Village Brides


Village Brides was set up with the sole purpose of bringing brides top designer dresses worth between £1000 and £4000 that they could purchase for just a fraction of their value. All of our dresses can be purchased for under £990!


We do this by selling ex-sample dresses from bridal shops around the country, ex-samples from designers directly, as well as from brides who have purchased a designer dress but for whatever reason do not end up wearing. Because of this we always have dresses by all the top designers available in every size and style available to purchase straight off the rails. No waiting 4-6 months for your dress to arrive!


. Ex-Sample and purchased but unworn dresses up to 75% Off RRP
. Bridal Tiaras, Veils,  Jewellery, shoes and much more!

. Bridesmaid Dresses, Flowergirl Dresses
. Guaranteed extremely welcoming customer service!
. One-to-One appointments at a time to suit you
. Over 160 bridal dresses available off the rails
. Free Wedding Insurance with every dress purchase (Over £300)
. A percentage of the cost of your dress will go to helping Sick Newborns



Our award winning bridal studio is situated in the beautiful Warwickshire village of Long Compton, just between Chipping Norton and Shipston on Stour and just 11 miles from Banbury and 12 from Stratford Upon Avon. This lovely rural village is an ideal setting for a very relaxing wedding dress shopping experience. We promise no snooty staff, no pushy sales techniques and we guarantee the most friendliest welcome!

We source top designer wedding dresses that we can bring to our brides at up to a third of their original RRP. We have over 160 wedding dresses to browse and new dresses are coming in daily.


All our dresses should retail from £1000 – £6000, however we carefully source top condition ex-sample and preloved dresses, we clean them in-house and are then able to bring them to our brides anywhere up to 75% OFF their RRP! All of our dresses are under £990 and start from as little as £199.00


By providing ex-sample dresses and dresses bought but not worn by other brides it means our brides can wear that very expensive designer dress without having to pay that designer price!


What Our Brides Think…
” The perfect place to choose your wedding dress! Emma and Ramsey make you feel important/special/at ease/not rushed/free to have your own opinion- all the positive things a bride should feel when trying on dresses for that big day. I couldn’t recommend Village Brides more, a fantastic local service!”
