What should I expect during my appointment?

Your positive experience at Betty Bridal Atelier is of the utmost importance. We want to ensure you do not feel rushed so all of our appointments are allotted 1.5 - 2 hours. We start each appointment by getting to know you and your event details- this is so important to us! We will then discuss your ideal wedding dress, walk through our showroom, and pick out a few styles together. Your consultant will then take all of this into consideration while picking a few additional dresses from our stock assortment. We suggest that you come in with an open mind, because you never know until you start trying on! 

How many people should I bring to my appointment?

We’ve got lots of space, including private suites for each of our brides, so we can accommodate a handful! Just let us know how many people are in your party while booking your appointment with us so we can ensure we have you in the correct suite. However, we have been doing this a long time, and we’ve noticed that brides sometimes get confused if there are too many opinions.  So we do think that a smaller party is better for the bride.

What should I bring to my appointment?

Just you and your posse! We have shoes and undergarments here so no need to worry! Having said that, if you have specific accessories already decided on before your appointment, please bring them so we can ensure a perfect match.

What is your price range?

We start at $4,000 and go up to about $20,000. Our average price point is around $7,000. It’s helpful if you set your budget and share it with us before your appointment. It will help us better prep for your appointment, so we can help you find the perfect dress that fits in your budget!

Can we take pictures?  

Sure! We really do not mind, but just a few words of advice - the pictures never compare to how you actually feel in the dress. If you have found one you really love, we encourage you to remember how you feel in that moment, instead of looking back at the pictures and worrying about a crease or a wrinkle - keep in mind, these are samples that do not fit you perfectly, and that crease or wrinkle will not be there once the gown is in your size and tailored to you. Also, most pictures are taken on cellphones, which is not a professional lense. All said and done, the pictures should be taken as a reference, instead of a deciding factor. We do hope you’ll take our advice! :)

Do you offer in house alterations?

Yes! Our lovely seamstress, Jessica, will be so happy to work with you. She is extremely talented with over 20 years of experience. All alterations will take place at Betty Bridal, as we want to ensure a seamless experience for you! 2-3 fitting is all it takes, and you’ll be absolute perfection on your special day!

What's next after I find “the one” at Betty Bridal?

Oh ya! We are so so happy for you and we are so glad you are a Betty Bride! So, the next steps include: taking measurements (all of our dresses are special ordered from each of our amazing designers), and based on measurements, we will determine the correct size. We will discuss our chosen size with you to ensure you agree. We take a 50% deposit, and then we submit the order to the designer.  We will then determine when we should expect your dress to arrive. Once we have this information, we can start talking about your first fitting.  How exciting!

What else should I be prepared for?

Be prepared to have some fun with the Betty girls!!!
