Every bride is different and this is very personal to you but we would advise looking for your dress around 12-18 months in advance. This does not however mean that we need this amount of time to order your gown in. We have some of the worlds best designers and we can order all our gowns to arrive within a 6 month period.

Allowing 12-18 months takes away the pressure as some brides do find it tricky to find their perfect dress so allowing this amount of time will ensure your experience is stress free. It also leaves plenty of time after to make all the other important decisions for your wedding day, many of which depend on you knowing what youll be wearing.

Don’t panic if you have less than 6 months as we are able to get certain designers and styles in much quicker than this so we are always able to help. But this is something we will need to work with you on. We also have our Off the peg outlet collection where you can take home your dress that very same day!

8 to 24 – Bridal sizes do tend to differ slightly so don’t be put off if you have to go up a size or two. Please do not worry about bridal sizing it even differs amongst the designers and rarely correlates to high street sizing. We are masters at pinning dresses to fit and also have a little bag of tricks if a gown is too small so youll be able to try our dresses and envisage how it will look when its in your size. All gowns can be made to order in sizes 2-32.

Our made to order collection starts at £1000– £2500 and our outlet dresses are from £299-£999.

Yes we are by appointment only. When you book in with us you will have a closed door experience meaning it will just be you and your guests alongside Keeley or Margaret. This is one of the many things that makes your experience with us special.

We don’t like to dictate to you how many guests to bring. We advise bringing those with you who know you best! In our experience too many opinions can be overwhelming and confusing. You can always come again to show other important people the dresses you love. Want to come on your own? We love that too, you can really delve into what it is you want, then bring back those that you really want to share the moment with. 

We advise you to pick around 4/5 dresses at the start of your appointment and then once we have a better understanding of what you are/not liking we will select some gowns that we think will be good for you.

Be open when it comes to trying different styles on, but do go with what you are drawn to and thinking, as you know yourself what you feel your absolute best in, and it is our job to help you uncover this!!! If you are worried please don’t, we see lots on girls in dresses every day, and we know what will suit your figure best.

The dresses also always look different on hangers. They also look very different on models you see online so be open minded and you will find the most perfect dress for you.

We allow two hours for your appointment which will give you plenty of time to explore different dress styles and designs.

We never want any of our brides to feel overwhelmed or stressed when it comes to finding their dream gown. This should be the single most exciting experience, and sometimes single is the word to describe it, as more often than not now people do find their dream dress on their first appointment, so its being open and excited to that happening. We are experts in all things bridal so relax you have nothing to worry about, just put your trust in us to help you.

The famous bridal Way! Everyone told me how amazing this shop was and they wasn’t wrong! I’m so so glad I got my dress from here. With only a couple of months to go until the wedding to find my dress as I had just welcomed my little girl in to the world Keeley and Margaret made me feel so calm and at ease about the whole thing. Besides all the incredible dresses they have Keeley and Margaret are the dream team! So welcoming, they go above and beyond for their brides and nothing is ever too much. The whole experience is like stepping in to a fairytale. I just need one of my girls to say ‘yes😉’ now so I can come back! Thank you both so much I will never forget my time with you! x x x

Where do I begin… Keeley is the most welcoming, warm and friendliest person I’ve come across in a long time! She helped put me at ease (first ever bridal shop I’d walked into!) and made me feel so comfortable whilst choosing and trying different dress styles on. Keeley answered all of my questions and even shared personal experiences to make me feel less worried. The shop itself is so beautifully done, showcasing the wonderful dresses and accessories they offer. I was given a gift bag when I said yes to the dress with lovely little items in, and another special gift once I had collected my dress which was so thoughtful and gave an extra special touch to the whole experience. Keeley even supported me to book my alterations with recommended seamstresses which again ticked another thing on my to-do list. We HIGHLY recommend visiting Bridal Way.. I promise you will not be disappointed!!

My experience with Bridal Way & Keeley has been incredible. Bridal Way, although may look small, is so special. The quality & range of dresses will satisfy any bride’s wishes! I couldn’t believe how lucky I was to find my dream dress and Keeley went to huge efforts to change the dress to exactly how I wanted it.

On a personal note, Keeley and Bridal Way have made my wedding dress experience phenomenal from start to end. The care & attention you get is so genuine. Her knowledge of dresses & fits is out of this world and the best part is how fun and light-hearted Keeley is! She is just hilarious! I will look back at my times in Bridal Way remembering how much we laughed, cried and hugged.

I felt amazing on the day of my wedding and I have to thank Bridal Way for that!

100% recommended for any bride!!!!!

Would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to Keeley for helping me pick out my dream dress. I 1st walked into this store feeling nervous but she put me at ease straight away made me feel so welcome and comfortable from the get go. Keeley went above and beyond for me when I rang up panicking about veils and accessories she fitted me in and got me in my gown and helped style me perfectly. I couldn’t recommend this place enough especially if you have low self esteem like myself you will walk out feel confident and beautiful and so excited for your day. I love my dress and can’t wait for the big day

I have had the most amazing experience with Keeley choosing my dress! I have had multiple visits now and every single visit has been the best experience. Keeley went out of her way to help me find my dress, even by loaning in the dress in a different shade which then ended up being the one!! She is always there to offer advice and recommendations on other suppliers to help me with my wedding planning.
The shop is beautiful and you always get that special experience with a glass of fizz which is often lacked in other shops.
I would recommend Keeley to any bride looking for their dress, she makes you want to buy your dress with her because she is so lovely, although she has a beautiful range of dresses it’s hard not to find your dress in there anyway!
Thank you so much for all your help, you’ve been amazing!!
