Before stepping inside our iconic studio here are some of our hints and tips to consider:
Start your search - Around a year before you tie the knot is the ideal amount of time to find your dream dress and hold your bridal fittings. (But don't worry we can work around tighter schedules).
Your Wedding style - no matter how simple or strong your style of day may be, remember to keep this in mind while finding ‘Your Dress’.
Go ‘Au Natural’ - keep your make-up simple whilst trying on dresses to let your imagination take over. (sometimes we may have to lift the gown over your head when trying different styles on).
Your Look - Hair up, down or flowing with curls for your big day. How you style your look will compliment different neck lines.
Your lingerie - The right underwear makes all the difference - Keep it simple at your visit and we can advise on what is best.
Bridal Shoes - Consider what sort of heel you will want to wear on your day as this will reflect the length we order for you.
Who joins you - Bring guests who’s opinion you value and who can help you decide on your dress - We recommend up to 3 guests to attend your bridal visit.
Bridal fittings - We will provide you with lots of information at your visit including your aftercare plan with our recommended seamstress.
Indulge yourself with our unique 'Meet your Match' experience offered to all Brides-to-be.
