HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BEGIN DRESS SHOPPING?
In order to ensure you’re not rushed with your decision-making, we recommend that you begin dress shopping 9-12 months in advance of your wedding date, purchasing 8-10 months in advance of your wedding date. This is the ideal, not the absolute.
DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT?
Yes, our private fittings are by appointment only and are recommended for brides who are on the serious hunt & ready to purchase their made-to-order gown. Please make an appointment by email, email@example.com or call us at

HOW LONG WILL MY APPOINTMENT BE?
Our private fittings are scheduled for one hour (with a buffer built in), but rest assured that if we run over, we will happily schedule another appointment with you to make sure you're taken care of. If you’re not local in Singapore, let us know in advance so that we can accommodate a longer time with you.
WHAT IS THE PRICE RANGE OF YOUR GOWNS?
Our made-to-order gowns range from $3,000 - $8,000.
For Off the rack rental gowns range from $2,800 to $6,000 with the bulk of our gowns being in the $2,800-$3,300 range.

We encourage you to refer to our Collection page in order to best understand the price range of each designer.
WHAT SIZE GOWNS ARE AVAILABLE TO TRY ON AT BLESSES BRIDE?
Our dress samples range from size 6-10, but please note that your custom gown can be ordered up to a size 30, depending on the designer. If your sizing is outside the range mentioned above, we have creative ways of making sure you can experience the look of your desired dress. We have future plans of carrying larger sample sizes to accommodate even more brides.
WHAT IF THERE IS A GOWN THAT I LIKE FROM A DESIGNER THAT YOU CARRY, BUT YOU DON'T CARRY THAT PARTICULAR SAMPLE?
While we can't carry entire collections from each of our designers, we can sometimes have the ability to request particular samples. Please email us if you'd like to inquire about requesting a gown that we don't carry permanently.
WHAT DOES MADE-TO-ORDER MEAN WHEN ORDERING MY GOWN?
Made-to-order means that there is no stock of your gown and the making of the gown begins once you place your order. The most important thing to note is that made-to-order gowns are ordered to the closest numerical dress size or S/M/L/XL sizing (dependent on designer), based on measurements taken at Blessed Bride. The gown is not made to exact measurements (which is referred to as "made-to-measure"). In order to achieve the perfect fit, the bride must seek the assistance of our seamstress or tailor.
DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM GOWNS?
Yes, we do offer custom gown consultations. Depending on the style and designer, slight altercations can be made ie: short sleeves vs. long sleeves, different neckline, etc., but most of our gowns are ordered true to the intention and design of the gown.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN I BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?
As much as we love the idea of a party in our store, we believe that your fitting should be as intimate as possible. We want the focus to stay on you and what style and feeling YOU want to exude on your wedding day. We’ve found that sometimes too many opinions end up overwhelming the bride’s decision, and we don’t wish stressful shopping upon any of our brides. For your sake, we advise keeping your support crew under 3 and for our sake, so that we can comfortably accommodate everyone in our boutique.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING TO MY APPOINTMENT?
Aside from your shining self, we invite you to bring any undergarments (preferably nude!), if applicable.
WHAT IS THE START-TO-FINISH PROCESS OF PURCHASING A DRESS FROM BLESSED BRIDE?
Your initial appointment will include a tailored, one-hour dress up session with our stylists, where you will try on our gown samples. If a made-to-order gown purchase is made, we'll take your measurements and order the closest dress size to be made. Once the gown arrives, you'll come back in for a follow up appointment to pick up your gown and do final inspections. You will then consult with a seamstress to do any final tweaks ie: hem the gown and make sure the gown is fit to perfection. Between Blessed Brides and our seamstress, expect to attend at least 5 fittings from start to finish.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY MADE-TO-ORDER GOWN TO ARRIVE?
Depending on the designer you move forward with, there is a 4-6 month lead time for all made-to-order gowns. We have some very select styles that can be made in less time, so if you're in a time crunch, email us for more info.
Rush orders are available upon request, but keep in mind that fees will apply.
HOW MUCH DO ALTERATIONS TYPICALLY COST?
Our gowns are quite simple to alter, but depending on the severity of your alterations needs, expect costs to range from $250-500 on average. For any major customizations, costs can go upwards of $700-900.
WHAT IS A TRUNK SHOW?
A trunk show is a limited period of time for brides to view additional styles from a particular designer outside of what Blessed Brides has previously curated in store. In some cases, there is special pricing available during the show. These trunk shows are by appointment only and have limited times to view, so please book your appointment as soon as you know you want to be part of this experience.
IS THERE A CANCELLATION POLICY?
Yes, we kindly ask that you give us at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel or re-schedule your fitting. Since we are appointment-only, we thank you in advance for your cooperation, as we take in a very limited amount of brides a day. If you end up ordering an item with us, that fee will go towards your purchase.
- **NOTE: Due to an overwhelming response, as of Aug 1, 2018 we will be charging a $60 fitting fee. Why are we making this change? Because last minute no-shows or cancellations were drastically affecting our business and taking away fitting times from waitlisted brides. We kindly thank you in advance for understanding and for respecting your allotted time. See specifics below:
- This amount is payable in advance by fund transfer or credit card. We will only secure a slot for you after we have received the appointment fee.
- If you cancel 24 hours before, you can get 100% of the fitting fee back. If you reschedule 24 hours before, you can reschedule free of charge.
- If you cancel less than 24 hours before, you can pay 25% extra to reschedule. All cancellations less than 24 hours and all no-shows are non-refundable.
- Please be on time, each appointment is 60 mins, Please inform us if you would be late, however we only be able to serve you within the time left for the slot that you've booked as we usually have back to back appointment.
- If you attend the fitting, this $60 fee can be used towards any rental/purchase made at Blessed Bride and also includes champagne and/or drink offered to you and your group during the time of your fitting.
- By booking an appointment with us, you agree to these terms. No exceptions will be made. Please do not ask for special exceptions.
