Your Experience at BOW
We believe the right dress will not only look and feel amazing but truly reflect your personality and individuality and your vision for your wedding day.

Key steps to finding the right dress
- Use our expert wedding dress selection service as early as possible
Don’t leave buying your dress to the last minute, you might be restricted for choice. Equally don’t start looking too soon, unless you know your venue and can make a decision years in advance.
The ideal time frame to order your dress is 8-9 months before you wedding, especially if you are getting married in the summer.
Trying on wedding dresses is a very exciting part of wedding planning. However if you try on too many dresses it will become a sea of ivory in your head, you’ll struggle to remember them and lose that wonderful feeling of excitement.
Book a one to one appointment with us and we will guide you through the important decisions, all in an air of fun and calm.
- Selection appointments
We work by appointment only to ensure that you have the best experience possible.
If you would like to try on dresses we recommend making an appointment as soon as you are ready to think about buying your dress.
Saturdays have long waiting lists so if you would like a Saturday appointment we recommend you book as early. However your prefect dress is our priority and we will be as flexible as possible.
Do bring someone with you for support but remember too many opinions may cloud your judgement. It’s best to avoid bringing young children wherever possible as bridal appointments tend to get very boring for little ones and your party can end up becoming distracted and taking their focus from you.
We want you to enjoy your appointment as much as possible and we have everything you need for trying on dresses. It can be useful to wear a strapless bra, though not essential. We have shoes for you to wear whilst trying on the gowns, but if you’d prefer to bring your own from home that’s fine too.
- Setting a budget
A handmade wedding dress is something to be treasured.
Our dresses range in price from £1,300 up to £4000. We will work with you at all stages to meet your budget.
Should you have a slightly lower budget available for your dress but you’d still love a fabulous designer gown, please ask about any sample gowns that we may have available for sale.
All of our dresses are handmade just for you with a full made to measure service available to.
It’s very unlikely that the sample dresses you try on will fit you perfectly, but our experienced team will help you into the dresses and fit them so that you are able to visualize how your own dress will look.
As the samples will not fit perfectly we ask that you do not take photos of the dresses at this stage.
Once you have selected your dream dress our expert team will swing into action. You will be carefully measured before the dress is ordered in the correct size. When your beautiful dress arrives our seamstress will take you firmly in hand for your 1st fitting. Ensuring that your gown looks and feels amazing on the day. We know what busy bees our brides are so your two fitting appointments can be booked in advance and will be re-confirmed once the gown has arrived.
