Yes, like many exclusive bridal boutiques, we work on an appointment only basis, to ensure we’re ready for you and to give you the very best of experiences.

Do you charge for appointments?

Yes, we charge a £20 non-refundable, non-exchangeable fee for appointments booked Mon-Thur. A £30 non-refundable, non-exchangeable fee applies for appointments made on Fri-Sat. Fees are redeemable against the cost of your dress.

Having a dress fitting in Florianni is an experience like no other. During your fitting, the entire shop is closed for you, so you can take your time trying the dresses and having the full attention of our experienced team.

You’ll also be served a glass of Prosecco. 

Plus, you can claim the booking fee back on your purchase!

How far in advance should I order my gown?

We ask for around 6-12 months’ notice depending on the designer. 

How long is my appointment?

Because we offer a more consultative experience, you should set aside up to 1.5 hours for your appointment. This should be the perfect amount of time for you to find your dream dress. If it isn’t, you can book to see us again. We want you to be absolutely thrilled, delighted and excited about the dress that you’ll wear on your special day. Remember, all appointment fees are fully redeemable against the cost of your dress.

How should I prepare for my appointment?

We politely request that you do not wear fake tan, as it can stain our gowns. If you do attend with fake tan, your appointment will not be allowed to go ahead. Face make-up is fine though, and we would recommend wearing skin-coloured underwear. You do not have to wear a bra. Most importantly, come with a big smile and an open mind.

How many appointments can I have?

This experience is all about you. The first is for us to work together to create your ideal dress. However, if you can’t decide then we can always have a second appointment. We always want you to be absolutely thrilled, delighted and excited about the dress that you’ll wear on your special day.

How many guests can I bring?

We know buying a dress is a team decision and you’ll want people with you. We welcome a maximum of 3 of your confidantes, muses and collaborators so you’re comfortable when making such an important decision.

How do I pay for my gown?

All our gowns are made to order so obviously there can’t be any refunds, credits or exchanges. We ask for 100% of the cost upfront for custom-made wedding dresses, and 50% deposit for all other gowns, with the remaining balance to be paid within two weeks of your dress’s arrival into our shop. Alteration costs are NOT INCLUDED in the price of your gown. We accept payment via bank transfer or cash only.

Do I need an appointment to pick up my gown?
