At Bride & Co, we understand that you might have lots of questions whilst shopping for your perfect wedding dress! To help, here are the answers to frequently asked questions by real brides!


Do I need to book a bridal appointment?


At Bride & Co we offer private one to one appointments which can be booked by contacting us via email or over the phone. Choosing your perfect wedding dress is a magical experience to be shared with close family and friends, which is why we request that every bride to be contacts us in advance to secure their exclusive appointment.

How can I book my bridal appointment?

You can book an appointment by contacting us either over the phone on 01482 341622 or contacting us online by clicking here. Whilst we do have general opening hours, we understand that with work and child commitments, our opening times may not suit your diary. We are more than happy to open the boutique outside of general hours to make your wedding dress experience as stress free as possible. 

What should I expect from my appointment?

We allow 1 hour, 15 minutes per appointment, which will give you plenty of time to have a browse of our beautiful wedding dresses, have a glass of bubbly and try on your dream gown. You are more than welcome to book a second appointment if you require further advice and guidance from our expert bridal consultants.    

Can family and friends come with me to Bride & Co?

Of course, any friends and family are more than welcome to join you on the appointment, after all it’s your special experience. We would however, advise that you only bring those closest to you and whose opinions you trust.

Do I need to bring anything to my appointment?

We would advise that you bring a strapless bra and nude coloured underwear to your initial bridal appointment. If you are a new bride looking for advice and guidance on the perfect dress, you may want to try on a few different styles of designer dresses. You could also bring with you any pictures/magazine clippings of the gowns you love the most.   

Can I take photographs at my appointment?

Seeing the bride walk down the aisle for the first time is such a special moment, which is why we advise that you don’t take any photos of your wedding dress before the big day. This will make sure you can keep the gown a surprise for all your excited guests.

Where is Bride & Co located?

Bride & Co is located on the beautiful grounds of Willerby Manor Hotel. Our boutique is positioned at the front of the building, adjacent to plentiful parking spaces. Willerby Manor Hotel does have a brasserie if you are wanting a bite to eat or a bottle of champagne to celebrate finding your dream wedding dress, following your initial appointment with us.

If you have any other questions for our bridal experts, please do not hesitate to contact us and book in your exclusive one to one appointment today.   

We only ever take one appointment at a time, so you will have the boutique to yourself with your chosen friends and family, for the upmost privacy to make your wedding dress shopping experience perfect.
