We've put together seven steps to help anyone looking for their special dress for their big day - and what to expect if you're booking an appointment to come to see us.
getting to know you
We have over ten years experience in luxury bridal and we want to ensure you feel amazing on your big day. Our exclusive bridal showroom is open by appointment, DM us, email us, call us and we’ll book you in straight away. When you arrive for your appointment, we’ll take you up the stairs to our first floor bridal boudoir, where we have a beautiful space for up to three guests, whose advice and support you really trust. We’ll find out about your wedding, your style, and what dresses you’ve tried on.
try on our dresses
Try on as many dresses in the privacy of our bridal boudoir during with helpful suggestions from myself and team. In each dress, try to imagine yourself at the venue on the big day, if you can see yourself saying ‘I do’, it could be ‘the one’. It’s a little bit like finding the right man, its got to instinctively feel right and feel like you. I like to meet all my brides personally, and if I’m not available one of my expert team will be on hand.
think about how to style your bridal look
Experiment with different looks with headpieces from Victoria Fergusson with one of our soft tulle veils beaded belts and silky sashes and a pair of luxury Freya Rose heels. We have a selection of lace and tulle toppers and over-dresses that can transform the bridal look too. The wedding day can be a long day, why not go from looking demure in the day to uber-sexy for the evening simply by changing a few separates and accessories. What’s not to love?
Try on the best dress on again
Once you’ve tried on a few dresses, we encourage you to try on the dress that felt the best again. As you wear the dress for a second time, see if you can imagine naturally styling the dress as you say ‘I do’ at the venue. If you can, and you’re smiling and you’re standing nice and tall, it could most definitely be ‘the one’...
say yes to the dress
Say yes to the dress and we’ll confirm your order with a 50% deposit. We’ve just partnered with a reputable alterations company in Islington just round the corner who have over 20 years experience with luxury wedding dresses to take care of all your fittings and alterations. We’ll also share our ultimate list of top tips for the best underwear recommended by our own brides and share our little black book of amazing wedding suppliers to help you plan the rest of your wedding.
the finishing touches
Your dress will be ready within four months, unless you’d like to have your fittings closer to your wedding if you’re planning on losing weight. For the first fitting, make sure you have two options of underwear for top and bottoms ready to try them with your dress, and the shoes that you’ll be wearing, and your headpieces. It’s a good idea to experiment with different styling and accessory ideas to see how the whole bridal look comes together.
Enjoy your special day feeling awesome.... and remember to send us a pic, we'd love to feature you on our real brides page on our website.
Good luck with wedding dress hunting!
