We are a bridal boutique offering the finest vintage wedding dresses, bespoke vintage inspired dresses and individually designed bridesmaids dresses.
Nestled on a one way street in the vibrant city of Newcastle Upon Tyne, you will discoverVintage at Number 18 located on the first floor of The Square Bubble Studio’s just down from the Discovery Museum and Fired Earth. We have two studio’s one where we design and make some of the dresses and the other where we meet the brides and where they can try on as many dresses as they like, whether it be an original vintage dress or one of our sample bespoke dresses as explained in our bespoke section. You are more than welcome and even encouraged to try the dresses even if it is just for shapes, necklines and sleeves, we often think we want a certain style but more often than that we find that what we didn’t think would suit, does.
Brides to be can bring whoever they want to the appointment which usually lasts an hour, we feel after this time you have probably tried on as many dresses as you want, but if you feel this would not be long enough then please let us know at the appointment stage.
We are very laid back and will not dress the bride unless they need help, we feel some girls like privacy to try the dresses on and if confident will come out and show her guests.
We do not pressure girls into making a decision and would rather they went away to think about what they have tried and if they like the idea of a bespoke dress, they can make a further appointment to start the process. We feel that brides should try on as many styles as possible until they find “the one”, whether it be at Number 18 or elsewhere, a bride must feel comfortable and fabulous in their dress on the day.
We would encourage questions either at the enquiry stage or at anytime throughout the process.
