the questions you may find yourself asking. We look forward to welcoming you to our elegant store and to guide you through our gowns to find 'your dress'
Q. Do I need an appointment to try on gowns?
A. It is not always necessary, but on Saturdays in particular, it is more comfortable for our brides to have a little time set aside just for them to try on gowns. But please call in to browse any time. One of our bridal consultants will be very happy to show you our range.
Q. Do you have a big selection?
A. We certainly do. We have over 150 bridal gowns and around 200 bridesmaid dresses. With gowns to suit all budgets and styles.
Q. Can I bring family and friends when I try on gowns?
A. It is only natural that your close family and friends will want to see you in your chosen gown, but from experience, it is easier to make your selection with one or two people with you when you are trying on.
Q. Can I choose my bridesmaids dresses the same day as my bridal gown?
A. You will find it easier to choose your gown first and then make a further appointment to call in and try on your bridesmaid's dresses. But why not view our large selection of bridesmaid's dresses before you bring them into the store.
Q. How much notice do you need to order my gown?
A. Each designer and supplier varies, but most like to have around 24 weeks to make and deliver your gown. However, do not worry if you have less time than this, as our suppliers will do all they can to ensure you get the gown of your choice. We also have many beautiful gowns available straight from the rail in store.
Q. How much deposit do I need to pay?
A. When you have chosen the gown of your dreams, we ask for a 50% deposit. The dress is then ordered and the balance is paid when the gown arrives in store.
Q. What if my dress needs alterations?
A. This is no problem, we have seamstresses who are expert in their field and can do all the alterations you may need. (There is a cost to the alterations in addition to the dress cost. Charges vary according to the amount of work needed, but are very reasonable)
Q. Do you offer a variety of sizes to try on?
A. Yes, we have gowns from size 6 up to size 30. So are able to offer a selection for everyone.
Q. My wedding is only a few weeks away, do you have any gowns in stock?
A. Yes, we have a large selection of gowns available in a range of sizes to buy from stock.
