Frequently asked questions
What is a sample dress?
A sample dress is just one that has been tried on in the boutique. It is an ‘off the peg’ dress that we only have one of. Once it’s gone it’s gone.
Do you only stock sample dresses?
We have a small selection of bridal separates that can be ordered in various sizes, other then that all our dresses are samples to take away.
I only have a few weeks/months until my wedding can you help me?
Yes!! Our amazing samples are ready to go and we have a amazing seamstress on hand to make it fit you perfectly whether you have months or weeks to go.
What sizes are your samples in the shop?
We currently stock samples ranging from size 8 – 24, see our collection page to view some of the dresses we have available. Dresses can be altered by our or any seamstress and can usually go up/down by a size or two. (depending on each dress). As our sample collection constantly varies, the sizes that we stock will vary over time. Bridal sizes tend to be on the small side so don’t be put off if you have to go up a size.
What prices are your dresses?
Our stock is between £500-£2000. The majority of our stock is between £800-£1200.
Are all of your dresses on this website?
Unfortunately we are not authorised to share images of all our dresses due to the designers preference. So the good news there is always more dresses then you see on the website available. If you are looking for a particular dress or style you can always contact us before you book an appointment.
Do I have to book an appointment to try dresses on?
Yes we operate by appointment only 7 days a week, so we may not be there if you are just passing by. Our telephones are always managed so just give us a quick call or book your appointment with our online booking system.
How long is each appointment?
How do the payments work?
When should I start looking for my dress?
How many people can I bring to the appointment with me?
We have a policy of 3 guests maximum due to space. Any additional will be asked to leave unfortunately. We also request that children have a play date whilst your dress shopping as it leads to a distraction.
What should I wear to my appointment?
How do fittings work?
Do you allow photography?
Do you offer storage for dresses?
Unfortunately we cannot offer storage due to a lack of space outside of the boutique shop floor. We hope you understand but your dress will be in a protective bridal bag to keep it safe.
What is your policy on children?
However much we love children we do not allow children into the boutique. From our experience it makes very easy distractions to the appointment, so why not make the most of it and get them looked after and then you can pop across the road to the pub afterwards.
Why is there a charge for weekend appointments?
Unfortunately we implemented an appointment fee due to a influx in no-shows on the weekends which is heatr shattering when there is such a high demand for weekend appointment - when a bride does not attend an appointment without cancelling we have no way of filling that reserved time in our private boutique.
