It really is never too early to buy, provided you are confident with your choice. But do remember that your gown is made especially for you and can take up to six months to arrive with us and you must allow time for fittings and alterations on top of this. Our helpful table below shows you the latest dates for ordering.
Whilst your wedding may feel a whole world away at the moment, the closer you get to the big day the more things you will have to think about, so if you know your gown is all in hand well in advance, it’s just one less thing to worry about and there’s nothing worse than feeling that you are being hurried into making a rush decision, so do give yourself plenty of time if you can.

Our gowns start at £749, which is less than many dresses you’ll find at Wed2Be and other ‘off the peg’ retailers. However, unlike these chains we only stock gowns from genuine bridal designers. The misconception that this makes them more expensive is an unfortunate one. All of our gowns are expertly designed, cut and carefully handmade to give the best possible quality for our brides. They are worked on by expert seamstresses who are paid according to their quality of work and this can be expensive. However, here at Pure we price our gowns fairly which means our brides don’t pay more for our gowns than is right. We don’t include the 1-1 service that we provide in our prices, the sumptuous private bridal areas that our brides have the use of, the alterations service we offer or the steaming and preparation of your personally handmade gown. You simply pay the right price for your gown and all of the other benefits that you receive by buying from a local independent retailer are just part of the service we expect to offer you, our brides. Our service to you doesn’t end when you buy your dress, in fact, that’s just where it begins! After all, you’re buying possibly the most important item of clothing you’ll ever wear, you deserve to look and feel amazing on your wedding day, and that’s what we’re all about here at Pure…..making you FEEL amazing…from start to finish…and everywhere in between!
