Announcement    Hi Lovelies,
We will be away from the shop at the end of July for a few weeks. If you would like to place an order it would be great to get it in by 12th July 2019. We'll be back and open on the 12th August with more fabulous bridal bargains.
Happy shopping! Hilde and Team.

Would you like a couture bridal gown for thousands less than its original price? Take a look at our bridal gown selection here and on www.hildeheim.com. We have fabulous silk and lace sample bridal gowns on sale. They're mostly in size 10-12. Send us your measurements and we can let you know which gowns could fit. We can send you more photos and we're happy to post within a day.
These prototypes are made of the same beautiful fabrics as the final product. Sample gowns are used for brides to try out or are modelled for photo shoots and promotional events. These may show small signs of wear and tear and may require professional cleaning or small repairs. The good news is that these creations, worth thousands of dollars if made-to-measure, are heavily reduced and you can restore them to the glory they were meant for, often with very little adjustment. Upcycle your favourite into a unique and individual dream wedding gown creation.

Additional policies and FAQs
S I L K
The nature of silk can vary in consistency giving it a distinctive quality. Silk worms produce uneven yarns which can result in inconsistencies in weaving. These imperfections are not considered as flaws but are a characteristic of handwoven silk, which gives a unique texture and a natural appearance to the fabric. Dry clean only.
