It is always helpful to bring someone along with you and we advise that you bring no more than two guests. However, if you wish to bring more than two people, please make an appointment Monday- Friday as Saturdays get extremely busy.
Can I bring children?
We do not recommend bringing children with you as it can be stressful and distracting, it can also be unsafe as there are many pins, mirrors and stairs around the store.
What do I need to bring to my first appointment?
For trying on dresses, if would be helpful if you wore a strapless bra. You are welcome to bring shoes with you, however we have various sizes for brides to use during their appointment.
It may also be useful if you take a look at our website to get an idea of the styles we offer and make a note of the styles you like as it gives us an idea when you come in for your appointment.

Our dresses to order range from £695 – £2,500 and we always have dresses to buy immediately from stock starting from £195.
How long do I need to order my dress?
If you are buying a dress immediately from stock, we may only need to order your accessories. However, dresses ordered from our collection (in your size and colour) can take u to 4 months. There can be an option for a rush order from most of our designers, this may incur an extra cost.
How many fittings will I need?
As our dresses are not made to measure, we will order your dress in the closest size to you. We usually work on the basis of having two fittings; one to pin the amendments and a second to check that you are happy with the changes.
All alterations are subject to an additional charge based on what you have altered. We offer an in-house alteration service on a Tuesday or Thursday.
There is no obligation to have your alterations done with us, if you wish to take it somewhere else, we have a seamstress we can highly recommend.
What do I bring to my first fitting?
It is very important that you bring the shoes (or ones of the same height ) and the underwear you will be wearing on the day.
