This is one the very most frequently asked questions we are asked at the store!
Let’s face it: all brides want to look their best on their day so what better incentive than your wedding is there to shed a few pounds and tone up?
However, many brides put off looking for their dress until they are at their target weight. This can result in a rushed race to find “the dress” rather than your dream shopping experience. Many bridal shops will greet you with a patronising look and “Oh you’re getting married when and you still haven’t got your dress? You’ve left it very late haven’t you?!”
We suggest that you come in to see us as soon as the ring is on your finger rather than when it has to be re-sized because you have shed a few stones! Ordering your dress doesn’t mean that we have to confirm the size there and then. We are usually able to delay measurements until 5 months before the wedding. The earlier you book your dress the more influence we have with the designer as to when your measurements are taken.
Should you lose weight between measurements and your first dress fitting our expert technical team will make the dress fit. Even if you have a gastric band fitted 8 weeks before your wedding and have lost 5 stones and dropped 5 dress sizes!
