Be UNIQUE with Smith & Boston. It’s easy…

Whenever you purchase an outfit from Smith & Boston, your choice of garments is registered in our confidential Wedding & Event Registry*. This is to prevent the possibility of double-ups. Visit today and shop with confidence at Smith & Boston. We will help you to find your wedding outfit.

Shopping with confidence is easy if you follow our top tips:

  • Be fitted for a quality dress bra and/or figure shaping undergarments to wear when you go shopping.
  • Shop alone or take just ONE trusted friend. Too much advice or differing opinions can distract you from what you really want.
  • Choose what YOU like! It is your day too and you need to feel like yourself.
  • Always buy what fits you now. Do not be tempted to diet into an outfit. It is much easier to have the garments altered later to fit you.
  • Try anything and everything that is suggested to you. Some clothes look nothing on the rack and amazing on or vice versa. Be adventurous!
  • Avoid showing everyone your outfit before the wedding. Keep them guessing and arrive on the day in your complete ensemble looking fabulous.
