Choosing your dream wedding dress is undeniably one of the most exciting parts of getting married and here's where South Wales boutique owners and their teams can help you choose the perfect gown.
Your local South Wales 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 South Wales based brides-to-be.
Here’s some great wedding boutiques and shops in South Wales from places like Cardiff, Swansea and Newport, whom you might want to get in touch with...

I would start by talking to each other and finding out what your likes and dislikes are. There are so many showstopping wedding dresses that would look great together. If you both love lace, then perhaps look for different silhouettes, for instance, one of you in a fitted shape and the other in an A-line silhouette.
Book an appointment in the same shop, so the boutique can ensure your fabulous wedding dress is removed from the rail so that when your wife-to be comes to visit, your dress isn't in sight, and there is no danger of you choosing the same gown! If you both request an appointment with the same consultant, they can also guide you away from something too similar.
