Bridal Room

Choosing your wedding dress is one of the most special events of your life. At DressPlace we understand that it can also be quite a stressful time because you want to get it right, after all, you will be looking at your photos forever.

Some brides know exactly what they are looking for but most brides don’t know where to start, often leaving it to the last minute in the hope that they will get some inspiration. That’s where our team of professional, experienced bridal consultants come in. Before you start to try any dresses on we will have a chat with you, finding out what you like and don’t like, what would suit your body shape, and your venue.

We will then help you to choose the dresses for you to try on, eliminating the styles that aren’t suitable until we find your dream dress.

We have air conditioning in every bridal, bridesmaid and mother of the bride suite along with every changing room to give you the very best bridal boutique experience.

We understand that you don’t want to be rushed, or feel like you are in a cattle market, so we offer you 2 hours for your appointment. We will make your experience a very happy one, welcoming your family and friends with plenty of refreshments on offer too.

Our excellent customer service doesn’t end there; we will look after you all the way through until your wedding day. When your dress arrives from the Designer, approximately 4-6 months later, you come to try your dress on, it becomes real then! That’s when you pay the balance. We will store your dress but you are welcome to come back to try it on at any time, just in case you have forgotten what it looks like! You may like to have a hair trial on the same day so you can try veils and headdresses on too, like a dress rehearsal for the actual day.

Around 6 weeks before your wedding, you will come back to have your first fitting, with one of our lovely seamstresses, Beverley and Sim. At your first fitting they will pin your dress where required adding bra cups and petticoats if needed.

Your second fitting will be 2 to 3 weeks later when the seamstresses have completed the alterations. In some cases, you may need a third fitting, especially if you loose weight. Once you are happy with the finished dress that’s when you pay for the alterations. We will store your dress for you right up until the day before your wedding; we will steam it and get it ready for collection, so you look perfect on your wedding day.

We really don’t want to say goodbye because we get so involved with you and your family (especially if your Mothers and bridesmaids have found their lovely outfits in our boutique too). We love it when you come back to show us your photos and tell us all about your day.

Dear Helen, Wendy, Gemma and all the team at Dressplace,

I just wanted to thank you so much for all of your help in finding my perfect dress and getting it ready for my wedding day! You were recommended to me by family friend and from the minute we walked through the door for my first appointment we could see why! We were made to feel so welcome and at home. Wendy was absolutely amazing in knowing what sort of dress style would suit my body shape best and if it wasn't for her, I don't think I'd ever have ended up with THE wedding dress!

As my appointment with you was the first I'd been to, I didn't want to jump right in. I made an appointment at another dress shop, however, within minutes of arriving at the other shop I knew I had to go back to Dressplace. The service and quality of sample dresses at other shops was a million miles away from the excellent service you offer at Dressplace. It was so nice to be greeted by everyone when we returned for my second appointment, and that was the day I ordered my dress! I felt so at ease with everything because everyone was so professional and knew what they were doing. I wasn't expecting my dress to come in for at least 6 months, but about 5 months later I got the call to say it had arrived! I couldn't wait to see it, so Helen made provisions for me to pop in and see the dress (although I wasn't quite ready to try it on again just yet!).

Four weeks before my wedding day I went back for my first of 3 fittings. Again I was greeted with smiles and made to feel very welcome. Gemma was very helpful and professional and knew exactly what did and didn't need altering on my dress just by looking at it! The service was just amazing from start to finish and I can't recommend Dressplace enough - you made me feel like royalty!!

I've attached some photos of the dress from our wedding day for you to look at/share as you wish.

Massive thanks

Louise Cowlishaw-Booth
