Buying Your Dress

Our prices range from £397 to £3,500. For made to order dresses; most can be ordered in sizes 0-36.


Some of our designers take up to 6 months to get a dress made and delivered although some hold stock which means we can get some dresses at short notice. Our only mission is to find you a wedding dress that's right for you, at the right price and that will deliver at the right time.

We also have some fabulous wedding dresses available to buy off the peg, many at discounted prices and great if you are a bride with not much time.  For these dresses full payment is required.

For dresses that are ordered, we’ll require 50% of the total price upfront. The remainder will then be due once your dress is delivered to us. Once we have checked your dress, we will arrange a pre-fit with you to try on and check your wedding dress, settle your balance and then the dress is all yours!

If you prefer you have the option for us to store and insure your dress until your fittings. There is a £10 monthly or part month fee for this service. Should you not wish to pay for storage, that's fine too, we will pack your dress up for you to take it away. If you require our alterations service then please just bring your dress back with you for your first fitting. 

If you’ve ordered bridesmaids with us, we'll let you know as soon as they arrive, and you can either arrange a convenient time for you to collect them so  they can be tried on at home or try them on here in store. Please bear in mind that you must inform us immediately if anything does not fit as expected as there is always a limited window of opportunity to resolve any issues.
