Bridal FAQ's

What happens in a fitting?


The first fitting is about us getting to know you and your dress. It’s an opportunity to discuss the amendments required to your gown to get it fitting beautifully and comfortability. You will need to try on your dress in our fitting room so that it can be pinned to your figure and height. This is the perfect time to make any other changes such as adding or removing any elements. Don’t be afraid to share your ideas with us as we will be able to advise you further and offer suggestions that you may not have thought of. 

During your final fitting we check that everything fits you like a dream and that you are happy with the work carried out by us. The second fitting normally takes place 1-2 weeks before your big day. This allows us time should we need it to make any final adjustments


How many fittings will I need?


2 Fittings are normal, but there may be occasions when 3 fittings are required. We include 2 x 30 minute appointments when you come to us. After this, appointment time is charged at £20 per hour.


Who can I bring with me to my fitting?


We encourage you to bring someone along with you to share your experience. There is enough room for 2 friends or family members to watch the fitting process. Children are welcome, but we would advise that an adult is present to supervise them. We want all of the focus to be on you. 

How much will my alterations cost?


Expect to pay between £100 to £400 for bridal alterations. We take a £60 - £100 deposit upfront before we begin work on your gown. This is deductible from your final bill. The outstanding balance will be due at your final fitting. We can offer a payment plan if this helps to make it easier for you. This can be agreed before we commence work. 


What should I wear to a fitting?


We may need to take your body measurements during your consultation so please wear clothes that allow accurate measurements to be taken. Loose and baggy clothing is not suitable as it will add inches and will distort your body shape. 

Please also bring your shoes, underwear, petticoat (if you are wearing one) and a hair tie / clip.


When should I book in for alterations?


As soon as you have your dress, we recommend booking in for a fitting and getting the process started. Depending on how busy we are, our lead times for bridal alterations will change. We always suggest getting in touch at least 6-10 weeks before the big day. If you’re in need of last minute alterations, get in touch on 01432 632280 and we will see what we can do to help.

Dressing Service

Take the stress out of getting yourself and bridesmaid ready by booking our Dressing Service for the morning of your wedding. Some dresses can be tricky, requiring more time and skill to ensure the lacing is done correctly. Take the pressure off your bridesmaids or mum, who has never laced up your dress before. In addition to making sure you are comfortable and properly dressed, Jackie will be on hand to help bridesmaids & flower girls get dressed, pin any buttonholes, help put on shoes and to make sure nothing is forgotten!
