Do I need an appointment?
Appointments are recommended for all departments. As we work on a one-to-one basis, it is impossible to allow self service. We strive to provide great service in a comfortable atmosphere; our private boutique allows us to give a personal consultation and a fabulous experience. As Saturdays are our busiest day we recommend booking a few weeks ahead.
Who/what shall I bring with me to my appointment?
We see day in and day out that brides usually find their dress when they least expect to! So it’s important to bring along the people that matter in your life so they can be present when you experience that magical moment of you finding “the one”. Also, make sure you bring along a strapless bra and wear some underwear!
When should I order my dress?
There is no set formula when ordering your dress it’s really about when you feel ready to say yes to the dress and you have finances in place this could be as early as 2 years before your wedding!
The average time for a bridal gowns to be made is six to nine months. As a bride, you need at least two fittings to make the dress perfect, so it is best to leave at least three months for alterations. For these two reasons, it is best to order your dress no later than twelve months before your wedding however don’t worry if your wedding is sooner than this (see the question below).
What if my wedding is within 6 months?
