DO I HAVE TO BE A BOHEMIAN BRIDE IN ORDER TO SHOP Neue?
No way! Our style definitely leans more toward that bohemian vibe, but we also offer modern and minimal dresses. If you have your heart set on a super traditional designer gown, we recommend coming to see us for our accessories and headpiece offerings instead!
DO I NEED TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
Yes! If you would like to try on a dress from our selection, an appointment will be required. We are focused on intimate and personal service, therefore we can only acccomodate a small amount of people in our studio at one time. Our appointments may last up to 90 minutes and are reserved for the serious bride ready to purchase a made-to-order gown. We realize that plans may change, but please take your appointment time seriously and please let us know 48 hours in advance if something comes up!
WHEN SHOULD I START WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING?
We recommend you start shopping for wedding dresses 9-12 months ahead of time. You should purchase a gown within 8-9 months ahead of your wedding. our selection of gowns are made to order and you'll want to leave TIME for alterations. this ensures there is plenty of time, as it can take 4-6 months lead time for a designer to cut your gown. Don't stress if you are a last minute bride, we still might be able to work within your time frame.
WHAT SIZE DRESSES ARE AVAILABLE TO TRY ON?
Our dress samples range from size 6-12. Dresses are available to purchase in most sizes up to an 18, depending on the designer. During your fitting, we will take your measurements and order the best size gown for you. please be patient with us as we expand our collection to carry a broader spectrum of sizes in order to accomodate more brides.
WHO SHOULD I BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?
Less is more when it comes to opinions on your wedding dress! For the initial appointment, we recommend limiting your enterouge to a few trusted friends or family members. If you choose to bring more than that, please note that our studio cannot accommodate a large group without advance notice.
CAN I GET ALTERATIONS DONE AT Neue bride?
We do not offer alterations in-house, but can refer you to a trusted seamstress in the area. After you purchase your gown, we will produce it for you in a size based on measurements we take during your appointment. Even with the correct sizing, your gown may need to be altered (hem length, strap length, etc.) to achieve the desired fit.
What is a trunk show exactly?
Trunk shows are an opportunity for us to showcase more of a designers collection or special pieces that we don’t permanently carry in the shop. if you have fallen in love with a specific designer, a trunk show is an incredible time to be able to try on many pieces from their collections. it is possible that we can offer special pricing for that trunk show weekend as well.
