Booking your appointment…
At Caroline Clark Bridal Boutiques we are pleased to offer completely private appointments, this ensures you are only the bride trying on dresses at any one time, and allows us to focus on you and creating your perfect wedding day look.
We request all appointments are booked in advance if possible, it also means Caroline and the consultants can prepare the boutique for you to have a fantastic time and pop the kettle on (and pop the fizz on ice)!
If you are unable to book in advance and require an appointment as soon as possible, please phone us and we will try our best to fit you in.
Your private appointment will last around two hours, which gives you the chance to try on a selection of our gorgeous gowns. Already have some favourite dresses? We would love to see the photos.
There is a small consultation charge of £25 for our Sunday appointments only. This charge is fully refunded against your dress purchase with no time limit.
We know life can get very busy, and if you wish to cancel your wedding dress appointment or bridesmaid appointment please let us know in advance. This way we will be able to offer another a bride our assistance.
If you are unable to attend your Sunday appointment we ask for 48 hours notice of cancellation.
Bridal dress shopping can be very exciting and we understand you may wish to share the experience with friends and family, and we love meeting Mums and bridesmaids! However we are only a small boutique and we request you bring a maximum of three guests per appointment as too many opinions can cause confusion.
Try not to bring too many people with you as it can be confusing to hear too many opinions. Bring your friends and maids, and future in-laws, whenever you have narrowed your selection down.
If you wish to come alone Caroline and the team will be able to offer ideas and any advice you require.
Items to bring
We suggest you wear nude or ivory underwear if possible, we often find black bra cam distract from the wedding dress! We also like to keep our dresses as lovely as possible and request you are sparing with your fake tan.
We have plenty of shoes in the boutique to try on, if you already have your wedding shoes feel free to bring them with you.
We have a range of samples in various sizes, during your appointment our consultants will use their skills to show how the dress will fit when it is in your size.
Late Night Appointments
Late night appointments are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays until 8pm by appointment only.
Please note, we are normally fully booked up to one week in advance. If you have a particular time and date in mind, please contact us as soon as possible. We will always try our hardest to fit you in.
We look forward to welcoming you to the boutique and having some fun finding your perfect wedding dress.
