FAQ C o c o's C u r v y G u i d e
What is Curvy all about?
Now Curvy can be curved in so many different sizes and after all size is nothing but a number. We pride in educating all of our brides that curvy does not start from a size 20 but it indeed starts from a size UK 12 in the House of Coco. Our samples start from a size 12 up to a size 42, therefore everything is possible baby doll. Typically bridal starts 1-2 sizes even up to 3 sizes bigger than the high street, but....... we got you girl, our gowns are TRUE to your curves and TRUE to your size. Okay that is enough about size as we know it means zilch.
When should I plan to start shopping for the one?
The number one question we get from 97% of brides when booking an appointment with us. The best answer we give to all brides is to give your self at least 12 months before your wedding date, you will be able to enjoy your experience and not stress about whether your gown will be arriving on time for your fittings. So get booking girl!
What is your Price Range?
No matter your budget House of coco has the perfect gown for you! Our inventory ranges from £1,000.00 - £5,000.00. While we recommend starting the dress shopping journey at least 12 months in advance of your wedding date, our inventory is available to special order, or, purchase off-the-rack so accommodating quick engagements is no issue at all! We have our blow out sale once a year for a bride looking for a designer bargain.
Do I need an Appointment?
We operate on an 'APPOINTMENT ONLY' basis scheduling an appointment allows us to fully dedicate ourselves to you, ensuring that your experience is everything it should be. We require all brides to schedule appointments prior to coming to the salon. You can do this by calling 0121 236 0390 or, booking your appointment via our 'BOOK AN APPOINTMENT' tab
Appointments are 90 minutes long, this allows you to get aquatinted with your stylist and to select your dream gown. If you would like a VIP appointment, we close down the entire boutique for your and your squad. You can request this when booking your appointment.
What should I bring to my Appointment?
First and foremost we ask for you to bring the best squad with you to ensure they help with your decision making, it is the most glam gown you will ever purchase. Another tip is to bring along with you supported undergarments, (including a strapless bra and shape wear if desired), and any photos or inspiration for the big day.
