How long before my wedding do I book an appointment?

We recommend at least 10 months before your wedding date. Bridal design houses can take 6 months or more,for us to receive delivery of your gown .

If you are having an in-house kathy de Stafford design then we advise 10 months or longer as our production team gets booked up very quickly.

What if I don't have 10 months to the wedding?

No problem, some of the design houses have a rush order service. We also have a good range of samples for sale off the rack.

How many people can I bring to my appointment?

It is good to have two or three friends or family members whose opinion you trust and value. We would not recommend bringing children to your appointment, we want our brides to be able to relax and enjoy their experience in store with us.

How do I prepare for my appointment?

If possible wear skin coloured seamfree underwear or shapewear that you are comfortable in.

A nude strapless bra is always good to have as you will be trying alot of different necklines in your appointment.

We would really appreciate it if you do not wear fake tan or a lot of makeup as we try to keep our dresses in excellent condition for you to try on.

Have an open mind when in our boutiques, try lots of different looks and styles.

What can I expect from my appointment?

Now for the fun part! Your appointment lasts an hour and we really want you to relax, enjoy yourself and find the dress of your dreams. We like to spoil you with bubbles and chocolates too. 

Our expert bridal consultants will go through our beautiful range of dresses with you and advise you on styles/fabics to suit you.  We then give you tags to choose the designs you like (usually 5/6 in an hour). We like to pick out a wild card design to put into the mix too.
