Bridal FAQs

What are your opening hours?

We are open by appointment only.  This enables us to accommodate you as much as possible.  Appointments are available between 10am and 7pm six days a week and between 10am and 4pm on a Sunday.  If you need an appointment after this time please let us know and we will do our best to assist you.

Do I need to book an appointment?

We offer all our brides a one-to-one consultation and are open by appointment only. This ensures every bride gets the best level of service. 
Sunday and late evening appointments are available but a booking fee of £30 will be charged to secure the appointment. This will be refunded if you find your dream dress in store.

When should I start looking for my wedding dress?

We suggest a year before your wedding date. Most wedding dresses take approximately 6 months to be delivered, so to allow plenty of time for fittings, you should be placing your order at least 8 months prior to your planned wedding date.

Will you store my dress?

We are happy to store your dress until you have your first fitting with the seamstress. Once your fittings are complete, we will store your dress until the week of your wedding. We will steam your wedding dress ready for collection the week of your wedding.

What sizes are your samples?

Our sample wedding dresses are in sizes 10 – 28. Looking for your wedding dress is unlike shopping on the high street. Please bear in mind we only have each dress in one size.

What will a bridal gown cost?

The prices of our wedding dresses that have to be ordered in vary between £599 – £1800. We would recommend you advise us of your budget at the start of your appointment.
Alternatively, we have a selection of “off the peg dresses” which start from £299.

What do alterations cost?

As the seamstress is self-employed, we do not have a set fee list for their charges. The cost depends on the amount of alterations that are required, but as a guide you should allow between £90 – £200.

Can I get a dress at short notice?

We have a selection of discontinued wedding dresses that are available to buy off the peg at a discounted price.  Shop samples can also be altered to fit either way within 2 sizes.
Some of our designers offer a fast delivery service but the designers charge an additional fee for this.

Do you have parking?

We have plenty of FREE parking right outside our boutique.  There is never a shortage of spaces!

What should I bring to my appointment?

It would be a good idea to go looking for your dream dress with someone who will give you honest feedback. We have the space for you to bring 2 friends (or just your mum). Always remember, the most important opinion is yours!
Unfortunately, due to the size and layout of our boutique, we would ask that young children and babies are not brought with you to your appointment..
