What to expect and the process

Purchasing the gown you are to wear on your big day is a dramatically important decision. It all starts with a first fitting and in most cases can take up to six months to decide, as gowns take between 3-6 months to arrive once ordered. Wilkins Bridal suggest you start a good year out from your wedding date.

Wilkins Bridal offer relaxing 1-1.5 hour appointments where brides can try on as many gowns as they choose. Brides are more than welcome to return to Wilkins Bridal to retry on gowns as many times as they require to make the all important decisions of what gown they decide to purchase.

Once the choice has been made a 50% deposit is required to place the gown on order with the balance being due on arrival. Once the gown has arrived and been tried on Wilkins Bridal require you to take possession of your gown until the time of adjustments prior to the wedding. Fitting of the bridal gown is left until the latest possible time frame and undertake on site by our very experienced Bridal Couturie, to ensure if a bride changes shape her gown is a look of perfection.
