Our opening hours are:
10am to 5pm, Monday - Saturday


Viewing Appointments: We recommend booking viewing appointments between nine and twelve months before your wedding day, with the intention of placing your order six to nine months before. This length of time will comfortably allow for the reservation of your gown’s fabrics and the scheduling of the making in our workrooms. We can accommodate shorter timescales though there may be fabric choice implications.

Trying On: Inviting family members or close friends to accompany you can make the appointment more relaxed and fun for you, but please let us know if you wish to bring more than two people so that we can offer an appropriate appointment. Take full advantage of our sales consultant’s knowledge and experience to understand all of the dress shapes and fabrics available; and do be prepared to try on her suggestions as many stunning gowns have little ‘hanger appeal’. Please advise us if you plan to wear a family heirloom veil, tiara or jewelry as this may well affect our design suggestions.

Ordering your Gown: Once you have decided on the style and the fabric, you will be quoted a price that includes all fittings and alterations. If Sassi feels a toile – a calico bodice prefit –  is necessary, this will be included in the price. Additional charges will only be incurred if you later wish to make design changes or your shape or weight alters after being measured. At this point we will book in your measuring appointment - please advise us if you are on a weight loss plan - and make a date for your first dress fitting.

Fitting Appointments: You will need to bring your wedding shoes and any specialist lingerie to the first and all subsequent fittings. Please be sparing with make-up on fitting days and no fake tan! On average there will be two fittings and a final fitting but a bespoke gown will require more.

The boutique opening times are 10.00 until 5.00 on Mondays to Saturdays. Viewing appointments on Saturdays need to be booked 2 to 3 weeks ahead. To make an appointment please email or telephone 01823 256308.

We hope you find this helpful and informative.
