What to expect at your appointment

What to expect at your appointmentAs you arrive to your scheduled appointment you will be warmly greeted by one of our bridal consultants. She will introduce you to our boutique, the layout and explain how we work. You will have an initial consultation to discuss your ideas and inspirations, before proceeding to try on the fabulous gowns. She will ask questions to identify where in the shopping process you are, what your big day will entail, and what kind of dress you would like to wear.

You will then be invited to look through our rails to select some gowns. We understand that this part of the process can be overwhelming as with over 100 gowns on our rails it can be hard to see the wood for the trees, but we will be there to guide you through.

Once you are happy with your selection, you will be invited into our luxurious bridal fitting suite, where we will ask you and your guests to settle in and get comfortable and ready for the fashion show. Then your consultant will bring the gowns into the fitting suite and the fun will begin! As you try on each gown she will ask you some more questions so she can really hone in on your preferences. We like to hear what you think about each and every gown so don't be afraid to be vocal! We love to share in the excitement of your big day too so don't be alarmed if we get carried away and make you try on lots of dresses! We will work our way through the various silhouettes, necklines, colours and fabrics until we unearth the magic formula of which shape, fabric and details work the best for your body, your personality and your wedding day!

We like to think of our approach as truly consultative but in a fun and easy way. At the end of your appointment you will have the chance to retry any of your favourite gowns so if you've accumulated a top three or four you can put them all on again and try them out with headpieces and veils to give you an idea of your complete wedding day look!

When you have found your dream wedding dress, that ultimate gown that must be yours for your wedding day just let your consultant know and she can get you measured up and order your dress!

If you love the dress but you aren't quite ready to order there and then, just say so, and we will happily book you in for another appointment for another day so that you can try it on again and perhaps bring someone else along for another opinion.

Once you become a 'Cathedral Gowns Bride', we will keep you up to date on the progress of your order, and you will become a VIB, and be given access to exclusive special offers and exciting instore events.
