Wedding Dress Appointment
Book your bridal try on using our online calendar below
Weekdays: Free of charge! No fee is charged for weekday try on appointments. You can bring up to 3 guests with you. We will require card details on making your booking – this is reserve your appointment slot. If you cancel your appointment with less than 48 hours notice, then a fee of £20 will be charged. If you cancel with more than 48 hours notice, no fee will be charged.
Saturdays and Weekday Prosecco appointments: We charge £20 for a bridal try on appointment on a Saturday or if you want to have a Prosecco appointment during the week. You and your guests will get one of our Marble private bridal suites (pictured above) for 1.5 hours. We will provide you and up to 3 guests with a glass of bubbly each and some sweeties.
Our VIP appointments are in our newest VIP luxury suite where you can have for an extra long 1 hour 45 minute try on appointment. We will provide you and up to 4 adult guests with a glass of bubbly and sweeties, popcorn and candy floss. We charge £35 for our VIP room. This fee is charged at the time of booking. The fee is refunded if you cancel with more than 48 hours notice.
We are holding a Sample Sale 22 October to 30 October. These sale appointments will give you and your 3 adult guests just 1 hour to grab your bargain designer gown. A valid debit/credit card will be required to secure your appointment, but you will not be charged for the appointment unless you fail to attend or cancel with less than 48 hours notice in which case £20 will be charged. Sale appointments are not recommended as your 1st ever dress shopping experience as you’ll need to be focused about what you’re looking for and decisive as the dresses don’t hang around for long!
Follow up appointments
For brides that have already been to see us and want to come back and retry their favourite 1-2 dresses. These appointments last 45 minutes and there is a fee of £10 for a Saturday retry appointment. Weekday retrys are free of charge.
Prosecco Accessory appointments:
These appointments are for our Chameleon brides who we have contacted to say that their dress has arrived with us and want to look at accessories. You will get to try on your actual bridal gown and we will help you style your look with veils, hair accessories and jewellery. These are £20 in our Marble Suites. We will serve you and your 2 guests bubbly and sweeties. These take place on weekdays only and last for 1 hour.
Children and Babies
Unfortunately as we have an alcohol licence, children under 14 are not permitted on the premises. If you choose to bring children aged 14-18 to your appointment, no alcohol can be served to any of the bridal party.
Please use the drop down box below to book straight in to see us.
Mother of the Bride/ Groom Appointment
Due to the pandemic, we are currently having to limit the guests in our Mother of the Bride boutique. For that reason, we’d recommend booking an appointment.
We will be allowing you to bring 2 adult guests with you to the appointment.
You can book your appointment below using our online diary.
Your appointment will be at our brand new Mother of the Bride shop at 908 Christchurch Road, Bournemouth BH7 6DL next door but one to our main bridal shop. You will get 1 hour to try on.
Once you have booked your appointment, you will receive an automated email confirming your appointment. This should come through immediately. If not, please check your junk folder as sometimes we sadly appear as SPAM!
