Gowns and Dress Code

What is the Deadline for hiring a gown?

To guarantee that a gown will be available for you to wear during your ceremony you must arrange to hire a gown, no later than June 2018.

What should I wear under my gown?

A  formal outfit must be worn under your gown. National or cultural dress is also welcomed. Because of the fit of the gowns, it is helpful if you have a button at the top of your outfit (ie a shirt) which your hood can then be fixed to.

You may find it useful to bring some safety pins or hair grips to help with securing your hood and hat.
