Frequently Asked Questions
Your Appointment – What Should I Expect?
Your one to one appointment will be with a trained stylist who can assist you to find your dream wedding gown. Appointments are generally 1.5 hours. Fresh water/cordial is always offered at every appointment & we are happy to offer tea,coffee & wine too! Plus sweet and savory nibbles for yourself and up to three guests.
What Underwear/Shoes Should I Wear?
We would suggest wearing light coloured underwear for trying on wedding gowns or if you wish to wear spanx, please do so, do not be embarrassed. A large percentage of our brides wear these undergarments on their wedding day to make them feel more confident.
A pale shoe with a higher wedge heel,that is easy to slip on and off, will make your visit more comfortable. All gowns are made for 5′ 8″ brides. We don’t advise high shoes with a sharp heel as these can tear holes into the delicate trains of our gowns that can not be repaired if damaged. Thank you.We do also have a step available for you to view the hem detail to full effect.
Can I Wear Jewellery & Make Up?
Please, no sharp jewellery or heavy makeup and whilst we understand why you may like to wear fake tan, we do ask for you not to wear it whilst trying on our designer dresses. We like to keep all of our dresses in immaculate condition.
How Much Are The Wedding Dresses?
Main suite wedding dresses we stock have been carefully selected. Our stock ranges from £1050 – £1900. Our Sample Suite gowns start from £399 – £999. Read More about our sample suite
How Many Guests Can I Bring?
For your own comfort and that of your stylist, we suggest bringing a maximum of THREE guests. In our years of experience, we feel that too many varying opinions can really confuse a bride as everyone has a different view on the style of gown they prefer
