Why Bella Brides? Bella Brides offers special attention to each bride, giving them time to find her perfect dress. Brides are not cookie-cutter, so neither should be their experience. You'll feel how special Bella Brides is as soon as you walk through the door!
How do I find Bella Brides? Our store is located at 800 NW Wall St, Ste 201, Bend, OR 97701. The address is on Wall St, but the entrance is on Franklin St, between JC's and Northsoles Footwear.
What brands and styles do you carry? Bella Brides carries wedding dresses by Maggie Sottero, Sottero & Midgley, Morilee and Anaiss. Bridesmaid dresses are by Bill Levkoff and Morilee. Tuxedo rentals are from Jim's Formalwear.
Do I need an appointment to try on dresses? Appointments are not required. However, they are highly recommended to ensure that there is a dressing room available and a bridal consultant to give you the attention you deserve! Without an appointment, we can not guarantee availability to try on dresses that day. Priority is given to those with appointments.
What should I bring to my appointment? Just bring yourself! It is not necessary to bring the shoes or undergarments you will wear on your wedding day. The sample dresses come in a standard length which will be altered by the dress company or in alterations, after the dress arrives.
In addition, we recommend bringing 1-2 close friends whose opinions you trust. Any more than that can be overwhelming. We do not recommend bringing children. It is difficult for even well-behaved children to be patient through the entire appointment. This often causes a lot of stress for the bride and makes choosing the perfect dress very difficult.
How far in advance should I purchase my dress? As early as possible! The dresses that Bella Brides carries are samples. Once you find your perfect dress, we will order you the dress in your size. The dresses generally take about five months to come in, and, you need time for alterations, time to pick out shoes and jewelry, etc.
If you do not have enough time for the five month ship date, you can always order a priority gown or purchase a gown off the rack. The more time you have, the less stressed brides tend to be!
I found the same dress online. Why not purchase it there? Many online companies sell knock-off merchandise. These dresses appear to be the same as the ones you'd find a brick-and-mortar store. However, this is generally not the case. We hear stories all the time where women buy dresses online just to find that they are not as described. The quality, design, and fit are far inferior. It's not worth the risk! Bella Brides has a great selection and a variety of prices, c'mon in!
What sort of specials are offered for Bella Brides Brides? All Brides who purchase their dress from our store, receive 10% off bridesmaid dresses and tuxedo rentals!
What should I do with my dress after the wedding? Why not have it preserved? Ask us about it! The dress will be cleaned, preserved, and guaranteed to stay that way for 100 years! We will send it from the shop and then it will be mailed back to your home.
