If possible, make your first appointment 8-12 months ahead of the wedding. Most gowns take around around 6 months to be ready and we recommend you aim to have your dress arrive around 2 months before the wedding. You will have a greater choice if you give us lots of time, though some dresses can take just 4 months and rush is possible, this will lessen your choice and limit time for alterations. We keep a good selection of off-the-peg and sample gowns for brides on a shorter time scale.
Saturdays are busiest, so book well in advance if you need to travel. We’re also open on Sunday, if you want to avoid Saturday. We only see one bride per appointment time, so you have our complete attention and assistance. Appointments are also available Wednesday-Fridays.
We do not offer an alteration service but are able to provide details of two independent seamstresses should you need one. Gowns will usually needs some alterations for a perfect fit, allow some budget and time for this.
1950’s retro style tea length wedding dresses come to just above the ankle. Shorter Fifties wedding dresses are also available and most dresses can be made longer or shorter to suit. Coloured petticoats are also available to suit your colour schemes.
