Appointments
Our doors are always open at The Perfect Fit Boutique for brides to browse through our wide range of bridal gowns.  To allow us to give a bride the service they deserve for choosing a dress, we recommend an appointment is made with one of our consultants.  This is to ensure that we fully explore all dress options before deciding on 'the one'.

Ordering A Gown
The search for the perfect dress can sometimes be a long road, so brides should start looking for dresses as early as possible. This gives the bride-to-be plenty of opportunity to look at different styles of dresses; as well as time to bring family and friends to see the favourites.  Dresses can take anything from 4-6 months to arrive in store, brides should allow additional time for any alterations to be made following this.

For those brides with less time to spare, we are happy to ask our suppliers who will endeavour to get dresses delivered quicker (may incur additional costs).

Deposits
On all dresses ordered, a 50% deposit is required.  The remaining balance is due once a dress is in store.  

A bride can choose to pay in full if they wish to do so. 

Alterations
Once a bride has selected the perfect dress, measurements are taken and the dress is ordered (Brides need to be aware that dress designers and styles vary greatly, and are rarely true to size). As soon as the dress is in store, a bride can choose their own seamstress, or we can recommend a seamstress that will meet you for your first fitting to discuss any alterations or changes you make require.  Some dresses may require more fittings than others; this depends on the type and style of dress.  A bride should bring their wedding shoes to any fittings they may have.


Colours

​Bridal gowns are generally available in white and ivory, with some available in other colours.  The occasion dresses that we have in store are all available in a range of 60 colours and a range of fabrics.  We offer our occasion dresses matte satin, chiffon, organza, french satin, and taffeta.
