Helpful Wedding Tips
Your wedding dress is one of the most important purchases you are ever going to make so we have put together some tips to help guide brides through what can sometimes be daunting experience.
Firstly Jacquelines is a Retail Bridalwear Association registered shop which means that we have had to attain consistent standards of quality and service, have been in business for in excess of seventeen years,, sell only genuine design label gowns and pass stringent annual accounting checks which in turn gives you, the bride, the benefit of a Free RBA backed BRIDES PROTECTION SCHEME which guarantees all payments made to us for your wedding gown
Here at Jacqueline’s we stock a huge range of bridal gowns from very contempary gowns to wildly romantic princess styles allowing brides to select a gown that not only reflects their personality but also their individuality . It is important to remember that each dress is made to order and that ordering time can be anything up to six months so we advise that you start looking and trying styles about 12 months before your wear date
Appointments are advisable to ensure we can have both a fitting room and a member of staff available for you, however should you just want to pop in we will always do our upmost to accommodate you. Choose carefully who you bring with you !!! Ask someone whose judgement you trust . Too many people and conflicting opinions will only confuse you. We do welcome children but would ask that should you wish to bring very young children, that you bring someone with you that is able to keep an eye on them.
Many brides tell us that they aiming to lose weight before the big day so alterations can play big part in the run up to the wedding. All our fitting are done here in store by our trained seamstresses and they start about 8 weeks before the wedding and can involve 2 or 3 appointments to achieve that perfect fit. You will need to bring with you the shoes and the underwear you are wearing on the day . The art of a good alteration is that the gown looks as if it has not altered at all !!!!. Whilst we do not charge for fittings, we do charge for the actual alterations but we are able to give you an estimate of cost beforehand.
All dresses require a 50% deposit before ordering with the balance being payable within 7 days days of us notifying you of its arrival . We are able to store your dress for you up until the date of your wedding at no additional cost. Before taking your dress home it will be steam pressed and presented in a full length gown bag also at no additional cost.
Accessories are usually best purchased at the same time as your dress as it is advisable to see the full picture together. Often accessories can seem as if they will co-ordinate but when put against the dress the look is all wrong.
