What if my dress needs altering?
Our expert in house seamstress who has over 30 years experience within the bridal industry, can alter any dress purchased from us. So whether you’ve found your dream dress in our annual sample sale or we’ve ordered it in especially for you, we will fit it to perfection ensuring that you look and feel beautiful on your Special Day. We like to start fitting bridal dresses 8 weeks before the wedding and for any other occasion 6 weeks before. You will usually need to come back for 2-3 fittings and then arrange a date for collection so we have time to re-steam your dress for you.
How many people can I bring with me?
We recommend bringing no more than 2-3 people to your appointment. This is because it can be overwhelming having too many different opinions. If you are undecided between a couple of dresses or wanted the approval from someone else then of course you can come back with a different set of people! We usually give between 1-1.5 hours for bridal appointments, and for prom / bridesmaids / anything else up to an hour.
What sizes are your dresses?
We stock samples in sizes UK6-UK36 and can order dresses in with bespoke measurements if needed.
When should I start looking for my wedding dress?
We advise around 12months before but there is no right or wrong amount of time. We have brides who come in just 6 weeks before who will buy a stock dress and we have brides who order their dress 2 years in advance. We just like you to be aware that your dress can take up to six months to arrive once ordered and we then like to have plenty time to alter it. We will store your dress for you free of charge ready to be collected the day before your wedding, so there is no need to find room at home if you buy a while in advance.
