Your Registration fee will not be refunded if we have to reschedule your appointment due to a child benign attendance.
How long does it take to order a wedding gown?
On Average, wedding gowns take 4 to 8 months to order. However, all of our gowns can be purchased off the rack if your wedding is sooner.
Do we offer alterations?
Most wedding dresses require some alterations to fit perfectly, as your gown is ordered from a size chart and not created to your exact measurements. We do not have an in house seamstress, however we do have a preferred seamstress list that we recommend. These talented ladies specialize in bridal alterations for a perfect fit and add any personal touches if desired. These seamstresses are not employed by Arlet Bridal, but have worked on many bridal gowns. Alterations are not included in the price of your wedding dress.
DO we allow returns or refunds?
We have a NO REFUND, NO EXCHANGE store policy.
WHat should I expect at my first appointment?
Our first priority is to make your experience at Arlet’s as comfortable, stress-free, and inspirational as possible. You will meet one-on-one with a bridal stylist who can help you to navigate the collection, try on dresses, and of course, offer as much advice and guidance as you’d like. Don’t be afraid to say yes at your first appointment. Most brides fall in love with something their first time, and when you know, you know!
WHat should I bring with me?
The most important thing for you to bring is an open mind. It is helpful to bring some pictures of inspiration to guide your stylist to your vision. Bring the people whose opinions matter to you most. Also, there will be a stylist helping you in and out of the dresses, so wear undergarments you will be comfortable in.
We require a credit card on file to hold all bridal appointments. However, there is a $50 no show fee if the appointment is not cancelled or rescheduled with 48 hours notice. Please note that your scheduled wedding dress appointment is not transferable to another type of appointment such as accessories.
