Fitting

Wedding Gown Fitting

You may have brought your dream dress that just requires that final tweek to make it perfect! You may need the gown taken up an inch, taken in or let out around the hips or bust, an extra layer of netting, or some final bead-work?. You will be confident that you will look fabulous on your wedding day because your dress will have been fitted at regular intervals, with the final fitting just before your big day.

We appreciate you will have lots to prepare for the big day, so to help we are happy to make late appointments on a Tuesday up to 7pm, and all day Saturday.

First fittings need to be carried out at least 6 weeks before your wedding date, although we are usually able to accommodate ‘last minute’ fittings if required. Saturday appointments are extremely popular, so should be booked well in advance to avoid disappointment.
