The Online Wedding Dress Store...

We're often asked questions about the Bridaltastic website and why we created it, so we try and keep this page updated with information about who we are, why we created the website and what you can expect from us.

Of course, there may well be further questions you have so get in touch with us if you need any help and assistance.

Why did we call ourselves Bridaltastic?

Bridal - used to in relation to a bride, so bridal grown, bridal bouquet, bridal party and so on. As so, we're pretty sure you knew exactly what we were doing here on Bridaltastic even before you loaded our website.

Tastic - this on its own may not be obvious at first, but it's often used at the end of words to denote an example of something or somebody that has excellence in a specified area. The most common usage is 'fantastic', but it's often appended to other words.

Bridaltastic - a website loved by brides, providing excellent service and beautifully designed bridal gowns and wedding dresses.

Why is Bridaltastic only available online?

Over the years, we've noticed a growing trend of friends, relatives and others who were finding that the cost of weddings to be far more expensive than ever. With everything from wedding venues, wedding catering, wedding photographers, honeymoons and everything else required to make your big day memorable.

We haven't forgotten the wedding dresses, over the years these have become ever more expensive with the average cost of a dress easily exceeding £3000 (US $3700). This has caused the overall cost of most weddings to exceed £25'000 (US $31'000).

We knew there had to be a better way for brides to find the perfect wedding dress that wasn't going to break the bank, but would also make her feel a million dollars and the most beautiful woman at her own wedding. We knew we could do better than all of the current options, so the idea behind Bridaltastic was born...

Where do we source our wedding dresses?

To begin with, we're all about being transparent here at Bridaltastic, so we're not going to tell you that the dresses are hand stitched by elves using the finest threads intertwined with the manes of unicorns.

It'd be a great selling point for our dresses, but sadly we've run out of unicorns and the elves have gone on strike...

The Bridaltastic team is based in the UK, but we're a truly global team with our manufacturing partners and logistics centres based in China. This allows us to keep our costs low whilst also ensuring high quality output from the skilled dressmakers who design and make our range of wedding dresses for us.

Lets be clear, we would love to have our wedding dresses made within the UK or US, but this would make it impossible to offer the low prices we do for our entire range of wedding dresses.

Although many brides to be may worry about buying a wedding dress made in a country like China. The vast majority of western clothes are in fact made in the Far East and other South Asian countries, because they have the skilled workforce capable of working within these industries.

We work with a select number of highly skilled and capable manufacturers who produce beautifully designed wedding dresses at a fraction of the price of those made within the UK or US for instance.

You may find that the majority of wedding dresses available through Bridaltastic look very similar to those available in the wedding dress boutiques that can be found in every town and city, whether you're in the UK, US, Canada, Australia or any other country that celebrates western style weddings.

However, like many other online only retailers, we don't have the large overheads and costs involved with running a successful store. We don't have the costs associated with running a physical store and we're not restricted to selling our wedding dresses within the same town, city or even country.

What if I need my Wedding Dress Altering?

Of course there is every chance that you will need some alterations to make sure the wedding dress fits you perfectly which would be the case if you bought a wedding dress from Bridaltastic, a local wedding boutique or from a wedding dress designer. So it is to be expected that there will be some requirements to alter the dresses to ensure a comfortable fit.

If you ask locally for recommendations or even use the Internet to find a local wedding dress alteration service. You should be able to find somewhere suitable to help you with ensuring one of our Bridaltastic wedding dresses fits you perfectly, ready for your big day.

If you need any assistance with finding a suitable service for this, get in touch and we'll help you to find somewhere, but unfortunately we won't be able to provide you with any recommendations.

What if I'm not happy with my wedding dress?

Of course we hope you're going to fall in love with your wedding and we want you to be 100% happy with it. But we understand it can often be difficult to make purchases for almost anything online when you only see product photographs, so why should you be expected to know you'll love your wedding dress once you receive it?

So, for this reason and unlike many other competitors online wedding dress stores that only offer a misery 7 days to make your mind up! We offer a full 30 day money back guarantee! That's essentially one whole month to get your wedding dress and have the time to try it on in the luxury of your own home.

All we ask is that you check your wedding dress as soon as you receive it to ensure there are no defects or problems with the dress and let us know within 24 hours of any issues so we can help resolve any issues.

Anything else...?

Hopefully we've answered many of your questions about Bridaltastic. We're always reviewing the information here and improving it when we can, so if there is anything else you would like to know.

Please get in touch with us as this evidently helps us to consider how we can improve the information we share with our visitors and customers. We believe in being open and transparent about where we source our wedding dresses and how we operate.

Hopefully this has been a refreshing change to many of the other wedding stores who aren't as open about how their businesses operate.
