Meet The Team

Do you have a catalogue?

As we have a huge range of dresses, and the stock changes all the time it is not cost effective for us to produce a catalogue-we therefore keep our website updated regularly.

What price range are your dresses?

We try to keep our dresses at affordable prices; they range from £450 – £2,500.

Do you mind if I bring in photos of dresses I like?

Of course not. We encourage brides to do this – it is very helpful for us. But do remember that the models used in these photos are usually 6ft tall, and size 6 – 8. So do be open minded and let us suggest styles that you may not have thought of before. Try them on – sometimes it can surprise you!

Who should I bring when I come for my appointment?

When shopping for a wedding gown all the experts advise not to bring too many people. Your mum and one or two other trusted individuals seem to be the perfect mix. Pick a few people who love you, your experience will be a lot more enjoyable and you will have a better chance of being successful in your quest. It’s great to have one or two people who are close to you to give you honest opinions but bringing too many people to “poll the audience” is a recipe for disaster that may make you miss out on your perfect gown. In the end, the only opinion that truly counts when picking a wedding gown is YOURS! You will be the center of attention at your wedding. You want a wedding gown that will make you look fantastic and feel amazing. You are the only one who will really know when you have found the gown that does this.

Will you store my dress when it arrives in-store?

Yes, and this is free of charge unlike a lot of other shops.

What if I find a dress that I love but I am not ready to buy yet?

There can be several reasons why you may not want to buy:
a) Don’t have the money for the deposit? If this is so then do tell us and we can work out a payment plan for you.
b) Want to bring mum/sister etc.? Then tell us and we will try & work round when suits you – it is best to get your dream dress ordered early as we never know when a manufacture will discontinue a dress-and we would hate for you to be disappointed.

How much is the deposit?

We need 50% off the price of the dress before we can order it for you. If you don’t have the 50% we will let you pay off your deposit over a period of weeks or months (depending on date of your wedding) – we will always do our best to help out our brides.

Do you have a good range of wedding accessories?

Yes we always carry a good range of jewelry, veils, tiaras, stationary, gifts and shoes. We have a solely dedicated accessory floor which you do not need an appointment to view.

What should I order first wedding dress or bridesmaid’s dresses?

I personally feel that your wedding dress is the most important part of the wedding and it will dictate the theme of your day – so I would say get your dress and then get the bridesmaids to complement the dress. Remember it can take anything from 3 months – 9 months for a wedding dress to arrive in whereas bridesmaids are approx 12-16weeks for delivery. Do remember a lot of manufactures will do a rush delivery for a surcharge so do ask if your wedding is quite soon.

Are the dresses on your website in store?

Yes – 98% of what you seen on our site we have in store as a sample for you to try on, but if you are coming to try on a specific dress, please ring and check with us first.

What size are your wedding dresses?

We keep a range of sample dresses from size 12 – 18 and all of our dresses go right up to a size 30, so never panic. If there is a specific dress you want to try on and want to check what size our sample is then do feel free to ring us-we will do our best to help you out.

How often do you get new stock?

We buy new stock twice a year and they arrive in store around June – July and then again in November – December.

Do I need an appointment?

We do advise you to make an appointment. As we work on a one-to-one basis and have only one bridal room for fittings it will save you wasting your time if you book ahead. Although, if you call in and we can see you we will do.

How long will my appointment be?

If this is your first bridal appointment you will have a one hour slot allocated to you. If you are coming to retry we will give you another one hour slot.

Should I look for my wedding gown and the bridesmaids’ gown on the same day?

Don’t try to do too much in one day. We suggest you not try to shop for bridesmaids and a wedding dress all in the same day. Finding that perfect dress can be harder, more time consuming, and more mentally exhausting than you think. We suggest you focus on your wedding gown first, and plan a separate day for the bridesmaids shopping. So you can fully enjoy the experience.

Do you do the alterations?

We do not have an in house dressmaker but we have a very extensive list of fantastic independent dressmaker’s right across the country that will be able to do your fittings for you. This will be more cost effective for you and may suit better, as you can go outside of working hours..

I plan to loose weight – when should I start to look for my dress?

Bridal wear can be taken in easily enough – and I would rather your dress came in too big rather than too small as there is not as easy to let it out. Planning a wedding is stressful enough so don’t put extra pressure on yourself by ordering a dress a few sizes smaller than you actually are. Most brides buy their dresses 6-18 months before hand so order your dress at the size you are then – and if you have to have it taken in to fit you then well done, and if you haven’t lost weight then you have a fantastic dress that you don’t have to panic over.
