The Do’s and Don’ts of Choosing Your Wedding Dress and Making the Most of Your Appointment

Posted by on July 10, 2013 at 3:06 pm

If possible, make your first appointment 6-12 months ahead of the wedding. You will have a greater choice if you give us lots of time, though some dresses take just 3 months and rush is possible, this will lessen your choices.

Saturdays are busiest, so book well in advance if you need to travel. We’re also open on Sunday, if you want to avoid Saturday. Evening appointments are also possible, but please let us know in lots of time, please don’t call us the day before and expect us to have available staff.

1950’s tea length wedding dresses come to just above the ankle. Shorter Fifties wedding dresses are also available and most dresses can be made longer or shorter to suit. Coloured petticoats are also available to suit your colour schemes.

DO

  • Bring a camera, or use your camera phone. We welcome brides or their friends taking pictures for comparison purposes.
  • Bring someone with you, whether that’s the mother of the bride, maid of honour or a friend. We must limit this to a maximum of three people.
  • Allow an hour to try on your 1950’s tea length wedding dress or corset and skirt combination gown.
  • Have an open mind and try colours and shapes you hadn’t considered. Everything looks different on a body than on the hanger. We specialise in corset wedding dresses and 1950′s tea length wedding dresses.
  • Wear the lingerie you plan to wear on the day if possible. A different bra can have an effect on the fit of the dress and alterations are costly.
  • Bring shoes of the height you plan to wear on the day, even if they aren’t the actual ones you have in mind.

DON’T

  • Have a spray tan within two weeks of your appointment or fittings. Your tan will mark the dresses, and we will have to postpone your appointment if this happens to limit damage to gowns.
  • Try to bring young children, as bridal appointments usually last an hour and this can be boring for little ones.
  • Order your dress until you have lost any weight you are planning. Last minute weight loss, or gain, will mean your dress won’t fit. Ordering the dress in the size you hope to be rarely works.
  • Compare yourself to the magazine models, who are generally tall and size 6 or less. If you are 5ft and a size 16-18 the dress will look different on you. Be realistic.

Yes, we have just received our Miss Fortune range of wonderful fun dresses, tops and skirts.
Firstly, we have a bit of a nautical theme with the gorgeous and classic Nancy halter neck swing dress in navy and white striped cotton. Continuing the theme, we have the nautical Nancy off-the shoulder top available in red or navy blue with small anchor buttons at neckline and a large anchor on back. Both delightfully different!
Then we have this red high waisted full skirt ideal for the end of summer/autumn days.
And to complete our Miss Fortune range we have two wonderful swing dresses. Firstly, a cherry print swing dress featuring a full skirt and red belt and then a leopard print swing dress again featuring a full skirt but with a black belt.
