1. WHEN DO I NEED TO PLACE MY ORDER?
We recommend 8 months before your wedding date to ensure that your dress can be delivered on time.
2. WHY DO I NEED TO ORDER SO FAR IN ADVANCE?
Most of the fabrics that are used by our designers are pure silks and satins with hand embellished details. These precious fabrics take a long time to order and so the designers need to know well in advance to ensure they can create your dress. The laws of supply&demand are ever present, even in wedding planning.
3. I’VE ONLY STARTED LOOKING, I DON’T HAVE 8 MONTHS … WHAT DO I DO?
Don’t panic, some of our designers offer a “Rush” order service for a fee. Call us and we can discuss with you which designers may be of interest to you.
4. WHEN SHOULD I START LOOKING FOR MY DRESS?
A million dollar question that is wholly dependent on your shopping style. If you’re prone to snappy, targeted decisions then start looking a couple months prior to ordering your dress. If you like to scope out every option available, then give yourself 4-6 months to look. Remember dress shopping should be one of the highlights of wedding planning, not a chore so plan with your personality in mind.
5. HOW CAN I PURCHASE MY GOWN?
Firstly on the day you plan to buy, don’t drive as we celebrate with a glass of bubbly. A 50% deposit is paid on the day you order and we accept major credit/debit cards (not Amex sorry), cheques or cash. The remaining 50% is due when your dress arrives in, typically 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding day.
6. ARE THERE ADDITIONAL CHARGES?
Alterations are not included in the price of your dress. Typically alteration charges range from €150 to €250 depending on the nature of the work and whether you fluctuate much during the run up to your wedding. Alterations will always be required as every dress will be altered for at least length.
7. WHEN ARE MY MEASUREMENTS TAKEN?
We take your measurements on the day that you order your dress and this will determine the size that is ordered for you. Some designers will allow your measurements to be revisited a couple of months before your dress is delivered – please tell us if this is of interest to you at the time you buy.
8.WHEN DOES MY DRESS ARRIVE?
Typically your dress will arrive in 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding day. On occasions dresses may arrive in closer to your wedding day, don’t panic we always allow time for alterations.
9. CAN WE TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS IN MYRTLE IVORY?
Sorry we don’t allow photographs for many reasons, but most importantly the dress won’t fit you perfectly so an image isn’t a great reminder – focus on how the dress made you feel. We post imagery to our web/facebook/pinterest/Instagram – so there’s oodles of pics to see.
