We understand that a wedding dress appointment can be quite a new and perhaps daunting experience for most, we are here to help guide you through it all - making it as easy and seamless as possible!

To make sure we can give each bride our full attention and care, we can only see brides who have booked an appointment beforehand. 

We ask for a booking fee for a first appointment. We are a relatively small operation here at The Loop and this nominal booking fee pays for our styling and tailoring expertise, as well of course of the full luxury of trying as many of our dresses on as you like. Sadly, we have also experienced many brides not showing up for appointments, which is soul destroying for a young business like ours. Moreover, as much as we always like to make our fittings fun, we also want them to be productive and purposeful!

  • The first appointment with us is £20 for an hour
  • Any repeat appointment is free (30 minutes)
  • Please email us at to schedule an appointment
  • This booking fee will be reimbursed to you if you buy a dress with us
  • If you need to cancel your 1st appointment, we will of course refund the fee as long as you notify us at least 24 hours before your appointment.


We offer tailoring as a part of our services here at The Loop. We have a tailor who we trust and adore! However, we understand that people might like to go elsewhere and/or have their own personal tailors already. As always, we remain flexible and accommodating to make all requests happen.

As of January 2024, The Loop has updated its tailoring process, rates and estimates.
Tailoring Appointments will cost £100 as a flat rate:

  • This rate includes our Tailor’s call out fee, The Loop’s stylistic guidance and tailoring support and of course, our tailor’s expertise.
  • This £100 fee includes two fitting appointments. Any further appointments beyond these two initial fittings, will be an additional £50 to the overall invoice.
  • On top of this Tailoring Appointment Cost will be the tailoring costs for the amendments made.
  • We are able to provide top line estimates of what some adjustments might cost, if you would like a more accurate estimate, we can of course ask our Tailor to provide a quote.
  • We always operate on a case by case basis, and are always flexible and accommodating to suit each client’s needs.
  • Please ask us for tailoring estimates if you would like to see them.

Thank you, The Loop x
