WHEN SHOULD I START LOOKING?
We would advise that your dress should be ordered no later than 12 months before your wedding day, in order to give time for your dress to be made and for all alterations to be completed. Alterations take place 8 -12 weeks before the big day so preferably starting a year before your wedding date would make your wedding planning a bit more stress free. Some brides will find their dress on the first visit to our boutique and others will like to visit several boutiques which will require more time. Although 9 - 12 months lead time is ideal, if you have a shorter time frame please come and see us and we will be able to advise you on dresses that are available at shorter notice. There will always be dresses you can buy.
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 no more than 3 people to attend your appointment with you.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We provide shoes and apart from that you can wear what you feel comfortable with. We would advise bringing a strapless bra to ensure that you get the best impression of your dress during your appointment with us. In order not to damage the gowns, our stylist will join you in the fitting room to help you in and out of the dresses.
HOW LONG ARE APPOINTMENTS?
Appointments are 90 minutes long so you can enjoy yourself and not feel rushed. You will have the boutique to yourself and a stylist solely dedicated to you to help you find your dream dress!
WILL I NEED ALTERATIONS?
We like to order the dress as close to your current size as possible, but all wedding dresses need alterations to give it a perfect fit for your body. We don't have an inhouse seamstress however we do have seamstresses we can recommend.
