Temperley Bridal FAQs
What is the price range of your bridal collection?
The bridal collection price point ranges from 2,000 GBP–8,000 GBP with most dresses falling between 3,000 GBP–4,000 GBP. Please note this cost does not include alterations which most dresses will need to achieve a perfect fit.
As part of our bridal collection, we also offer accessories such as veils or headpieces. These range between 200 GBP–1,000 GBP except for very detailed veils at 2,300 GBP.
Any customisation requests will increase the pricing slightly and will need to be discussed with your stylist during your appointment.
How long does it take to get a Temperley Bridal dress?
For our made to order collection, upon placing your order it can take between 3-6 months. This excludes alterations which most bridal dresses will require to get the perfect fit. Kindly note that all our veils and accessories are also made to order.
We also offer an edit of bridal styles which are available to purchase in store immediately, alongside our eveningwear collection which many of our brides also favour. Your stylist will talk you through all options based on your wedding date during your consultation.
Is there a rush order service?
Yes, for some clients we realise that the production times may not be suitable. In order to aid with more urgent requests, we can endeavour to reduce lead times for a rush service fee, subject to the style. Please note that this is not a guarantee, and can only be achieved on select dresses. We encourage you to place Bridal requests as early as possible to ensure the most enjoyable experience for you during the order and appointment schedule.
Will I need alterations?
Upon confirming the chosen dress, you will be measured by a stylist. The dress will then be ordered to your closest standard UK size between UK6-24.
Alterations will often be required to achieve a perfect fit, or to make any preferential adjustments such as length.
All alterations are carried out by a skilled seamstress for an additional fee. Average costs are between 150–350 GBP.
Do you offer bespoke dresses?
Yes, we do. Alice Temperley works directly with brides on bespoke dresses and only takes on a limited number of clients per year. This one-on-one service begins with an in-person meeting at our Somerset flagship and design studio. This process can take between 6 to 9 months. Following the consultation, a sketch of the dress will be provided and bespoke fabric swatches will be reviewed.
All bespoke dresses are made to measure, and prices start from 10,000 GBP. To proceed with an appointment, we require a non-refundable 2,500 GBP deposit. The deposit goes towards the cost of the service and final bespoke dress.
How many guests can I bring to my appointment?
We can accommodate up to 3 guests plus the Bride.
Can I take pictures during my appointment?
Yes. Our stylists are also happy to take pictures for you if you come to an appointment on your own.
What size are your sample gowns?
We hold a range of dresses in different sizes depending on the showroom you visit. Most of the samples are in a UK8 and UK12 with some styles available in UK16. Our team are fully equipped to accommodate different sizes using industry techniques such as pins and panels.
What should I bring to my appointment?
The team suggests you wear skin-coloured underwear. If possible, bring a shoe with a similar height to that which you may wear on your wedding day. We do have some shoes in store if you aren’t able to bring your own. Please avoid wearing any heavy makeup or tanning products.
