Choosing your dream wedding dress is undeniably one of the most exciting parts of getting married and here's where Hampshire and Dorset boutique owners and their teams can help you choose the perfect gown.
Your local Hampshire and Dorset 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 Hampshire and Dorset based brides-to-be.
Here’s some great wedding boutiques and shops in Hampshire and Dorset from places like Southampton, Portsmouth, Basingstoke, Bournemouth, Winchester and Weymouth, whom you might want to get in touch with...
Don't forget to mention Your Hampshire & Dorset Wedding magazine when contacting wedding dress boutiques.
