Do I need an appointment?
We recommend making an appointment, but walk-ins are welcome. Keep in mind, there may be a bit of a wait, especially on weekends, if you don’t have an appointment. On Saturdays, we do require appointments for bridesmaids, as it gets very congested with too many groups looking at once. Bridal and bridesmaids appointments are scheduled separately. We are closed Sundays.
How can I book my appointment?
You can either call us at (303) 980-1400 or click here to schedule a time to come in online.
How long will by appointment be?
Appointments are 90 minutes long. Walk-in consultations are 60 minutes long.
How many gowns can I try on during my consultation?
We like to start with 4-6 gowns that you are interested in. You are welcome to try on more as time allows.
What size are your sample gowns?
Most of our samples are bridal sizes 10 and 12. We can use clips and panels to allow you to see how the dress will fit when it’s in your size. We also carry a few in size 16 and around 25 plus sized gowns from 18 to 26W.
How many people can I bring with me?
Our seating areas accommodate 2 guests. If you are bringing more, just let us know when you make your appointment, and we can do our best to make arrangements.
Can I bring champagne or treats?
Please call ahead if you are planning on bringing food or drinks to celebrate your gown purchase so we can make arrangements. We do ask to keep any treats at your table when browsing or in a dress.
What should I wear to my consultation?
Since you’ll be changing in the dressing room with a consultant, choose your undergarments with that in mind. We suggest wearing full-coverage underwear or boy shorts, since you will be helped in and out of dresses. Underwear is required to try on our sample gowns. You can bring your own strapless bra, or we can provide one for you.
When should I shop for my gown?
We generally recommend you shop for your gown 9-12 months before your wedding date, to allow ample time for shipping and alterations.
Can I get my measurements done at d’Anelli without ordering a dress or renting a tuxedo?
We are happy to provide courtesy measurements on weekdays, for a $15 courtesy charge if you do not want to try on any dresses, or $25 for measurements with try ons. We also will measure for a tuxedo rental elsewhere. The fee is $15. Unfortunately we cannot provide courtesy measurements on Saturdays or Sundays, and the courtesy charge must be paid in cash.
I need my gown in 3 months! Can you help?
Yes! There are a few options available to you.
- You can purchase a gown off the rack and have it altered to fit.
- Many designers allow for rush orders. Keep in mind that rush orders incur extra costs.
- A few designers are now keeping some dresses in stock, depending on the style and size needed. This option can only take a couple weeks for shipping.
Where I can I get alterations?
d’Anelli Bridal is proud to work with several seamstresses available for alterations at A&E Alterations next door. For more information about their alterations services, see our Alterations page or visit www.aealterations.com.
What is a bustle?
Adding a bustle to your gown allows you to artfully tuck up the train during your reception. There are different styles of bustles. Your seamstress will be happy to show you options, and make a suggestion that will best fit your dress.
