FAQ'S & PRODUCT CARE
WHY DO I NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
An appointment is needed to ensure a BEGUM BDH consultant is available to assist you in finding a wedding gown that best suits your personal style. Our consultants can also help select bridal accessories and discuss customization options with you.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?
If you plan to wear a specific piece of jewelry or accessory on your wedding day, please bring it with you to ensure it complements the gown you select. You may also want to bring images of wedding gowns you have seen on our website that you wish to try on.
WHO SHOULD I BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?
Due to COVİD-19, we limit the guest list to no more than one more guest whose style opinion you value.
CAN I COMPLETE MY ENTIRE LOOK IN ONE APPOINTMENT?
Yes, we offer veils, sashes, headpieces and capes.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I PURCHASE MY GOWN?
We suggest you order your wedding gown at least six to eight months before your wedding date to avoid rush fees, as all gowns are special-order.
WHAT IF MY WEDDING IS FEWER THAN SIX MONTHS AWAY?
Select BEGUM BDH gowns can be purchased a few months prior to your wedding, but a rush fee may be incurred to guarantee enough time for fittings and delivery.
WHAT IS A SPECIAL-ORDER GOWN?
All of our bridal gowns are special-order, made for you based on the pattern size closest to your measurements and reflecting any changes to the design you have requested.
WHAT ARE THE PRICE RANGES FOR YOUR GOWNS?
New designs are introduced twice a year. The starting price for BEGUM BRIDAL DESIGN HOUSE (BEGUM BDH) Collection is $850 and goes up for $4500. If you prefer a special design by our designer BEGUM SALIHOGLU, the prices starts at $5,500 and allows for more customization options.
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY FIRST FITTING?
We will contact you once your gown is complete to schedule your first fitting, which takes place eight weeks before your wedding day.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY FIRST FITTING?
Please bring the undergarments and shoes you plan to wear on your wedding day to ensure the hemline and bodice are fitted properly.
HOW MANY FITTINGS WILL I NEED?
Two or three fittings are typically required. However, more fittings will be scheduled if necessary. Following your final fitting, we will press and pack your gown to be shipped or taken home.
WHAT IS A TRUNK SHOW?
Trunk shows are events during which a designer’s most recent collection is previewed. They feature the latest styles not yet in stores as well as gowns not offered in stores due to the price or complexity of the design. If you find a wedding gown at a trunk show, be prepared to purchase it before the event ends, as it may no longer be available at the store once the event is over.Click here to view BEGUM BDH trunk Show calender.
