Choosing your dream wedding dress is undeniably one of the most exciting parts of getting married and here's where North West boutique owners and their teams can help you choose the perfect gown.
Your local North West 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.

Some amazing colours will be on-trend in summer 2022, from cool pastel shades, such as pistachio, pinks, lilacs and cool blues, to bright and vibrant pinks, blues and greens. Platinum and silver are also set to be popular this year. Many brides and grooms are now considering environmentally-friendly weddings, with ceremonies often taking place outdoors in marquees and tipis. To fit in with the relaxed style, a beautiful natural straw hat with a contrasting parasisal straw crown would look amazing.

When you order a bespoke wedding dress, you're signing up for a personal service that will be tailored specifically to you. Bespoke is often seen as prestigious and out of reach for many, but don't be afraid to ask for a quote. Calculate your budget, and you may realise down the line going bespoke is a similar cost to ordering a gown and paying extra for alterations. The initial price tag of your made-to-order design may seem more expensive but do keep in mind that all alteration and fitting costs are typically included. With most dressmakers, you'll be required to book an initial consultation. Take this opportunity to discuss your budget and prepare some inspirational pictures or a moodboard. We love to see your vision, style and vibe for your wedding day.
