When do I start searching for my wedding dress?
We recommend to start your research 9 - 12 months before your wedding day. Depending on the designer it could take 4 -6 months to produce your gown. Inclusive shipping and possible adjustments you should order your dress at least 6 - 8 months upfront.
But don’t worry: (almost) everything is possible and most of the designers offer a rush order for a rush fee. Please let us know before, if you don’t have so much time left for clarifying with our designers upfront.
In addition we are working on a second hand segment, meaning you can consign with us. You can take these dresses with you. So perfect for everybody not having so much time until the wedding.
Once a year we will have a sample sale to make space for new gowns. The dresses will be cheaper then, but please have in mind we'll only have each in one size.
Do I need an appointment?
Yes! Visiting us and trying dresses on is just possible with an appointment. Just in that case we can take care that you will have the store just for you alone and have a private fitting. The easiest way to book an appointment is our booking portal or you just send us an email to - we are happy to help you anytime.
If you are just looking for some accessories please write us an email and we'll find a time slot.

What happens during an appointment at anwe bridal?
The appointment takes 90 minutes. We will have enough time to look on all of our fabulous dresses and accessories and to try your choices on. We will help you to choose designs which fit to your style and you personality. If the time is not enough or you would like to sleep a night before taking a decision, you are able to book a second appointment.
For having a great and unforgettable time with us, we will offer you some fresh drinks and champagne. To make you even more comfortable we can play your Spotify playlist.
How many people should I bring to the appointment?
Most important: Bring just the people which knows you and your style the best. Moreover we recommend to bring not more than three people, because too many people and opinions are making your decision even more difficult. Nevertheless: If you would like to bring more people, please let us know before- then we can take care of having enough chairs and drinks.
If you aren't superstitious (like us), your are more than welcome to bring your fiancé with you. You can also come alone, if your prefer that.
Do I have to take care of something else?
The best is to wear seamless and skin colored underwear and a strapless or/and backless bra. Moreover we ask you to wear as less make-up as possible in order to let our white dresses staying white. If you already have found your shoes or accessories you can bringt them with pleasure, for seeing if the length and the total look work out.
What is the price range of the dresses?
Our gowns costs from 1.400 to 4.800 Euro. But most of them are between 2.000 and 3.800 Euro. You have the opportunity to buy some of our samples once a year with our sample sale.
In addition we have some second hand dresses.There will be dresses < 1.500 €. Check our Instagram account from time to time to see our newest second hand pieces.
What sizes are your sample gowns?
Size inclusivity is very important for us. Because of that we have our samples in Sizes 36 to 48. Unfortunately it is from a financial perspective not possible to have all gowns in more sizes in our store. We try to give you a huge selection and we are still working on a better size inclusivity in the wedding industry. For this we are communicating with our designers ongoing and we are more then happy to find brands offering size inclusivity.
If you are insecure about the sizes and the fit, please let us know and send us an e-mail with your request.
It is no problem to try a dress in a different size, because we can steak out the gown, to present you how it could look like.
Where are your gowns from?
Sustainability and slow fashion is very important for us. We always take care of how and where our gowns are produced and we are aware that the fashion industry is a huge part of the the environmentally destructive.
Our designer ares producing their gowns in France, Canada, GB, US and Australia. All gowns are hand made and produced just right after the order in the ateliers of the designer. In addition, our brands BON BRIDÉ and LAUDAE have explicitly committed to sustainable production. For example, fabric remnants from the production of high-end brands are used or designs are made color- or changeable so that you can continue to wear the dress after your wedding.
If you have any questions about the production process, please let us know.
Chosen a dress -and now?
First of all: Congratulations! After you have chosen your dress, we are going to take your measurements and order the gown directly at the designer. Depending on the designer it could take up to 6 months until your dress will be delivered. We give you a notice and make a new appointment for the pickup.
Most dresses have to be fitted on some parts. We can recommend a fabulous dressmaker which makes you dress fits perfectly.
