Because we want your experience with us to be just as perfect your gown, here are a couple of pointers for making the most of your experience with us.


Our gowns range from £1100.00 to £5000.00.

Do I need an appointment?

Yes. So that we can give each bride our undivided attention, we are by appointment only, and cannot accommodate walk-ins. Click on the booking page above to schedule your appointment.

How long are appointment times?

We allot two hours for your bridal appointment. We want you to have all the time you need to look through the collection, have a chat about what you might be looking for and try on as many as you want- we find two hours is a perfect amount of time.

When should I order my dress?

Depending on the designer, dresses can take up to six months to produce since they are being made to order. When you factor in shipping and alterations, it could be an eight month total process. We suggest deciding on a dress eight to twelve months prior to your wedding date, so you have time built in for fittings and accessorizing. There are rush options for weddings under six months, but rush fees do apply.

What is a Trunk Show?

A Trunk Show is a special event that only lasts a couple of days, during this time we have the full collection from the designer to view and try on. We carry an edited selection of each designer’s collection, so trunk shows are a great opportunity to try on everything from your favourite designer to find your dream dress!

How should I prepare for my appointment?

Take some time to look through magazines, websites and create a Pinterest board of all the things you like. This will help us get started in the selection process, although your stylist may also have some recommendations that you will love. We recommend bringing undergarments of similar styles that you will wear on your wedding day, including strapless bras and those magic Spanx!

Will I need alterations?

We always order as close to your measurements as possible but most brides do need a little bit or a lot of tweaking to make the dress fit perfectly.

What sizes are your samples?

Our samples are between UK6 and UK16. Each sample only has one size as we don't carry stock of each dress, but even if it doesn't fit we can normally get a really good idea how it would look in your size by pinning/clamping and other tricks! We can also order any dress in any size, so don't worry if the sample doesn't fit perfectly!

Can I bring a large bridal party to my appointment?

Our showroom is a cozy little haven, with limited seating so we recommend limiting your bridal party to three or less. If you do want more than three guests to join you, please get in touch and we will try our best to accommodate.

Can I bring my baby/toddler to my appointment?

Here at Elie Blue Bridal we LOVE babies and children (the owner Elie being auntie to the loveable monster Olivia). We understand it's not always easy to find child care, and for that reason we do welcome babies and young children. However, it is best to bring auntie/grandma/best friend to watch over them so you have fun finding your perfect dress.

If you have any other questions, please do get in touch!
