Important Information

Please bring the underwear you intend to wear with your gown. The style and type of underwear will affect the fit and your alterations will be worked around them.

If your dress requires a hem, please bring the shoes you will be wearing, or at least an exact heel height, in order to get the correct length.

We will take the utmost care of your garment when it is in our possession, but do advise that they are left with us at your own risk.

Baba-C Designs have limited insurance up to a maximum of £2000. If you require greater protection we advise you cover your gown in your house or wedding insurance.

On payment and collection you will be asked to sign a form tating that you have inspected your gown fully and are satisfied with the work that has been complete.
