Please bring no more than 3 guests to your appointment. Please arrange a babysitter in advance if you or your guests have children – it isn’t a safe environment for little ones and we need to ensure all the attention is on the bride during this super special time!
Photography is not allowed of the bride in the dresses. Please respect this. A sneaky photo and telling guests off is just embarrassing for all of us!
Most of our wedding dresses are size 10s and 12s. Don’t worry if you don’t fit in this size bracket we can still help you visualise how a dress will look in your size but please do bring your imagination along with you!
The majority of brides start the search for their dream dress approximately 12 months before the big day and after booking the venue. Once you have chosen your dress it can take four to eight months to be made. A further two to three months should be allowed for alterations to your bridal gown.
Light coloured underwear is ideal. A bra is not necessary for most of our dresses however please feel free to bring along a strapless bra if you prefer.
We have a plinth for you to stand on, and also some heels if you would like to walk around in the dresses.
Please don’t wear any tan (bride and guests) the dresses and our chairs are very light in colour and will mark easily.
Photography is not allowed in Victoria Lou Bridal unless a dress has been purchased (please let your guests know).
If you order your dress with us during your first appointment you’ll have your appointment fee credit towards, if you decide that you would like to arrange a second appointment there is a £15 fee for a 45 minute appointment which can also be used towards your dress. When you have found your dream Dres there is a 50% non refundable deposit. Payment is accepted via Visa, Mastercard debit and credit. BACs transfer, or cash.
If you choose a ‘ready to wear’ dress payment will be required in full and you will take the dress away on the day.
As soon as you have committed to your dress we would recommend requesting a date for your fitting appointments with a seamstress. Our recommended local seamstress is Stitched Up.
