When Should I Shop For My Dress?
Most of our brides order their dress with us around 12 months before the big day. Call us to discuss your timings – we will be happy to advise and work round your dates if possible.
My Appointment – What Can I Expect?
Congratulations! So, you have the ring on your finger and you have set your date and chosen a venue. Now it’s time for the really fun part of your wedding planning – finding THE DRESS! Dress Me Pretty will offer you an experience like no other – starting with a free telephone consultation – with our expert team offering advice and styling every step of the way. We understand that this is the biggest clothing purchase you are ever likely to make. We have all the patience in the world and we are confident that you will find your ‘one’ with us! We are frequently told by brides that we make the process easy, fun and memorable, which makes us very happy!
How Long Will My Appointment Last?
Our bridal appointments last around an hour. It is very normal to find your dress in your first Dress Me Pretty appointment.
How Do I Find the Dress?
At Dress Me Pretty, we tailor appointments to you, listening to what you want the whole time. Our highly trained team will guide you through your appointment, including helping you in and out of the dresses in our luxurious fitting rooms. We can normally tell what sort of dress will suit you best as soon as you step through the door, but we like to work with you and accommodate your ideas to make sure that you feel incredible! Nothing phases us at Dress Me Pretty and we love nothing more than the ‘that’s the one’ tears that invariably happen when you find your dream dress – you won’t want to take it off, and that’s how we know!
What Underwear Should I wear
Lightly coloured or nude underwear is best, and a strapless bra if you have one, but don’t worry too much. Remember that between dresses you will (excuse the pun) briefly be in just your underwear, so wear knickers that you feel totally comfortable in. We have shoes in the boutique for you to borrow, but please do bring your own with you if you wear them regularly and plan to wear them on the day, just to give you the same posture. And you should wear your hair up if that’s what you plan, too.
What About Fake Tan
We ask that you don’t use fake tan or heavy scents before trying our gowns on. We take pride in keeping them in great condition for each bride that comes through our doors.
How Much Are Your Dresses?
We like to stock a wide range of dresses for a wide range of budgets, and have carefully selected our gowns so that there is something for everyone. Generally they start at around £950 and go up to £3,200. We only work with top designers, so that we know you will get quality, and value, for your money. From time to time we have sample sales, where you can pick up a reduced-price dress. Follow us on Facebook to receive dates and updates.
Can I Bring My Family and Friends To My Appointment?
We limit the number of guests that you bring along with you, to ensure that you get the best service and experience. You can bring up to three people with you, but in our experience, any more than that can make the experience less enjoyable and leave you confused as people tend to have strong and opposing opinions on what you try on. That said, if you really can’t narrow it down to three, you can book one of our exclusive ‘pretty special’ appointments. There is a charge for these, but it is redeemable against the purchase of your dress.
When Will I Have To Pay For The Dress?
When you find ‘the one’, we will ask that you pay a 50% deposit. The balance will be due when your dress arrives into Dress Me Pretty. If you buy a dress in one of our sample sales, we will need full and final payment from you, and for you to take it with you there and then. Bridesmaid dresses and accessories are paid for in full at the time of ordering.
How Long Will My Dress Take To Arrive After Ordering It?
This really depends on which designer collection your dress is from, but we normally say to allow four to nine months.
When Will I Be Able To Have My Dress Fitted And Altered
We recommend that alterations are made six to eight weeks before your big day. These are not included in the price of the dress but we have a seamstress we can suggest to you.
I’m A Curvy Girl. Will There Be Anything For Me To Try On?
Our dress samples range between a size 10 and 24. Dresses can usually be ordered up to a size 32.
When Should I Start Trying On Dresses?
Most of our brides find their dress in their first appointment with us. We suggest coming to us when you are ready to find ‘the one’.
I’m Getting Married Abroad. Do You Have Dresses Suitable For Me To Try On?
Lots of our brides get married abroad and we have lots of suitable dresses.
