FAQS About Plus Size Wedding Dresses
How do I know if I am a curvy bride?
Lets just make one thing clear. BRIDAL SIZING IS STUPID. There, we said it. Now here is what you need to know. Curves come in all shapes and sizes, and brides can be anywhere from one to three sizes larger in bridal gowns than street clothes. Brides who also have larger busts or hips can sometimes fall into the curvy category without even realizing it. Our salon specifically caters to girls in a bridal size 14+. This means if you are a street size 10 or above, All My Heart Bridal will be a perfect fit!
When should I start shopping?
We get this question a lot when brides inquire about an appointment, and we think this is the best answer is to shop when you’re ready to buy. Brides fall in love with a gown on their first dress shopping experience all the time, and we want to be able to celebrate with you on finding the one! Have other questions about when to start shopping, or myths about the experience? Check out our blog post!
Do I need an appointment?
Scheduling an appointment with AMH Bridal allows us to fully dedicate ourselves to you, ensuring that your experience is everything it should be. We require all brides to schedule appointments prior to coming to the salon. You can do this by calling 816-600-0651, or, visiting our Let's Meet Page by clicking here!
How long will I have with my AMH Stylist during my appointment?
All appointments are scheduled for 90 minutes in length. This gives us time to introduce ourselves, get to know you and your style, and help you begin the dress selection process. If you are interested in scheduling a longer appointment time, or would like more information about our “Sip & Shop,” please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is your pricing, and how much time should I shop in advance?
No matter your budget AMH has the perfect gown for you! Our inventory starts at $800.00, and goes up from there. While we recommend starting the dress shopping journey at least 8 - 10 months in advance of your wedding date, our inventory is available to special order, or, purchase off-the-rack so accommodating quick engagements is no issue at all! We also have our Last Chance Rack which consists of discontinued styles available for an even more discounted rate!
What should I bring to my appointment?
Your bridal appointment will be a fantastic and fun experience for you and your glam squad. Make sure you review our "House Rules" for the most positive experience. We ask you bring an open mind, proper undergarments, (including a strapless bra and shape wear if desired), and any photos or inspiration for the big day. We have partnered with The Girls Professional Fittings, and have a limited selection of shape wear available to borrow.
How many guests can come with me to my appointment?
Our salon provides brides, and their guests, an intimate and personal experience which is why we respectfully ask brides to limit their party size to five guests or less. To ensure everyone in your bridal party, as well as other guests of the salon, have the most positive experience while in our care, children under the age of ten will not be permitted in the salon for Saturday appointments. Please call 816-600-0651 if a child under the age of ten will be accompanying you, and we can schedule accordingly during our weekday hours.
Do you offer in-house alterations?
At this time All My Heart Bridal’s main focus is helping you say “Yes to the dress!” so we do not provide in-house alterations. However, AMH will provide you a list of seamstresses throughout the Kansas City metro area who will be able to help with any alterations your gown may need. We recommend beginning your alterations six-eight weeks prior to your event date.
What is your cancellation policy?
All brides will be required to place a credit card on file at time of booking. Brides who cancel less than 24 hours prior to their scheduled appointment, or, no-show their scheduled appointment time will be charged a $25.00 cancellation fee. For questions please contact us at 816-600-0651.
Am I allowed to bring in outside food or beverages at my appointment?
Unfortunately we do not allow any outside food or beverages during your appointment. This includes coffee, tea, alcoholic beverages, snacks, and any additional items which could come in contact with our gowns and accessories. Water in a sealed container is acceptable. Any other beverages will be placed a the front of the salon for the duration of your appointment.
