Aren’t all bridal shops the same?

The short answer is no. The long answer is super looooonnnnnggggg so buckle up for an essay from Kelly.

No two independent bridal shops in the UK are exactly the same. And that’s because they’re run differently by people that all have one thing in common, a passion for bridal gowns and all things weddings.

But that does make each bridal store unique not only in terms of decor and ambience but in terms of bridal experience, customer service, bridal designers stocked, price points, sizes and individual designs within the collections.

It’s therefore so important that before booking that you do some research.

1) Sorry to ask but, what is the budget for your bridal gown?

Is this just for your gown or does that need to include alterations and accessories? Make sure your store is within budget.

2) What kind of gown do I want?

Not all shops stock all things. So if you’re after a whimsical boho fairy gown or a 50’s style tea length, find shops that stock an abundance of these as many shops may only stock a token one or two of these styles.

3) What do I want my buying experience to be like?

Do I want a goody box, is it more important that you’re left alone to do your thing, do you want private dressing rooms or is an out-in-the-main-store viewing experience ok for you? Find out how your store operates. Check reviews and social media.

Your list of requirements may be long or short, but whatever it is we know it’s important to you.

So do your research. Talk to friends and family, find the shops for you and enjoy your bridal journey.
