Feel free to bring along some heels that are of a height similar to ones you may wear on your big day. There are shoes available in the changing room, however these may not be your size/style/preferred height, thus never as comfy as your own!

We ask that in order to prevent tan marks and blemishes on dresses, that you have minimal make up and are fake-tan free!

Also it is helpful to bring the right underwear, maybe a well fitted bra with detachable straps to suit the strapless dresses.

Keep in mind, we are here to advise, assist and ensure your visit is a fun and informative experience, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions throughout your appointment!

Can I bring Somebody with me to my Appointment?

We know how important it is to have friends/family by your side to advise and support when making such big decision! Do feel free to bring a close friend/family member or two whose opinion you value, however any more than three people is not advisable.

I have Concerns about People knowing that I Purchased a Pre-loved Wedding Gown!

At Timeless Bridalwear we pride ourselves on discretion.  Operating on an appointment only basis, all viewings are exclusive which guarantees privacy and peace of mind. A bride will not meet another bride at her appointment.

Remember though, only about 20% of our gowns have been worn,the majority are brand new!

No!

The majority of our dresses in stock have not been worn. We stock dresses at a discount from a variety of boutiques
Also we stock gowns that a bride has not worn. These dresses are from individuals who lovingly chose their dress but for various reasons have decided not to wear that particular gown.

Luckily for you this enables the opportunity for you to find your dream dress at a HUGE discount from its original price!

Rest assured that if you fall in love with a pre-worn dress, you are not compromising on quality, elegance or sophistication – they are all beautiful!

As we sell the dresses for our clients, the prices are set by the the owner and are completely at their discretion. Timeless Bridalwear can advise on a reasonable and fair sale price, but the pricing is ultimately at the seller’s discretion.

We encourage you to try on various styles and designs.  It is also advisable to explore different styles and designs to know what best suits your shape.

Why do Brides Sell their Wedding Dresses?

There are many reasons!

The majority of our dresses are brand new and never worn! Some brides change their mind on style or design. Plans can change from engagement date to wedding day – e.g. brides decide to have their wedding abroad and the dress is too heavy for a sun wedding.

Today’s modern brides would rather share their cherished gown with another happy bride and allow her to feel as special as they did on their big day. The tradition of a bride saving her wedding dress for their daughter’s christening is slowly disappearing as brides warm to the idea of recouping some of the original cost!
