Brides: You will need to bring your shoes and your bra to the first and all subsequent fittings. If you are not sure if you need to wear a bra, give Gemma a call and she will talk this through with you. Many of the dresses are corseted so you may not need to wear a bra at all, but the team will advise you personally as every bride’s figure and requirements are individual. We ask that you be sparing with make-up on fitting days and please, no fake tan. You don’t want to run the risk of getting your dress dirty before you even get to the aisle.
Your fitting appointment usually takes around 30-45 minutes and we respectfully ask that you arrive on time. It’s tricky if you’re late as you will run into another appointment. 
It’s also a good idea to keep guest numbers to a minimum to ensure that Gemma can concentrate and that you have a valuable fitting appointment.
In addition to our standard wedding dress fitting and alterations service we offer a bespoke service allowing our clients to make changes to their chosen garment, to add their own stamp or individuality to it. Adding sleeves, changing necklines and creating coordinating jackets are just a sample of the bespoke options our seamstresses offer.
We also offer an Express Alterations Service, so that where possible your garment can be taken away within 24hours. This is particularly welcomed by clients who have travelled a distance to get to us.
