Wedding Portrait


What to expect at your appointment?

Women in Underwear

What should I wear?                 Do I need a strapless bra?

Nude or white underwear is best.  If you have a strapless bra, you may wish to wear it.

No thongs, please!  Your bottom may be in my face at some point!

You won't need your shoes as we have a fittings podium to give the correct height.

Model with smokey eyes

What about fake tan/make up/hair dos?

Please leave the fake tan, full make up and heavily scented body lotions and perfumes for another day! 


Trying on dresses is hard work, and we want our gowns to stay fresh for other Brides, too!

To keep your trying-on fun, we will ask you to step into most gowns.  It's far easier that way!

Wedding Dress Shopping

How many people can I bring?
Can I bring children?

Fire Regulations permit no more than 3 guests plus the Bride.  Prams can be left in Reception.

You could invite another Bride Tribe to your Collection appointment - you can try your gown on and select your accessories if you haven't already.

Your appointment is all about you, so please leave small children with a sitter and enjoy a bit of time where you're the centre of attention for a change! 

Bride and Groom

Are you a mobility-friendly boutique?

Yes, we are!  Ali's nephew is a wheelchair user, so we know how vital it is to make sure that everyone can enjoy the Blue & Sixpence Experience!


Our location is fully accessible with plenty of disabled parking places, suitable toilets and completely level access to both the building and the boutique.

Blue & Sixpence is designed for ease of movement around the boutique and changing room.

Credit Card Purchase

How do I pay for my gown?  Can I pay in installments?

Take home with you on the day of your appointment. Or spread the cost with our Interest-Free Payment Plans.


We accept:

Blue & Sixpence Payment Plan


BACS transfer

Debit/Credit card


Google Pay

Apple Pay

Up to 12 months,

0% interest payment plans always available. 

Please ask for details.


When should I book?  What about alterations?

Whether you're an Organised Orla or a Last-Minute Lucy, we can help you find your gown!

Ideally, you should shop for your gown once you have confirmed your wedding date and venue. 

Around 12 months before your big day is perfect, as you can use our interest free payment plans.

Do remember that most gowns will need some tailoring and you should allow plenty of time for this.
