Frequently Asked Questions, regarding your appointment with The Norfolk Bride
1. How much does your collection cost?
We stock a wide variety of price points to suit different budgets, ranging between £1000-£2500.
2. What samples sizes do you carry?
As true with the majority of Bridal Boutiques we stock range of sample sizes, typically between UK 8-16, therefore Its unlikely that our samples will fit you perfectly. However there a ways we can fit the samples to accommodate sizes outside these ranges.
3. When should I start searching for my dress?
Ideally 12-18 months in advance allowing enough time for the designer lead times, however do not panic if you you have a shorter time frame, we can sometimes help with rush cut orders, or picking an "off the peg" stock sample.
4. What Should I Wear To My Appointment?
Try to wear nude or pale underwear to avoid underwear showing through some of the delicate fabrics, a strapless bra too is ideal. If you have your shoes, or shoes with your ideal heel height bring them along too!
5. When Should I Place My Order With The Norfolk Bride?
As soon as possible! Or if pressed for time 9 months is perfect as this allows for the ordering and alterations process.
6. What Happens About Fittings And Alterations?
Once you have decided on your dress we will take the measurements. We will send these measurements to our UK Designer who will use this information to create your dress customised to those measurements
Once we receive your dress it will need to be altered to fit perfectly. We don't do fittings in house, instead we work with Henrietta Faire, an expert bridal seamstress and dressmaker who we highly recommend. We will work with you and Henrietta to get you booked in if you decide this option, alternately you can use a seamstress of your choice.
*Please be aware, alteration fees are not included in the price of your dress*
