Beautiful, Bespoke Wedding Dresses for Surrey Brides-to-Be

Below we’ve looked to answer a few questions that our Surrey clients often ask us about our wedding dresses and bespoke design service. If you have a question that’s not answered on this page, don’t hesitate to give us a call on 07511 079 441.

O’Hanlon Bridal FAQ

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I COME AND DISCUSS MY DRESS?

A good time frame would be between 6 and 8 months, especially during the busy wedding season.

 

DO YOU MAKE WEDDING DRESSES FOR HIRE?

Unfortunately not!

 

HOW MUCH IS A CONSULTATION?

Consultation and fittings at our home studio in Dorking, Surrey are free of charge.

 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE BESPOKE WEDDING DRESSES?

Depending on the complexity of the gown, it would be safe to allow between 4 and 6 weeks to have your dress made.

 

HOW DOES PAYMENT WORK?

On acceptance of the quote, a deposit will be required to secure your order. The balance is due before handover. Cash or EFT payments, no cheques or credit card payments accepted.

 

WHAT ARE YOUR BUSINESS HOURS?

My working hours are flexible. It’s best to call or email and I will do my best to fit in with the client.

 

DO YOU ONLY MAKE WEDDING DRESSES?

I can also make a mother of the bride dress, bridesmaid’s dress, or a dress for anyone else attending the wedding. When we design a mother of the bride dress or similar non-bridal dress, we follow the same meticulous approach as when designing wedding dresses for Surrey brides-to-be.

Small Business Award Winner

 

We’re proud to say that O’Hanlon Bridal has won an award for being an exceptional example of a small business. The award is incredibly flattering, and we’re thankful to all the customers who’ve chosen to wear our wedding dresses down the aisle over the years.

 

The award ceremony was hosted by 567 Cape Talk Radio presenters Aden Thomas and John Maythem, who shared with the audience what an overwhelming response they had received from the public. Over 3,500 nominations were received and reviewed before being narrowed down to a list of the thirty best nominations.

 

Each of these 30 business owners was then interviewed and 5 finalists chosen. A panel of judges from Cape Talk Radio and the sponsors, Nedbank, then came together to interview each of the 5 finalists and from this rigorous process came the overall winner. The key factor that the judges were looking for was outstanding service and commitment to clients.

Motivation Letter

 

Below we’ve featured a favourite testimonial of ours. We hope it’ll fill you with confidence in our abilities and encourage you to get in contact with us.

 

“I had the most wonderful experience at O’Hanlon Bridal last year when planning my wedding. I had been so disappointed when visiting other bridal shops in Surrey due to me not being an average size. I felt so discriminated against, choosing my wedding dress was meant to be the most exciting experience, but it was far from that until I went to O’Hanlon Bridal.

 

The welcome I got was fantastic; they made me feel so important and exactly like a bride should feel when selecting her wedding dress. Not only did O’Hanlon Bridal assist me in choosing a wedding dress, they also sorted all the other aspects of my wedding out for me, for example a photographer, decor, flowers, Surrey venue and so on.

 

I left O’Hanlon Bridal with my dream designer dress at an affordable price. That was another thing I noticed at O’Hanlon Bridal; they’re more than willing to help everyone, whether they have a small or big budget. I had just left the shop after my 1st visit, and within an hour of leaving I had already heard from their suppliers, it was fantastic.

 

So if there is anyone out there that is searching for the most professional bespoke bridal dress maker in Surrey, I highly recommend O’Hanlon Bridal. It is because of them that I had the most wonderful wedding, a dream come true.”
