FAQ

First of all, a little reassurance!

Looking for the dress you wear on your wedding day should be looked back upon with true delight and the happiest of memories and therefore, our aim is to make your visit to Bridal Boutique wonderfully special. From the moment you step into Bridal Boutique you will be made to feel welcome, at home and relaxed.

Some brides have mentioned that before coming to Bridal Boutique, they have found visiting bridal boutiques a little daunting so let us from this moment dispel any of your worries and instead replace them with feelings of excited anticipation! With this purpose in mind, here are some of your queries answered and if you have any more, please don’t hesitate to give us a call!

Can I come in just to look at your accessories?

Even if you have bought your dress elsewhere, you are more than welcome to come along and look at our accessories.

What happens at my appointment?

During your appointment, you will receive a one-to-one personalised consultation with one of our highly trained bridal consultants and you will have our undivided attention in helping you to find your perfect dress. Once we have found out a little bit about you and your wedding style, the fun really starts as you have a look through all of our dresses and choose which ones you would like to try on. You will then be shown to your very own private fitting room in which to try on our beautiful gowns and then the curtain will be swished back for us to reveal you as a beautiful bride to your family and friends. Once you have found the dress of your dreams, we can help you complete the look to perfection with our stunning collections of veils and wedding hair accessories!

What happens with regard to fittings and alterations?

Bridal Boutique is very fortunate to have 2 experienced and qualified seamstresses on board, so all fittings and alterations can be done in-house. Fittings are usually done on a Sunday about 2 months before your wedding . All alterations are quoted for before any alterations are pinned and if you have your own seamstress you would like to do the work you are very welcome to take your dress to them.

What is the price range of your dresses?

Bridal Boutique was designed over 10 years ago with the promise to offer multi award winning designer dresses at affordable prices. To this day we still work to this promise. We stock varied designer dresses at differing price points to ensure a beautiful choice of bridal gowns for every bride and budget.

When should I make an appointment and how long do the appointments last?

We allow one and a half hours for all first appointments with us. This gives us plenty of time to get to know you and to find out all about your wedding. It also allows lots of time for you to try on our beautiful dresses! Saturday appointments are so popular with our brides that we recommend you book your appointment as far in advance as possible. If weekdays and Saturdays are difficult for you, we are able to offer late night appointments on request. Our job is to make you look and feel like the bride you’ve always dreamed of. We therefore, want to devote as much time to you as you need so please feel that you can come back and visit us again for a second or even third appointment – we shall make it feel just as special as the first!

When should I start looking?

Some of our brides find their dream dress with us straight away and do not wish to look anywhere else. Others like to visit a few other boutiques and therefore, more time is needed in the decision-making process. Consequently, you may wish to bear in mind that ideally you should aim to be ordering your dress 7-9 months prior to the date of your wedding. This takes into account the time it takes for your dress to be made to order and then, if necessary, any alterations to be made. However, if you are on a tight timescale, please do still come and see us as we have been known to work miracles and have sample dresses which can be bought off-the-peg and adjusted to fit you to perfection!

Where is the best place to park?

Many of our brides choose to park in the multi-storey complex, which has a walkway to directly opposite our shop front!

Who should I bring with me?

We do understand this is not only an important occasion for you but also for your nearest and dearest. However, our boutique is rather intimate and seating space for guests is limited. Therefore we recommend that you bring no more than 2-3 guests with you. It will also make for a far more enjoyable experience for you as too many loved ones all giving their opinions can be unhelpful and rather confusing! Do remember, it is your opinion which is the one that truly counts so it is important that you don’t feel confused or distracted from your mission to find the perfect dress! This brings us on to little ones. Whilst all of us here genuinely adore children it really will be easier for you to relax and enjoy finding your dream dress if you don’t have the concern of little ones outside your changing area. Think of it as a bit of much-needed and deserved “me” time where you are the one being looked after! However, should you need to bring your children with you, we do understand and just request you ensure that you have someone with you to look after them. After all, we want to devote our entire attention to looking after you and finding you your perfect dress!
