Frequently asked questions
Do I need an appointment?
We recommend booking an appointment just so we can ensure that you have a fully private experience and that we have a fitting room available for you. We like to give you our full undivided attention and if we have another customer in, we are unable to provide this.
How long do appointments take?
We usually advise you to select 3 or 4 dresses which you’d like to try, and then throughout the appointment, we will get a feel of what you are/not liking and we can pull some more out for you! Sometimes the ones we pull out are not what you’d go for but are often the ones brides go for! Have faith in us. Your appointment will last for around 1 hour 15 mins.
Do you charge for appointments?
No, we don't charge for appointments.
When should I start shopping for my wedding dress?
Aim to order your gown no later than 6-7 months prior to your wedding date, in order to avoid rush fees and leave adequate time for production and fittings. It's important to remember: Most bridal gowns are made-to-order.
What sizes do you stock?
We currently stock dresses ranging from size 8 – 28. These can be altered by one of our seamstresses and can usually go up/down by up to 2 sizes. As our sample collection constantly varies, the sizes that we stock will vary over time. Bridal sizes tend to be on the small side so don’t be put off if you have to go up a size.
How many people can I bring to my appointment?
Our fitting room can seat up to 3 guests.
Can I take photos of my chosen dress?
We kindly asked you not to take any photos as we do not allow photography when you are trying on dresses. This is to protect the copyright of the Designer’s work. Also, lighting and bad angles often distort the gown, therefore, giving a false impression.
Do you sell wedding veils?
Our stunning veil collection is truly exquisite. We offer a choice of tiers, trims and tulles. All our veils are cut and embellished by hand. We have a wide range of tulle veils to top off your perfect wedding day look. From dramatic cathedral length veils to dreamy vintage style bouffant cut, you can find your perfect piece from our collection. We are also happy to help you with any bespoke colour and length requirements.
Do you sell wedding jewellery?
Our beautiful headpieces are one of the most popular choices for brides. We have vintage style wedding headbands with antique finish and sparkling Swarovski crystals. Traditional wedding headpieces like tiaras and combs. Ribbon wedding headbands are also available for a soft and feminine look. We also have contemporary tiaras, bridal-hair-vines and headbands for a modern yet elegant look. All our headpieces are carefully handpicked by our expert bridal stylists.
Do you sell bridal shoes?
Do you sell bridesmaid dresses?
At The Sophie Grace Bridal we stock two brands of bridesmaids dresses - Dessy Bridesmaids Dresses and The Eliza and Ethan bridesmaid dresses. Prices start at £195 and go up to £250 for the more detailed dresses. If you're looking to try on a particular dress from any of these brands we recommend you check with us when you book your appointment. We have carefully selected the range of bridesmaids dresses to offer you the most expansive range of colours, styles and prices possible. We recommend ordering with plenty of time before your wedding to ensure there is time for any alterations that may need to be done prior to the wedding. We are confident that we can provide you with the perfect dress; we would love to have you visit our store in Wokingham, Berkshire.
Do you do alterations?
We have professional, qualified seamstresses that work on the premises, ensuring your alterations are hassle-free and that your dress is looked after as it should be. The Seamstresses make jackets, add sleeves, remove sleeves, add straps, reduce trains, insert lace-up backs, add extra detail, you name it, they can do it! We make Cravat & Hanky set too, so you can match up your bridal party with your bridesmaids, just ask the Seamstresses for details. We are pleased to be able to offer our dressmaking service to Brides/Bridesmaids/Mother of the Bride who has purchased their gowns/dresses/outfits from another establishment.
