How long do orders take? How long would you recommend that place my order ahead of my wedding day?

We believe that the perfect timescale is for us to be provided with measurements for your order no later than 12 weeks ahead of your wedding day. We advise orders with correct measurements can be provide up to around 5 months before the big day but no more than 6 months ahead of your wedding for risk of measurement fluctuation. Providing measurements with upwards of 12 weeks to go will mean that your dresses will be with you ready and perfect with at least 4 weeks spare before you walk down the aisle. This information is subject to change depending on our production line, but we will do our utmost to keep to our delivery schedules, and this advised timescale also includes a 2 week period for possible alterations which aren't always needed. 

Please see below an ideal time line of events for ordering with Bridesmaid by JB:

How do I book a consultation?

Can I order a dress that is shown on your website in a different colour?

ABSOLUTELY! If you can't already select the colour you would like on the design you would like then please leave us a note to tell us exactly what you'd like, you're in complete control

Is there a fee for consultations?

There is a fee for both consultation types, the fee is for a one to one bespoke service for you and your bridal party with Toni either over Zoom or in the Showroom which is payable upon the booking of your consultation online and will come off the balance of a secured order. It is not compulsory that you have a consultation before you place an order, I am available to chat on Whatsapp/instagram DM with any questions you might have and this is free of charge. However if you would prefer a full bespoke experience where I can help you design your perfect dresses I would recommend scheduling a consultation. If you are unable to attend your 30 minute virtual consultation please provide me with 24 hours notice, you will then be allocated with the next available slot. For physical consultations at the showroom I operate a 72 hour cancellation policy to ensure that I can offer the appointment to my waiting list. There is a charge of £25 for failing to cancel within the cancellation policy.

What sizes do you stock at the showroom for my bridesmaids to try on?

So far with the resources that I have I have been able to produce 3 sample sizes. UK 8/10 , UK 12/14 , UK 16/18 - your bridesmaids can choose the closest size to try and I will be on hand with my clips to clip them in to show how it would look when it is made to measure.

I do have UK20 available to try in certain designs in the showroom, just not all designs at this time

Am I correct in thinking that I can ask to mix and match styles to create a more custom design for my bridesmaids?

We'd love you to! It is always so exciting when we are asked questions like 'can this top be matched with this skirt' and it is almost never a 'no' answer, in fact i don't ever think I have said no because anything is possible and we can design your dresses completely bespoke to yours and your bridesmaids' taste.

What happens if we have received our dresses and they require an alteration?

Alterations are FREE and included in the price of the gown when ordering with me. Each gown is provided with an alterations form, as soon as an alteration is identified, there is no need to email to confirm if we can alter the dress, this will slow down the process as response times on emails may be fairly slow while it is just myself managing them on top of production and consultations, I sincerely apologise for this. We can cater for ANY alteration, even if it means reworking a dress or replacing a feature of the dress, we will always accommodate so fill in the alterations form with as much detail as possible and send the dress back to us at your earliest convenience. The only instance that an alteration is not free is if you require more length or larger measurements than what was provided, there will be a fee as we will need to make a new dress. If we need to confirm anything with you about the alteration once it is received back to the studio we will message you. We aim to have alterations completed within just a day or two.

You can tell us exactly what you want changing and we will accommodate

I know what I would like to order but my wedding is only in 2023, what would you suggest as I would like get organised?

If you are someone who likes to be super organised and wants to plan your bridesmaid dresses as early as possible, then you are very welcome to place an order any time for your chosen design(s) and simply select 'Haven't taken/decided yet' on any of the fields in which you would like to confirm at a later date. If you do place an order through our website then this automatically entitles you to a free e-consultation to further discuss your choices and take advantage of the measuring service at a more suitable date ahead of your special day. You also would't have to worry too much about changing your mind with your chosen design, we can discuss officially together during your consultation until you're completely happy with your final choice(s)

When would you advise booking a physical consultation at the showroom? 

I would advise to visit the Showroom no more than 4 months ahead of your wedding day unless you are happy to provide measurements at a later date closer to the wedding date then you can book a consultation anytime you are ready to potentially place an order, continued help and support will be offered after all consultations if we are not taking the measurements at the point of the appointment. There is a fee for the hour consultation and within this hour you are provided with full access to all the Bridesmaid by JB gowns for your bridesmaids to try, and as many fabric samples as you'd like can be taken away. Toni is on hand to provide a complete design experience to help design EXACTLY what you want and we offer a measuring service for your bridesmaids. So this being said it is very important to consider timings when looking to book your consultations in terms of potential measurement fluctuation.
