FAQs & HELPFUL HINTS
Below are just a few queries we answer but of course, if there's anything else you want to know just drop us a line.
When should I start looking?
We would advise that your dress should be ordered 7–9 months before your wedding to give time for your dress to be made and for all alterations to be completed. Some brides will find their dress on the first visit to a boutique and others will like to visit several boutiques which will require more time. Although 7–9 months lead time is ideal, if you have a shorter timeframe please come and see us and we will be able to advise you on dresses that are available at shorter notice.
Who should I bring with me?
We appreciate that this is a very exciting time for you and that you may wish to share this experience with a large group of family and friends. However, too many opinions can become confusing when you are trying to choose your dress. We would suggest 2 or 3 people would be ideal, it is of course up to you and we can accommodate more guests if you desire. We would also suggest that if you are choosing your bridesmaids dresses from us that you book another appointment with your bridal party so that the focus remains on you for the entire appointment.
What should I wear?
You can wear whatever you wish, although a strapless bra is advisable to ensure that you get the best impression of your dress.
What happens at my appointment?
After we have spent some time gathering information about you, the date of your wedding, your style of wedding and your budget etc., you will have the opportunity to browse our full collection before you start to try on dresses. Our consultant will be with you through the entire process, guiding and advising you as little or as much as you wish.
You can of course try on veils, headdresses and sashes/belts to complement your chosen dress.
