Update August 2021
Changes due to the current Health Situation
Consultations are available by appointment only and need to be pre-booked in advance via email – email@example.com
Face masks are still compulsory for the safety of our clients and staff. Fitting appointments are in an enclosed space and can take up to two hours.
We still ask our clients to limit the number of family and friends they bring to their fitting appointment to a maximum of two. Please email in advance.
How long will my dress take?
We advise leaving about three months between your first fitting and your big day or the date you need to collect your dress. We also offer a faster alteration service if needed and depending on the time of year (our busiest months are April, May, June, and July), this service is chargeable with a 25% express fee.
How many fittings will I need?
We will always make sure you are completely happy with your dress. During your first fitting, we will schedule your collection appointment, which will allow enough time for a further fitting if needed. Bridal alterations often need 2 fittings and just make sure your dress will be perfect.
How do you work out costs?
We price our services – fitting, alteration, and tailoring at £60 per hour. The amount we charge directly relates to how long it takes to complete your dress.
Do I pay fitting fees?
We charge a £60 fitting in addition to alterations and any material costs. We suggest booking a one-hour-fitting appointment, but if your consultation and dress-pinning only take half an hour, we’ll only charge £30. Fitting appointments are a great opportunity to discuss the fit of your dress but also how you manage your wedding dress on the day e.g. For the evening we can apply a bustle or a hand loop to make dancing possible.
What should I bring with me to the fitting?
Bring the undergarments and shoes you are planning to wear on your wedding day. Even a different pair of shoes with the same heel height may change your hemline! If you have any queries in regards to your undergarment depending on the type of your dress, please discuss this in your fitting appointment.
How far in advance do I need to book?
During our busiest time of year (between May and July), weekends and Wednesday evening appointments are very popular. We advise booking up to four weeks in advance to secure your slot.
Your Bridal Party and alteration discounts
All members of the bridal family – groom, mother-of-bride or groom, father-of-bride or groom, and bridesmaids are entitled to a free fitting consultation and often generous discounts if they need their festive outfits perfectly fitted and altered for the wedding day.
