Would you like your bridal shop to be private, peaceful and tranquil whilst choosing your wedding dress. Or would you like a fun party evening wedding dress shopping with your bridal party. We offer an exclusive out of hour’s private appointment with complimentary bottle of bubbly. £50 per Bride. One months notice required


The bridal showroom is not the most suitable or safest place for toddlers/children. In order for you and other customers to enjoy your wedding dress choosing experience may we politely discourage toddlers/children in the showroom.


Whilst we do understand that in today’s difficult financial
times finding the “best price/deal” is important, we also know that
compromising on the quality and service to save a few pounds can result in a
disaster. All of our designers provide quality fabrics and materials and will
have consistent  pricing across all retailers. Finding a shop or a website that offers a gown seen in Brides Of
Southampton at a substantially lower price than other shops, can likely result
in a counterfeit gown of a much lower quality.
