First of all congratulations, you are now invited to become an #OpusBride! And by being an Opus Bride, our team of fabulous bridal consultants will go above and beyond to make sure we fulfil your dreams so you can "Be" beautiful on your wedding day. Below are some hints and tips to keep in mind before beginning your bridal journey….
- Do your homework before coming in have a look through our bridal designers pages on our website. You can pin the ones you love to your Pinterest board and give your consultant a better idea of gowns, sleeves, back details and fabrics that you like and want to try.
- Always make sure you book an appointment as we work by an appointment only basis. This guarantees 2 hours of the best possible service that is one-to-one with one of our bridal consultants. We would recommend only bringing a few people to the first appointment as too many opinions can be confusing for anyone! You can always book a separate appointment to come back and show more of your bridal party when you have said 'Yes to the Opus Dress!'.
- Normally we recommend beginning shopping for your bridal look a year before the big day as gowns take between 6-8 months to arrive in store with another 12 weeks to allow for fittings and alterations. BUT if you don't have that time, fear not! A selection of gowns come on priority order or we do keep a small stock of a selected styles and have an amazing range of sale gowns from previous collections.
- Once you have picked your gown and it has arrived into store, we invite you back in to try it all again, this time closer to your own size. At this appointment, we can finalise accessories like veils, headpieces, belts and what underwear or shoes you are thinking of. Then your gown will be stored in-house with us, throughout the fitting process, until the day before your wedding when your dress will be beautifully steamed and ready to wear on your day.
