How long in advance should I book my first bridal appointment?
We recommend that you book your first appointment one year in advance of your wedding date to start looking and gettings ideas of cuts and shapes you love.
How long will my appointment(s) be?
Your appointments will be with Sabina OR ONE OF OUR TRAINED STYLISTS that will last one hour. You will discuss the collections and narrow down the options to your favourites. You are able to choose between an in-person appointment, a virtual appointment, or an at-home trial.
How many guests am I allowed to bring to my appointment?
Due to the recent COVID-19 guidelines, we can accommodate a bride and up to two guests per in-person appointment. Please contact us if you have any questions about our COVID-19 protocols at Sabina Motasem.
What do I need to bring to my appointment?
We suggest to bring a strapless bra and to wear nude underwear to your in-person appointment. For sanitary reasons, we will not allow try-ons without underwear. If possible, have photos of dress styles you are drawn to and photos of your venue so we can better understand the theme of your wedding and personal style.
How long does it take to have my dress made or delivered?
Although our dresses are now all ready-to-wear styles and can be delivered to you within four weeks, this does not allow any time for alterations. As we do not do bespoke or alterations at Sabina Motasem, keep this in mind if you do need to have alterations done. Alterations can be as simple as fixing a hem to completely changing the structure of a garment, so please check with your chosen alteration house for their estimated times.

Usually, a bride-to-be will have anywhere from one to multiple alteration fittings leading up to the wedding. Most of our brides live outside the London area and even internationally, so we recommend brides find an alteration house around each bride's own area for ease. Check with them specifically to see their lead times and estimated number of fittings.
We are more than happy to recommend a few places in the London-area should you require any alteration services.
