When should I start looking for an outfit ?
We only ever order ONE of each size in any particular style and not all styles are ordered in every size .
Once we have sold out of a size in a particular style we can’t then reorder.
Don’t delay and lose out on your perfect outfit by leaving it too late !!
Please don’t think that you have to lose weight before you visit us – we carry around 1000 outfits, dresses and floaty trouser suits in sizes 8-38 for all seasons all year round along with around 400 matching hats and fascinators.
Outfits usually need some form of minor alteration due to the European sizing and they can usually be taken down by up to three dress sizes , should your body change shape before the wedding.
We’ve also got dresses suitable for wedding guest and ladies day at the races or even if you want something a little less formal .
Do I have to make an appointment ?
The short answer is Yes!
Our peak time is between January and September when we are extremely busy particularly at weekends so it it is strongly advisable to get your appointment booked in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Please be aware we cannot accommodate walk ins for browsing. We provide a personal one to one fitting service and we pride ourselves on selecting the perfect outfit for you for your occasion- in nearly every case our selection is not the customers original choice .
In fact our customers tell us time and time again that they would never have even considered their final choice from looking at it on the hanger. It is highly unlikely that you will “know it when you see it” just from your own browsing of our ranges which is why we work by appointment only to give you the benefit of our extensive experience in helping you look and feel amazing!
Appointments are available Mondays to Saturday at 9am,10.30am, 12pm, 2pm and 3.30pm only.
We are always closed on Bank Holidays
You can bring up to 2 adult guests with you to your appointment during off peak times of the year (October – December ). From January to September we operate two fitting rooms at the same time so we are only able to accomodate 1 adult guest with you.
Unfortunately we cannot accommodate any children or babies in the shop due to our insurance.
At the moment we can only accomodate both mums in consecutive appointments one after the other .There will be no one else in the shop at the same time.
How long does an appointment last?
We will always ask you to view our videos before your visit so that you can get an idea of styles/colours etc and it also helps us select some outfits for you to start with.
We won’t accessorise every outfit you try on – rather we will wait till near the end of the appointment when you have narrowed your choice down to the final one or two .The final choices will be fully accessorised with hat/fascinator/shoes and bag.
There is more than enough time to accessorise during your 1.5 hour appointment – there’s no need to book a separate hat/fascinator appointment.
If you’ve already bought your mother of the bride or groom dress , we offer stand alone accessory appointments at 9am or 9.45 am only on Mondays to Saturdays which will last for up to 45 minutes. Please bring your dress with you so we can match up the colours from our vast selection of around 400 different wedding hats and fascinators.
Please note we do not offer hat/accessory appointments at any other times unless we have had a last minute cancellation . Our website is unable to allow correct booking time for hat /accessory appointments so please call us on 01905 622233 if you want to book an accessory appointment at another time and we will try to fit you in if we can.
What are the appointment times?
Our appointment times are now 9am, 10.30am, 12pm,2pm and 3.30pm only .
Appointments are available Monday to Saturday except bank holidays .
How many people can I bring with me ?
During off peak months (October – December) , you can bring up to two adult guests with you .
During peak months (January-September), you can only bring one adult guest with you .
This is because we usually have two customers having their appointment at the same time on those days so we don’t have enough room in the changing area to accommodate extra guests.
In order to avoid two trips to the shop (and potential disappointment if the outfit sells), we would strongly recommend you arrange your appointment at a time when you can bring the person whose opinion would matter enough to change your mind about the outfit e.g. if it is important the bride or your partner sees your outfit before purchase , it would be advisable to make an appointment when they can accompany you.
Our appointments are always in high demand so we are unlikely to be able to offer you a further appointment for several weeks if you would need someone else to see the outfit before purchase. This is why we recommend scheduling your appointment when your special guest can come with you and give you their opinion as we cannot hold outfits and only have one of every size of any particular style .

We also have around 400 matching hats and fascinators.
Do I need to bring anything with me or wear anything specific when I come for my appointment ?
We advise you wear or bring with you the underwear you may wear on the day. Sometimes ladies feel more comfortable in shapewear if the dress is particularly fitted and a strapless bra can be useful if the dress is off the shoulder or has a sheer neckline.
The right underwear can really make the difference to how a dress fits .We often recommend a local specialist bra fitter who will help you find the right under garments.
We do have shoes available to try on however if you have a particularly wide /narrow foot or you are less than size 3 or bigger than size 8, we would advise you bring a pair of neutral shoes or shoes of the heel height that you would normally wear.
