The
Bridal Room

Choosing your wedding dress is one of the most special events of your life. At DressPlace we understand that it can also be quite a stressful time because you want to get it right, after all, you will be looking at your photos forever.

Some brides know exactly what they are looking for but most brides don’t know where to start, often leaving it to the last minute in the hope that they will get some inspiration. That’s where our team of professional, experienced bridal consultants come in. Before you start to try any dresses on we will have a chat with you, finding out what you like and don’t like, what would suit your body shape, and your venue.

We will then help you to choose the dresses for you to try on, eliminating the styles that aren’t suitable until we find your dream dress.

We have air conditioning in every bridal, bridesmaid and mother of the bride suite along with every changing room to give you the very best bridal boutique experience.

We understand that you don’t want to be rushed, or feel like you are in a cattle market, so we offer you 2 hours for your appointment. We will make your experience a very happy one, welcoming your family and friends with plenty of refreshments on offer too.


Our excellent customer service doesn’t end there; we will look after you all the way through until your wedding day. When your dress arrives from the Designer, approximately 4-6 months later, you come to try your dress on, it becomes real then! That’s when you pay the balance. We will store your dress but you are welcome to come back to try it on at any time, just in case you have forgotten what it looks like! You may like to have a hair trial on the same day so you can try veils and headdresses on too, like a dress rehearsal for the actual day.


Around 6 weeks before your wedding, you will come back to have your first fitting, with one of our lovely seamstresses, Beverley and Sim. At your first fitting they will pin your dress where required adding bra cups and petticoats if needed.


Your second fitting will be 2 to 3 weeks later when the seamstresses have completed the alterations. In some cases, you may need a third fitting, especially if you loose weight. Once you are happy with the finished dress that’s when you pay for the alterations. We will store your dress for you right up until the day before your wedding; we will steam it and get it ready for collection, so you look perfect on your wedding day.


We really don’t want to say goodbye because we get so involved with you and your family (especially if your Mothers and bridesmaids have found their lovely outfits in our boutique too). We love it when you come back to show us your photos and tell us all about your day.

Testimonials

Since opening the doors to our bridal boutique in 2009, from the first appointment to the final fittings, over the years we have been involved in hundreds of weddings that have taken place far and wide across the UK. Well, having visited Dressplace in search of her dream designer wedding dress, Jessica certainly added an international flavour to her wedding with her dress making it’s way across the pond to Emerald Lake in British Columbia, Canada.

Hi Helen and team,

Just an email to say my dress made it all the way to Emerald Lake in Canada. I've attached a few pictures to show you where I went for my destination wedding. Thanks again for helping me find my dream dress and a special thank you to Bev and Wendy.

Kindest regards, Jessica Lawrence

After discovering the whole bridal experience to be a stressful process, we couldn’t believe it when having a similar experience whilst searching for mother of the bride outfits. It was these frustrating, tearful experiences that made Dressplace want to be different to make sure we deliver the very best customer service for brides and mother of the brides when shopping for their dream dresses. Fiona, who was visiting with her daughter to buy a wedding dress and a mother of the bride outfit sent us some lovely feedback...


Hi Helen and all your gorgeous ladies.

Well the big day finally arrived on Saturday. The weather was absolutely wonderful and my daughter looked fabulous.

I felt a million dollars in my outfit and I'd like to thank you very much for all your hard work.

Much love , Fiona Pear
