Curvy Chic Bridal know that quality and style are most important to a bride on her special day. So, we have stocked our boutique with gorgeous gowns starting at approximately £795.00 and up to a little over £3000 to suit most budgets. On average our most popular styles range from £1000 – £1500. We also have a sale room with dresses starting from £99 to suit those on a budget or with a short date.
All of our gowns are made to order, and generally take between 4-6 months for completion. We recommend ordering your gown at least 12 months before your wedding to allow time for shipment and alterations. If you have a shorter time frame, don’t panic, most of our designers offer a ‘rush’ option for a small fee. You are not buying ‘off the rack’ and that is part of what makes a Curvy Chic Bridal gown so special.
Yes, we always have sale dresses available, these are samples that we no longer require, or at times brand new dresses. All dresses in the sale room will be in great condition if not perfect, but we always recommend dry cleaning your sale dress before alterations.
Absolutely! Why not book an appointment with one of our bridal stylists who can help you find the perfect dress for your bridesmaids and talk through all of your options.

At Curvy Chic Bridal, we believe the process of choosing your gown should be a fun, relaxed experience. Our team will use their years of collective experience in helping you to select and try on different styles to create the perfect look for your wedding day, as well as express your personal taste.If the sample gown you are interested in is not your exact size in the store, you may have to visualise how the dress will look once it is made to your size – try not to dismiss a dress simply because the sample might not fit perfectly. We will endeavour to make the dress look as close to the finished product as we can with the help of inserts and clamps. Remember to focus on style, fabric, colour and details when making your choice.

We will have masks and gloves available if needed.
Your bridal stylist will pull any gowns you would like to try and place them on a separate rail (please have a look at our website and note any dress names you like before your appointment) This will mean you will be unable to touch any dresses that you’re not trying on.

We would ask that you arrive at your allocated appointment time, staff will not be able to take you any earlier than that time, nor will they be able to let your appointment run long if you arrive late.
