First Appointment -Your first appointment will generally run about an hour and fifteen minutes during the week and an hour on weekends. Of course, if you need more time, we’ll make sure you get it. If you like, bring a few key family members or friends who can help you make your decision or simply share in the excitement. You might also want to bring some photos of dresses you like from bridal magazines and websites. No need to bring shoes or lingerie—we have everything you’ll need to try on dresses.
Price Range – Our wedding dresses range from $3,000 to $12,000. Our brides typically spend between $3,500 and $7,000, just on the dresses alone. Lead Time Our dresses typically take from 14 to 18 weeks from order to delivery, but we’re happy to work with you if you have less time.
Fittings – Your first fitting is generally about 8 weeks before your wedding day. You’ll want to have the shoes and lingerie with you that you plan to wear on your wedding day. One or two additional fittings within 2 to 4 weeks of your wedding will ensure the perfect fit. After your final fitting, we’ll schedule your pick-up or delivery date.
Special Services – We offer a number of special services. And if there’s anything you need, just let us know, and we’ll do everything possible to accommodate you. Wedding in 3 weeks? Not to worry! (We had one client whose wedding was in 3 days!) We have plenty of beautiful dresses you can buy off the rack, and we’ve been told by our clients that our samples are in the absolute best condition. We can also work with some of our designers to get you a dress they have in stock.
Couture-to-Go – When your plans don’t permit much lead time but you still want a custom-made dress, turn to Wedding Atelier for a custom wedding dress in 10 weeks or less.
International Service – For the international bride who can’t find what she’s looking for locally, we offer fast, flexible, trustworthy long-distance service. You select your preferred shipping method and handle local customs. We take care of the rest.
