Who should I bring to my appointment?
Bring the closest friend or family member whose opinion you value and who knows you well and with whom you want to share the experience of buying your gown. Bringing more than 3 others can take the focus off of you (also, our boutique is not too big).

Most of our wedding dresses are the traditional sample sizes, which are 10 & 12.
How far in advance do I need to buy my gown?
It's best to allow 6 months before your wedding to order a gown stress-free and have it waiting in your closet for the big day for a few weeks.
In reality it takes only up to 3-4 months for the gown to be made and delivered to our Perth boutique.
