Meadowbrooke Bridal Services

Appointments
At Meadowbrooke Bridal we believe that every bride deserves a personal and memorable experience to help prepare for her big day! We ask that you visit us by appointment so that we can give you our undivided attention when helping you find the wedding dress of your dreams.  Please make your appointment with us at least 24 hours in advance. 

Cleaning and Preservation

After the wedding, Meadowbrooke Bridal is here to take care of all your dress cleaning and preserving needs. Simply set up a time to drop your dress off at the boutique and we will take it from there!  Please expect this process to take up to 3 months.

Gown Alterations
Meadowbrooke Bridal does not offer in-house alterations services. We are happy to refer you to an expert seamstress in the area. Any alteration service after the purchase of your gown is a separate process and expense.  We will gladly answer questions to ensure you feel confident with your alterations needs before beginning the process.

Frequently asked questions

What is the normal process for ordering a wedding dress at Meadowbrooke Bridal?


Once you choose your wedding dress and we determine your size, we place the order with the designer. On average, most wedding gowns take 4 to 6 months to arrive in our shop. Once your dress arrives, we recommend planning for another 2 to 3 months for alterations.




When should I arrive to my appointment?


There is no need to arrive early for your appointment. In most cases, we have appointments immediately prior and immediately following your appointment and therefore we may not be able to assist you if you arrive outside of your scheduled appointment time.




How long is my appointment?


Each gown appointment at Meadowbrooke Bridal lasts an hour and a half. We also offer thirty minute accessory appointments if you are just searching for finishing touches!




Do I need to bring anything to my appointment?


We suggest you bring the family or friends whose opinions will matter in your dress decision making. We have found that it is important to keep your party small enough so you are not overwhelmed by too many opinions. In addition, a bridal consultant will be in and out of the fitting room to assist you while trying on gowns. We suggest you wear nude undergarments and a strapless bra that you will be comfortable in, or even SPANX if you feel it necessary.




Where should I park for my appointment?


There is a gravel parking lot located directly behind the shop that has plenty of parking! The gravel lot is next to Eluvium Brewery and is shared between the downtown shops nearby. Our name is not specifically included on the signage in the parking lot, but our guests are welcome to park in these spots. To find the entrance to the shop after parking, walk back towards Main Street. We are located across Florida Avenue from Well Bred Bakery and one door down from Weaverville Yoga. We are on the second floor of the building, next to Fresh Aire Spa. We have an elevator located within the building for handicap use, but it can only be accessed with advanced notice.




Where is the shop located?


Meadowbrooke Bridal is located just off of Main Street in historic downtown Weaverville, only minutes from downtown Asheville! We encourage our brides and guests to explore historic downtown Weaverville on your visit if time permits. Just steps from the boutique you can find Well Bred Bakery, Elluvium Brewery, Fresh Aire Spa, and many other shops and restaurants. We would be happy to reccomend a particular spot, but really, the whole of Weaverville is lovely!




Can I bring food and drink to my appointment?


We ask that you do not bring in outside food and drink unless organized prior to your appointment. We hope to make your appointment a celebration of your recent engagement and offer complimentary champagne to kick off the occassion!




How do I pay for my dress?


We accept all major credit cards, cash, and checks. We ask that you pay for your gown in full. If you would prefer to split payments, a 60% deposit is required to order your gown. We will keep a credit card on file and the remaining deposit will be due 6 weeks after the initial payment. Any items purchased "off the rack" are required to be paid in full.
