Ordering Your Dress

    Our prices range from £900 to £3,000 (with lots in-between!). Most dresses are ordered as a standard size and will require some alteration - here at Matchmaker Bride fittings and alterations are carried out in our own workroom, on the premises, and we pride ourselves on our first-class alteration service to ensure you dress fits perfectly.

    Remember bridal gowns can take up to 6-7 months to arrive in the shop so ideally you should aim to be ordering your dress 9-12 months prior to the date of your wedding (or travel date), this is to ensure that your fittings and any alterations can be arranged and completed in plenty of time.  

     If you are planning to lose weight before your wedding, it's still a good idea to try on and order early, and the size can then be deferred with the designer until you reach your desired weight. 

     We do love it when brides give us lots of notice, however for our 'last minute' brides it is always possible to arrange a 'rush cut' from one of our designers so that you receive a gown within a 4-8 week period, an additional charge will be required to enable this to happen. Or we can offer a 'sample' dress which can be bought off-the-rail to take away with you.
