Getting married in 2021, or are you a last minute bride this year? Then you need to read this...


A 2021 Bride.

It is common today that bridal retailers, like ourselves only carry sample dresses allowing you to choose your dress, which then needs to be ordered to be made from the dress' designers. From order date to being ready can be as much as 6 months!

*80% of  brides asked didn't know this.*

So if you are getting from March 2021 on you really should be in a position to order your dress now. If you are getting married before that then all is not lost, see below.

We have lots of useful information for brides to be on our Resources for You page on our web site, including a handy little tool that you can enter your wedding date into, and it will tell you ideally when you should be looking for that dress you have always wanted, and when you need to be placing your order to have it made in time.

We also have advice on how to get the best from your appointments when looking for your dress.

Appointments Update - our new appointment schedule and Covid-19 safety

Why not try the Sally wedding dress at your appointment

We've been running appointments now for the last three weeks, and the feedback we've received from the brides that have come in is that they feel secure and are happy with the procedures we have in place for their safety and ours.

Our current appointment schedule allows us ensure that our studio, dresses, furniture and anything handled is sanitised between appointments., and we are using the latest UVC light cleaning procedures that are used in hospital operating theatres. As such, we ask that brides do not arrive early for their appointment. When the sanitising is in progress, not even our staff are allowed in our studio during this cleansing Once complete there is no effect on anyone entering the studio. However, we do ask you to use sanitiser on entry and to wear a mask covering mouth and nose.

As well as feeling safe with us, the brides-to-be have nearly all complimented us on the fact that we are not pushing  a sale with them. We know that for many, a wedding dress is a big expenditure so you need to feel totally comfortable that the dress is for you before purchasing. The only thing we push is that dresses can take 5-6 months to be with us from the designers once ordered, so time should be considered a major driver in your decision making. 

If your wedding is within six months we always have a selection of dresses available for immediate purchase also.
