Our New Normal for Appointments

Keeping you and your bridesmaids safe is our top priority. We want you to be able to enjoy your appointment in a comfortable environment for everyone. We have put in place lots of safety measures and new guidelines for your appointment to keep everybody safe. Here are the details so you know exactly what to expect during your appointment.


Appointment booking:
Book through our website, Facebook or Instagram pages. Feel free to call or message us if you have any questions before you book.

We’re offering extended opening hours too – more evenings and more Sunday appointments! These might not be available on our online system, you will need to get in touch with a request.

Maximum people:
We have 4 large changing rooms and to ensure safe successful social distancing we feel it necessary to limit appointments to 6 people in total. Don’t worry, if you have more than 4 bridesmaids you can bring the others to another appointment with no deposit necessary. Keeping safety for everyone at the forefront of our minds we’re asking that only the bride and bridesmaids attend the appointment, however you are able to bring 1 guest with you as long as the total number of people attending the appointment does not exceed 6.

We will require contact details for everybody who attends the appointment.

Weekend and evening appointments require a £40 deposit for your initial booking. This is fully redeemable against your order. Don’t worry if you’re not ready to make a decision on your first appointment, you can come back as many times as you like for more appointments without paying another deposit.

*No deposit required for week-day bookings between 9am – 4pm*

Before your appointment:
We now offer a virtual consultation prior to your appointment. This will give us chance to chat through your ideas whilst also giving you a feel for the layout of our boutique and enables us to highlight some dresses you might like to try! It means we can have those styles ready for you when you arrive and you can go straight through to fitting!

Just let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll introduce you to the relevant designers and the styles they offer. Key things to have ready to tell us are your colour scheme, any photo inspiration you’ve seen, budget and the styles you and your bridesmaids would prefer!

Prior to your arrival the boutique will have been thoroughly deep cleaned – we are leaving ample time in between appointments to enable this.

During your appointment:
There is plenty of complimentary car parking directly outside the shop, located in a peaceful rural location.

Appointments usually last between an hour and 90 minutes.

We would usually offer to measure your bridesmaids when you’ve found the perfect dress! We’ll discuss this with individual bridesmaids – they might be happier to measure themselves after a quick demo from us, we’re happy to be led by individual preference.

As with everything else, we’ve adapted your payment options! We do have a card payment machine or you can choose to pay by BACS.

After your appointment:
Your dresses will arrive with me between 2-4 months after your order and we will be in touch as soon as they’re here.
