22 Warrington Road,
Describe your boutique in three words.
Friendly, enthusiastic, proficient
What can brides expect from an appointment?
We want to give our brides the best bridal experience. Our boutique offers comfy chairs for guests, a wide range of dresses to choose from and hundreds of accessories and veils to finish off the look. We listen to our brides, asking for their favourite styles and if they have tried on dresses before; what they like, what they want to try, and what kind of vibe they are looking for. We are dedicated to helping our brides find their dream dress, offering advice on the correct fitting and how it will actually look on you big day.
What designers do you stock?
We stock Allure Bridal, Wilderly Bride and Sophia Tolli. From the new year, we will also be the exclusive stockist of Eliza May Atelier!
What's your top tip for those wedding dress shopping for the first time?
To have fun! This is all about you finding your dream dress, and it should not be a stressful experience. Come to your appointment with an open mind and willing to try everything. At the very least, you get to swish around in fancy dresses!
What's hot for 2022?
Wedding separates are becoming more of a thing, so keep an eye on Eliza May Atelier's Instagram! Slimer A-line and fitted dresses are also go-tos for those having smaller wedding celebrations (thank you Covid!), and a dramatic train or silhouette never fails to stun and amaze your guests!
