Your Wedding Dress Fitting
Here at Groom & Co we’d like to give you an idea of what you can expect from your fitting appointments with us.
Please do feel free to contact us with any queries you have or to make an appointment to achieve the perfect fit for your special day.
Your first fitting
This is the first step in creating your dream dress…
We usually welcome you for your first fitting 4 – 6 weeks before your big day. If your wedding is sooner just let us know as soon as you can – we’re happy to pull out all the stops for a bride in need!
You will be appointed a dedicated dress fitter who will be on hand to measure, fit and provide expert advice on all things alterations to ensure you will feel as comfortable as possible on your big day. To make your experience as enjoyable as possible, there are a few things you will need to remember so we can get the fit just right:
- Your dress!
- Your wedding shoes
- The lingerie you plan to wear for your wedding
- Don’t forget to remove any makeup or fake tan
- As the fitting can be quite intimate and time consuming, we recommend bridesmaids or other important guests are fitted in a separate session.
YOUR SECOND FITTING
Now your dedicated seamstresses have had time to work their magic, a couple of weeks before your wedding, you will be invited back to our Jesmond boutique for your second fitting.
The second fitting is designed to take any final measurements that are needed to create a dress perfectly tailored to you. This is also when we will add any of your personalised finishing touches that will make your dress truly unique.
THE FINAL TOUCHES
It is not uncommon to need some final alterations just before your big day, the third fitting will be dedicated to all those finishing touches. We will make any final amends to sizing and embellishments to make sure your dress is absolutely perfect.
COLLECTING YOUR DRESS
Are you ready to wow on your big day? We will be in touch as soon as your dress is perfected and ready for collection.
AFTER YOUR WEDDING
As your wedding draws to a close, it doesn’t have to be the end of your wedding dress story.
You can choose to preserve your dress and all of the memories it holds or even create something new for yourself or a loved one to cherish. We offer the following services:
