What will happen at my appointment 

 

How long will my appointment last for?

For a first bridal appointment I usually put aside 1 1/2 hours! This is so you can try on as many dresses as you like and really get a feel for styles. I don’t believe brides should be rushed when trying on.

Finding your dress with us on your first visit will be amazing but if you need a little time to think & revisit us then that brilliant too. Subsequent appointments will be shorter.

 

What do I need to bring for an appointment?

Just you! Well and a bridesmaid or family member or 2. If you wish you may bring some heels & a strapless bra but it isn’t essential for a first appointment.

Just remember this is the fun part so don’t get stressed!

When should I shop

 

Every bride is individual and this depends on the wedding date.

Most brides like to get the dress sorted out early so that all other aspects of the wedding can be arranged to suit the style of the dress for e.g. Accessories and flowers and bridesmaids.

 

Made to order

Shop for for your dress 12 months before or earlier. Make. Some of our brides order more than 12-18 months before the wedding because they know they have found the right dress.

When you order a wedding dress it is then made in the size/colour you choose & delivered back to the boutique for alterations/fitting. Please allow approx 6 months for this 

 

 

Off the rail

You can buy off the rail & sale dresses are & take home on the day.   

My wedding is soon 

 

I don’t have long till my wedding can I still buy a wedding dress

Yes and don't panic you can buy from us 'off the rail' we have lots of dresses at reasonable prices to buy and take home on the day.

 Some of our Made to order dresses can be ordered with a chargeable rush cut service too. 
 

Losing weight  

 

This is the most asked question by far.

I aim to loose weight. What if I change in size after ordering? 

Don’t worry at all. Most brides change size and weight a little between ordering this is normal. This is where my bridal seamstress comes in! Alterations are expected on most dresses. No one is a standard dress size so for e.g. nipping in at the waist/bust or taking up the length will ensure a perfect fit.

At the time we take the measurments we can chat about your expectations & dress size.

A dress that is made to orders made to a set of standard measurements e.g 14,16,18. Each label has their own unique size chart (bridal labels tend to work out small sizes) We will take your measurements and work out which will be the closest fit. 

Once the dress arrives it will need slightly altering to fit your body shape more closely in one area or another, this is normal.
