What to expect during my appointment?

From the moment you make your appointment with City Bridal, you experience begins. You shall be greeted in our Atelier and introduced to our stylist who will show you a wide selection of gowns presented by designer from cut, to fit, to fabric, and silhouette. Your experience shall become very emotional from the selection of your gown to the final fitting. City Bridal shall provide you with the most special wedding dress for the most special moment of your life.

 

How much time in advance do I need before ordering my wedding dress?

 
Ideally you should allow from 4 to 9 months before your wedding to order a dress.
 
Are your wedding dresses for purchase or for rental?
 
All of our wedding dresses are for purchase ONLY. They are special order, which means that they are made specifically for you by one of our designers, based on your measurements.
 
Is it OK to bring more than 3 people to my appointment?
 
We suggest you bring your closest friend or family member whose opinion you value and who knows you well and with whom you want to share the experience of buying your wedding dress. From our experience bringing more than 3 other people can take the focus off of you.
 
What are the price-ranges of the wedding dresses at City Bridal?
 
Our special-order gowns start at €3.000, but are more in the average of €4,500 range or higher.
During our sample sales you can purchase our samples for up to 30% off.
 
How do I pay for my wedding dress?
 
Once you decide to place your order, we require a 50% deposit.  As soon as your wedding dress is finished with all of your fittings, we require payment of the remaining 50% balance.
All prices include alteration charges & VAT (19%).
If you’ve requested that we ship your wedding dress out of Athens, your balance must be paid for in full before it can be shipped.
 
When should I expect to receive my wedding dress?
 
Your wedding dress typically arrives 4 to 6 weeks before your wedding date. The dress is delivered to us directly from the designer and we perform a thorough quality control check on each wedding dress. We then call you to schedule your first fitting.
 
When should I order my veil, headpiece and other accessories?
 
Our special order designer veils require 3 to 4 months, so making a decision at the time you order your wedding dress is helpful. However if your first fitting is early enough, you shall have enough time to order a custom veil from City Bridal specially made for you.
 
What happens if I am getting married in less than 4 months, is it too late to get a wedding dress from City Bridal?
 
No, it is not too late, but every second counts! Your options include buying one of our samples off the rack or discussing with your consultant to see which designers can meet your time frame for a RUSH order wedding dress, which includes a rush charge fee.
 
What is a rush charge fee?
 
This is a fee that our designers shall charge you for ordering your wedding dress before their requested delivery times. We shall let you know, if it is possible to place an order and with what additional rush fee.
 
How many fittings will I need?
 
Usually, you shall require 2 to 3 fittings to ensure a perfect fit. After the final fitting, we will press and pack your gown for you to take home or for shipping.
 
When shall I schedule my first fitting?
 
We’ll contact you as soon as your wedding dress has arrived in order to schedule a fitting. Ideally, that will be about 4 to 6 weeks before your wedding day.
 
What should I bring to my first fitting?
 
You should bring the shoes and undergarments you shall wear on your wedding day in order to have your wedding dress altered perfectly to fit your bodice and hemline.
 
What is a trunk show?
 
A trunk show is an event in our Atelier which lasts between 2 to 3 days, where it is your only chance to meet the designer or their representative, and preview their most exciting new wedding dress styles of the season. If you find the dress of your dreams at a trunk show, be prepared to make a decision that day, as those styles will not be in the store once the trunk show is over. Once placing your order at a trunk show, a special surprise shall await you.

Visit our website from time to time to view our latest trunk show events.
