When should I begin dress shopping?
We recommend you start shopping for a wedding dress 9 to 12 months before your wedding date and purchase a gown 6 to 9 months in advance. The amount of lead-time varies per designers but this way you will be sure to have your dress on time. We get it, not everything is planned this far in advance. Need your dress sooner? Rush orders are available upon request but an extra fee will apply.
Do I need to book an appointment?
We are an appointment only boutique. This way we can give you the personal attention that you deserve while finding your perfect dress. Because we are a small boutique, we only accommodate one bride at a time. You can book your appointment here. Need a little more inspiration? Go check out our amazing designers.
How long is an appointment?
All appointments will be an hour and fifteen minutes. This gives us enough time to get to know you a little and for you to browse our racks full of dresses and accessoires. After which you can try on as many gowns as we can manage.
Who should I bring to my appointment?
Bring the people that know you best and who you want to share this special moment with. We recommend that you do not take more than 3 people with you as sometimes too many opinions can make it harder to find your perfect gown. Also, we are a boutique size store which means that keeping your entourage on the smaller side will be most comfortable for everyone. However, if you feel that you need to bring more than 3 people, just let us know beforehand en we will try to accommodate you to the best of our powers.
What should I bring to my appointment?
We recommend you to wear nude underwear as this is best to wear under your gown and also a strapless or even better, a backless bra. Also, when determining the length of your gown it is good to know the shoes you are going to wear on your wedding day, or even better, take them with you. We urge you to not wear to wear really natural make-up to keep our gowns clean.
What is the price range of your dresses?
Our made to order gowns range from €1.500 – €7.500 euro with the majority of them between €2.500 and €5.000 euro.
What method of payment do you accept?
We only accept payment by debit card. When you purchase your gown you can either pay 100% of the amount or choose to pay 75% when your dress is ordered and 25% when you come to pick it up. The choice is yours. If your wedding is less than 6 months away, payment will be required in full. Make sure you give your bank a heads up so that it will allow the amount/payment.
What sizes are your sample gowns?
Our samples range from a size 6 to a size 12 but don’t worry if you do now fall in these size categories. We have our ways to clip our a gown to give you a feeling of how it will look in your size.
You found your dream dress (yay!).
Now, what’s next? First of all, congratulations! We are sure that you will look breathtaking in your gown! When you have found the dress of your dreams we will size you and order your dress. All our dresses are made to order dresses with each of them a different lead time up to 6 months. When the dress arrives we will contact you to either pick it up or have it perfectly sized by a seamstress. Alterations are not included in the price of your dress. Since the dress is ordered in a size very close to your actual sizes, usually not much alterations are needed. When you choose to have your dress altered by us, our seamstress will go through your first fitting with you after which she will alter your dress. We than invite you for your (usually) last fitting. The dress should fit perfectly at this time and you can take it home straight away.
