Below is a list of frequently asked questions to hopefully help to guide you on your dream wedding dress search! Pop along to our Burscough based boutique in the vicinity of Ormskirk, Southport, Preston & Wigan.


How far in advance should the search for the dream gown start?

We recommend you start looking for your gown 12 months prior to your wedding date.

Our Art Couture range takes up to 18 weeks for delivery from order, our Envy collection can be with you within a month.

What sizes are the sample gowns at Boda Boutique?

Our sample gowns come in a variety of sizes from 10 – 20.

What price range is your collection?

Our Boutique doesn’t come with a high price tag; dresses are between £750 and go up to £1800.

Is there anything I need to bring with me for my appointment at Boda Boutique?

It is always advisable to wear a nude coloured strapless bra for your appointment. It helps to visualise necklines without your bra straps getting in the way.

We do have a small selection of shoes for your appointment but if you have a favourite (comfy!) pair, please feel free to bring them.

Can i wear fake tan and heavy makeup for my appointment?

We absolutely beg you, please do not wear ANY fake tan as it comes off onto our gowns and does not come out 🙁

If you could could keep your make up light and refrain from wearing lipstick I’d be really grateful too!

How many guests can I bring with me for my appointment?

Boda’ is a small, but perfectly formed (!) boutique in Burscough, Ormskirk with only 1 private fitting suite, ensuring that you have a completely magical experience, we can seat up to 4 guests. The shop is yours for the duration of the appointment to pick your dream wedding dress.

How long will my first appointment last?

Your private appointment lasts up to 1 – 1 1/2 hours but hopefully the memory will stay with you forever.

What should I expect from from appointment?

At Boda we believe that falling in love with your dream gown should be a private and intimate experience to be shared with your loved ones. With this in mind, our fitting suite is completely private for your appointment.

We will take you through our collection and discuss your hopes and dreams for your big day.

Are your gowns made to measure?

All our gowns require measurements to be taken to ascertain a standard size to order for you. Our gowns will require alterations as none of them are made to your exact measurements.

Will I be charged extra for my alterations?

After choosing ‘The One’ on average our brides have two further appointments, the first is the arrival of your dress which has been made just for you.

The second is a few weeks prior to the big day were you get a final fitting. Our extremely skilled seamstress (Ange) works with our brides in the boutique itself. All alterations are priced individually and this an optional service. It is one most brides choose to ensure a perfect fit on your day.

Your alterations are a separate charge and will be payable direct to your seamstress.

You are under no obligation to use our recommended seamstress service and are free to have your gown altered anywhere you choose.
