My name is Claire, and (many) years ago I bought a beautiful once-worn wedding dress for my wedding. I had seen it in a wedding boutique but couldn’t justify the price tag (even then it was over £1000). Then I found a lady who sold once-worn wedding dresses, and bought exactly the same bridal gown from her for less than half the price. It never seemed like a compromise and I felt just as beautiful on my big day as if I’d paid the full price for a brand new dress!
I wanted to offer other brides the opportunity to get a fabulous dress at a less ridiculous price too, so after my second child I set up Worn With Love Bridal. It turns out that nowadays most of my dresses are ex-samples as they mostly come from wedding boutiques, but I do still have some once-worn dresses and also some brand new ones too – and the principle of selling heavenly dresses at down to earth prices has always stayed the same.
I also want you to enjoy trying on wedding dresses – even more so than at the ‘traditional’ wedding boutiques. My shop is designed to make you feel comfortable and to give you the privacy, time and space to try on as many wedding dresses as you like. We are very down to earth, and there’s no pressure either – if none of my dresses are ‘the one’, then I hope you find the dress of your dreams somewhere else.
