At Catherine Deane, we are renowned for looks that last and leave lasting impressions, and we have taken that up a notch with our Virtual Showroom and a wide range of unique designer wedding separates and dresses. Whether you're in London seeking a wedding dress showroom or you’re a bride without time on her hands, Catherine Deane has got you covered! In this comprehensive guide, we'll take you through the magical journey of finding your dream wedding dress, from booking your appointment to exploring the exclusive collection.
Finding your perfect wedding dress begins with an appointment at our Virtual Showroom. Don't worry if you can't visit a physical store; with our advanced virtual setup, you can have an equally-fitting experience from home. The showroom provides an immersive and personalised experience that allows you to explore our stunning collection of wedding gowns and dresses at your convenience. Visit our Bridal Appointment page to book your appointment and start your journey.
Plan From Head To Toe
Begin your search for the perfect wedding dress approximately one year before your wedding date. This gives you ample time to explore various styles and find the one that truly speaks to your heart. Before your appointment, browse our Catherine Deane online store to get an idea of the styles that catch your eye. Fill out the form before your appointment and provide us with as much information as possible. This allows our stylist to prepare adequately and focus on what's essential to you. Keep a tape measure handy if we need to take your measurements during the virtual appointment.
Having some preferences in mind will help our experienced stylists curate a personalised selection for you. Before your virtual appointment, have an idea of the items you'd like to discuss with the stylist. This helps us tailor the session to your needs.
Colour Me Couture
Prepare a general idea of your wedding theme and colour palette. This information can assist our stylists in recommending gowns that align with your vision.
Keep an open mind during your appointment. Brides often surprise themselves by choosing a gown they had yet to consider initially.
Bridal Pro Tips
Bring a hair band or a hair clip in case you want to tie your hair up and get the full effect of trying on different dresses. Also, wearing nude seamless underwear ensures you can focus solely on the dress's beauty.
Please remove any fake tan before trying dresses to protect our gowns and create a flawless experience.
Choose Your Tribe Wisely
While we want you to feel supported, it's best to bring up to three people whose opinions you truly value. This ensures a more intimate and stress-free environment during your appointment.
Show-Up, Showroom, Chic Shopping
When you step into our showroom, you'll be warmly welcomed by one of our highly experienced stylists. Enjoy a serene atmosphere with breathtaking views of the river, where the gentle sound of water and waves create an oasis of calm, instantly putting you at ease. Relax and let the magic unfold as we begin this joyous journey together.
Connect with Ease
For our brides unable to visit our physical showroom, we offer virtual appointments that capture the essence of our in-person experience. To make the most of your virtual consultation, follow these simple steps:
Ensure you can access our website or use a tablet during the Zoom call. This lets you visually browse the collection with our stylist, making the virtual experience more engaging.
Follow-Up Bridal Support
After your virtual appointment, we'll send you a follow-up email with all the styles and information discussed, making it easier to remember and review.
As the big day approaches, we want to ensure everything is perfect for you. Here are some essential details to consider:
Alteration specialists can accommodate quick modifications if necessary. Typically, we aim for a 4-6 week lead time for alterations.
Some dresses may need to be delivered from a stock location, which can take up to 14 days to arrive. To avoid disappointment, consider this timeframe when planning your dress selection.
If you fall in love with a gown and your wedding is approaching soon, don't hesitate! Our stock items can sell out quickly, and we want to ensure you get the dress you've always dreamed of.
Your journey to vibrant beauty with Catherine Deane awaits, and we can't wait to be a part of your special day. Let our Virtual Showroom and expert tips make your wedding dress shopping experience a cherished memory filled with joy and enchantment.
So, book your bridal appointment today and let the magic unfold as you step into a world of breathtaking designs and warm hospitality. Visit our Bridal Appointment page to schedule your visit or virtual consultation. Trust us to make you feel welcomed, cherished, and radiant as you find the dress that reflects your unique beauty.
