Please take a look at the sections below to find the answers you’re looking for. If you can’t find what you’re looking for or have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me
1. What is a 1-1 bespoke consultation
I offer a unique bridesmaid shopping experience with your bridal party, 4-5 months before your wedding day. One for the mems with your girls, my whole showroom is yours and yours only for your consultation you can sit back and relax while your bridesmaids try on all my bridesmaid dresses without any distractions or other guests in the showroom. You have my full undivided attention and expertise I will look after you through the whole consultation ensuring we are trying on all options, and I very much look forward to creating magic with you if you choose to book with me.
2. When do you recommend booking in for a consultation?
The easiest way to work out when to book a consultation is to take your wedding date and count back 16-20 weeks (4-5 months) between these weeks are when you should book a consultation. Because the consultation that I offer includes a full free measuring service within it, I only accept bookings between 4-5 months before your wedding date, you will receive your dresses 10 weeks after you have had your consultation.
Below is a rough guide to understand when to book in.
My wedding is in the month of January – I need to book a consultation between September/October
My wedding is in the month of February – I need to book a consultation between October/November
My wedding is in the month of March – I need to book a consultation between November/December
My wedding is in the month of April – I need to book a consultation in December/January
My wedding is in the month of May – I need to book a consultation in January/February
My wedding is in the month of June – I need to book a consultation in February/March
My wedding is in the month of July – I need to book a consultation in March/April
My wedding is in the month of August – I need to book a consultation in April/May
My wedding is in the month of September – I need to book a consultation in May/June
My wedding is in the month of October – I need to book a consultation in June/July
My wedding is in the month of November – I need to book a consultation in July/August
My wedding is in the month of December – I need to book a consultation in August/September
The above timeframes are a guideline to follow for best accuracy with measurements in keeping with our production lead times capabilities. As explained above, you will receive your dresses 10 weeks after you visit the showroom for a consultation so if there is not a consultation booking available specifically between 4-5 months before your wedding, at your own discretion you are able to book slightly outside of this timeframe. Please note if you book slightly more than 5 months before your wedding you must confirm with your bridesmaids that they are comfortable being measured for their dresses at the consultation or they can provide their own measurements 4 months before your wedding. Or if you book slightly less than 4 months before your wedding it will just reduce the amount of weeks ahead of your wedding that your dresses will be delivered to you. PLEASE DO NOT book a consultation with less than 3.5 months to go before your wedding, this is our cut off for ordering with us to ensure delivery in good time ahead of your wedding date.
3. How does your availability for 1-1 bespoke consultations work?
I open my diary 3-4 months at a time and 5-6 months in advance to give time to find a suitable date that works for all your bridal party and book in 4-5 months before your wedding date. You will the time slots that I have available to book once you click SELECT TIME. You can see availability up to a maximum of 6 months away. If the calendar is BLANK with no times showing, it means there is no remaining availability for that day. Please see example of my calendar with both available slots and no available slots.
Consultation dates for between January 24' - April 24' – NOW LIVE
Consultation dates for between May 24' – August 24' will be live on Wednesday 31st January at 6pm
Consultation dates for between September 24' - December 24' will be live on Tuesday 30th April at 6pm
4. When do you do 1-1 consultations?
I hold consultations every Saturdays and Sundays. Apart from a hand full of Sundays through the year where I hold open days which are events that are open to the public for casual browsing, and these days are accessible to any bride no matter your wedding date (please see OPEN DAYS for more information on these type of days at the Showroom)
5. I don’t get married until next year, can I not come for a 1-1 bespoke consultation this year?
Unfortunately, due to limited availability and booking capacities as well as factoring in measuring responsibilities, I am not able to hold a bespoke consultation for weddings further than 4-5 months away from the consultation date. Coming for a consultation further than 5 months away would put the responsibility of providing your bridesmaids measurements 4 months before your wedding on you as the bride, I unfortunately do not have the capacity to offer a second appointment. Please adhere to my guidelines to maximise the full made to measure service that I offer. If you are interested in choosing me to make your bridesmaid dresses for you but would like to see my styles prior to a consultation please consider attending one of my OPEN DAYS at the showroom.
