Full Description
We have been looking after brides for nearly 30 years now and we know a thing or two about bridal gowns! We have a collection of over 200 gowns by top award winning designers including: Stella York, Essense of Australia, Mori Lee, Enzoani Sincerity and more! Our friendly and professional team will look after you every step of the way, from booking your appointment right through to the final alteration of your gown. We offer a full in house fitting and alterations service so there's no need to worry about moving your dress around and trying to find a seamstress - we have it all here under one roof! We are members of the prestigious Retail Bridalwear Association which means that the deposit you pay on your dress is safe - it is underwritten for you! They have inspected our store to make sure we are properly run, insured, credit worthy and that we operate best practices. You can rely on us!

What is your most memorable wedding?

We love a Royal wedding! Everything in the shop stops, bubbles are poured out and staff and customers alike gather around the television to watch the royal wedding unfold!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Modern, fun, passionate, happy, professional

What about your business are you most proud of?

Our beautiful store and our massively experienced staff - oh and our stunning dresses *sigh*!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

start at least one year before and keep calm - it's YOUR day, so have what you want, not what your besties and your Aunty want - what YOU want!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

The bride books an appointment with the store after looking at our website www.bridetobe.co.uk. When you have chosen your dress, you pay 50% as a deposit and the dress gets made. (this typically takes approx 5 months) Once the dress has arrived into store, you come in and try your special gown on!! You then pay the other 50%. An appointment is made with our in store fitting team and your dress will be altered to ensure a perfect fit (this is an extra charge).
