Here is some information about our shop. If we have left anything out, we are always happy to help. We reserve the right to amend our terms and conditions at any time without prior notification. Your use of the website constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions and notices.
1Do I need to book an appointment?
Yes, Belladonna Bridal shop is appointment only. We recommend that you make an appointment when you are ready to make a purchase. Look through our collection page, Instagram and Pinterest profile for inspiration first and then call our shop at (091) 755139 or fill out the make an appointment form to book your bridal consultation appointment. Our private fittings are scheduled for 1 hour and 30 minutes to our first-time brides, it is of utmost importance to us that the bride feels comfortable and can take her time to try on different styles of gowns.
2Can I cancel or change my appointment?
Please note: Saturday and Sunday appointments are very popular so we strongly recommend booking your appointment well in advance. Our appointments have an initial €25 consultation fee when booking your appointment with us. If you need to reschedule or postpone your appointment we can refund this fee with up to 48 hours notice. Your appointment will be held in a private room with your own dedicated bridal consultant.
3Do you have any advice for my wedding dress fitting?
Research! Look at our website before your appointment and have a good idea of the designers and styles you like beforehand. It will save you time at your appointment. Please do not wear fake tan as it rubs off of the dresses. Please do not wear excessive make-up. Either wear or bring a multi-way strap bra with you - this will be a saving grace when you try on a few different styles.
4How many people can I bring with me?
It’s always good to get a valued second opinion on your dress from your family and friends. The feedback from other brides is often that the fewer people, the easier you will find it to focus on how you feel. That is why we recommend you bring no more than 2 adults with you. We do ask that you do not bring children to the appointment.
5Can I take photos of the dress?
Sorry, we do not allow photos in Belladonna. There are many reasons for this but most importantly the dress won’t fit you perfectly so an image isn’t a great reminder- focus on how the dress made you feel. You can view images of all our dresses at our Collection page.
6What is your general price range?
We have a wide range of dresses to suit every bride’s budget. Our dresses generally range from €1200-3500 for our reorder dresses and from €500-2000 for our off the rail collection.. We will ask you for your dress budget when you make your first appointment and we will pick the best selection of dresses to suit you and within your price range.
7What happen when I found my dream dress?
Once you have found your dream dress and are sure you want to proceed - you will secure it with a 50% deposit. The remaining 50% is due when your dress arrives in, typically 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding day. If time permits, an instalment/payment plan can be operated- with monthly or weekly payments to suit the bride. We do not offer returns or exchanges once the deposit has been signed.
8How long before my wedding should I order my dress?
When to begin looking for your wedding gown is entirely up to you. Most brides don’t begin the search until a year to nine months before the wedding, but if you’ve got more time, there’s no reason you can’t use it. You should try and order your wedding dress 8 months before your big day to ensure that your dress can be delivered on time. Don’t panic if you’ve left it to go past the 8-month mark, some of our designers will offer a “rush” order service for a fee. We also have some off-the-rack gowns if you are a last-minute bride.
9When are my measurements taken?
We take your measurements on the day that you order your dress. Don’t order a size smaller than you are. If you’re planning on dropping a few pounds before your wedding, your body type isn’t going to completely change. Besides, it’s a lot easier (not to mention less expensive) to take a gown in than to try and make a too-small dress work.
10Do you offer alteration?
No, but we are more than happy to recommend a local seamstress who we have had a fantastic experience with - that would be your decision.
