Ferriss Bridal - Home of Curves - "Turning dreams into dresses"
Here at Ferriss Bridal – Home of Curves, our main aim is to make your wedding dress search special and relaxed.
We offer a large range of gowns to suit all shapes and sizes.
We are thrilled that since opening our specialist curvy bridal boutique, we have helped hundreds of brides turn something that they were dreading, into a wonderful experience they will never forget.
Our view is that this time should be a magical experience and not something to be nervous and apprehensive about.
As a “plus size” bride myself (we prefer curvy), I found my search daunting, nerve wracking and hugely deflating.
After visiting a handful of boutiques, I was left feeling disappointed. I then turned to the internet, resulting in numerous and disastrous online orders and returns. With just a week to go before our big day, I settled for something that really wasn’t me, and dreaded putting it on.
We felt compelled to help fellow curvy brides by opening our own specialist curvy boutique, giving others a much more fun, relaxed and enjoyable experience.
Most frequent questions and answers
We recommend that you start your search 12 to 18 months before your wedding day. Most of our wedding dresses are made to order and can generally take 4 – 6 months to arrive in the boutique, (with the long term effects of covid, brexit and conflict in
Ukraine, we are finding that current timescale of 6-8 months is more
realistic) don’t forget that your 1st alteration appointment will generally take place 6 weeks before your wedding.
Yes you would need to book an appointment as we are appointment only.
We lock the door when we are in an appointment so you have the whole boutique to yourself and loved ones.
We do not charge for your bridal appointments between the hours of 9am & 3pm, Sunday to Saturday.
Evening appointments (5pm onwards Monday to Friday only) are subject to a £30 booking fee which is redeemable along with another £30 from us on saying yes to your dress.
We may take a small charge when re-booking, if you failed to give notice of a previous cancelled appointment. This would be redeemable against the purchase of your dress at Ferriss Bridal.
Ferriss Bridal carry sample sizes ranging from 18 to 34, with reorder gowns available in sizes 6-34 and a made to measure service is available.
Our Hinckley boutique unfortunately does not have its own parking, although there are two pay and display car parks within a minutes walk to the shop.
We don’t limit the amount of people you bring with you but we would advise you to bring your closest family and friends only. Sometimes too many opinions can be confusing for the Bride.
Unfortunately we do not allow children into the boutique, we have found that what should be an exciting and relaxed experience can quickly turn very stressful for the bride, as I’m sure you can appreciate we have high value dresses and we would hate for a conversation to have to take place for any repairs to the dresses or display products if they were to become damaged.
We normally allow 2 hours for your appointment, so you can relax and spend longer in each dress.
If you find your dress with us, we require a 50% deposit on saying yes to the dress, with the remaining balance to be paid when your dress arrives into Ferriss Bridal – Home of Curves.
Here at Ferriss Bridal – Home of Curves, our price range starts from approximately £600 to around £3000 plus.
The majority of our dresses are around £1200 to £1500, so a budget in this region will enable a large selection of dresses to choose from.
No! Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. The majority of our dresses have extra boning and in-built cups to give you full a good feel of the dress.
You don’t need your wedding shoes for the appointment, but if you already have your shoes you’re very welcome to bring them with you.
We would respectfully ask you not to put fake tan on for your appointment. We try to keep our dresses in the best condition for all our brides to try on, and have their moment in.
In short, no, we don’t.
As much as we would love to stock our designers full ranges, we would never have the room or the budget!
We choose a selection of our favourites from each of our designers collections.
Please note that designers websites will show stockists of their collections, and do not show stockists of a specific dress.
If you have found us from a designers stockist page, but have a specific dress in mind, please contact us to check if we have that dress in store for you to try.
