When should I start shopping for my wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses, and men’s hire?

Most brides start looking for their wedding dress approximately 12 months before the wedding day. Finding the right dress may take some time, and its a decision you don't really want to rush into. Just bear in mind that as a guideline it takes dresses 14-16 weeks to arrive, and we try to allow at least 6-8 weeks for any alterations that may be needed. So ordering your dress should be done approximately 6-8 months (or more) before the big day. However, DONT panic if you don't have that much time before the big day! Some of our designers are able to offer a rush delivery for an additional charge, we can also offer our sample dresses as an “off the peg” purchase, or we have a collection of much loved samples in our sale at reduced prices. Our quickest turn around is 2weeks for a Bride so please don't worry we will help you find your dream dress.
 For bridesmaids dresses the same time scales apply, so as soon as you've chosen your wedding dress its a good time to start looking at the different colours and styles available for your girls. As with wedding dresses rush delivery is available for an extra charge. We also keep a range of Flower Girl dresses in stock.
We keep a selection of Mother of the Bride/ Groom outfits in stock as well as being able to order styles in different colours and styles. They have the same guidelines from our designers, so will take approximately 14-16 weeks to arrive from order date, and again we try to allow approximately 8 weeks for any alterations that may be needed.
Men's hire is usually next, this can be done roughly 4-6 months before the wedding date. Its a good idea to choose your suit style and neck wear colour (you can use the Outfit Builder to help you), and then get the groom and his attendants measured up as soon as possible so we can load their sizes onto the computer system.
