On arrival at The Bridal Gown I will ask you questions about your dream wedding day. This is to help me guide you through the collections to discover your perfect wedding dress. It also gives you the opportunity to ask questions about fabrics and designers and our friendly and knowledgeable staff are there to help. You will be served on a one-to-one basis and have sole use of the boutique for your comfort and privacy , making it a truly magical experience.
We stock a wide range of couture wedding dresses for you to browse through and select gowns you would like to try on. Your first appointment usually takes about one and a half to two hours; during this time you and your guests will be offered refreshments in our second floor mirrored fitting room, giving you time and space to make your decision.
Ensuring all our gowns fit correctly is something we pride ourselves on. This is due to the care taken from the start while measuring and ordering, and our seamstress’s expertise.
As many brides do not conform to a standard size, many of our designers offer split sizes which means that we can order different hip to bust sizes on the same garment. In addition to this, So Sassi offer a made-to-measure and toile couture service. This is to ensure the best possible fit at time of ordering. We have a high quality in-house designer seamstress with over thirty years’ experience, and all alterations and fittings take place on the premises. The seamstress is also available to make those little extras that change the beautiful into the unique, such as jackets and attachments to the wedding dress, rushed ties for the grooms and flower girl dresses.
We have a wide range of wedding accessories for you to try on, many of which are made in the UK. These include:
¨ Beautiful wedding shoes by Rachael Simpson which are just a little different to the usual bridal shoe.
¨ Excellent ranges of tiaras and hair ornaments by Halo & Co and Miranda Templeton.
¨ For our couture customers, veils by Sassi Holford. These are beautifully cut and a fabulous shape.
¨ Veils by Elizabeth Dickens: a quality veil with a wide range of sizes and styles.
¨ Petticoats which are available to hire or buy.
Other services include:
¨ Free dress insurance up to a value of £1000 through the British Bridal Retailers Association.
¨ Flexible payment terms.
¨ Out-of-hours appointments can be arranged.
At The Bridal Gown we pride ourselves not only on our outstanding customer service but also the diversity of our bridal ranges and wedding accessories, which allow your personality to shine through on your dream wedding day.
We look forward to your visit.
