Yes we operate on an appointment only basis here at the Boutique to ensure that you get the best possible experience. We sometimes have same day appointments avaialble – call or email us to enquire. 

HOW LONG DOES A WEDDING DRESS APPOINTMENT LAST?

Our first appointments for trying on and selecting your dream dress normally last around an hour.

If you need longer then this can be arranged, but please bear in mind that we may be busy at weekends so a longer appointment may not be available.

CAN I BRING MY ENTOURAGE?

We know how important it is that you have the important people around you to help you to choose your dream dress, and we are happy to accommodate up to 3 guests to accompany you on your appointment. Please get in touch with us if you want to bring more people to your appointment.

CAN I BRING CHILDREN TO MY APPOINTMENT?

We do allow children in the boutique as we pride ourselves on being friendly and inclusive. Please note that any children brought to your appointment will need to be supervised at all times. 

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?

We recommend that you bring (or wear!) comfortable pale coloured underwear to your appointment – a strapless bra is handy but not essential. 

We have a wide range of accessories available for you to try on but if you have something special (like your something old, something borrowed or something blue!) then you are welcome to bring them to your appointment.

We do ask that you wear a minimal amount of makeup so that we can protect the condition of our dresses for future brides to try on.

WHAT SIZES DO YOU STOCK?

We have a range of designs in the boutique available to try on in sizes 8-16.

The majority of our dresses are available to order in all sizes from 0-36 (on selected styles).

We welcome brides of all shapes and sizes in store where we will do a personal consultation to find the right style for you. 

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I ORDER MY WEDDING DRESS?

The majority of our wedding dresses take approximately 6-8 months to arrive in the boutique once they have been ordered. 

We recommend that you start looking at least one year before your wedding date so that there is suitable time for fittings and alterations that need to be made. 

If you are working to a shorter time scale then do get in touch and we can discuss the styles that we may be able to ordered on a rush delivery. 

We also have a range of sample dresses in store that are available immediately.

DO YOU HAVE AN ALTERATION SERVICE?

We have an in-house alteration specialist that would be delighted to help you with fitting your dream dress to fit your curves perfectly.

The cost of any alterations will depend on the the nature and extent of alterations required which is discussed at the first fitting.

We are able to store your wedding dress right up until the big day so you can collect when it is most convenient for you. 

WHAT IS YOUR PRICE RANGE?

Our dresses range in price from less than £1000 to £3000+. 

It is a really good idea to have an idea of budget ahead of your appointment so that we can help you with finding the perfect dress.
