How long before my wedding do I need to book an appointment?

We recommend at least 9-12 months before the wedding to start your shopping but if you have more time,there's no reason why you cannot use it.

Most of our brands eg)Pronovias, St.Patrick take 6 months to order into the store.

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 for a fee. We also have a good range of samples for sale off the rack if you are a last-minute bride. 

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 all love little ones but bridal shopping and children do not work well together. Unfortunately we are unable to accomadate children in our store, this is for your own comfort and of the other customers in store.

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 if you do not wear fake tan, 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.
