Before Your Appointment
Our gowns start right around £699 and go up from there. There will always be a large selection of gowns between the £2,500 - £6,000 range. We will absolutely honor your budget and do our best to find you a gown that you love.
Absolutely! We have lots of dress options that can be ordered with a quick turnaround. Depending on the designer, it may incur an additional fee. We also sell select samples right off the rail (and often for a discount!).
Some brides find their dream dress straight away. For your peace of mind, looking a year before your big day allows you time to try on dresses, place your order in time and allows for alterations. Most of our gowns are made to order meaning that the dress doesn’t start getting cut and sewn until you place your deposit on the dress! The earlier you decide on a dress, the more time you have to plan all the other details of your wedding, or just relax and get excited for your big day!
We suggest keeping the entourage simple. Choose two to three close friends and/or family members who know you best and who will give you the support and encouragement you deserve! Above all else, remember you are the one who will be wearing the dress – you are the bride, it’s your gown! We have limited seating so if you bring more than the number of guests that the room allows, please bare in mind they will need to stand. Only bring the key people that you cannot make this decision without. For some, this may mean shopping alone and for others it may be a couple of loved ones.
We carry dress sizes from 8 - 26. Every dress will fit differently. We understand that it can be difficult to envision your wedding dress when the sample that you try on doesn't fit perfectly, but we've got all sorts of tricks to help you get a close(r) vision of what you will look like on your wedding day. We've got pedestals to stand on to add length, clips to close in fabric, and panels to add fabric.
There are dedicated parking bays all along the main street and side streets , you can make parking payments over the phone or you can purchase vouchers next door to us.
