What is your size range?
Our vintage wedding dresses are between UK sizes 6-14/16

Does each dress come in different sizes?
No, as each dress is a unique one of vintage piece it only comes in the size that we have it in. We cannot order the same dress in another size.

If I love a dress but it's not my size can it be made bigger or smaller? 
All of our dresses can easily be altered down to be made smaller and it’s usually possible for a dress to be be altered up in size and made bigger but it always depends on the structure of the dress in question. We are very creative and we know a few tricks of the trade to try and make this happen for you. We will always advise you at your appointment if this can be done or not.

Do I take away my dress on the day that I buy it?
Yes! That’s the beauty of Vintage Lane Bridal, your dress is all yours to take away on the day, so no waiting around if you are getting married soon!

What if my dress needs alterations?
That's not a problem at all. We don't have an in-house alteration service but we can recommend a great local seamstress who has many years of experience and is very reasonable should your dress need any changes.

Can I bring people with me to my appointment?
Yes of course, we ask that you bring a maximum of 2 guests (3 people in total including the bride).

What happens at my appointment?
We allow 1 hour for our appointments in this time we aim to give you and your guests the best experience possible. We will have a friendly chat while we browse through our collection of vintage gowns and then you can choose the dresses you would like to try on and come out and show your guests. Our appointments are very low key, friendly and fun! 

Do you offer refunds?
We don't offer refunds but we do offer a 7 day exchange or credit note policy. A credit note is valid for 12 months. If exchanging an item any difference in cost will be given in credit note form.

Do I need to bring anything with me?
Just yourself! You are welcome to bring along shoes and it's always best, if possible, to wear white or nude underwear (but it's not a necessity).

How many dresses can I try on?
We recommend trying on a maximum of 6/7 dresses as it can become quite confusing if trying on more but of course (time allowing) we would never say no to an extra one 


Do you buy wedding dresses off the general public?

We only buy original vintage wedding dresses from the 1920s to 1970s we DO NOT buy Modern Secondhand or New Wedding Dresses
