In preparation for your visit to Miss, here are a few things you need to know.
When do I start looking for a dress?
We recommend that you start looking for a dress 10 months before your wedding day. This will give you plenty of time to gather ideas and inspiration and leave you enough time to place your order and adhere to our designers lead time.
How do I make an appointment?
At Miss we offer a ‘by appointment only’ service to ensure each bride experiences our unique service. You can make an appointment by contacting Miss by phone or email on the Contact Us section. Or you may want to contact us via Facebook or Twitter.
What can I expect at the appointment?
Buying your wedding gown should be an enjoyable and fun experience. So, we celebrate your experience at Miss with a glass of bubbles when you walk through the door. Your initial appointment will last 1 hour 30 minutes, during which you can expect to try on many different styles of gowns. We advise you stay ‘open minded’ if we suggest some styles you may not have thought of, even if initially you do not like them as you may be surprised as to what suits you and what doesn’t. We will between us find you a gown that will complement your type of wedding, body shape and your personality. Our dresses prices range between £1,400 and £4,500.
Do you stock all sizes?
As with all bridal boutiques, our gowns are sample sizes. This means that they are unlikely to fit you perfectly. However, don’t worry as we will try and give you an idea of how the dress will look in your size. All we will say is, you will definitely know when you have found the one.
Who shall I bring with me?
Buying your wedding dress should be one of the most exciting days of your life and it is tempting to share it with everyone. However, too many opinions can be confusing and overwhelming. So, at Miss we suggest you bring no more that three guests.
What should I wear?
We suggest you wear flesh coloured, seamless underwear if possible. Along with a good, uplifting strapless bra this will help any gown look at it’s best. We provide shoes for your appointment, but as soon as you have purchased your actual wedding shoes, we suggest you bring them to all future appointments as they may affect your alterations.
What can I expect for ‘my fitting’ appointment?
Once your gown has been delivered to Miss, we will invite you to come in for your first fitting where we will make any alterations due to measurements that may have changed since we last saw you. Once these alterations have been made, we will invite you back for your final fitting. We will then steam or press your gown as appropriate and it will be ready for collection.
How do I pay for my dress?
We require an initial non-refundable deposit at the time of purchasing your gown. This will be 50% of the total price. The balance needs to be paid upon Miss receiving delivery of your gown. Please be aware that once the deposit has been paid, no monies are refundable. Any alteration fees will be due when you come in for your final fitting.
