Do I need to book an appointment and how long do are appointments?
Yes, we would ask that you book an appointment in advance to ensure there is a sale consultant available to assist you. Each bridal appointment will take approximately 1 – 1.5 hours and bridesmaid appointments are 1 hour long.
Can I wear tan/ makeup for my appointment?
We do ask that you refrain from wearing tan or makeup on the day if at all possible, as it can soil the dresses.
How far in advance should I start shopping for bridesmaids gowns?
Depending on the range you like, delivery time can take approximately 12-22 weeks to arrive in store. Then you would need to factor in time for possible alterations. Equally there are some designers we carry that offer quicker delivery/ rush delivery for an additional cost should you not have as much time before your wedding day.
How far in advance should I start shopping for bridal gowns?
We would suggest between 9 and 12 months before your wedding as the ranges we carry can take approximately 6 – 8 months to arrive in store. Equally there are some designers we carry that offer quicker delivery/ rush delivery for an additional cost should you not have as much time before your wedding day. We can also sell some of our gowns off the rail too, so please do ask our sale consultant on the day.
What do I need to bring with me for my bridal appointment?
If there is an item you like to bring, for example a particular pair of shoes, or type of underwear you wish to try on with a wedding gown please feel free to bring them with you but otherwise you don’t need to bring anything else along for your bridal consultation.
