The very most important thing to us here at Amelia’s Bridal is you, the BRIDE. From the moment you played weddings as a little girl with your best friend, right up to the moment you walk through our door, you’ve had a vision. We are here to help you make that vision a reality, with plenty of laughs and fizz along the way.
When you arrive in our boutique, you will be welcomed by one of our experienced bridal consultants who love nothing more than getting to know you and what you want for your special day. You will be shown through to your dressing area where we will then talk through any ideas you have already…. But don’t panic if you aren’t sure what you want, we are here to help you realise your dreams even if you don’t quite know yet what they are.
Now it’s time for a browse, you will be left with your bridal party to have a look around at your own pace and choose some gowns to try on, usually brides choose between 4 and 8 but you are welcome to try as many as you would like. We have a generous selection of dresses from sleek and satin to lace boho with everything inbetween.
Once you have selected your favourites, you will be seated with a nice cold glass of fizz or tea’s and coffees whichever you would prefer, this experience is all about you and your closest people and we want you to have the best time choosing the most special dress of your life.
Now it’s time for you to slip into the first dress! Your consultant will usually help you in and out of the dresses but she will always ask if you would like some more privacy. She will put you at ease and make your experience with us a very memorable one. That moment when you step out and show your family the first dress is not to be forgotten.
We stock a variety of high designers that all have a distinct vibe and we value each and every one of them. Our designers are all listed on our webpage for you to browse prior to your appointment.
Dress prices range from around £700 up to £2500 for a brand new order, and we also have a very good range of sale and off the peg dresses available from £400 – £1000.
Your appointment will continue with you trying a variety of dresses and edging closer to your absolute favourite, with your consultant there to guide you through and be on hand to accesorise and advise in any way you need. You may find its dress number 4, or 10, or it may be the very first one that you go back to and you just know.
Once you have chosen your wedding dress we will leave you to celebrate with your entourage and more fizz whilst we begin your paperwork for your order. You will then have your measurements done and complete the finer order specifications. You will then have the opportunity to have your photograpgh taken with your bridal party – a little memento of the day you chose your dress.
Your dress will take around 6 months to arrive in with us. If you need absolutely anything whilst you await its arrival, business owner Kelly and the whole team are here to answer any questions. Your fittings will start 8 weeks before the wedding day itself. You will be looked after by our in house seamstress and Co-owner of the business, Jo – one of the most fun and caring people you will ever meet… her laugh can be heard around the building! Alterations are charged separately from your dress price and we only charge for what you need.
Once your alterations are complete your dress and any accessories will be steamed ready for you to pick up, usually the day before your wedding on your way to your venue!
Then it’s our turn to sit back and wait for your wedding photos – we love receiving your beautiful pictures and finally seeing you on your wedding day in that beautiful dress that you first stepped into and said ‘yes’ to on that very first appointment.
Much love, Jo, Kelly and all the Amelia’s team xxx
