How far in advance should I order my wedding dress?


We recommend ordering your wedding dress at least 10 months before your wedding date, with the sweet spot between 12-18 months ahead, to allow sufficient time for your gown to be made and shipped to us, and for you to have fittings, alterations, and any customisations. This ensures that your dress is perfect and ready for your special day.


Our designers take anywhere from 4-10 months to make and deliver your dress to us, we will always work with you to find the right designer that works for your time frame.


Less time than this? Don’t panic! Many of our designers have options for you, including rush orders and inventory stock. We also are pleased to announce the impending arrival of our sister store – The One Bridal Outlet, coming soon to Chester!

Yes, we offer a range of customisation options to ensure your gown fits your vision perfectly. Many of our designers offer custom options to have a one-of-a-kind gown made in production, our Stylists are incredible at bringing your vision to life, with customisations such as an additional sleeve, a modified neckline and custom garment fitting. What’s more, we love doing this; we are the number one Martina Liana custom specialist in the UK!


Post purchase, our skilled ateliers can provide expert alterations to tailor your dress to your specific contours and preferences. We have created our very own “Atelier Guide” which is emailed to you 2 months after you buy your dress which tells you more about our fabulous alterations and atelier services.

Yes, we have an experienced Atelier team working from our very own studio offering bespoke alterations to our gowns. Our alterations packages start from £450 for 2023/2024, with limited alterations slots available.


We can also provide details of several North West and North Wales seamstresses if this would suit your plans or budget better.


We do not alter gowns bought elsewhere, our in house Atelier services are exclusive to our Along Came Eve brides.

If you are using our in-house atelier services, we will see you for your first fitting 9 weeks ahead of the date that you need your dress, whether that’s picking up to take to your parent’s house to get ready the night before, or if you are flying out to a destination ahead of time!

Wedding gowns are made to be altered and taken apart. However, every gown is different, your Stylist will help you decide the best size to order when you choose the dress. Please bear in mind that taking in a dress more than 4 inches, or easing a dress out more than an inch is considered a non-standard alteration and will incur an additional charge.

Yes! You can email or call us to make an appointment to view our accessories collection with a Stylist. As all our private fitting suites are fully stocked with a treasure trove of accessorising delights, we need to make sure you have your very own Stylist available to collect an array for you from throughout the store. We recommend booking an appointment in advance to avoid disappointment if we are unable to accommodate a walk-in appointment.


We also hold quarterly open evening where you can browse and try on any accessories and purchase on the night!

At Along Came Eve, our sole focus is you, the bride! Most of our brides now find their wedding party’s gowns online and in places that have multiple shopping options, such as the nearby Cheshire Oaks or The Trafford Centre.

We work closely with a chosen selection of bridal designers, who we trust to provide the most magical dresses to our brides. Each designer requires us to make a commitment to buying their gowns and we simply cannot stock them all! What we can promise though, is an Aladdin’s cave of bridal gowns, where over 200 gowns grace our showroom floor, and an expert Stylist to really help you find the dress of your dreams.

Emailing us with the details of the dress that you like is the first step! Sometimes, we may have a dress in store that doesn’t appear on our website. We also carry lots of similar designs, where we may not have picked up a dress from a season because we already had a similar gown, we can advise you on this. 

Many of our designers have a loan sample service available to try gowns on, we can make enquiries on your behalf if this is something you would like to look into. There is a £30 charge per dress, for up to three dresses, subject to availability. We do credit this charge to your gown purchase if you buy your gown from us within 60 days of your initial appointment. 

Sometimes designers won’t hold a sample of a gown, if the collection is too new or too old, again, we can advise you on this!

Our Boutique is on the 'row level' of Watergate Street in Chester City Centre.
(Just take the stairs nearest to Palm & turn left, we are next door to Liquor & Co)

The nearest car parks to the Boutique are Linenhall Street, Delamere Street, The New Market and Chester Racecourse. Chester also has a great Park and Ride service with 4 car parks located on each arterial route into the city with buses running every 10-15 minutes until around 7pm. We recommend allowing extra time to get in and out of the city centre due to volume of traffic and limited parking.
