Frequently Asked Questions

When should I start looking?

​The designers we work with take approximately 6­ to 8 months to deliver.
You should build in 4­ to 6weeks after the dress arrives and some extra time for accessory appointments.
We therefore suggest that you start looking approximately 18 months prior to your wedding so that you have time to visit and decide without being rushed.

Do I need an appointment?

To ensure that you receive the best possible level of service we recommend booking your appointment as soon as you have set the date for your wedding as this will give you plenty of time to find your dream dress and have it fitted perfectly.

Our Saturday appointments are incredibly busy and we do suggest you book an appointment 3 to ­4 weeks in advance if at all possible.
We operate a waiting list on Saturdays and do occasionally have last minute cancellations so we will do our best to fit you in if we can!
We will always be happy to welcome you though – even without an appointment.

What to expect?

We find out a bit about you, your wedding venue and theme and this is discussed with one of our bridal stylists.
You will then be able to enjoy trying on your chosen Gowns in our Luxurious fitting rooms with Large Mirrors, and elegant Showroom.
During your appointment, with your agreement, our stylists will suggest dresses that they feel will flatter your shape and encourage you to try these on.
We know our dresses and how they fit on the body and this is often not recognisable to you on a hanger.

We allow approx. one to one and a half and a half hours for all first appointments.
(except on Saturdays)
This gives us plenty of time to get to know you and to find out all about your wedding.
It also allows lots of time for you to try on our beautiful Gowns

We look forward to meeting you at Love & Cherish Bridal Boutique

What should I wear?

​Although it would be sensible to wear a strapless bra in either white or nude we do want you to be comfortable so whatever you would usually wear is fine and we can always remove straps or tuck them in.
We suggest you bring a hair clip or scrunchies etc. as some dresses you select may have a neckline that would suit your hair up.

Please ensure you do not wear fake tan as we like to ensure the dresses are kept beautiful for all our brides to try on and fake tan does not come off the fabric We have a small platform for you to stand on to lift the length of the dresses off the floor so at this stage you do not need shoes.

Who should I bring?

We want to devote our attention to looking after you and helping you find your perfect dress so, whilst it is an important decision and you do want advice from others, we suggest you bring two to three guests.

Close family and a friend will always be truthful with you and enjoy the experience with you.
Too many opinions can cause you confusion and distract you from taking in the details of each dress.
We do welcome children at Love & Cherish Bridal, but in order for you to relax and not be worried about them
outside the fitting room it is devisable to bring someone who can look after them. Unfortunately we do not have baby changing facilities.


Our dresses start from approx. £500 to £2500, and we usually have sample offer Gowns from £250


Our Gowns are available to order from size US 2 to US 32


There is free parking on the car park opposite Love & Cherish
There are also numerous lovely places for lunch, cocktails or
simply a coffee within minutes of the shop and you may wish to visit before or after your appointment.
