Trying on your wedding dress for the first time should be a magical, and unforgettable experience. At our Brides do Good pop-up boutique in Bicester Village, we make it just that. Read on for a walk-through of just what to expect at one of our appointments, so you can take time to relax and enjoy the special day.
As you enter through the doors of our beautiful Bicester boutique, you’ll be greeted by our fabulous bridal consultants, at your service to help you find the dress of your dreams.
If you’ve already made an appointment online, we’ll have dresses in your size and style lined up and ready for you to admire and try. If not, our experts will give you a brief consultation, confirming your size, preferred dress styles and silhouettes, and budget.
The boutique has a huge range of shapes, styles and designers - including Elie Saab, Pronovias, Rosa Clara and Vera Wang - in sizes from 4 to 30. As always, up to two thirds of every purchase will be donated to our global projects empowering and educating women and girls.
With the help of our bridal consultants, you can peruse and choose a selection of gorgeous dresses to try on, whilst you and your guests enjoy a glass of complementary fizz to mark the special occasion.
Once the dresses are selected, you will be guided to the fitting room, where a member of our team will help you try on each beautiful dress.
Whilst you're being fitted, your friends and family can take a seat on our comfy sofa, eat a few marshmallows (yes, really), and read more on the charity projects we support around the world.
The Big Moment
The anticipated moment has arrived, and its time to step out to reveal your dress, to yourself, your family, and your friends. 3, 2, 1….
“I just know this is the one.”
No matter how many times we’ve heard those magical words over the years, nothing sets our hearts aflutter quite like finding a bride her ideal dress.
But, if you don’t find your dream dress right away, our lovely bridal consultants are on hand to help you choose another gown, from our selection of over 350 stunning designs.
As we hear time and time again, “when you know you know.” When you step into the dress that makes you feel elegant, beautiful, and ready to walk down the aisle, it’s time for the celebrations to begin. As one Bride told us, “I’ve got this tingling feeling, this has to be my dress.”
Now, all that’s left to do is take lots of photos! And soak up the wonderful feelings of excitement and success. And - of course - don’t forget the shoes…
