When to start looking for your dream dress: At The White Wedding Lounge we believe the best time to start looking for your dream wedding dress is around 9 months to 1 year before your wedding date. With this in mind we would recommend that your dress is ordered no later than 6 months before your big day as they usually take 4-5 months to arrive into store.
Making an appointment: We always recommend making an appointment for any bridal shop you plan to visit as this gives them and you the right amount of time needed to find your dream dress. When planning to try bridal dresses on, its always best to come prepared with the correct underwear. A strapless bra is always a good idea and ensuring that any underwear you have on is plain & light coloured is also good.
The appointment: When you have an appointment with us an experienced member of staff will take the appointment and offer our advice & guidance to help in you finding your dream dress. In our intimate lounge we can seat any loved ones you choose to bring with you, our only advice would be not to bring too many people, as you can end up with a lot of confusing & conflicting opinions and it can make it hard to focus on what you really like & want. We do stock wedding shoes (By Rainbow) at The White Wedding Lounge with different sized heels ranging from kitten heels at 6.25cm to platform style at 11.5cm. These are available for you to try on with any of our bridal dresses, however if you do have your own shoes already please bring these with you to any appointment so you can ensure your happy and they match the dress you have chosen. We also offer a wide range of beautiful veils & shrugs/jackets from Richard Designs, as well a stunning collection of tiaras, combs and jewellery to complete the look.
Different Styles: Looking for your dream dress can be a long process and you can sometimes feel as though you are struggling with everything, but there are so many different styles and colours to choose from, its all about finding the perfect one for you. Its important to remember that we all have different body shapes & skin tones so a dress which would suit someone else, may not be the perfect one for you. The best thing to do is try on as many different style dresses as possible, because we get so many brides falling in love with their dream dress and it is nothing like the dress they imagined or even liked! Ordering Your Dream Dress: Bridal dresses can take around 4-5 months to arrive into store, therefore we recommend at The White Wedding Lounge not leaving it any longer than 6 months before your wedding date to order your dress. However if you don't have this amount of time, please don't worry give us a call and we can let you know which dresses we would be able to get within the time frame you have and arrange an appointment so you can come in and we can sort this efficiently for you.
Your Bridesmaids: Once you've sorted your own dress we can help with any adult bridesmaids you may have. We have a beautiful range of Bridesmaid dresses from Pure by Opulence ranging from as little as £150. We have a wide variety of dresses for you to choose from with around 50 different colours to pick.
After sales care: Once your dress has arrived with us, we will arrange a date for our in-house seamstress to meet with you and arrange any alterations needed. Once this has been completed the dress is now all yours and ready for you to take away should you wish. We will professionally press your dress ready for you and it will also have its own bag to make sure it stays safe & dry. Anything else which we can help you with then please let us know, we will do our best to take away as much stress as possible. After all its the little things that count the most sometimes and were always here to help, even after your big day.

Finally, we would like to say Congratulations from all of us at The White Wedding Lounge for your forthcoming wedding & a big Thank You for choosing us to be a part of your special day and helping you find your "Dream Dress."
