Helping to put your mind at ease and providing you with a confident start to your planning, we’ve put together some of our top FAQs.

Of course, if we’ve missed anything or if you would like to ask a question in person, please contact us, we’re only too happy to help.

We ask that you do. Our busy boutique is small but perfectly formed, so we can only host one bridal appointment at a time. We want to be totally prepared for you and your girls.
As with most luxury designer boutiques we charge a small consultation fee of £25. This is only for our busy weekend appointments and is fully refunded against your dress. Weekday appointments are not chargeable.
As our boutique is bijoux and your experience personal, we recommend no more than two to three guests, too many opinions can be confusing.

Our store samples are a variety of sizes, from a UK10 to UK18. Our beautiful capsule curve collection has been designed to celebrate your shape to ensure every bride has the perfect gown for her wedding day.

Our bridal stylists are fully trained to pin you in our sample gowns if they are too big. If the sample gown is on the small side, we will discretely adjust around the back to make them look like they fit.
Our collection starts around £1200 and goes up to about £3000. Our bridal gown prices are transparent, and we ask you to guide us with regards to your dress budget. We want you to be completely happy with your wedding dress choice.

We have a gorgeous selection of ex-sample gowns from £450 to £1500. These dresses are the perfect choice for a bride on a tighter budget or needing a gown with a shorter lead time.
When you place your bridal order, our stylists will measure you. We will then discuss with you your perfect size.
If you make us aware of any weight loss plans you may have, we will organise for you a re-measuring appointment 6 months before your wedding date.
If you would like to use our in-house seamstress and fitting service, we recommend starting your bridal gown fittings 8 – 12 weeks before your big day. We will contact you in advance to book the necessary appointments.

You may require between 1 – 3 fittings and the cost of these will depend on what needs doing to make your gown the perfect fit.
If you do decide to use our in-house fitting service, we have a highly skilled team of seamstresses who will guide you through the gown fitting process. Our bridal stylists are always on hand for any styling advice or assistance.
Always bring your wedding shoes and bra if you are wearing one to all your fittings. We ask you to keep your guests to these appointments to a minimum, your seamstress will need to concentrate on the intricate job of pinning your gown for the perfect fit.

Please do not wear any makeup, deodorant, body lotion or false tan that can transfer on to your precious gown to your fitting or styling appointments.
We will happily store your bridal gown up until your wedding day. We will make you a bridal gown collection appointment usually the week leading up to your big day when it has been steamed and prepped.

We also sell travel size bridal boxes perfect for you to take abroad or store your gown in after the wedding day.
We offer an in-house bridal gown cleaning and boxing service which is perfect for preserving your precious dress, just ask one of our bridal stylists for further details.
