Their seamstress, Elaine has over 25 years experience in making brides look and feel fabulous. Elaine says “It is of the highest importance that all our brides have a gown that is fitted for comfort and beauty. I get extreme pleasure in meeting our brides and completing their gowns for their special day.” All alterations are performed on site by Elaine.
Owners Kathryn and Ann offer their advice for brides to be: “Timing is crucial. Don’t leave it too late. The biggest problem we face is trying to find gowns for brides who leave wedding dress shopping to the last minute. Looking for dresses a year in advance gives you time to try plenty of styles and get an idea of what you want. The gowns take around 5 months from ordering to in-store delivery. You then you need to allow time for at least two fittings before your wedding date.
At the same time, looking too early can be a problem. We’ve had brides in the past who have looked at dresses way too soon and they are then disappointed when they come back to buy the gown a year later only to find it has been discontinued. Remember, when wedding dress shopping, if you fall in love with a gown you may need to pay a deposit to order the dress of your dreams however far in advance it may be.”
The store’s favourite Justin Alexander gown is Style 8751 due to its fit and flare shape. It’s sophisticated and makes every girl feel incredible. “It has everything our brides want,” says consultant Naomi, “It has delicate sparkle, fine lace detail and the illusion neckline which is really popular at the moment.”
