What are your operating hours?
Consultations / Fittings are done on Saturdays, from 9:00 – 14:00 and Wednesdays from 18:30 – 20:30. Fittings are done by appointment only.
Is there a fitting fee?
R20 per dress fitted will be due at the end of the fitting.
Do you sell or hire wedding dresses?
We only sell wedding dresses, so hiring any of our gowns is not an option.
Are all the dresses on our website in stock?
No, we have a sample range in stock that is available for fittings. We try and keep as many different styles, with different silhouettes, material, necklines, etc to give brides the opportunity to find what she likes and what suits her best.
How many people can be brought along to a fitting?
We only have enough seating for 4 in our studio, so 3-4 is a good number.
Some advice – If you bring too many along with you, it can become very confusing.
Can any dress on your website be ordered?
YES, any dress from any of the online catalogues on the website can be ordered.
Can a dress be ordered in a different colour to the dress in the photos?
YES, absolutely. Dresses can be ordered in white, ivory or champagne, and in any colour on our colour chart. The colour chart is available on our website.
Can I order a dress that is not on your website?
YES, if you have photos of the dress you want, those could be sent to our suppliers and they will let us know if they can or cannot make it for you.
How long in advance should I come in for my first consultation to discuss my dress and how long in advance should the dress be ordered?
We would recommend coming in for your first consultation about 6-8 months before your wedding. Once your dress has been ordered, it will take about 12 weeks to complete. So, I would recommend ordering at least 16 weeks before your wedding.
Do I order the dress in a standard size or with custom measurements?
We recommend custom measurements for each bride, unless you are a standard size.
What happens if I lose or gain weight after the dress is ordered?
We highly recommend selecting the lace up closure if you are on a serious diet or plan to lose weight before your big day. This will allow for a change in size of a few centimetres without altering your dress. However, if a zip / buttons closure is chosen, you will have to try and keep your measurements the same. If you usually don’t lose or pick up quickly, then don’t stress, you have nothing to worry about.
If a dress needs altering, do you offer this service?
We don’t have an in-house seamstress, but we have a recommended seamstress that many of our Cape Town brides have used in the past.
