  • Can I purchase gift vouchers online or in person?
    Yes, you can buy gift vouchers both online and in person at Pretty Panache.
  • How do you determine the dress size for brides?
    We take measurements of each bride and select the closest dress size based on the size chart that would fit them best. Please note that all our dresses are made to order, not ready to send, which is why they take some time.
  • Do you offer plus-size wedding dresses?
    Yes, we take pride in offering a diverse range of bridal gowns, including plus-size options, to ensure that every bride can find her perfect dress. Our experienced bridal stylists are here to assist you in finding the dress that fits your unique style and size beautifully.
  • Tell me more about the alteration process.
    Alterations typically begin about 6-8 weeks before your wedding date. You'll have 2-3 fittings to ensure the perfect fit. The dress will be collected the day before your wedding or at a time that suits you best. We'll provide a white dress cover, and the dress will be steamed for your special day.
  • Can I book a VIP appointment, and what does it include?
    Yes, we offer VIP appointments. These appointments are 2 hours long and include Prosecco and refreshments. The cost is £30 for the bride and two guests, with an additional £10 per extra guest.
  • What happens during a trying-on appointment, and how does the ordering process work?
    During trying-on appointments, brides have the opportunity to browse our selection with their bridal party and select as many dresses as they'd like to try on. We usually recommend choosing one of each style, especially if you're unsure. Accessories, veils, and shoes are also available to complete the look. If you decide to place an order during the appointment, a 50% deposit is required. The final balance is paid when the dress arrives in-store, typically 6-8 months before the wedding date. The dress is stored here until the fitting process begins, which is usually 6-8 weeks before your wedding date.
  • Can I book combined bride and bridesmaids appointments?
    While we prefer these appointments to be 2.5 hours long rather than 3 hours, we can accommodate your request. The availability for combined appointments remains the same as our regular appointments.
  • How can I book first and second fittings?
    First and second fittings can be booked by Pretty Panache staff members only. First fittings last 45 minutes, with an additional 15 minutes for necessary adjustments. Second fittings follow the same time frame. Collection appointments are 15 minutes long, and no additional time is needed for them. Ideally, weekday appointments are preferred for fittings, as we like to reserve Saturdays for new brides. However, we can schedule fittings on Saturdays if needed.
  • Can I bring children to the appointments?
    We understand that finding the perfect dress can be a family affair. We kindly ask that children under the age of 14 only accompany you if they are being fitted for a dress. Our aim is to provide a comfortable and focused experience for all brides and their bridal parties during their appointments.

  • How can I reserve merchandise and what is the cancellation policy for reservations?
