We consider ourselves a safe, inclusive, welcoming space for every kind of bride or person getting married and your guests. We’re all about creating your dream bridal experience and celebrating the love you share with your partner and spouse-to-be. We understand that the bridal industry can often be quite binary in the way it describes [...]
I’m not comfortable undressing/being undressed with an attendant in close quarters – will a staff member need to be in the changing room with me when I’m trying on my dress?
While some bridal stores insist on being present when a bride is trying on a gown, we are a consent-led team and uphold a “knock first” curtain policy. That means that an attending stylist will never pull back the curtain and enter the changing space you’re in unless they secure your express permission and consent. [...]
Yes, we have an extensive range of bridesmaid dresses in a huge variety of styles. We accommodate for all sizes, styles, and shades (with over 200 colour options), alongside providing matching looks for flowergirls or young people involved in the wedding party.

We do love welcoming children to Roberta’s Bridal, especially when they’re going to be part of your big day. However, knowing that toddlers or very young children running around can contribute towards a stressful environment for the bride trying on, we would encourage you to consider not bringing young children to your bridal appointment.
