Frequently Asked Questions

Do I really need an appointment?

Ella Weiss Wedding Design is here to give you the attention you deserve. While we do not require an appointment, we do encourage you to make one prior to your first visit so that we can give you the best service available. Would you like to set up an appointment today?

How many people can I bring to an appointment?

As many as you want. However, we recommend that you bring only 2 or 3 of your trusted family members and friends. If you plan to bring more than 3 guests, or if you or any of your guests have special needs, please let us know ahead of time so that we can be prepared to accommodate them.

I’ve been a certain size for many years. Why do I need to be measured?

Sizes vary by designer. Especially in bridal fashion, different designers have different measurements assigned to size numbers. Plus, you want to be measured to ensure the perfect fit for your perfect gown.

How soon should I order my dress?

It normally takes 3-5 months to have a couture dress made and we like to leave at least 6 weeks for alterations. You should order your dress 7 months before your wedding date. And don’t forget about shopping time to choose your dream design. Click here for some wedding planning tips to ensure a flawless wedding day.

What should I bring to my fittings?

You should bring the undergarments and shoes you plan on wearing the day of your wedding. This ensures perfect measurements so the dress is tailored exactly for a perfect fit.

What is a trunk show?

A trunk show is an opportunity for you to see the designer’s entire collection, including dresses that are not normally available to try on in the salon. Occasionally, the designer or designer’s representative will attend the trunk show, giving you special attention and the ability to create a one-of-a-kind custom gown. Check out our calendar of events for upcoming shows.
