Services we offer
Our sole purpose is to ensure that you have an excellent wedding dress shopping experience.
We are devoted to providing you with a first class service tailored to your individuality and your related needs in terms of your bridal gown and/or accessories. Every appointment is exclusive, pleasant, professional and memorable. To ensure that this happens in a consistent way we offer:
Private Bridal Appointments
The Bridal Boutique likes to make every bride that comes into the boutique for a consultation and to find their dream wedding dress special. We make sure your consultation is as enjoyable as we can make it and like to go the extra mile to make this happen. All consultations are private so you get the run of the shop with complimentary drinks where you can try on as many gowns as you wish and not feel rushed
We work on an appointment only basis so we request that you make an appointment to ensure that you can be seen as if there is another bride in the boutique we may not be able to help you.
We can offer late night appointments on request and can also open the days that we usually shut by request as well, namely Sunday and Monday.
We offer an alterations service in house with a professional dress maker who will fit and alter your wedding dress and all of your bridal parties outfits including bridesmaid dresses, mother of the bride outfits etc.
Dry Cleaning Service
We have partnered with a local dry cleaner and can clean and box your wedding dress for you.
Veil Matching Service
If you have purchased your dress elsewhere and want to ensure that your veil completes your bridal look perfectly then please feel free to make an appointment and come in with your wedding dress to ensure that your veil suits perfectly.
Flower Girl and Junior Bridesmaid Dresses.
Let the littlest member/s of your bridal party say Yes to Her Dress. We stock a range of flower girl dresses from newborn to Age 12.
The Bridal Boutique offers ex samples and new gowns for between 25% and 75% off. We have a selection of designers, sizes and styles available that can be bought off the peg and that you can take away on the day. All our sale and off the peg gowns are sold as seen and are non returnable.
Bra Fitting Service and Lingerie Sales
In partnership with a local lingerie company we can offer you, your bridal party and your friends a free bra fitting service. We also have a lovely range of bridal lingerie and shapewear in the boutique at all times but can also order you underwear from a variety of well known companies, active wear and sports wear.
Interest Free Instalment Plans
If you wish to spread the payments of your wedding dress then please get in touch with us. Once a 50% deposit has been paid we can arrange for the balance to be paid up in instalments before the dress arrives.
Tips and questions
We are happy to answer any questions or queries that you may have and we have set out some frequently asked questions below. If you have any further questions please feel free to complete the quick query form below and we’ll be delighted to respond.
Should I book an appointment?
Yes please as we offer you the full use of the boutique so prefer to only deal with one bride at a time to ensure you get our full attention during your appointment.
What are the price range of your gowns?
Our Gowns start at £1000 and work their way upwards. We also have a sale rail of reduced ex sample dresses.
What size gowns do you have available to try on?
Our sample dresses range from a size 12 to a size 20 and your gown can be ordered from Size 4-Size 30 depending on the designer.
How far in advance should I order my wedding dress?
The majority of our designers have a lead time of four to six months and we would advise allowing a month or two for your fittings so in order to be totally wedding ready with no stress we would advise ordering your dress seven to nine months in advance. If you have less time available you can purchase several of our gowns ‘off the peg’ which you can take away on the day.
Who should I bring with me to my appointment?
We would advise brining a few people whose opinions you trust rather than your whole entourage. Sometimes too many conflicting opinions can make you feel overwhelmed so in our experience it is easier to have a few people (no more than three) to help you make your decision and then bring your whole entourage with you to the dress reveal!
What should I wear?
We will help you in and out of the gowns so you are best to wear underwear that your comfortable for a stranger to see you in. Choose whats best for you but often a strapless bra and seamless nude briefs are the best. Please keep make up to a minimum and don’t wear fake tan as it can be hot work and we would like to try and keep our samples as clean as possible for the next bride to try on.
Should I bring anything with me?
An open mind is the best thing to bring with you. Your best to try and pick out some of your favourite gowns from our website or our social media accounts. We like to get to know you during your appointment and once we have seen you in a couple of gowns we will probably suggest others which we think may suit you. Your best to try on a variety of styles even ones that you don’t think will suit you as you will be surprised at what may suit you and you never know you could end up loving a style which you had never even thought of trying on. If you have any shoes or accessories that you would like to wear on your wedding day then please bring this along with you.
How can I cancel my appointment?
Please get in touch with us as far in advance if you would like to cancel or rearrange your appointment either by telephone, email or via Facebook and Instagram.
Can I take photos?
We prefer you and your bridal party not to take photos whilst in The Bridal Boutique. Photos taken in our small boutique with artificial lighting of a dress which doesn’t fit properly can leave you hating yourself in the dress when you actually looked amazing in the gown. We urge you to concentrate on how you feel in the dress and look in the dress on the day and we are always happy to send you the designer images after the appointment should you wish.
