 -

We have put to together  a little list of tips and hints to help you as a new bride get the the best from your gown fitting


  •  Book in advanced to ensure a free gown fitter and to avoid waiting times
  • Before leaving home try to gather a pair of shoes of which have a heel height you are comfortable in.
  • Wear good undies, you will be undressing, so feel confident in what you have worn.
  • If you have an idea of a hairstyle it wouldn't hurt to quickly pop an updo in if that's how you might wear it on the day. We don't mean create  a master piece, just a little taster so you can see how the necklines sit.
  • Do wear Make up, to feel elegant and to see how beautiful you are going to look in your gown - Don't however wear body make-up or fake tan, this stains the gowns.
  • Do leave home in plenty of time in order to not be late for your appointment, if you are running late do call the store and inform them. If you are unable to attend your appointment please do inform the store.
  • Do print of driving instructions from our About us page, and don't forget we have free client parking for the duration of your visit.


  • Do only bring a couple of close honest, but, constructive friends. Attending an appointment with 6 bridesmaids, mum, mum in law to be and children really will not be a successful appointment.
  • We allow only one other person in the fitting suite with you during the gown fitting, you can of course show others outside of the suite.
  • Due to the delicate nature of our gowns we do not permit pushchairs in our showroom, we would recommend children only accompanied you in an emergency.A gown fitting is a personal and special time for a bride, a time to be pampered and made to feel special, take this time for yourself, for just an hour i'm sure you deserve it. 
  • Sorry no photos can be taking at the fitting time unless an order has been placed, our designers are very proud and protective of their splendid collections and therefore impose copy write on all designs.
  • Do try gowns only within your budget, with prices from £99.00 - £2000.00 we will have a perfect gown for every bride.
  •  Do enjoy every moment of choosing your gown, be open to suggestion and embrace new ideas.

Purchasing on line

We do not offer any of our collections on line, our gowns are sold only within store where you can be treated like a real bride. It is important that all our brides are fitted with their wedding gown under our professional eye.
We stand fast with many other noted large bridal houses against internet buying. Purchasing online gives you no control over the gown you have ordered, in many cases these cheap imitation gowns will be faulty, wrong size, wrong colour,cheap unfinished fabrics, not as described, received too late, damaged and more often then not, they will be fake. 
Bridal stores work for years to build the respect of designers and clients in order to offer the best collections at the best possible price. The website www.bridesaware.co.uk has stories of brides who had hoped to save a few pounds and found the real hard truth of online ordering.
 Bridal houses offer you the chance to be treated like a true bride, your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life, you should embrace this opportunity and let us make you feel pampered and special.
