For the bride, finding the perfect wedding dress is one of the most important decisions to be made. Here are three Surrey boutiques to make the choice easier

No.10 Bridal Boutique

Viki Goodenough, Manager

1. Tell us about your shop in one sentence…

Housed in a Grade 2 listed building, No.10 is a treasure trove of all things bridal, with exquisite designer bridal gowns, mother of the bride occasion wear, high quality flower girls dresses, and beautiful accessories for discerning brides and their entourage.

2. Are there any particular trends you’ve noticed for this year?

There is a definite trend towards brides moving away from strapless dresses, either by wearing a dress with sleeves or using cover-ups such as silk tulle or lace jacket.

3. What is it that makes you stand out from the rest?

Aside from our superb service, we offer brides gowns that are a little bit more special and unique. We often hear that brides saying that many other shops seems to offer the ‘same old same old’ – at No.10 we offer gowns by both exciting new and established designers, many of which offer a service allowing brides to make certain design changes to the gown, thereby creating a very unique and individual gown. We offer silk gowns by Madeline Isaac-James, Terry Fox Couture, Emma Tindley Couture, Elizabeth Bessant Couture, Ivory & Co.; Pronovias, and flowers girls by Nicki Macfarlane, the designer used by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at their wedding.

Wedding Frox is an independent bridal boutique, and Surrey’s hidden gem! Located within a gorgeous oak beamed barn in Cranleigh, near Guildford, we have a stunning collection of Bridal Gowns, and Bridesmaids dresses by award winning designers.

2. Are there any particular trends you’ve noticed for this year?

We love all things wedding and are always watching for key trends upon the red carpet that may translate into the bridal collections. Modern, and vintage lace is here to stay (hooray!), however with some of the designer 2015 collections about to be unveiled, we feel there may start to be a trend towards more designs utilising the soft floaty chiffons, silk organza, and ball gown satins starting to make a statement.

3. What is it that makes you stand out from the rest?

Our ethos is always to offer a personal, calm, and welcoming atmosphere, excellent customer service, coupled with a diverse collection of gowns for you to choose from, whatever your budget. Celebrating our sixth birthday this spring excitedly sees us adding the two further collections of Stella York, and international Kitty Chen Couture to our name.
