Do I need to book an appointment?

It is best to book an appointment as we do get quite busy, however if you would like to call in, you can have a look around and if we have a changing room free you can try dresses on.
With an appointment you will have your own private dressing room with one to one time with a wedding dress stylist.

How long will the appointment take?

We usually allow 1.5 hours per wedding dress appointment, and between 30minutes to one hour for bridesmaids depending on how many bridesmaids you have.

What price are your wedding dresses and how do I make payment?

Our gowns range from £800 to £1500, we require half deposit for a dress to be placed on order and payment plans can be arranged to suit your budget as we understand that weddings can be expensive.

Do you sell bridesmaid dresses?

Yes, All of our bridesmaid dresses come in 100s of colours and materials, they range from £99 to £250.
Flower girls dresses start from 2 years old up to age 10.
We also have Teens dresses from age 8-16.
Adult’s dresses start from size 2 to 30.

Can I bring people with me to my appointment?

We recommend you come with your nearest & dearest  (maximum of 3 guests),   so you can focus on yourself and you are not too confused with lots of opinions! If you would like to bring more people with you, we would love to book you in for our  VIP service so that you can have the boutique to yourself.

We also find that little people and pretty dresses generally don’t mix well, so if you do have young children why not utilise one of your bridesmaids and ask them to stay at home and babysit for you!?

How long does it take to order a dress?

Most of our dresses are delivered between 3- 6 months as they are all made to order.

Don’t panic if you have less time than this. Some manufacturers carry stock of certain dresses or we can arrange a ‘rush cut’ in 8-10 weeks. It’s not ideal as it can limit your choice and incur additional cost but it’s often possible so always call us to discuss your requirements.

Alternatively you can book an appointment at our sister shop Sassi Bride situated in Chesterfield, where we sell dresses straight off the peg so you can walk out the boutique with your dress on the day you find ‘the one’.

If you have more time than this – great. Come in and see us as once you have found the dress, we’ll confirm the dress and delay delivery and production until we need.

Do you sell veils and accessories?

We have a wide range of bridal accessories, from veils, tiaras, head bands, capes and belts, unfortunately we no longer stock bridal shoes.

Can you store my dress when it arrives?

We only have limited storage space so where possible we ask brides to collect their gown, especially if the wedding is not for some time.

What if I’m planning to lose weight?

We will deal with each customer on a individual basis, and work around your goals. It is easier to take a dress in 1-2 sizes but letting them out is a little harder so we need to get it right for you.

What size dresses do you stock?

We have 100s of dresses at the boutique, ranging from size 8 to 20 as our samples, all dresses can be ordered in any size from 2-30.

Will you steam my wedding dress?

We do offer a steaming service charged at £25 per wedding dress and £10 per bridesmaid if the dresses are bought from us, please call for a quote if it isn’t a dress purchased from our store.

Will my dress be made to measure?

All dresses are made to each suppliers unique size chart. By taking your measurements we will work out the size of your dress to the closest fit possible. Not all of the gowns will fit perfectly so some will need minor alterations to make them a perfect fit.

Do you offer a wedding dress pack & box service?

We do offer a £25 boxing and packing service, the boxes are suitable for traveling abroad and fit in with airline standards and are great for storage. For more info please contact us.
