Georgio's Bridal FAQ's
Do you have questions? We have answers! From making an appointment to altering your gown, learn everything you need to know about shopping for wedding dresses in Waco, Texas at Georgio's Bridal.
Do I need an appointment to visit your store?
YES! Scheduling an appointment is priority when shopping for your wedding gown. Our goal is to help you find your dream dress, and an appointment guarantees that you will have a dressing room and a stylist's undivided attention. Although appointments are REQUIRED, we might be able to accommodate walk in's during the week days (only) if permitted. Call to make your appointment.
How long will my appointment last?
You will have your dressing room, private viewing area and personal bridal consultant for you and your guests for...
First visit: 1.5 hours
Second visit: 1 hour
Third visit: 30 minutes
How many people should I bring to my appointment?
We have seating for up to 6 guests in each bridal area. However, we suggest only bringing one or two of the people closest to you. We’ve found that brides often get overwhelmed if there are too many opinions. We will do our best to accommodate additional guests, but can not guarantee seats for over 6 people.
What do I need to bring to my bridal appointment?
We provide most necessities, but if you have a favorite strapless bra, you’re welcome to bring it. Underwear is a must to maintain sanitary standards. We have all the accessories you will need to complete your look.
What if i'm late to my appointment? Will i still get my allotted time slot?
Unfortunately no. Every Saturday and most weekdays we have back to back appointments, we include a waiting list. We kindly ask you to arrive 10 minutes early for your bridal appointment.
Can I bring children with me to my appointment?
We discourage bringing children. They often do not have the ability to sit quietly for the length of a bridal appointment, which can keep your guests and other bridal parties from enjoying the special moment. If you're unable to find childcare we ask that you also bring a responsible adult to care for them. In order to keep the child safe and accident-free, we ask that they remain seated or in the lap of an adult during the appointment. Children are counted in the number of guest attending the appointment.
What price range are the gowns you offer?
Our gowns range from $1000-$3500. We also have our “pink ribbon” sample sale gowns starting at $500. Be sure to mention this when booking your appointment if you wish to look at the pink ribbon gowns.
What size wedding dress samples do you have in store?
We have samples in a wide variety of sizes in store, from size 4 to size 32. We want to accommodate all brides!
How long do wedding dresses take to come in after they are special ordered?
It takes approximately 4-6 months for a dress to arrive, so please take that into consideration when scheduling your appointment. You also want to allow 2 months for alterations. We recommend beginning the wedding dress shopping process nine months to one year prior to your wedding date. If you plan on having bridal portraits before your wedding, take that into consideration also if you have a shorter engagement, we can almost always accommodate. We invite you to call, so we can talk through some of our various options in more detail.
Are alterations included in the cost of the dress?
Alterations are offered in-house at an additional charge. Most wedding dresses require a hem, bustle and often tailoring through the bust and/or waist to achieve the perfect fit! We will often customize sleeves, straps, necklines and other details! Alteration prices will vary from gown to gown. Your seamstress will discuss the cost at the time of your alteration appointment.
What is the process of ordering my dress?
After you find the one, we require a deposit, which is half the total price of your gown. Once the deposit is made your gown is ordered!
Am I able to take pictures the dresses I like?
We have NO picture policy for privacy purposes and in order to protect our designers, pilot programs and private labels due to copyright. We have a no phone policy in our bridal staging area. We understand you may need to take phone calls, so we ask you step out to the main floor to take or make those calls. After you say “YES” to your dress and contract is signed, you may take a many pictures as you like!
