SEAMS ob­vi­ous


MAKE AN AP­POINT­MENT Many bou­tiques take walk-ins dur­ing the week but op­er­ate as ap­point­ment-only at the week­end. Some bou­tiques will of­fer one-on-one ap­point­ments so brides have com­plete pri­vacy. If that’s im­por­tant to you, it’s worth check­ing be­fore­hand whether you’ll be the only bride in the shop! Some bou­tiques charge an ap­point­ment fee - usu­ally £I 0-25 - usu­ally re­deemable against pur­chase or re­fund­able upon at­ten­dance. FAKE TAN While it’s tempt­ing to get all glammed up to go dress shop­ping, we’ve all seen the dam­age a spray tan can do to your bed sheets - so imag­ine the havoc you could wreak on half a dozen white sam­ple dresses. In terms of makeup, a sub­tle wash of colour on the lips and cheeks will be enough to make you pop in the dresses! OVER­BOOK YOUR­SELF Most bou­tique ap­point­ments last around 90 min­utes, usu­ally enough time to try on half a dozen dresses. We rec­om­mend a max­i­mum of two ap­point­ments in one day to avoid feel­ing over­whelmed. As for the big de­ci­sion? It’s to­tally fine to go home, have a think, then go back later once you know for sure. You don’t need to choose there and then.
