What happens if they don’t fit me?

We are fully trained to fit the samples so you can see a good fit in front of the mirror. (We have magical clips and panels to help us get the dress fitted to your body shape.)

How do I know what size I will need?

We take your full body measurements. This would be your bust, waist and hips then from these measurements we would advise you on the best size to order for you.

What happens if I want to lose weight?

This question is asked many times and is not a problem with our seamstresses, they can magically alter the dress and take in up to 2/3 dress sizes and make if fit to your body perfectly. It’s easier to take in than it is to let out!

Once you have found your beautiful dress we will take your measurements. To order the dress for you we take a 50% deposit. The remaining balance will be due on the arrival of your beautiful dress.

Our dresses take around 4 to 6 months to arrive however some dresses are available on a rush order.

Normally your Fittings / Alterations would start 6 to 8 weeks before your wedding date. We have local recommended seamstresses that you can choose from. Once you have made contact with your chosen seamstress they will look after and guide you right up to your wedding day.

You would normally only need 2 fittings and the cost of these will depend on how much work needs to be carried out to make your dress fit perfectly.

What happens if we have to postpone?

If you choose to or you have to postpone your wedding date, we will be here for you whenever you are ready for your wedding day.
