Choosing your dream wedding dress is undeniably one of the most exciting parts of getting married and here's where Devon and Cornwall boutique owners and their teams can help you choose the perfect gown.
Your local Devon and Cornwall wedding dress boutique will typically stock a range of wedding dresses from both UK and international designers to suit your fashion style and budget. You will also receive expert knowledge and guidance on how to select complementing accessories for your big day including tiaras, veils, shoes and more.
It’s advisable to book a one-to-one appointment with a boutique so that you have time to view the collections on offer and try on any wedding gowns that you think might be the one!
Do take time to research styles that will flatter your figure, however, keep an open mind on suggestions that an advisor may make and benefit from their experience and knowledge of dressing Devon and Cornwall based brides-to-be.
Here’s some great wedding boutiques and shops in the Devon and Cornwall from places like Exeter, Plymouth, Truro, Barnstaple and Falmouth, whom you might want to get in touch with...
Don't forget to mention Your Devon and Cornwall Wedding magazine when contacting wedding dress boutiques.
Bridal dress designer Sarah Treble based in Exeter, Devon makes each gown to order in-house, or by using a small team of local seamstresses, so there's no waste and nothing is created abroad. The fabric is ordered in and any off-cuts are usually incorporated into new designs. Sarah is proud of her sustainable ethos and loves visiting antique markets for lace, silk scarves, decorative buttons and other gems that can be used when making new dresses. Sarah has seen an increase in popularity for brides re-fashioning family wedding dresses. She tells us, "This is such a lovely thing to do – not only is it sustainable but it creates a family heirloom with a personal touch."
