At your bridal appointment, our aim is first to ensure you are relaxed! We love to hear about your ideas, themes, colours, flowers, music, and fabulous locations, as this gives us an understanding of you and your perfect day which is essential in order to find you the perfect dress!
Come with nude underwear or shapewear that fits you well. It can make a huge difference in how a gown hangs. Don't worry if you're not quite that prepared yet; most brides rock up in black bras!
For your modesty, we offer you a robe to pop on and off between gowns so don't fret about having to bare all (even though we have seen it all before)!
We have a selection of shoes in the boutique and a small box to stand on (most gowns are very long). So, there’s no need to bring your own shoes unless you are very organised or want to wear your favourites.
We operate on an appointment basis so you have our undivided attention. Weekday appointments usually run for between one and two hours, but we may be able to spend longer with you if time permits and you are likely to have the run of the shop! Naturally, Saturdays are our busiest day, so booking ahead is essential and we may operate two fitting areas.
We have a computerised appointment-booking system which will send you an email confirming of all your appointments. It is important to confirm your appointment via return email to secure your booking. It is very straightforward, but if you have any queries we are always at the end of the phone.
We suggest you limit your guests to one or two to share the experience. This ensures that we can accommodate them comfortably and that we don’t get too many conflicting opinions. So, only bring those whose opinions really do count. We advise not to bring children, so everyone can concentrate on the bride. However, we do understand that this is not always possible and we have some emergency toys on hand and baby changing facilities.
If you wish to arrange an appointment outside our standard weekday hours we will be happy to try and accommodate you. However, there will be a small booking fee of £20 which is redeemable against any order you place with us.
We offer a Luxury Appointment on Sundays between 10 am and 11.30am to accommodate very busy brides or those that would like to make this a special event to share with friends and family. This appointment carries a fee of £60, which is redeemable against the cost of your gown when you place an order. At your appointment, you will be offered light refreshments including a glass of Prosecco for you and your guests!
