How to find the Perfect Bridal Gown

Whilst staying safe

Brides are now wondering, Is it safe to venture to bridal shops for a wedding dress?
Find out what wedding dress shops in Sunderland are recommending to their customers, and what they
are doing to make them feel safe and secure whilst shopping for their wedding gown this year.

Book a Virtual Bridal Consultation – Virtual appointments allow you to work one-to-one with a bridal stylist to find THE DRESS without you having to leave your house!

Before your appointment, take a look at Pinterest galleries to find which styles you like. Send messages with the gown names you’d like to see, and they will make sure it’s all ready for you to see up close during your virtual appointment.

You will be working one-on-one with a bridal stylist who’ll be very knowledgeable about all their bridal wear. Your stylist will get to know your personal taste as well as the vibe you are going for with your wedding. Your stylist will take you up close and personal with their mannequins, so you can see exactly how your pre-selected wedding gown looks. Your stylist can also show you a selection of other dresses that they think may look good on you, as well as answer any questions you may have.

After you’ve had a chance to reflect on the stunning gowns you’ve just seen during your first virtual bridal consultation, you’ll have the option of having up to three gowns delivered to your home for you to try on. You will be given the opportunity to schedule a second virtual bridal appointment with your stylist, during which your stylist will guide you through the process of trying the wedding gowns on.

You’ve done your homework, consulted with a professional bridal stylist, and are now sitting in your living room in your dream wedding gown. You know this is the one, so you get to tell your stylist yes over zoom! It’s time to get out the glass of bubbly and take as many photos as possible!

After you’ve decided to say yes, you’ll need to take your measurements. Don’t worry, your stylist will walk you through every move. They will go over the best size gown to order for you once they have your precise measurements.


After you say yes, your dress will be ordered for you. You can either come into the shop to meet your dress in person, or it can be sent to your front door.
