Finding your dream wedding dress is very exciting but as with any new experience it can also be a bit confusing
Below you'll find our most frequently asked questions
Do I need to book an appointment to try on wedding dresses?
Yes, it is always advisable to book an appointment to view and try on our wedding gowns. We like our brides, their family & friends to have a wonderful experience & privacy. It is for this reason that we operate on an appointment only basis for bridal. Its really easy to make an appointnemnt via our online booking system, or just give us a call or direct message on social media. We will let you know if its the diary is booked or if its ok for you to just pop in.
How many guests should I bring with me?
Most brides find that it is quite helpful to bring a friend or family member to their bridal appointment, after all, is an important decision & an exciting time. In our experience any more than 4 guests can be a little overwhelming for the bride. However, we understand that some brides would like to bring more guests, & we can make arrangements for this. Just let us know if you plan to bring more quests to your first visit with us when booking.
How long does a wedding dress appointment usually last?
Our standard weekend bridal appointments are typically an hour long for trying on wedding dresses. However, we do have a pre-appointment process which really helps our brides get the most out of their hour.
Do I need to bring anything with me to my appointment?
Can I bring children to my appointment?
We have chldren ourselves and love them dearly. The boutique space is over two floors & we have mannequins with bridal & occcasion on display, its really not an ideal space for children or prams. However, we respect that its sometimes impossible for our brides to arrange an appointment without children & would never say you can't bring them. If this is the case, please contact us so that we can arrange an appoitment for a day time that is quieter & more suitable for you. Please be aware that pushchairs will need to be left downstairs where your appointment has been arranged in our exclusive upstairs bridal suite.
What is you price range?
Our bridal gowns range from £800 to £2500 for pre-ordered gowns that are ordered in store espxecially for you, & £1500 to £3000 for more custom gowns.
What size dresses do you stock?
We try to represent all shapes and sizes within the boutique, & stock from UK 6-24. The Majority of our dresses sit between UK size 10 & 20, & most of our designers size up to UK 30. We are always happy to advise plus size brides.
Is everything on the website available in store?
We work hard to keep our website up to date, and do this ourselves without any fancy tech team. With this in mind, we can sometimes have a very busy week or two where we have just not managed to update our website how we would usually like.
How far in advance should I order my wedding dress?
Most gowns arrive between 6 & 9 months after the order is placed, & we recomend that you also allow 12 weeks for any alterations & for anything that falls out of your control.
Do you offer an alteration service?
We are very fortunate that we are able to offer all our brides the opportunity to have their fittings at the boutique. Our seamstress is independant, but the process and your in-store experience from purchase, through alterations, onto preparation packing & to collection is seamless & perfect.
Do you offer a dry cleaning service?
Yes, we offer a drop & collect sevice to all our brides that have puchased their wedding dress from Romancia. We can arrange for the gown to be brought back to store & we will take it to our preferred dry cleaner.
