I would personally recommend 12-15 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 month period, we allow a further 8 weeks for alterations.
Don’t panic if you have less than 6 months as we are able to get certain designers and styles in much quicker but we’d rather you spend those £’s on your honeymoon!
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 bride babes get 100% of our attention. Booking is essential for weekend appointments as it gets super busy.
Also, if you require a late evening or Sunday 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, we’ll give you a brief tour through the collections we have. Following this you’ll then have time with your nearest and dearest to browse through all of the gowns and select the ones you would like to try on. Yay!
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 on girls 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.
Absolutely! If you’d love to chat to us before you come in for an appointment we can set up a virtual consultation via Skype. We can discuss our collection, shapes, necklines, answer anything you need us to and just have a nice relaxed chat. We’ll pop the kettle on our end and you do the same, no time limit, no pressure, just 2 babes having a chat.
We offer appointments in our two gorgeous bridal suites. As much as we love a girlie gathering, too many opinions can become a little overwhelming for the bride. Bring your dearest and nearest special babes who you love and trust! We advise bringing along a maximum of 3 people (this also fits the bridal suites comfortably!)
If you do have a larger bride tribe to bring along please give us a call to discuss so we can arrange a time for you to visi
Most of our gowns in the boutique are sized between UK 8 – UK 20 and varies with each designer. We can order most designers 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 outlet ‘off the peg area’. Because these are available to take home the same day we can save you ££’s…. more money for that honeymoon!
We always advise to wear a pair of seam free knickers if possible and nude strapless bra. Don’t panic if you don’t have either as with most dresses you don’t need to wear a bra due to them boned and padded in all the right places. But please do wear knickers!
We have some beautiful Kurt Geiger shoes in the boutique to try with your dresses, however if you already have your killer wedding shoes then please bring them along…. we love a good pair of heels
Our dresses start from approximately £790 – £3795, the majority of dresses are under £2000.
We have a small selection of dresses in our outlet section which are all under £1000 and available to take home the same day! ££’s saved to spend elsewhere.
Congratulations! You’re now a #LRbridebabe, welcome to the coolest girl gang in town!
We will require a 50% deposit upon order placing and the remaining 50% will be due when your dress arrives at the boutique – usually 4-6 months later depending on the designer.
For all dresses purchased from our outlet range we will require 100% payment on the day of purchase.
We accept all major credit and debit cards. Unfortunately we cannot process cheques.
At this time we do not offer in-house alterations but it is something we are looking to introduce in the near future. However I can point you in the right direction to some local seamstresses in Bedfordshire and surrounding areas who can help with any finishing alternations. Please note, we are not in contractual agreements with any recommended seamstresses.
During a trunk show, we have more of the particular designer’s collection in store, including new styles and bestsellers. If you know you love a specific designer, a trunk show is a perfect time to book your appointment! Make sure to do so in advance…trunk shows book up fast! We also offer discounts for brides who find their dream dress at a trunk show. Yay!
