Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to make an appointment to come for a fitting?
Yes, an appointment is necessary to ensure that Nicole or Marina are available in our Donnybrook studio to assist you.
How are far in advance should I schedule my appointment prior to my wedding date?
We suggest a minimum of six to eight weeks before your wedding date, as this would guarantee plenty of time for the first and second appointments.
How many fittings will I need ?
Typically each bride has two - three fittings depending on the dress type and the amount of work involved.
What should I bring to my fittings?
It is essential to bring the correct lingerie and your chosen shoes. However, it is not a problem if you don't yet have your actual wedding shoes for the first fitting, you would need them for your subsequent fittings as it will ensure that the hem-line is fitted perfectly.
Also, we do recommend that you don't purchase lingerie before your first appointment as during this time we would be able to advise you on a correct bra type for your dress.
What is the price range for wedding dress alterations?
We offer a package price which ranges from €250 to €350 for standard alterations, such as taking up shoulders, taking in sides and adjusting the hem.
If you would like something extra (on top of standard alterations), for example, to shorten train, to re-style neckline, to add straps/sleeves, with this additional work the price would be up to €400 - €450.
Can I get a quote over the phone?
It is essential for us to see your dress in order to provide you with an accurate quote. We recommend booking in for a no-obligation 15-minute free consultation. During this time you will try on your dress and we would be able to give you a price estimate.
How many days before my wedding would I collect my dress?
It is advised that you collect your dress a week before the wedding date. On that day we would steam and pack your gown so that it is ready to be taken home!
Can I purchase bridal accessories in your shop?
Absolutely, we offer a fantastic selection of veils, sashes, headpieces, straps, boleros and much more.
