When should I buy my wedding dress? 


We would always advise to start looking ideally a year before. 


We would ask for a minimum of 8 months to order a gown and for alterations. However, more time than this is ideal. Most of our brides we have found purchase their gown between 12-18 months before their wedding.


It’s never to early to find your dream gown. You know when you are ready to say yes. 


What happens if my wedding is less than 8 months away? 


Don’t panic, we can help! 


Some designers offer gowns with rush options;  however, there is an additional charge for this service. Also, some designers hold gowns in stock.  Also, we have a beautiful range of off the peg gowns ready to take the same day.


What is your price range?


Our gowns range from £699-£1599. Our off the peg range are all under £999. 


What sizes do you stock?


The gowns in the boutique range from a size 10-28. However, the gowns can be ordered in a variety of sizes. We are proud to offer a range of gowns to suit different sizes and shapes; our aim is to give all our brides the ultimate bridal shopping experience and this begins with our choice of gowns. 


Do I need to book an appointment?


To ensure we can offer a personal, memorable wedding dress shopping experience we are open by appointment only. We do ask you to book an appointment but this ensures you have exclusive use of our boutique and our dedicated attention throughout your appointment. We offer appointments weekdays, evenings (Monday-Thursday) and Saturdays. 


How long is my appointment?


We reserve the boutique for two hours for your special bridal shopping experience. With refreshments, a personal bridal stylist and exclusive use of the boutique; it’s the perfect place to find that special gown. 


How many guests can I bring with me? 


Would advise to bring 2-3 (too many opinions get confusing). However, please don’t worry if you wish to bring more. Just remember though we all have different tastes and what we would pick for our wedding dress would all vary. So, listen to your heart after all it’s your special day. 


What do I need to bring?


We do not ask you to bring anything. If you wish to wear a strapless, nude bra please do but do not buy one especially. We have shoes in store for you to wear whilst trying the gowns.


Is the boutique accessible for wheelchair users/pushchairs?


Our boutique is on one floor so yes it is. There are a couple of small steps; however, they would not cause a problem. Please feel free to ask for photos if you have any worries.


Do you stock bridal accessories?


We love to create that perfect bridal look so we have a selection of veils and hairpieces to compliment your gown. We can help style your wedding dress to make your bridal vision become a reality.
