Recently engaged? Wondering when you should begin dress shopping? 

We suggest starting your bridal shopping journey at least a year before your wedding day, with the aim to finalise your purchase approximately 8-10 months ahead of your wedding day.

If your timeline is shorter don't panic -some of our designers offer a rush order service, where they can produce your dress in a reduced amount of time but this attracts a fee.

Ban the beige and escape the overused beige aesthetic
Why on Earth did we choose green for a bridal studio? Green is calming and tranquil, but also inspiring. Many of our brides have decided to opt for green themes and bridesmaid dresses after seeing our space! Also, controversial comment coming your way... Beige is boring. It's flat. And when the weather is pants, it's even worse. Ban the beige and escape the overused beige aesthetic. #banthebeige #bridalstudio #modernbride #2025bride #2024wedding
