I get it, how do you know what your budget is? what is realistic to get the gown I love?
So basically there are hundreds of dresses in the world – some will be like that Primark top you just bought – looked nice but was uncomfy fabric, itched a bit and shrunk as soon as you washed it. Others will be like that good Karen Millen dress you bought – feels amazing on, fits brilliantly and makes you feel soooo confident!
We are all about the latter. Our designers have been specifically chosen for their flattering silhouettes, beautiful fabrics but most importantly the internal structure – I tell most brides that this is the bit you’re paying for – they suck you in, in all the right places and make you feel amazing. They also make you look about two sizes smaller (for real), give you a bust where needed and add shape, shape and more shape! We have sample sizes 10-24 in store for you to try so no squeezing into dresses that are way too small (unless you want to!).
Most of the designers we stock start from £1000 with the average gown price being around £1600 – you also have to think about underskirts, veils, accessories, travel packages if you are going abroad, and your alterations. Taking all of this into account, if you realistically feel you have a budget of £1000 or more then our made to order department is probably the best option for you.

You need to feel like you are making more than just a purchase – this isn’t just a random Saturday night party dress
Made to Order basically means that you will come in store and try on our ‘sample’ gowns, and when you decide on the style that you love, you will have the opportunity to order in a brand new gown in your chosen size, colour and custom options. Custom options will vary from each designer but we can offer things such as zip or lace up backs, custom lengths, additional fabrics to make straps & neckline adjustments, so your DREAM DRESS is specific to you only! (Reminder custom gowns can take up to 12 months, so you need to make sure you have enough time to order – please let us know if you want a made to order gown but have less time)
We understand that this is A LOT of money, but we are also aware that it’s a really important part of your day. Maybe you wont remember the candy cart you hired, but you certainly will remember your bridal gown! We actively encourage every bride to ‘be the best you’ at Bijoux. This means feeling like you have chosen a gown that shows off your best bits, hides the bits you are not so fussed on and just looking like an amazing version of you on the day!
You need to feel like you are making more than just a purchase – this isn’t just a random Saturday night party dress its your DREAM DRESS, the one you have waited a lifetime to find and one that you will have a lifetime of memories to look back on. We want to make sure that you and your bridal party really are cared for from the minute you book your appointment, to the day you collect your gown and beyond!
