Amazing shop. Alice was so kind and helpful and made me feel so welcome. Couldn’t do enough for me ......best shop i have been to. Thank you Alice x
Thank you so much for all of your help finding a wedding dress for Helen and our bridesmaids dresses. Helen received so many compliments on her dress, it looked amazing. The knowledge and support from you and Maria was brilliant, especially as neither of us knew what we wanted! We will certainly be recommending you to all of our friends.
Although it's not a must, we would certainly recommend having your date and venue confirmed before shopping for your dress. Understanding the venue, and importantly the time of year, for your wedding can influence which style of dress you ultimately fall in love with. It's important that you consider the feel of the venue, the space, and the kind of day you want for your wedding.
We would recommend starting the search no more than 12 months before your wedding, as styles and preferences can change. As most dresses take several months to make, we recommend that you place your order between 6 and 9 months in advance, allowing time for alterations and fittings to take place before the big day.
We would recommend placing your order 4 - 6 months before the wedding, particularly if it is for multiple dresses. There can be small variations between colour batches, so it's best to order all of the party's dresses and accessories together when possible, to make sure they match beautifully.
Don't panic! There are always options to explore, such as putting in a 'rush order' (this is a chargeable service) or checking stocks directly with the suppliers. We also have a range of sample sale dresses in store that are ready to buy off the shelf. The best thing to do is get in touch with us and we will do our best to help.
Just your wonderful self! Although if you already have shoes or any accessories that you know you want to wear then it's great to have these with you. There will be a member of staff helping you in and out of the dresses, so bear this in mind with your underwear choices - don't worry too much though, we've seen it all before! Do also think about what kind of bra you would like to wear on your big day, so that we can discuss this when looking at the dresses. If you have an option to hand then bring it with you. We do ask that you avoid a fresh fake-tan for a couple of days before your appointment.
Every wedding party is different and we don't set a number on guests in the boutique. However, remember that the appointment is all about you! It's a special time and only invite people who will support and guide you - it can be a difficult decision to make and sometimes too many opinions can hinder not help!
We stock from a size 6 to size 18, with the majority of samples being a 10, 12 or 14. As with most bridal boutiques we only have one sample per style, so we carefully pin or pad you in no matter what the dress size! Most dresses can be ordered from a size 6 to a size 30 though so don't fret, your dress will be ordered in the perfect size for you.
