Full Description
Brides by Solo is one of the longest-standing bridal boutiques serving Suffolk & Cambridgeshire. We’re proud to have been in business for over 35 years, during which time we’ve assisted thousands of brides and gained a wealth of knowledge and expertise. This benefits our customers in a number of ways, from helping brides choose the best dress shape for their figure, to advising on the finer details of alterations, to working within a variety of budgets and time-frames. In addition to our experience we pride ourselves on the choice we offer – having 150-200 wedding dresses in stock means you can be confident you’ll choose the dress that’s absolutely right for you and feel confident being the centre of attention on your big day. We only stock bridal wear from well-established design houses who guarantee excellent quality and customer service, thereby giving our customers confidence whichever design they choose. Located in Newmarket, a short drive from Cambridge, our Boutique has large, private fitting rooms for brides-to-be to try on dresses with the confidence that they have one to one service. Our fitting rooms have two-way mirrors so you can see the back and front of the dress at the same time. We also have a free customer car park at the back of the shop.

Wouldn't trust anyone else!
We had an absolutely perfect day! I could not have asked for more. Sadie you played a real part in this, your advice and patience to ensure I had the right dress meant so much, thank you! I have attached a few pictures, more than happy for you to share them. I tried to find some that show the dress off to its best. And one to show an extra special guest to my wedding….William the swan! He even joined n during the “does anyone know any just…..: his timing was perfect! I want to bring the dress back for you to clean and box, I would not trust anyone else. Warmest regards, Alison

My perfect wedding dress
I don't even know where to begin with thank you all for everything. It's hard to believe a year ago I was in your shop and said "yes to the dress". Every step of the way you were all nothing but welcoming to me and my family. You all became part of my wedding journey with me. To think our journey together started with me entering a simple Facebook competition. I started my wedding dress hunt with not a single idea of what I wanted and we sure did have fun trying on every style of dress I think possible. However, I came out with a clear idea of exactly what I wanted. From this day forward I had set my heart on one dress, one dress which was not in store, though in time it did come in. When I received the phone call to say the dress had arrived I was so eager to try it on. I knew as soon as I put it on it was the dress. Once the dress was ordered and my dress arrived in store, the alterations were brilliant. My daughter loved coming to these sessions as she really did feel comfortable to be herself around you all. I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for helping me find my perfect dress. I loved it then, when I wore it and even looking at it hanging in the bag!
