Where are you located?
We are located in a cute Victorian building in Winnetka (cross streets are Sherman Way and Corbin) - near Los Angeles, California. Our address and suite number will be provided when the appointment is set.
Do I need to make an appointment?
Yes, Adina's Bridal is open by appointment only. I have a small studio space where I take appointments. The studio has racks of dresses, a full-length mirror, veils, accessories, etc. Since Adina's Bridal is not a traditional bridal salon, it is not possible to browse through all of our dresses in studio. So I just ask that you take a look at my website and let me know what dresses (and sizes) you would like to try on, and I will pull them aside and have them ready for your appointment.
How do I make an appointment?
Just send me an e-mail and let me know what dresses and sizes you are interested in trying on. Also, let me know which day(s) and time(s) you are available. I generally take appointments between 1:00 PM - 7:00 PM. I am available most days of the week, but require at least 24 hours notice to set an appointment.
How long do the appointments run for?
Our bridal appointments typically run for one hour.
Our studio is a very relaxed setting and we don't want you to feel rushed or pressured in any way. If there isn't an appointment after yours, it is fine if your appointment runs longer than an hour. Brides enjoy the relaxed feeling of dress shopping at Adina's Bridal and have said that it feels like trying on dresses at a friends house!
Do I need to select my favorite gowns prior to my appointment?
Yes! To ensure we can best prepare for your appointment we do require selecting the dresses you want to try on prior to visiting our studio. If you describe what style you like and what size you usually wear, I am happy to pull out some extra gowns for you to try on. Oftentimes I have some new and unlisted inventory that I bring out for studio appointments. However, the majority of my inventory is listed on my website.
Am I required to purchase my gown on the day?
No! We understand many of our brides aren’t exactly sure what they are looking for and understand it can take time to make your decision. You are not required to purchase on the day, however we recommend that you book your appointment when you are ready and have a good idea of the wedding gown styles you are interested in. It usually helps if you have tried on dresses elsewhere before coming to Adina's Bridal, since our inventory and sizes are limited and change all the time. It helps to have a good idea of what you are looking for to make sure that we have something that can work for you.
What payment methods are accepted?
As we are primarily an online business we only accept payment in full, at time of ordering, via Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Paypal. We also accept cash. However, we do not accept personal checks. Also, we cannot place items on hold, even with a deposit.
What if I need to cancel my appointment?
We get it, life happens! We do kindly ask that you provide 48 hours notice if you need to cancel or re-schedule as we are a small studio and can only see a very limited number of brides in a day.
What do I need to bring?
Your beautiful self, wear nude seamless underwear, minimal to no makeup and no tanning products.
How many guests can I bring?
You’re welcome to bring along a maximum 5 guests as we would like to ensure your experience at the Adina's Bridal is intimate and totally relaxing (plus we don't really have space for more!).
Can I purchase directly from your studio & walk out with my gown?
Yes! Everything we sell is "off the rack". Dresses are sold on a first come first serve basis. We sell on various online platforms, so gowns do sell quickly and we do not place holds on dresses.
Are all sales Final?
Yes! For purchases made in person at our studio, there are no refunds, credits, transfers, or exchanges on any payment or merchandise. ALL merchandise must be taken at time of purchase. Adina's Bridal assumes no responsibility for the condition of your merchandise once it has been taken from the premises.
Any purchase made online has a 3-day return policy to allow you to try on the dress and inspect the condition. Please read about our online return policy here.
