Everything you need to know about wedding dress shopping

When should I shop for my wedding dress?

As our bridal gowns are all lovingly made to order in Barcelona, they take up to 6 months to arrive! Ideally you need to have your luxury bridal dress ordered around 10 months before your wedding date.

Try to start looking 12-18 months before the big day (if you can) as this will allow enough time for your alterations and you may want the dress to organise the rest of your wedding... sometimes the dress determines the theme!

How much should I budget for my wedding dress?

Our made to order designer bridal dresses range from £1500 up to £3000. 

Our outlet section with dresses ready to take away the same day range from £500 - £1500
A deposit is required to place your order of 50%. 
We hold special events called 'Trunk Shows' 2 times a year. These are run over a weekend and is a great way to try on dresses that we wouldn't normally stock. We get limited designer dresses in for one weekend only and offer 10% off all dresses during the event. Trunk shows get booked up fast so if you wish to be notified let us know by subscribing on our website.

 If you fall in love with a dress from our bridal outlet, full payment is required on the day of purchase and you'll need to take your dress home with you.

How much should I allow for my alterations?

Most dresses will need to be altered by a seamstress. It is important that your beautiful bridal dress fits you like a glove on your wedding day. We have a seamstress who works along side us or you are welcome to source one yourself. 
We normally suggest to budget a seperate £400 for alterations as this will allow for any major changes. Bridal dresses are made for 5ft10 and can be taken down by 2 dress sizes.
