Frequently Asked Questions
Could you please tell me more about the design consultations?
Our consultations are informal and relaxed. You will be welcomed to our beautiful Richmond boutique where you will have the opportunity to chat to Angelina and discuss any ideas you may have about your dress.
The whole process is lots of fun and very creative and once Angelina understands your style, she will lead you through the process of trying on the best shapes for you and making adaptations where necessary to create a look that’s perfect and unique.
Can Angelina design a dress specifically for me?
Angelina is always happy to meet with brides, discuss their own ideas and can certainly create a dress that is not only perfect for your figure but also reflects your personality so that it’s completely individual and unique to you.
How many fittings will I need for my wedding dress?
We usually allow for up to four fittings for each of our Couture wedding dresses, each lasting between 45 minutes to one hour.
What is can I expect from the fittings?
The fittings take you carefully from the very early stages where structure and fit are all important and where you can see the fabric pieced together in your chosen design.
It’s a very special and gradual process of seeing the dress evolve from concept to completion, making sure you’re happy with each stage before moving on to the next.
Can amendments be made to one of your designs?
Yes, often our clients choose to have Angelina design a dress which combines features from several of our couture dresses, creating a bespoke and uniquely individual dress for your wedding.
Do you ever have a Sample Sale?
We have a Sample Sale page on our website where a few of our dresses are significantly reduced. We can carry out any alterations in house to ensure the dress fits to perfection.
Where can I buy your wedding dresses?
Our complete collection is available from our beautiful Richmond boutique, easily accessible by tube (district line), train or overground.
Do you have any Mother of the Bride outfits in your Richmond shop?
We have a stunning collection of elegant occasion and evening wear, some of which can be viewed on our website. This is just a taster of what we can create and Angelina works very closely with clients to design beautifully fitted and very memorable outfits.
Are you happy for me to have one of your dresses in a different and bright colour?
Many of our brides have chosen to have one of our designs created in a bold statement colour, expressing their individuality and creativity. Angelina’s dresses lend themselves well to colour and we have many in the collection which are not ivory.
Can the dress be altered so I can wear it again after the wedding?
Yes, definitely. Many of Angelina’s designs work really well as evening or cocktail dresses with just a few minor alterations.
