Alterations & Storage

To ensure a perfect fit, most wedding dresses will need to be adjusted and alterations made.

With this in mind, we offer all our brides the services of our in-house seamstresses at a one-off alteration fee.

For bridal gowns: £85

Per bridesmaid dress: £30

Also, we know its not always easy to keep your dress safe and secure from prying eyes – so if you prefer, we can safely store your dress for you until you’re ready to pick it up.

Who We Are…

Shop For Brides is a family run bridal boutique situated in the heart of Northamptonshire, making it easily accessible from Leicestershire, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire.

We have been supplying Brides for over 15 years now and that is why we pride ourselves on being honest and knowledgeable about all of our gowns so that we can help you find ‘The one’.

Each Bride is given a spacious and private changing area with plenty of room to bring your loved ones along for some bubbly and a delightful experience to remember!

A member of our friendly staff is dedicated to you the whole time you are here to help you find your dress of a lifetime.

Experience…

We are based in an old beautiful A-listed building with large oak beams finished with intricate décor of antique books and antiquated teapots.

From the classic fireplaces to the captivating chandeliers every area of our Shop is finished with care and thought from our very own Moya.

Similar to your Grandma’s living room or a cute little café on the corner of the street we wanted our Shop to also have a cosy and comfortable environment in which all our Brides and Brides-to-be feel relaxed and reassured in.

Personal Service…

Shop For Brides offers an exquisite variety of designer wedding gowns from designers such as Mori Lee and Kenneth Winston at reasonable prices.

For those ladies who are also taking part in your day, we also offer Bridesmaids gowns from Mori Lee, Eden Bridal and Kelsey Rose. There are over 92 colours to choose from; you will not be short of choice!

We understand the extent of stress Brides can experience, therefore we offer an in-house alteration, steaming, storage and dressing service just to take that little bit of weight off of your shoulders to help make the planning process of your day that little bit calmer and more enjoyable.

Wow!! This bridal boutique is amazing! I visited twice and ordered my dress on Saturday! I went to a few places looking for my dress before I came here and I have to say NONE of the other boutiques made me feel as special as this one. The girls were all lovely and had tons of helpful advice; as well as complimenting me on how I looked. Not only that but they looked after the people I had with me too! You have made me a VERY happy bride and thanks for making this a special moment for me... will never forget it!

one of the first bridal shops I went too and staff/owner were extremely helpful and non pushy, as this was my first shop I spent 2 more weekends in other bridal shops and simply compared to the dress and service I got here. I went back and brought my dream dress, can't wait to have my first fitting and try it on again
