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.

Planning an intimate wedding? Here are some tips to help you find your dream wedding dress: Give yourself plenty of time – Made-to-order dresses take up to six months to be made and delivered to your chosen boutique, so start shopping with plenty of time to spare. Around nine to 12 months before is a good starting point. Don't panic – If you don't have loads of time on your hands, then don't panic! Talk to your bridal boutique, they may be able to order certain dresses in a shorter amount of time or offer a selection of off-the- peg gowns, which means you can take them away on the day of your appointment.
