  • Please bring the underwear garments you intend to wear on your wedding day to your first and subsequent fittings; the correct bra is essential as the dress will be fitted around it. Shoes must also be brought if the dress needs to be hemmed. If this is not possible please at least bring shoes of the same height. 

  • Please wear minimal make up to avoid soiling your dress.

  • We will take complete measurements at the preliminary fitting and the dress will be altered in accordance with these measurements. C Simpson & Company Tailoring & Design shall not be liable for any changes in the measurements due to weight fluctuations or pregnancy and a charge will apply if the work needs to be done to accommodate these variations.
