Award winning customer service and we have 100% 5* reviews on Google and Facebook! So I think I’ll leave it to my beautiful brides tell you more about the Champagne & Charlotte shopping experience:

“Such an amazing experience, everyone made to feel very special. Just like something from a movie, don’t know anywhere else doing it like this and so well”

“What you imagine wedding dress shopping should be like. Champagne and chocolate on arrival and a gorgeous, hand-picked selection of dresses to choose from. Charlotte’s relaxed and laid back manner takes all the stress out of shopping for ‘the one’.”

“I cannot recommend, or thank, Charlotte and her beautiful boutique enough! She made me feel so incredibly comfortable from the moment I walked through the door with her bubbly, friendly personality. She’s also extremely professional and clearly loves her job. She is, quite simply, the best!”

“Charlotte was so lovely and she gave me the easiest, stress free and perfect experience of finding my dress. Asked me questions I hadn’t even thought about and knew exactly what to do.”

“Charlotte, you are an absolute dream to be around, your calming personality yet valued advice is everything you want when dress shopping and the whole experience really was everything you imagine growing up!! Just can’t thank you or recommended you highly enough!”

“I can’t recommend Champagne & Charlotte enough! I had such an amazing experience when shopping for my wedding dress. My questions and queries were always answered and she really listened and understood the vision for my wedding dress. She was so helpful and went above and beyond.”

“The idea of shopping for a wedding dress was not a fun one for me, I was slightly dreading the whole experience but from the moment I stepping into Champagne and Charlotte I was instantly put at ease, I felt so welcomed and comfortable.”

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, please don’t worry, we can srill help! Most of our designers keep a selection of dresses in stock and 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 wedding dresses range from £1000 – £3500. The majority are between £1600-£2300.

No, we work on an appointment only basis.

This means that you receive our undivided attention throughout your appointment and always have your pick of our full selection of beautiful wedding dresses! 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. Please consider your appointment as an exclusive, gown-up treat! It can make it really difficult for the bride to relax and enjoy the appointment if she’s constantly worrying what the little ones are up to.

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!

Most brides find their perfect wedding dress with us at the first appointment and the celebrations begin!! Sometimes, you may need to go away and have a think before coming back another day to try your dress and be 100% sure you love it, and that’s ok too! Once you have found ‘the one’, we require a 50% deposit. The remaining 50% balance is then due when your dress arrives in the boutique with us (usually about 4 months before your wedding date.)

We are fully aware that taking your clothes off with a complete stranger 15 minutes after meeting them can feel slightly daunting so please wear whatever underwear you feel most comfortable in. Nude/seamless underwear will be the least visible and help you to get the best idea of how the dresses will look on your big day.

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.

We also have trunk shows throughout the year. This is where we have a full seasons collection from a particular designer in the boutique for one weekend only!

It is our mission to make your wedding dress process as stress-free as possible. This is why we have a talented independent seamstress on hand that can be used for these alterations and these fittings take place in the boutique.

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.

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