Here's what to expect when you book an appointment with Bridal Emporium.
Our PERSONAL bridal consultations take between an hour and a half and two hours.
During your consultation you may fit as many dresses as you wish, available in the time.
During the consultation where we discuss your personal style, preferences as well as likes and dislikes, we use our experience and knowledge to suggest options to try on. We recommend dresses that will not only fit your body type and skin tone, but also dresses that you may never have thought of before.
Keep an open mind - our priority is to give you a memorable experience to make the selection of your dream dress one that you will remember with fondness.
There is a consultation fee of R 390.00. Your consultation will be personal, specialized and will offer expertise on all silhouettes, styles and colour palettes.
We recommend booking an appointment sooner rather than later as our appointments tend to fill up quite quickly. We are open on Mondays to Fridays from 08:00 to 16:00 and on Saturdays from 07:00 to 14:00 on an appointment basis only.
The lead time for orders are between 16 to 20 weeks depending on the supplier. We therefore to book your consultation at least 8 -12 months before your wedding date.

We do offer rush orders at an additional cost but this will all be discussed with you in detail if the situation calls for a rush order.
If your wedding date does not allow for the normal ordering lead times do not be concerned. We have specially selected a large variety of stock dresses which are available for immediate purchase if the style and size are complementary to your wishes.
