As we want to give every bride her full 60 minutes experience, we ask that you not be more than 15 minutes early. By the same token, arriving late will result in a shortened consultation time. We understand that sometimes it is impossible to keep an appointment due to unforeseen circumstances. Please cancel your appointment as soon as possible so that we can accommodate other brides on the waiting list. We appreciate your help with regards to this.
What do I need to bring to the appointment?
Please bring correct underwear/shapewear if you intend to wear them on your wedding day. This can make a huge difference in the way a dress fits. Please try not to wear makeup if possible.
Do I need to book an appointment?
We work on an appointment basis only. Please make sure to book your appointment well in advance to avoid disappointment. A consultant will assist you with the fitting after she has determined your needs. She will also pick dresses based on your requirements for you to try. We suggest that if you intend to buy a dress that you make a booking about 6-8 months prior to your booking and if you are renting around 3-4 months before your date.

We try to cater for all brides when it comes to budget. Our rental prices start at R3500 and go up to R15000 and purchase prices start at R7000 and go up to R25000. A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to book a dress for rental. If buying a dress we require a 70% non-refundable deposit to order the dress. Alterations and accessories are not included in the prices and will be charged separately.
Do you offer rentals?
We rent out most of our samples. Rental dresses are subject to availability for your date and first come first served. We can do certain alterations to rental dress as long as it doesn’t affect the original look of the dress and it can be undone. Regretfully we cannot rent out dresses to very short ladies as we have limits to where we can shorten the dresses.
