    Bring people with you who will give you an honest opinion but will also take in consideration your own.
  5. 5
    What underwear do I wear?
    Well clean ones are a good start. (Giggling) We advise comfortable ones & if possible a strapless bra but if you do not have one do not panic. Just your normal underwear is fine.
  6. 6
    When do I book my appointment with the seamstress?
    We advise to book in with the seamstress 3 months before your wedding however you are more than welcome to book earlier if you wish.
  7. 7
    Are alterations included in the cost of the dress?
    No. You pay for your dress in full before the alterations are completed. You then have your appointment with the seamstress & pay her direct once they have been finished & your gown is ready to take home.
  8. 8
    How many fittings will I need?
    This will depend on the dress style, the cut and the fabric but also whether you change your shape by losing weight. We recommend two fittings, but in some cases and for a simple hem you may only need one.
