When to Start Shopping for a Wedding Dress

Wedding dress shopping is a part of wedding planning that most brides are looking forward to; and is one of the first things on their to do list. So you can start shopping for your dress whenever you feel ready. Bridal dresses can and often do change with seasons so if you find something you love, you need to be ready to commit to buying it. 

The dresses do take approximately four to five months to be made (although shorter timescales can be accommodated by some designers); and brides need to allow couple of months for alterations too. So our advice is that brides should leave themselves plenty of time for shopping to reduce the amount of worry about getting that perfect dress in time for your big day. 

At times the brides do not have all that time to find the dress, so we have a gorgeous selection of amazing sample wedding dresses on sale- all at amazing prices and all ready to take away on the day of purchase!

Order Timelines for Your Bridal Gown

Once you have found your perfect dress, we will take your measurements and agree the size of the gown that will be ordered for you. All the details will be noted on our order form. You will be asked to sign the order form; and 50% deposit will also be payable at that time. The order will be placed with the designer and the process of making your beautiful wedding dress will commence! 

The dresses normally take four to five months to arrive with us. Once we have received your gorgeous gown, we will invite you for a fitting appointment so you can make sure that you are absolutely happy with your dress; and also ask you to make a balance payment for your dress.

You are welcome to take your dress away with you as soon as it has been paid for or we are happy to store it for you until your wedding day.  


Wedding Dress Alterations

Wedding dresses come in a standard length; and it is not uncommon for brides to change their shape by the time that the wedding dress arrives. As such some alterations are always required to make the bridal gown fit perfectly. They take place approximately 4-6 weeks before your wedding to ensure the best fit of the dress. The cost of those is not included in the price of the gown and will be advised individually depending on the level of work required on each gown. They are payable directly to the seamstress at the time of fittings being done. At least 2 fitting appointments are required.

We work with a highly skilled independent seamstress who comes into our shop and offers an alteration service which is exclusive to our brides. As the seamstress is independent, she only comes in when needed and as such booking an appointment is essential. Appointments are available Monday to Friday and on Sundays.
