About Us

We are proud to be an independent, family run business, with myself, my husband Simon, our daughter Lucy and granddaughter Lily all playing important roles which makes this business such a success.

I decided to open the Designer Wedding Outlet in response to brides and mothers comments and requests. During the last 7 years of my experience in the bridal industry I have started to see a change happening in the way that brides want to buy their wedding dress. The traditional bridal boutique usually offers appointments only, with samples of wedding dresses to try on. When you find "the one" there is usually a waiting time of several months for your dress to arrive. This is a lovely experience for most brides but there are some brides that really don't want all the fuss and bother. I was frequently asked " why can't I just try a dress on and take it away with me?"

There is also the bride who really can't justify the Designer price tag. Some brides are happy to spend several hundred, even thousands on their dress, but for others, they would rather put the money towards their first home, or their family.
In addition, there are brides who want the whole process of the wedding to be over with as quickly as possible. Obviously they want to marry the love of their life but they don't want to spend months and months organising the event. For these brides, having to wait for their dress is a big inconvenience, they want to try on a dress, love it and take it away with them.

The same applies to the Mothers of The Brides and Grooms when they are looking for their outfits. It can be a very daunting time for mothers, who want to look special for their daughter or son, but they don't want to spend several hundreds of pounds on their outfits.

We have opened our Designer Wedding Outlet to provide a simple solution to all of these problems. On offer are hundreds of wedding dresses and mothers' outfits at lower prices. There is no need to make an appointment, you can just turn up and browse. If you see a dress you like, you can try it on and if you love it then you take it away with you, it's as easy as that.

We are so pleased to have found this wonderful location for our Outlet, situated amongst the woods right next to the lovely wedding venue "Forever Green". When you come to visit us, you can make a day of it and have a coffee, or lunch too.

We hope you enjoy our new simplified way to buy your wedding dresses and outfits in our store and we hope to see you very soon.
