Standard appointments. These appoitnments are 1.5hrs and are available Tuesday to Friday between 10am-4pm. However, if you require an appointment outside of these times we will do our very best to accomodate you, simply give us a call to arrange.
Saturday appointments. Our Saturday appointments are again 1.5hrs between the hours of 10am-4pm but do require a £20 holding deposit – fully refunded on attendance.

This charge is to enable us to offer the exclusive, fully personalised bridal experience that we know is so important for a bride to be and also includes a free glass of fizz and nibbles for each of your bridal party.

Bridesmaid Party. These 2hr appointments on either Tuesdays or Thursdays are a wonderful opportunity to bring your maids, try on dresses, investigate new styles and have a party!! The charge for one of these appointments is £20 and includes a glass of fizz and nibbles for each person.
Our current opening hours are Tuesday – Saturday 10am – 4pm. We can also offer later appointments in the evenings, Saturdays and Mondays by prior arrangement. We are a small boutique with limited space which is worth bearing in mind when choosing your who attends your appointment with you. We find by being more selective with your guests gives you a greater experience and saves the wow moment for your wedding day.
To ensure that you get a true vision of each gown you try on we recommend that you wear nude seamless underwear. We also kindly request that make up be applied lightly for your appointment and no fake tan or excessive perfume is worn. This helps us to maintain all of our wedding dresses in exquisite condition, ready for each bride to enjoy.
