In some cases, alterations may be needed when we order your dress we will order the size closest to your measurements.
Depending on the dress you have chosen, alterations differ from dress to dress and person to person. We do not perform the alterations at the boutique, however we can recommend a seamstress to make the alterations.
We will take your measurements on the day that you order your dress, which will determine the size ordered.
At Bisou Bridal we have 3 types of appointments available.
TAKE A LOOK – You are not ready to buy and want to take a look at our dresses to get some ideas and inspiration. (Approx 30mins)
FIND MY DRESS – You are ready to purchase your dress, try on a few gowns, bring family and friends to the appointment. (Approx 1.5 to 2 hrs)
AND THE BRIDE WORE – Your dress is in stock, fitting of dress, payment of the final balance and collection of the dress. (Approx 30-45 mins)
We recommend you wear comfortable nude/white underwear, if possible, a strapless bra. We also kindly ask for no fake tan or heavy makeup to be worn for the appointment to protect the dresses.
Bring 2/3 of your closest friends or family whose opinions you value the most.
Bring guests who know your true style, that will be supportive and give you their honest opinion. It is great to have feedback but it is your day and your dress so less is best to give you time to choose the perfect dress. Please also be mindful that your dress fitting will take place in our intimate boutique. We can accommodate up to 4 members of your party, if you did want to bring extra people get in contact with us in advance so we can make arrangements.
We recommend once you have a date and the venue is booked, that is a good time to begin your search. As you will have an idea on the style and will be able to envision the overall look of the wedding. Start shopping eight to ten months to ensure you have plenty of time to decide stress free. Dresses from different designers and suppliers can take different amounts of time to come in so the earlier the better.
We take a 50% deposit upon ordering your wedding dress. The remaining balance is due once we receive your dress, this is around 6 to 8 weeks before your wedding day.
