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.

PLEASE NOTE WE CAN’T RUN APPOINTMENTS IF YOU DON’T HAVE A VENUE BOOKED AND/OR YOUR WEDDING DATE

 

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 you charge for appointments?

We don’t charge for your first bridal appointment, or your celebration appointment (should you need one) any additional styling or bridal appointments will be charged at £50 per session.

Once you have found your dress with us, you will receive a styling appointment, again free of charge, with any additional styling sessions charged accordingly.

To be honest, most of our brides don’t need any more than our complimentary appointments, but if you need to know about anything or worry you may need more sessions please get in touch.

Do I need to bring anything?

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 3 things to find you a dress, a wedding date, a wedding venue 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!

How much are your dresses?

Our dresses vary across collections, with the price point ranging between £4500-£1800.  The average dress purchase (dress only, including tax and shipping) with us is between £1900 -£2500.

We do have “out of the collection” 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?

A maximum of 4 ideally. 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 and we can look at arranging an out-of-hours appointment on a Sunday for a £50 fee. We aren’t in the business of saying no! PLEASE NOTE we cannot always accommodate larger groups.

Nicole

Do you store the dress for me before the wedding?

Yes. We offer an in house storage option. There is a yearly fee for taking advantage of this facility of £99, the dress will also remain insured under our policy per year of storage.

Do you offer Alterations?

We do! We have 3 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 throughout the whole process.

We suggest you allocate between £300-350 for a full alterations service from us.

What are the additional costs when buying a dress from you ?

We are all about Transparency, so nothing is hidden and knowing your options means you can choose what does and doesn’t work for you. 

We have two ways to buy your dress with us, 1. Out of the Collection and 2. Making a special order in your size. Should you choose to order a dress that we make especially for you, will carry a shipping cost of £50.

Generally those that choose accessories with us, will select a veil and perhaps a head piece and jewellery. The average amount for an accessories purchase (Veil and earrings for example) £300.

Our veils range from £999 – £165

In addition we can, should you choose to, store the dress with us for £99.

Our alterations again, are a choice to have with us, and usually are for the standard alterations £300-350

 

We want to provide the right options for you, and at every stage of your time with us, it is always your choice to use our additional services.

 

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!
