Making Your Wedding Day about You – Learn about the Experience We Provide

Your wedding day is all about you! And when it comes to trying on wedding dresses, we try to make this day about you, too. Here at Brides-2-Be, we advise booking an appointment as far in advance as possible to avoid any disappointment – especially if you have a specific date and time in mind. However, as we can cater to appointments at short notice, it’s always worth giving us a call to see if we can fit you in last minute! Please note that we do recommend calling at least 2-3 weeks in advance for your appointment.

Scheduling a Day for Trying on Dresses

Finding your dream dress can easily be achieved at Brides-2-Be! When you want to book an appointment for trying on dresses, simply get in touch with us via phone or email. To make a booking, we must be provided with your:

  • Full Name
  • Mobile Number
  • Wedding Date
  • Approximate Dress Size
  • Preferred Dates and Times (Please Give 2 or 3 Options)

If you have any other information you would like to share, then please let us know. This may include:

  • Your Preferred Style of Dress
  • Your Budget
  • Any Special Requirements

All of this information will help us to make sure that you have the most enjoyable experience and provide a service that’s built on your needs. Based on the details you supply us with, we can check our availability and offer you a suitable bridal suite.

Our Beautiful Bridal Suites

Brides-2-B has two bridal suites, providing you with plenty of room to try on your dresses. Our suites include:

  • The Hepburn Suite (Housing Dress Samples Size 8 - 10/12)
  • The Loren Suite (Housing Dress Samples Size 12/14 - 24+)

Tips and Information to Consider Before Your Fitting

Trying on wedding dresses can be an exciting yet daunting experience. Here’s some advice from our friendly and polite professionals!

  • To avoid your appointment being cut short, arrive in plenty of time.
  • Wear little or no makeup.
  • You can take photographs while trying on our dresses, so bring a camera!
  • Bring as much information or as many pictures as you like. It will help us to find your perfect dress.
  • Feel free to wear leggings or tights during the appointment if you’d feel more comfortable doing so.
  • Bring a pair of shoes with a heel height you feel comfortable wearing.
  • Two guests can come and join you in the bridal suite. Though you can also come and visit us on your own if you wish. We’ll always cater to what you prefer.
  • As there are space restrictions in the bridal suites, buggies/prams would have to be left in the reception area.
  • Food and drink is not to be consumed on the premises.

What to Expect During Your Appointment with Us

During your Brides-2-B appointment:

  • A friendly and trained bridal consultant will welcome you when you walk through our doors! You’ll then be escorted to your allocated bridal suite.
  • Your personal consultant will sit down with you to talk about your requirements. Based on your needs, budget, and style preferences, they will explain the variety of collections that are available.
  • If you’re unsure of the kind of dress you’re after, your personal consultant will guide you through every step of the way and help you to decide.
  • To make things as easy as possible, your personal consultant will help you in and out of your dresses. If you feel uncomfortable undressing in front of us, we’d recommend that you wear either a pair of leggings or tights so that you can keep these on.
  • Spotting a makeup stain on what could potentially be your dream dress may put you off it. This is why we politely ask that you wear little, or preferably no makeup, for your fitting. A disposable, breathable face mask will be provided if needed.
  • Your first appointment with us will last around 60 minutes. You’ll have the chance to try on as many dresses as you wish during this time.
  • If you’ve brought a camera along with you, we’ll be more than happy to take photographs of you in the dress.
  • If you’re one of the lucky ones who finds their dream dress during their first appointment, you’ll be able to place your order with us straight away.
  • We can make a record of your favourite dresses should you wish to come back and view them again at a later date.
