Frequently Asked Questions

We thoroughly recommend having an idea of your wedding date and venue before shopping for your wedding dress as these can have a huge influence on the dress you choose.

12-18 months before your wedding is a great time to start looking. We recommend ordering your dress no later than 10 months before your wedding to allow for fittings, delivery and any necessary alterations.

If you have less than 6 months until your wedding, most of our designers offer a rush order option, with a small charge. There are also certain times of the year when we will have sample dresses available to buy from the boutique.

Our stunning collection of wedding dresses range from £1000 – £3500. The majority are between £1500-£2500.

We work on an appointment only basis simply so that we are able to provide you with our undivided attention and allow you to have exclusive use of the boutique and complete privacy during your appointment!

Contact us today at hello@champagneandcharlotte.co.uk or give us a call on 01237 237210.

Whilst we are in an appointment, we lock the door to the boutique to give each bride exclusive use. This means that you receive our undivided attention and are able to feel comfortable to try on dresses without worrying about someone walking in. If you have any questions, you are always free to contact us on Facebook, via email or give us a ring on 01237 237210. 

We offer evening appointments by request. We are very flexible and will do whatever we can to accommodate you! If you would like to book an appointment, please just get in touch. 

During the appointment, we are able to accommodate a maximum of 4 guests, including the bride. We completely understand that this is an experience you want to share with lots of people but too many opinions can make the whole experience really overwhelming for you.

Wedding dress shopping isn’t much fun for children. Whilst we love little ones, consider your appointment as an exclusive, gown-up treat! It also makes it hard for the bride to entirely relax, just concentrate on herself and enjoy the appointment.

We want everyone to leave the boutique with amazing memories of their experience; with a few very important people accompanying you, your appointment will be so much more enjoyable and you will be confident that you have chosen a wedding dress that YOU love!

We understand how important this decision is and how overwhelming it can be. No bride should feel pressured or rushed into making a decision, which is why we allow at least 90 minutes for your appointment. We want you to feel relaxed and have fun, taking your time to find your dream wedding dress.

Once at the boutique, you will be provided with drinks and sweet treats whilst we discuss your wedding and hear all about your dream wedding dress! Please feel free to bring any pictures or inspiration you have that will guide us in finding your perfect dress.

The real fun begins as we pick some dresses together for you to try on!

For many, this initial appointment is enough time to find ‘the one’, which means it’s time to think about fittings and an accessories appointment.

However, if you are unable to find your dream dress in your first appointment, do no not worry! Shopping for your wedding dress can be really overwhelming; sometimes it is best to have a break from it to clear your head before coming back another day with a fresh perspective.

Wearing nude underwear to your appointment will give you the best idea of how beautiful the dresses look on you.

If you are planning to wear your hair up or pinned back, bringing along a hair clip or tie will allow you to see how the dress will look with the hairstyle you have in mind.

Although we have lots of gorgeous shoes in the boutique that you can try on with the dresses, if you have already picked out your wedding shoes or have a specific heel height in mind, please feel free to bring a pair along with you!

Please refrain from wearing heavy make up or fake tan to your dress appointments.

Please also note that photography is not permitted in the boutique. Any photos taken will not be a true reflection of how lovely you will look on the day. They usually lead to a panicking bride when the photos do not do the dress justice or their friend/family member has caught them at a bad angle!

Our sample wedding dresses range from size 10 to size 26.

Please do not worry at all about finding samples to fit; we have lots of clever tricks to give you a great idea of how the dress would look on your big day and we often get compliments about how good we are at doing this!

We handpick only a few of the dresses from each collection so if there is a particular dress you have seen from one of our designers, please let us know! If we do not have that specific dress in the boutique, we can loan a dress from the designer at a small delivery charge, which will be refundable if you decide to buy the dress.

The fitting process begins roughly 8-12 weeks before the date of your wedding. This will ensure enough time for the seamstress to make any necessary alterations to your dress so that it fits perfectly on your big day.

We are very lucky to have a talented independent seamstress that can be used for these alterations and these can take place in the boutique.

Please note, the cost of alterations are not included in the price of the dress.
