We offer a sample loan service for all our dresses. This is ideal for those who are unable to visit our home showroom in Putney and gives you and your bridesmaids the opportunity to try on our dresses before buying.
We charge a fee (starting from £16.99) to cover postage of the dresses from us to you.
Once you have received the dresses, you can try them on and decide which ones you like. Sarah (our founder) can be available to have a phone call or one-to-one free video consultation with you via Zoom to discuss the dresses, help you take measurements and any alterations you might want.
Once you have finished with the dresses, send them back to us using your local post office using Royal Mail Special Delivery. If you are unable to visit the post office, we can arrange for our courier to collect the dresses from you at extra cost, and we can let you know how much this will be depending on where you are in the world.
How to book our sample loan service
- Complete the enquiry form on our enquiry page page and list the dresses, colours and sizes you would like to loan. Alternatively, if you're not sure which dresses you would like, then Sarah can discuss this with you.
- Sarah will contact you to discuss the dresses and let you know rough timeframe as to when the dresses will be available. Please note that we do not have every dress in every size and other customers may have them at that time, so there could be a wait. We're relient of customers sending them back quickly but sometimes issues arise which will cause delays which are out of our hands.
- If you wish to go ahead, Michael will send you an invoice so that you can pay for the service. Once you have paid, this will get you in the queue for your requested dresses.
Prices for loan and postage of dresses to your address (does not include return postage price):
* Please note that if you are requesting a number of dresses to these locations, we may need to increase the postage costs to cover the extra weight and subsequent extra carriage cost. We will advise you prior to you paying for the sample service.
** Unfortunately, due to Brexit and subsequent increased burden on customs declarations, we are unable to send to these locations as it now requires customers to pay a customs fee (except Northern Ireland) in addition to our sample service fee. We can still send dresses to these locations, however it can only be one dress at a time otherwise customs fees can be quite high - these will be treated on a case-by-case basis. What has worked for some customers is to buy a dress from us and then have the dress tailered by a local seamstress in their area - we have customers all over the world doing this, include Australia, Canada, USA, Singapore and more - we're happy to advise you - just contact us.
Before trying on the dresses
Please remove any makeup and jewellery you may be wearing as this will ensure you do not stain or damage the fabric.
Lastly, enjoy the experience
Trying on dresses for your special day is an exciting part of the run up to your wedding. So enjoy the experience, and we hope that even if you don't choose our dresses, that it gives you some inspiration to continue your search.
Love, Sarah & Mike xx
