- What can I expect at my consultation?
Choosing a wedding gown is a very personal process and our aim is to make sure that all our brides have a memorable experience at Eurobride. Each bride is assigned her own private consultant and fitting room where we will identify your likes, preferences and personal style to find your dream dress. The consultation process is typically an hour and a half long during which time your consultant will take all your requirements into account, as well as lend her professional opinion while trying on wedding gowns.

We understand that weight can fluctuate due to stress. Eurobride has professional seamstresses that can resize your gown as well as a contracted personal trainer who can prescribe personal diets and exercise programs to help you look and feel your best on your special day. These services are available at an additional cost.

Rental gowns are collected 2 days prior to the wedding and need to be returned at the latest 2 days after the wedding. Should you require the dress for longer, pre-approved arrangements should made with the branch manager at an additional cost.

Alterations are excluded from the wedding dress price. Alterations costs vary depending on specific requirements. With regards to any additional haberdashery/detail that has to be added to your dress, Eurobride requests that the Bride supply us with the items at her first alteration fitting to ensure accuracy and complete client satisfaction.
- How long do alterations take and what can be done?
On average alterations take 14 days. This is all dependent on how much work needs to be done on the gown.

Our alterations department is only available between 09:00 am and 17:00 pm on weekdays. We recommend that our brides avail themselves during these hours to best ensure accuracy and client satisfaction.

Your wedding shoes are the most important thing to bring to your first alteration fitting.
