I have said yes what next?

Congratulations on saying yes to your perfect Blue Bow Dress, thank you for choosing us and letting us be a part of your amazing journey. what happens now? Well ladies, a little celebration first of course!

Your dress and accessories are all on order and can take a little while to arrive at the boutique. Every designer is different in their delivery schedule but as a guide dresses can take anywhere from 4-7 months to arrive as they are made to order, they will take longer if you have requested a delayed delivery option. Certain times of the year can also have an impact on delivery dates and occasionally dresses can arrive slightly later or earlier than expected as designers will send the gown as soon as it is complete, which is great as you get to see your beautiful gown earlier than expected.

Once it has arrived in the store we will be in touch to let you know the exciting news and to get you booked in to come and try your gown on for the first time.
We will usually allocate a 30-minute appointment for your 1st try on, at this appointment your balance payment is due to be paid and you will take your beautiful gown home with you until it’s time for any required alterations.

Alterations usually start around 6 weeks before your big day. We ask you to get in touch with the seamstress Diane around 4 months before to book your 1st fitting appointment for around 6 weeks before your big day or travel date. You will need to make sure you have your wedding day bra (if you’re wearing one) shoes and underskirt if you have one or anything you need adding to your dress with you for your fitting with the seamstress which will take place at the boutique on your arranged date. Once your dress is all altered we ask you to contact us to book your beautiful gown in for steaming and collection, and if your travelling abroad if you require we can pack your gown for you in your chosen method.

Then ladies all that is left to do is have the best day of your life, and remember we can’t wait to see your photos so please share them with us.
