Frequently Asked Questions
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A WEDDING GOWN?
Our couture gowns take four to five months to receive. You should try to allow four to six weeks for alterations and if you’re having bridal portraits taken, you’ll want to add another two months. We strongly encourage brides to purchase their gowns seven to eight months before their wedding date.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME TO TRY ON WEDDING DRESSES?
We will have sample bustiers and slips for you to borrow. When trying on wedding gowns, you may be undressing while a female stylist is in the room with you, so please wear undergarments.
WHAT SIZE WILL YOUR GOWN SAMPLES BE?
Gown samples will range in sizes 18 – 26, though most will be in sizes 22 and 24.
DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT?
Yes, an appointment is recommended, as it assures you a dedicated stylist and fitting room are available. However, if you happen to stop by, we will try and accommodate your needs. Please call 972-388-5230 for your appointment or book online at www.acurvybride.com.
WHAT IS THE AVERAGE PRICE OF A BRIDAL GOWN?
The gowns at Molly's range from $1,200-$6,000. The average price is about $2,000-$2,500.
MAY I BRING FRIENDS WHEN I TRY ON GOWNS?
Trying on wedding gowns can be intimidating, especially if you have opinionated guests. Very often, we find friends focusing on what they like, not what the bride likes. They often disregard your budget, your wedding location and may not know what your groom prefers. During your initial visit, we suggest that you bring your mom, your sister or a close friend. Let your professional stylist help you select styles that look great on your figure and that fit your sense of style and budget. On your second visit after you have selected a few wedding dresses, then invite your friends to help in the final decision.
WHAT IF I NEED A WEDDING GOWN IN LESS THAN FOUR MONTHS?
Often our designers can accommodate a rush order for an additional fee. Be upfront with your stylist about your timing and she will work with you to find the best solution to have your gown ready in time for your big day. Sometimes, the resolution may be to purchase a sample gown, which would be available immediately.
DO YOU PROVIDE ALTERATIONS?
We provide alterations through our two sister stores, LuLu’s Bridal in Dallas or StarDust Celebrations in Plano. You are not required to use our alterations department; they are available for your convenience and we are known for the expert fit and fashionable bustles our staff creates. Alteration expenses will vary depending upon the work to be done, but you should budget $300-$500 for alterations. To schedule an alterations appointment, please call 972-781-1619 ext. 228.
