If you have found the dress of your dreams with us and become one of our Bridal House Brides then the next step will be to book in your fittings with our fabulous in-house seamstresses Linda and Susan. To book your 1st fitting, Click on the link below and book your 1st fitting 8-10 weeks before your wedding (this is a guide and some fittings may need to be booked closer to your wedding depending on your expected delivery date which will be emailed to you)
What to expect at your first Fitting
You need to book in your three fittings in online using the link above if we do not get dates set in the diary at the time that you ordered your dress.
For your first fitting it is important to bring your actual wedding shoes as we cannot hem your dress to the correct length without them.
Please wear sensible white or tonal underwear especially if you have a very fitted, semi-opaque or sheath dress. Underwear that smooths the silhouette is preferable.
We do not recommend that you wear fake tan before your big day during your fittings.
Please come alone to your first fitting as you dont want anyone seeing your dress ideally until it is fitting you to perfection, once Linda and Susan have worked their magic. (please note that you are welcome to bring 1 person with you if needed.) You are also welcome to bring your children as long as your accompanying adult can look after them for you so that you can relax whilst having your fittings. It makes it a more pleasurable experience.
Work into your schedule at least hour for this appointment.
The aim is to leave the seams open to allow for any minor tweaks to the fitting to ensure that you are completely happy with the fit and dont forget your shoes.
Again you will need an hour but if there is more intricate work to be done on your dress like bespoke bolleros or custom straps or detailing you may need to allow a little longer.
This is the 2nd to last stage of your Bridal House process, the aim is to pop you into your dress which should now fit to perfection and finalise any last teaks.
The last stage is to schedule your dress pick up and collection date which you can now do online using the Book Now button at the top of the page.
We offer a free style consultation service in our catwalk room, where you will get 30mins to choose and try on all headdresses, veils, shoes & jewellery to complete your bridal look. Please book this through the ‘Book Now” button on our website and select free style consultation as there is not time to finalise your accessories during your fittings.
We offer a Bridal & Bridesmaids fixed fee alterations package, where your stunning dresses will be altered on site with our wonderfully skilled in-house Seamstresses Linda & Susan. All fittings will take place in our “Vintage Seamstress Studio” here at the Boutique.
