FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

As a 5-star supplier of wedding dresses and bridal services in the Bristol and North-Somerset area, we often get asked very similar questions. These questions are typically very similar and relate to wedding dress alterations, appointments and keepsakes. I hope you find the answer you're looking for here though if you continue to have concerns, please message us via the 'Contact Us' page. 

Where are you & whats your postcode?


We're located just outside Clevedon at Clevedon Craft Centre, on Moor Lane. The easiest way to find us is to drive towards Tickenham from the Clevedon M&S garage and to turn right in 350m. This takes you down a narrow lane and over a motorway bridge. Clevedon Craft Centre signage is visable from this point onwards. We recommend not using a traditional satnav and postcode to find us, as this often takes people to the wrong location. A map showing our exact location can be found on our 'Contact Us' page.




Do you alter dresses bought from other shops?


Yes we do and no job is too big or too small. Please book a free, no obligation consultation for a quote.




Do you only alter wedding dresses?


No, we have a general alteration service available for any garments. Im afraid we don’t alter curtains though. (Please ensure clothing is clean before bringing them in for repairs/alterations).




How long before my wedding should I have my dress altered?


This can vary depending on the work involved. For most alterations we recommend 6-8 weeks before the wedding. However, complex, reconstruction or re-styling work may require longer. We get extremely busy during the summer (April-September) so we do recommend booking in advance.




Can I bring my children?


We love children and you are welcome to bring them with you. However, please be aware that we are a working studio and there are pins, sewing machines and other hazards around. We do advise you to bring someone with you, who can keep your children occupied during your appointment, especially if they are of crawling/walking age or if they are likely to get bored quickly.




Can I bring friends & family to my appointment


Absolutely. We are more than happy for you to bring loved ones with you. We do recommend however, that anymore than 3-4 people can sometimes be a little overwhelming (especially if they have conflicting opinions).




Do you have fixed prices for alterations?


All alterations are priced individually depending on the work involved. Please contact us for an estimate or any further information. Alternatively, please book an appointment for a free, no obligation consultation. Once I have seen the garment I will be able to provide you with an accurate quote.




What price range are your dresses?


Our bridesmaids dresses are priced from £160-£300. Our wedding dresses range from £200 to £3,000.




Do I need an appointment?


Yes please. We are a working studio (often to deadlines) and also have limited changing area available, so we do request you book an appointment to ensure we are able to provide you with our full attention.




How long do appointments take?


Consultations are for 1hr and alteration fittings vary depending on the garment and amount of adjustments required. Fittings for general alterations, prom dresses and bridesmaids dresses usually take 20-30 mins. Bridalwear fittings usually take 30 mins to 1hr.
