Wedding dress shopping post Coronavirus - everything you need to know to find your dress.

I’ve had a lot of brides get in touch with me recently worried about wedding dress shopping once we’re out the other side of Coronavirus. If you have any concerns about the time you have to find ’the one’ and what the process will be read on, and trust me that, you’ll feel much better and more relaxed afterwards.

First things first, don’t panic. I will provide a solution to your problem. If you don’t believe me, have a read of what my brides have said:

Becky was outstanding in her communication, research and advice, straight from initial contact. I was impressed that where other bridal boutiques were unable to find ‘my dress’, Becky made it a personal mission to go above and beyond by liaising with the designer to locate and source the dress. Any nerves I had about trying on dresses were put to rest by Becky’s fun, personable and professional manner – my appointment felt special, I felt special and I am so pleased that Becky and Lavelle Bridal Couture are part of my wedding journey! I would whole-heartedly recommend future brides consult with Becky to find their dream dress x

Wedding Dress Shopping - When will I be able to have an appointment?

So the short answer to this is that I don’t actually know, but that’s no reason to panic. As with most other people in the country at the moment I’m following the advice from the government and as soon as I can re-open the shop I will do.


What you can do whilst in this period of uncertainty is get yourself ready for your appointment. Have a look online, Pinterest and Instagram are great for this. Save ideas of dresses that you like the look of to a board or collection. I love looking through ideas with brides. Don’t worry, this doesn’t necessarily mean that this is the dress that you‘ll end up with. It does however give us a great starting point.

You can also start creating boards for the bridal look that you want to go for. For example how are you thinking of having you hair, makeup, what style flowers are you choosing, do you know what your bridesmaids might wear?

You can also sign up to have exclusive access to my diary before anyone else. Just fill out your details and as soon as I’m able to open again, you’ll be the first to know and I can get you booked in!

Wedding Dress Shopping - What about ordering my dress? Will it be too late?

No, it’s never too late and there’s always a solution.

When you order your dress with me at Lavelle Bridal Couture I will make sure you have it in plenty of time before your wedding day.
