I would personally recommend 12-18 months prior to your big day! BUT it is never too early to start shopping if its right for you. We have some of the worlds leading bridal designers and we can order all gowns to arrive within a 6-10 month period, you should allow a further 8-12 weeks for alterations.

Don’t panic if you have less than 6 months as we may be able to get certain designers and styles in much quicker for an additional cost and some designers keep dresses in production.

Absolutely. We would prefer you to book an appointment where possible as this allows us to dedicate our full attention to you – no disruptions! We are open to customers being able to walk in on weekdays, however unfortunately if we are with a bride we will not be able to assist you – all our brides get 100% of our attention. 

Also, if you require a late evening appointment which is out of hours, please get in touch and we will try and make this happen for you.

When you arrive we’ll get you settled and have a chat about your ideas for your wedding day style. Following this you’ll then have time with your guests to browse through all of the gowns and select the ones you would like to try on. 

We normally say to select around 4/5 dresses at the start of your appointment and then once we have a better understanding of what you are/not liking we will select some gowns that we think you will love! …These wild cards are normally the dresses you end up going for! Don’t forget we see lots of brides in dresses every day, and know what will suit your figure best. The dresses always look different on hangers. They also look very different on models you see online so be open minded and you will find the most perfect dress for you.

If you find your dream dress with us we will guide you to our stunning veils and accessories where you will also be able to book a follow up appointment.

Ideally a maximum of 3. Always bring the people you need with you to help you choose your dress. Think carefully about rearranging should one not be there. Trying on the one for the first time, is a wonderful experience and a moment that cannot be replicated again. If you feel you need more than the suggested number please contact us to confirm so that we can try and accommodate everyone.

Most of our gowns in the boutique are sized between UK 8 – UK 20 and varies with each designer. We can order most dresses from UK size 4-34 depending on the style and designer. We are trained to fit samples, if they are too big they will be pinned, if they are too small then we have discreet ways of fastening the dresses to make them fit.

If you find your dream dress with us we order the size that is closest to your measurements.

We do have a small selection of dresses in sizes 10-20 in our Ready to Wear section. 

We always advise to wear a pair of seam free knickers in a colour as close to your skin tone as possible. Spanx are welcome if you wish to wear them. Bring a strapless bra if you have one but most dresses have bust support so you may not need to wear one. 

We have some beautiful Kurt Geiger shoes in the boutique to try with your dresses, however if you already have your wedding shoes then please bring them along…. we love a good pair of heels!

We have a local recommended seamstress who does all of our alterations. If you are a bride who is travelling to visit us then we can recommend other seamstresses closer to your location. 

Alterations costs are not included in the price of your wedding dress and will vary depending on the dress. 

Please note, we are not in contractual agreements with any recommended seamstresses.

Our made to order dresses start from approximately £1100 – £3000, the majority of dresses are between £1500 – £2500.

We have a small selection of dresses in our ready to wear section which are all under £2000 and available to take home the same day! 

Congratulations! You’re now a Lotte Rose Bride!

We will require a 50% initial payment upon order placing and the remaining 50% will be due when your dress arrives at the boutique – usually 6-10 months later depending on the designer. We do offer payment plans as well so please speak to us to see how we can help. 

For all dresses purchased from our ready to wear range we will require 100% payment on the day of purchase.

We accept all major credit and debit cards. Unfortunately we cannot process cheques or American Express. 

When your dress arrives you will be able to come in for a pre fitting where you can try on different accessories and fall in love with your dress all over again. We can store your dress free of charge until you begin alterations or you can take home with you. 

Your alterations will begin 2-3 months in advance of your wedding.
