I highly recommend Sass & Grace! I was recommended Sass & Grace from a friend – and it surpassed my expectations. The shop is lovely and when you book an appointment you get the place to yourself – there is an amazing selection of beautiful dresses! Sam (the owner) is so welcoming and helpful – she was brilliant in quickly understanding what dresses suited me and guided me to my final dress choice. Also, I really appreciated how Sam trusted me to get into the dresses myself (though was very happy to help if I needed it). After a few embarrassing experiences in other shop changes rooms, being in Sass and Grace felt really comfortable and put me at ease which I was so grateful for. Also, a big shout out to Dalia who is a miracle worker! She is the seams mistress who worked wonders on altering my dress and made it absolutely perfect.
Everyone I met at the shop was so kind and worked so hard to make the whole process easy and wonderful. Big big thank you! - Emma x
Sam was amazing, she is very welcoming and guides you through the experience expertly. Everything from the personalised welcome sign to the individual appointment slots meant that my Mum and I were able to really enjoy the experience and take our time to find the perfect dress. Sam was very understanding given my vague requirements and was great at steering me towards different styles and lengths to try and narrow down my choice. I wasn't able to pick on the day but would throughly recommend Sass & Grace as although I didn't end up finding my dress there it was the best experience I had (and I ended up trying on a lot of dresses!) and one that couldn't be matched. Thank you Sam for all your help and guidance - the boutique is beautiful and the experience was outstanding, I would thoroughly recommend Sass & Grace for any bride looking for a truly special dress and bridal shopping experience.
We know that it sounds as though it is owned by two best friends, and through your journey we will get to know you quite well, but that isn’t where it came from. Every bride wants to look elegant, graceful and beautiful on their big day but they also want to feel special, completely comfortable, totally themselves and to have a real twinkle in their eyes. We aim to help your personality shine on your Wedding Day and help you look and feel full of grace but with a sassiness all of your own – Sass & Grace
This so much depends on you. Many brides prefer to choose a dress quite early on so that they can relax and focus their attention on other parts of the wedding plan in the knowledge that, to quote one of our brides, “if I start to stress about anything, now at least I know that I’ll look and feel great! It is about me, isn’t it?” ….. Yes it is! Other brides to be are quite relaxed and choose their dress later on in the planning process. We would recommend choosing your bridal gown at least 8 – 9 months before the big day to ensure that you have the widest possible choice and adequate time for fittings, however we have had brides finding the dress of their dreams and having it fitted to perfection within only 3 – 4 months
There are no hard and fast rules but if you have a Pinterest board or some clippings and ideas of what you want for your wedding day, these can be very useful in understanding what you really like. Similarly, if you have any photos of you that you feel really shows you and your personality at its best, do bring them along. The only other thing to bring is some idea of your budget and an open mind! Sometimes trying something that you’re really not sure about will help focus you on what you really do like …… other times it can be a really really pleasant surprise!
We would recommend bringing one or two close friends or family members whose company you enjoy and whose opinions you trust. Although you may be tempted, or feel pressured to bring more, having lots of different opinions can become quite confusing and spoil your enjoyment. If you really want to bring more, that is not a problem, however, to get the best of both worlds, many of our brides have a first appointment with a select few, and then have a 2nd appointment with some different friends or family to share their choice.
Our sample dresses range from UK 10 to UK 18, however, we have many tips and tricks which will help to fit the dress to your figure so you can see the look you would get. When it comes to ordering your dress, our designers provide for UK sizes 2 – 34 which is then altered to fit you perfectly.
The cost of alterations is separate to the cost of the dress and will vary depending on the complexity of the alterations needed. Once you have chosen your dress, we can advise on what alterations might be necessary and the most cost effective way of getting a perfect fit. Some of our designers customise various aspects, such as length, and this will, of course, reduce any alterations needed. You can also work with some of our designers to customise their dresses, though this would carry an additional charge.
To ensure complete privacy for our brides to be, we do work on an appointment only basis. No other bride or bridesmaid will be choosing a dress while you are with us. We allow at least one and a half hours for a first Bridal appointment and that usually flies by!!
There is no limit. You can try as many as you like in the time we have. We have a huge selection of dresses in different styles, different materials and from different designers but our brides usually find their dress after trying on between 6 and 12 wedding dresses.
Whilst you are selecting your dress, we prefer that no photos are taken. When you choose your wedding dress it is such a special time, and the feeling you have cannot be captured on a phone. What you will see when you analyse pictures after your appointment, is all the imperfections – a dress that doesn’t fit you correctly (yet), no hair or makeup done and imperfect lighting to name a few. Unless you are a professional photographer, you will have a completely different picture to the one you saw and felt when you looked in the mirror. We will happily send you some professionally taken pictures of your dress that shows it in the best light and save the pictures of you for when you have had the dress fitted to you and taken by your own photographer.
