When should I buy my wedding dress?

We recommend you begin looking for your dress 12 months before, this gives you plenty of time to choose your perfect gown with a view to ordering no later than 9 months before the big day. These timescales allow for a relaxed trying-on experience and gives plenty of time for alterations and customisation. 

We offer expert gown customisation. 

You’ve found the gown of your dreams but wish it had sleeves, extra lace or a little more appliqué? No problem. We can simply order additional pieces from the designers and customise your dress in store with our experienced bridal seamstresses to create the gown of your dreams. 

Wish to wear your wedding dress again? 

Perhaps you’ve had an abroad wedding and want to wear your dress again for a UK party, we will have your dress looking as good as the day you bought it. Ask us about our dry cleaning service when collecting your gown. We can also box up your gown for you to keep in one of our specialist bridal boxes to keep it in perfect condition. 


When I first got engaged to my fiancé, I never once thought that I’d be planning my wedding in the middle of a pandemic. In a world of so many uncertainties, there was one thing that I was never stressed about, my wedding dress. 

From the moment I stepped into To Have and To Hold, I was greeted by Clare and I instantly felt at ease. I was shown a selection of beautiful and elegant dresses but I was drawn to a particular Sophia Tolli design. As beautiful as it was already, I felt I needed to make it my own. Clare and Daisy worked tirelessly with me to create my dream wedding dress. The journey from start to finish involved adding sleeves, building the back of the dress and attaching individual appliqué pieces to make such a drastic change look seemless. 

I could not have pictured my wedding dress to be more perfect. Clare and Daisy are very passionate about giving brides their dream dress, and that is exactly what they gave me. They both became my friends in the process and I cannot thank them enough for keeping my hopes up during a worldwide pandemic.
