Village Brides




Imagine your most perfect bridal shop appointment. What would make it perfect?…

  • Beautiful designer dresses without the designer price tag?
  • A huge selection of different sizes and styles to try on?
  • A very friendly and relaxed, unrushed environment?
  • The shop to open when YOU want it to, day or evening?
  • Genuine, helpful, understanding staff?
  • Not to feel in any way pushed into purchasing a dress?
  • To have many dresses to view and try on no matter what your size and shape?
  • To feel so comfortable and relaxed to be able to easily discuss any issues, budget, worries, fears without feeling judged?
  • To be able to bring your children with you?
  • When you leave the shop to feel so good you want to tell everyone about it?

The above is exactly what you will get from us at Village Brides. Customer service is our first priority at all times and we guarantee you nothing but the most friendliest and professional treatment. We have an exceedingly good reputation and having recently been voted ‘The most popular bridal shop in the UK’ in the Wedding Industry Expert Awards, we have that reputation to keep!

Whether you are looking for a brand new dress to order in from one of our top designers in a style and size to suit you or whether you are looking for a particular dress as an ex-sample to walk away with, again in any style or size but want to pay a more realistic price for that dress then we encourage you to visit our shop in the beautiful surroundings of our quiet rural village in the Cotswolds where you will find one of the biggest collections of varying styles of dresses around. All of our dresses are valued at £1000 – £4000 but we don’t charge any more than £990 for any of our gowns. We work around your budget. This doesn’t mean if you have a budget of £800 we try and sell you a dress for £800, it means we show you dresses up to £800. If we can find you one for £500, we will.

It concerns us deeply when we often here of brides experiencing poor treatment at bridal shops and/or finding poor quality or choice of dresses and this is definitely something we promise you will not experience with us. There are no snooty staff here, no pushy sales persons, no rude employees. Village brides is ideal if you are a nervous bride, or maybe you have concerns or issues with your shape or size, or maybe you are just terrified of your first visit to a bridal shop. Within seconds of meeting us you will be made to feel relaxed and encouraged to be as open with us as you feel comfortable. We certainly don’t judge any bride whatsoever, for any reason! You will find us very approachable, relaxed, friendly and professional at all times. Should you purchase your dress from us we certainly won’t see that as the end of the transaction, we are there for you before, during and after your time with us to ensure you are 100% happy with your wedding attire, even offering a service where we will come out and dress you on the day of your wedding.

A portion of all our dress sales goes towards helping sick newborn babies at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, a very worthy cause.
