Questions

ASK US

anything

When should I start shopping for my dress?

Ever been shopping with no money or at the wrong time and then when you have to find something, you can’t? Although not exactly the same, the idea remains identical. Unless you are prepared to find your dress, then actually trying on dresses can be a confusing and sometimes futile exercise.

We find brides who have a few key items planned are more prepared and find the whole situation less daunting. These are your wedding date booked and the venue and ideally a preferred price point for us to work with. A Christmas wedding in a castle will almost always result in a different dress to a wedding in Cyprus in August.

A general rule is about 18months up to 9 months before the wedding is perfect. There are of course exceptions and we often have brides who choose her dress 2 years before and even 3 months before. If you are unsure just contact us and we can discuss your situation and timescale.

Do I need to bring anything?

Not really. We are always asked this, and we often say an open mind. Honestly it helps sometimes! Wear what you feel comfortable in. You will be spending a large amount of your time with us in your underwear. Although it isn’t in our job description, it is part of our working day, so we aren’t going to screech at your M&S undies. “Hold you” in pants and strapless bras are not something we expect you to wear unless you want to.

George

Do I have to book an appointment?

Yes please. A planned day out trying on wedding dresses with your loved ones, who have often travelled or cleared their diary for the day, only to be told we can’t see you is the sole reason we always advise booking an appointment. Even through the week we can be fully booked and unable to accommodate walk ins.

Where to start?

Dont worry, this is why you are coming to us! We do!  We have years of experience and training to be able to know what will work for your ideal, your style desires and your body shape.

We generally need 2 things to find you a dress, a wedding date and how much you want to spend. Everything else we can find out with you. Have a look at the dresses you like, favourite them on your lookbook (this gets sent to you once you have booked your appointment). Then just come ready to celebrate! 

Emma

How much are your dresses?

Our dresses vary across collections, with the price point ranging between £950 – £2700. We do have sample dresses that are priced lower than this. Should you wish to discuss your price point in more detail before you book an appointment, please contact us.

How many people can I bring?

Ideally a maximum of 4. Always bring the people you need with you to help you choose your dress. Think carefully about rearranging should one not be there. Trying on the one for the first time, is a wonderful experience and a moment that cannot be replicated again. If you feel you need more than the suggested number please contact us to confirm so that we can try and accommodate everyone. We aren’t in the business of saying no! PLEASE NOTE we cannot always accommodate large groups on a Saturday.

Emily

Do you store the dress for me before the wedding?

Yes. We offer an in house storage option. There is a one off fee for taking advantage of this facility of £49, the dress will also remain insured under our policy.

Do you offer Alterations?

We do! We have 2 amazing seamstresses. They are perfectionists like us. They are as passionate about a dress fitting and looking as imagined as we are. We are involved from the beginning to the end.
Unlike other shops, everything is with us!  This means you are stuck with us!

Emily

How much are alterations ?

This is a highly technical and complex service, that when done correctly looks as though it has never been altered. For such an impeccable finish you can expect to usually pay between £200 – £350 for a full alteration package.

Can you make changes to your dresses?

You’ve come to the right place! We specialise in bespoke changes, little matching straps, tops, belts. We will always advise you and help you with all the options available. Our designers are chosen for their flexibility. We also have two extremely talented seamstresses, along with pattern cutters and design experience, if it’s possible we can do it!
