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 instore 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 time frames may not be achievable for your event. Therefore, we also have the option across our made to order collections to reduce the production time frame on a selection of bridal gowns. Please kindly note this is not a guarantee for all dresses and each dress will need to be confirmed by our production team. The rush service does incur a fee which your stylist will be able to confirm.
Will I need alterations?
Upon confirming your chosen dress, you will be measured by your stylist and your dress will be ordered to the closest standard UK size between UK6-24.
Alterations will be required to achieve the perfect fit or to make any small adjustments you may require such as length.
All alterations are carried out by a skilled seamstress and the cost of this is an addition to your dress. Average costs are between £150-£350, with the maximum charge being £350.
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 a meeting at our flagship head office and design studio where you and Alice will sit down and discuss what you’re looking for (maybe with a Somerset cocktail or two!), the process can take between 6 to 9 months.
After the consultation you will be provided with the sketch of your dress and then begin choosing from a range of bespoke Bridal fabric swatches. Our bespoke dresses are made to measure, and prices start from £10,000.00. To proceed with the appointment with Alice we require a non-refundable £2,500.00 deposit. The deposit will go towards the cost of the bespoke dress should you decide to go ahead with your custom design.
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 were skin-coloured underwear. If possible, a shoe with a similar height that you may wear on your wedding day to give you an idea of how the dress will sit. We do have some shoes in store if you aren’t able to bring any with you. Please avoid wearing any heavy makeup or tanning products.
