FAQ's

DO I NEED TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT TO VISIT CIARA BRIDAL?

We recommend an appointment to ensure each bride gets the individual attention she deserves. However, we encourage brides to come in and browse our collection, accessories and headwear. If you would like to make an appointment you can call to contact 01-6711546 or email info@ciara-bridal.com.

CAN I COME WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT TO HAVE A LOOK?

We are always happy to help and you are more than welcome to visit without an appointment to just browse. However we cannot always accommodate, if we have an appointment at the same time then we must give priority to this. So it’s best to give us a call first to arrange a time to have a look at the dresses or accessories. Many of our dresses are also on our website.

HOW LONG TO BRIDAL APPOINTMENTS USUALLY LAST?

Appointments are usually 1 Hour however, if you feel you need more time we will always do our best to accommodate you. During peak times appointment times may vary.

IS THERE A CHARGE FOR BRIDAL APPOINTMENTS?

No, we do not charge for bridal appointments.

ANY TIPS FOR MY BRIDAL APPOINTMENT.

Please don’t wear too much make up or fake tan. We would like to protect the sample dresses, but it’s best for you to see what works with your natural colouring too. We recommend wearing good quality underwear and bringing a strapless or multiway bra with you. If you have already decided on any accessories, please bring those along too.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I PURCHASE MY WEDDING DRESS?

In our opinion it is never too early, it can be too late though! A typical order time is usually 6-8 Months. Bridal Gowns usually arrive 4-6 weeks before the wedding date, this leaves time to complete the fittings and final alterations.

ARE ALL THE WEDDING DRESSES ON THE WEBSITE?

We aim to keep as much of our collection as possible on the website however, it is not always possible for us to feature our entire range. If there is a style you would like to enquire about please contact us as we may have it to view.

DO YOU ALLOW PHOTOGRAPHS DURING AN APPOINTMENT?

Unfortunately we can’t allow photos in the appointment. We have this policy for a number of reasons. Most of our designers don’t allow photos. Another reason is that the dresses aren't made to measure yet so, an image of a dress that doesn’t fit you is never a good idea.

I FOUND MY DREAM DRESS.. NOW WHAT?

Congratulations! To order one of our bridal gowns you will need to have your measurements taken by one of our bridal consultants. You will also need to pay a deposit on your bridal gown, this will usually be between 30-50% of the price of the gown. The balance is generally split between the first fitting and collection of the gown.
