FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need to book an appointment?
YES... We do offer exclusivity for our VIP appointments so we always ask our brides to call or book online. We are open 7 days a week from 9:00am - 5:00pm
Where is your Boutique?
Our Boutique is situated near Battle in East Sussex just off A21. There is plenty of free parking around us and if you are travelling by train then the nearest stations are Robertsbride and Battle which are just a 5 minutes taxi drive away.
What is your price range?
Our dresses start from approximately £1000 - £3000. The majority of our gowns are under £1895.
How many guests can I bring to my appointment?
Bring the person/s whose opinion you most value. We recommend this option as too many varying opinions can become confusing. We would advise not to have more than three people in attendance. Although we are happy for you to bring as many guests as you wish.
What can I expect from my appointment?
When you book an appointment at Wild Flora, your appointment will be one to one with a consultant. We will welcome you in and explain how the dresses are laid out. We will offer refreshments, and leave you to look around the boutique with your guests. Shortly later we will come and run through some of the dresses you wish to try and go from there.
I am getting married in less than 4 months
The pressure is on but keep calm, we have in the past managed to get dresses in as little as one week and have several options for you. One is to buy straight from our 'off the peg' dresses where you can take the dress away that day. A second option is to see if our designers have any stock in their warehouses that we can have. Lastly the majority of our designers offer a fast track service for an additional fee.
Do you include alterations?
We have several seamstresses we work alongside and highly recommend to all our clients. It is though up to the client if they wish to find an alternative seamstress. The seamstresses are independent of Wild Flora, so after your first fitting with them they will organise all future fittings in their diaries and arrange final fits to ensure your dress fits you perfectly.
How long does an appointment last?
We allow up to 2 hours for weekday appointments. Saturday & Sunday appointments are 1 hour 30 mins. We also offer VIP appointments which give you a 2 hour appointment in the boutique to take your time.
What is your VIP boutique experience?
Want to make your appointment a magical experience for you and your guests to treasure?
How far in advance should I start looking for my dress?
We recommend having your wedding date and venue booked before you begin your search for a dress. It is important to have the date and location established so you can envision the wedding’s overall look. Dresses typically take four to six months to arrive in our boutique, and alterations generally require a further few months. We recommentd to start shopping about 9 to 18 months in advance to ensure you have plenty of time to make up your mind without any stress!
What dress sizes and designers do you offer?
The sample gowns in the shop range from a UK 8-20 and vary with each designer. The majority of the samples are in 12-14. We have a range of equipment we can use to show how the dress will look if it is not in your size to try.
How should I prepare for my appointment?
We ask that you wear limited makeup and tanning products to reduce any marks to the dresses. If you can wear nude underwear along with a strapless bra, this will give you a better effect with the dresses. We do have shoes available here to try with the dresses, but your welcome to bring any accessories with you.
