How do I book/change an appointment?
For information about booking or changing appointments, check out our appointments page here.
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. If you're getting married in a shorter timescale, we can also help as all of our dresses are made in London.
How long will my appointment(s) be?
Your appointments will be with Sabina or one of our trained styliststhat 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?
We can accommodate a bride and up to three guests per in-person appointment.
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 made-to-order 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.
What size will I be?
When you have chosen your dress either during an at-home appointment or an in-person appointment, we will take detailed measurements to ensure we choose the best size for you. However, if you are buying online, here is our size chart for reference.
