On finding your dream gown, we will take your measurements and select your size.
To order your gown with our suppliers on standard delivery (non rush), we require a 50% deposit. The remainder will be due when you “meet your dress”.
Manufacture and delivery times vary from designer to designer. Generally, delivery time will be between 6 – 8 months with rush orders possible when an additional fee is paid. Rush orders are subject to approval.
Your stylist will work with you to ensure that your gown arrives well ahead of wedding day and allowing enough time to have alterations done to achieve the perfect fit; perfect for you and no one else!
Sure! We deliver gowns all over the world. We will be able to provide a quote to post your gown to you after it arrives, wherever you may be.
In nearly all cases alterations will be needed to ensure the perfect fit of your wedding gown. Please kindly note that alterations are not included in the purchase price of your gown as the needs of each bride vary greatly.
Bluebell Bridal offers an exclusive in-house expert alterations service.
Alterations appointments are available from Tuesday – Friday inclusive, but not on Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays or public holidays. It is not possible to give quotes or estimates on the cost of alterations at the time of ordering your gown.
We welcome both brides who have purchased their gown from Bluebell Bridal and those who have purchased from elsewhere. We offer a complimentary alterations consultation with our highly skilled alterations team approximately 8-10 weeks out from your wedding day.
Certainly, you are not obliged to engage our alterations service.
At Bluebell Bridal, we generally start alterations 10 weeks before your wedding date. This ensures that on your big day that perfect fit is achieved to your body shape at that time.
In our efforts to ensure your gown fits perfectly on your wedding day, we kindly ask you to note that you may require up to 4 fittings, and worth noting should you need to consider your schedule.
In addition to your initial one hour consultation, you can expect to have up to 3 or possibly 4 fitting appointments to ensure the perfect fit for your special day.
