There’s so much more to being a Bridal Dresser than just helping the bride into her dress. Whether you are familiar with what we do or not, here are 11 reasons to hire a bridal dresser to make your big day that extra bit special and far more relaxing!
#1 The bridesmaids don’t have to fret about getting you into that dress!
The dress – it’s the one thing that really has to be perfect! Your girls know this, so asking them to help you into your bridal gown (especially if they have never had any experience before) could be quite worrying for them. Having dressed literally hundreds of brides in many different dress styles over the years, we really are pros at what we do. We’ve seen it all, know how to do up the most complex of fastenings and can do so in good time, leaving you and your girls to relax and have fun!

#2 Mum will be more relaxed knowing there’s an extra pair of hands
It’s only natural for your mum to feel anxious on your wedding day – she wants everything to be perfect for her little girl! Having that extra pair of hands will help to put her mind to rest, that it’s not all up to her to manage the bridal party on the morning of the wedding!
#4 You’ll have someone on hand to fix any dress malfunctions
From missing buttons to broken dress straps and undone hems – it may feel like the end of the world on your wedding day, but these minor dress malfunctions will be fixed before you know it!
#5 Any last minute steaming or ironing is sorted
Don’t spend the morning of your wedding doing chores! Hand the steamer over to your bridal dresser who will perfectly press any outfits needed for the day.
#6 Don’t worry about that stubborn necklace fastening
It’s a gift from your Grandmother and you absolutely adore it, but damn that fastening is difficult! Now try fastening it after a glass or two of Prosecco. As much as we love a glass of fizz we won’t be drinking on your big day, giving us the steady hands and sharp focus to tackle your bling!
#7 No one has to worry about anyone but themselves
With a Bridal Dresser around to help everyone get dressed, there’s no need to worry about anyone but yourself! Giving you the freedom and opportunity to relax and enjoy the moment!
#8 We can offer invaluable advice about your dress throughout the day
From when to put the dress on and how, to loosen the lace up back before food and how to bustle the train; we have invaluable advice on how to look and feel the best in your dress throughout the day.
#9 Your Prosecco will remain topped up (but we’ll make sure you don’t over do it)
The morning of the wedding wouldn’t be complete without a glass or two of bubbles, but in all the excitement, we all know how easy it is to have a little too much without realising it! We’ll make sure your glass is topped up, but can also keep an eye on how much everyone is drinking to ensure you’re all gliding and not stumbling down the aisle!
#10 You will look your best in the ‘getting ready’ photographs
If you choose to have a photographer present on the morning of the wedding capturing the getting ready process, a bridal dresser is a fab person to have around to make sure that everyone is looking their best and the train is sitting perfectly!
#11 It’s good to have a neutral person on hand if emotions run high
Whilst it’s rare for arguments to happen on the morning of the wedding, it’s not uncommon for nerves and anxiety to get the better of people. Having a neutral mediator on hand to diffuse tense situations is always a plus!
#12 it’s like having a mini wedding planner on the morning of your wedding!
