Are the dresses genuine?
Yes. We don’t import cheap copies from China. Instead we source designer and vintage gowns, ensuring they’re immaculate. You are always welcome to come and visit and see for yourself.
Are all your dresses second hand?
No. We have preloved dresses as well as new ones. We will always be upfront about which are preloved and which are new.
Where do you get your dresses from?
Our dresses have been passed on from brides who no longer require their dresses or we have sourced them from across the UK.
Are the preloved wedding dresses in good condition?
Yes. Always. They’ve been professionally cleaned and if they’re not immaculate,they wouldn’t be at Bijou.
How do you handle alterations?
We have a professional seamstress who we recommend. Your fittings will be at Bijou Boutique.
What sizes do you stock?
We stock a range of sizes, and what we have in varies depending on the sock we have in at the time. Please contact us to discuss.
Is there anything I need to know before coming in?
We kindly ask you not to wear makeup when coming in to try on, just to keep our dresses in immaculate condition.
Do I have to book an appointment to come and try the dresses on?
Yes, we open by appointment only so you get the attention you deserve.
Is there parking near you?
Yes, we have ample free parking.
Will you buy my dress back from me?
Potentially. This largely depends on the alternations that have been made. We will happily discuss with you.
I have a dress I would like to sell, would you like to buy it?
Please contact us as much information as possible as well as photos and we can discuss.
