Shopping for a wedding dress or bridesmaids gowns is a wonderful experience that most of us will only ever do once! It truly is an extra-special event and an important part of your journey as a bride.
Here at Apple Blossom Time, we have built a reputation for delivering an exceptional wedding dress shopping experience and we'd like to share our expereince with you to help you prepare for your exciting journey as an ABT bride!
Making an appointment
To ensure every bride has our undivided attention and enjoys the ABT experience, we operate an appointment only system. You can book online here or telephone us on 01738 638628. We offer every bride visiting us for the first time, a 1hour 45min appointment.
Your choice of underwear for the appointment is important: nude, cream or white lingerie would always be our recommendation.
Our brides always comment on, and appreciate how perfectly we maintain our sample dresses and so we ask for your co-operation with this: minimal makeup, no rub-off fake tan and no lipstick please. You will find this also helps you stay focused on the dresses themselves.
Your Appointment Experience
Here at ABT our personal values play a big part in how we deliver your experience. We have a genuine passion for what we do, and you will find that this is evident in our choice of collections, the attention to detail we have paid in creating our shop and in the service we offer to each and every bride.
There isn't a minute of your time with us that hasn't been carefully thought out so that you can relax and enjoy saying yes to that perfect bridal gown.
Your Private Consultation.
We have three separate consulting rooms, each one providing privacy for you and your bridal party, and each boasting a comfortable seating area with seperate fitting room. You will have the undivided attention of a bridal consultant throughout your appointment to guide and advise you, answering any questions as well as assisting you into the gowns of your choice.
We advise that you limit your guests to a few people who know you best and who you know will constructively give an opinion. Our experience shows that a large entourage offers up too many opinions that tend to confuse a bride.
Children are welcome at your appointment, however, please be advised that they must be supervised at all times; bridal gowns are very delicate and there are also hidden dangers from steps and pins.
The very best gowns and designers from around the world are available at Apple Blossom Time. We pride ourselves on offering only the highest quality in a wide price range to suit most budgets.
We are the exclusive stockists in Scotland of CHOSEN, Rembo Styling and Marylise.
Ordering Your Gown
When you choose your gown from Apple Blossom Time you will be measured by a trained consultant and your measurements used to order an agreed size. Your contract with us will be completed and you will be required to pay a 50% deposit for your gown, any bridesmaid dresses and accessories purchased.
In the following few days, we will order your gown and send you a confirmation of order via email. Please read your confirmation of order carefully and inform us of any discrepancies or queries within 24 hours of receipt.
As soon as your gown arrives at Apple Blossom Time, we will contact you to arrange for you to come along and try your dress for the first time.
