Little White Dress recommends starting the shopping process at least six to eight months in advance. Some dresses may take only 8 weeks, and others can take up to 26 weeks. Bear in mind that you will need to allow time for alterations at the end, as all dresses will require you to have a fitting for any minor changes you need, be it length, or otherwise.
It is a good idea to wear a strapless bra, seamless skin coloured underwear if possible, and shoes with a heel of the approximate height that you think you may wear on your wedding day (though we have a selection of shoes for you to try on here). Bring some clips or hairbands if you want to try dresses with hair up and/or down. You may feel more comfortable if you wear tights, but this is entirely up to you (they may stick to the lining!) And make sure you look your best and are having a ‘happy day’! (How could you not, you are newly engaged?!)
If you have any ideas in mind, or have seen any dresses in magazines or online that you like, bring them along and we can discuss these during your time here.
We stock a variety of sizes in our boutique. 8’s, 10’s, 12’s, 14’s and 16’s (though we can order smaller or larger sizes for you) and we can pin the dresses onto you in a way you will know what the dress will look like in your size. The dress will then be ordered for you in your size. If you are in a rush, there is always a selection of ‘off-the-peg’ dresses available for you to buy at discounted rates, often up to 50%.
