When to purchase your dress

Hints and tips for future brides

Planning to get married during the next year or so? How is the planning going?

Our short tea length wedding dresses and full-length vintage style wedding dresses can take around 6-9 months to arrive from date of order, depending on the designer. Occasionally, the dress will be ready earlier, but you should plan on ordering your dress based on 6-9 months before your wedding date at the very least.

Whether looking for a full length BoHo gown, or coming to us as London’s only specialist short and tea length wedding dress company, now is always a good time to book your first appointment. This gives you time and space to return for a second appointment if required, before you decide on which wedding dress will be the ‘one’. Never forget you should also allow some time for alterations that may be needed since you ordered.

We know some brides like to delay choosing their gown as they plan to lose weight and want to leave measuring to the last minute. It is possible to get some dresses more quickly some of the time (with a rush fee), but if you are thinking this, you should know that most designs can be taken in 2-3 dress sizes on arrival by a skilled seamstress.

Not enough time to order you say. All is not lost. We do keep a selection of dresses in stock that can be purchased off-the-peg and taken on the day, or even ordered online, but you will have more flexibility to have the exact dress you want, in your choice of colour, length and finish, if you allow time to order though.
