Bride’s Buying advice

Blue garter

When it comes to shopping for your dress, bring one or two people whose opinion you really value, too many people can make it very confusing as they normally all have different views and this can make it even more difficult to decide.

Wedding gowns can take up to six months to order in store and then there are fitting and alterations to be carried out, so you need to make sure that you allow plenty of time, there's nothing worse than feeling that you are being hurried into making a rush decision.

If you don't have much time until your wedding, don't despair! Some designers will make dresses for a rush fee and we always have some gowns which you can buy from stock. Our quickest bride bought her dress in the morning and wore it in the afternoon!

Things to keep in mind


It's quite often the dress you're not sure about on the hanger, that you love when you try it on.


Your personal consultant will serve you well. They are there to listen to you and their advice is invaluable.


Try to wear the right style and colour underwear, and a good bra can really help.
