At WED2B we pride ourselves on ensuring our real brides’ store experience is second to none. We want every single bride to leave feeling happy, confident, unhurried and with a breathtaking dress that makes them look and feel absolutely fabulous.

We don’t offer appointments, so you can browse and try on dresses without the need to book in advance. When you arrive we’ll simply ask you for a few details to help you find the perfect dress. You can also tell us if you have any accessibility requirements or need extra support. Then our friendly and knowledgeable Bridal Consultants will help you create the look of your dreams...

Take your time, relax and have fun

Our changing rooms are spacious and light, with comfy seating for your mum and your besties. Plus, you can try on as many dresses as you want. Just choose four at a time, ready for your one-to-one fitting with a Bridal Consultant. We also have tons of accessories, such as underskirts, jackets, veils, tiaras and more, for those all-important finishing touches. You can read more about what to expect when you visit here.

But that’s enough from us. We’ve asked a few WED2B brides to tell you everything about their real brides’ store experience and why they loved it…

A feel-good moment

“I’ve followed WED2B on Facebook and Instagram for a while and some of my friends found their dresses there,” says Nicole. “My WED2B experience was perfect. I visited the store with my best friend on my 27th birthday. At the store, Tammy and her mum looked after us and I felt like Tammy knew more about what suited me than I did! She made it clear from the start that they weren't on any commission and this put me totally at ease with my choices. I didn't feel rushed in any way and the recommendations for dressmakers were so helpful. The day couldn't have gone any better."

“I tried on five dresses and decided to go with Violette with the Katherina jacket,” says Nicole.

“i felt like a million dollars wearing the dress. also, to be honest, since trying the dress on at the store, I have been so much more positive and confident about my body. that’s all down to the team at wed2b stoke.”

Dresses for the whole wedding party

Don't forget you can also find outfits for your whole bridal party in-store, too. "I went with my bridesmaids to WED2B’s Wrexham store,” says Sarah. “It was really comfortable and exactly the experience I hoped for when shopping for wedding dresses. I had a good idea of the style of dress I wanted and the final dress, a lacy sheath with a simple skirt, was pretty close."

"My dress was the second one I tried on. The assistant was really helpful and the whole process was so easy. My bridesmaids also got their beautiful dresses at WED2B.”

Try something different

When you visit, be open-minded and you might be surprised by what you end up choosing. For example, the staff at WED2B’s Newcastle store encouraged Grace to try a few different looks. “I tried Alice on and loved it, although it wasn't what I had in mind all,” she says.

“none of the other dresses compared to it, including the one i thought was my dream dress."

"The girls instore were also so patient, despite me wanting to try on lots of dresses to compare. There's such a wedding boutique feeling at the store, and it made the experience so special.”

A fun and accessible experience

Whatever your needs, our experienced staff are on hand to support you and our stores also have easy access and spacious changing rooms. “I visited WED2B’s Norwich store and was greeted by the fabulous Nirvana,” says Lucy.

“I'm blind, and she worked amazingly with my disability. She also understood my needs, as well as what I wanted and I didn’t want in a dress. I loved the selection of dresses, all the different styles and textures."

The store was so spacious, with lots of room to walk around without worrying about bumping into things. I didn’t feel body conscious at all, which is a big thing for me. She made me feel comfortable and looked after. It's also one of the reasons I went back for my bridesmaid's dresses. My bridesmaids are not very confident ladies and I wanted them to feel at home and special, just like I did.”

The same expert staff worldwide

Wherever you are in the world, you can also expect to find the same helpful staff and have the same real brides' store experience. Lauren found her dream dress at WED2B Antwerp. “It was the first time I’d been to try on dresses and I didn’t have any idea that I would find my dress right away. That's why I only brought my mother and sisters with me."

"Logan was the fourth dress I tried on. When they saw it everyone was silent and then they started to cry. However, after I put on a veil, I started to cry myself!”

A confidence boost

Amy was lacking in confidence when she visited WED2B Belfast. “When I was a good few dress sizes smaller, I had a wedding gown that I liked but never felt 100% comfortable with,” says Amy. "I went to WED2B Belfast and the girls at the store were fantastic. They gave me so much confidence and let me have lots of choice. They also listened to my concerns and encouraged me to try something I wouldn't have considered. I walked away with my dress after less than two hours and was beaming!"

Amy not only found a dress but also got the perfect accessories to match, too. “I chose Greta and wore it with a lace jacket in the daytime, that buttoned down the back,” she says.

"I also wore a sparkly belt to tie it all together and an underskirt to make it more princessy! it pulled me right in at the waist and was so easy to wear. in the sunshine it glimmered and i felt so pretty. it was also feminine and accentuated my figure.”

Finding 'The One'

Plus, if you're feeling worried about shopping for your dream dress and finding something you like, our friendly staff will look after you. “After putting on weight during lockdown, my original dress no longer fitted and I was really embarrassed,” says Lisa. “I had this overwhelming anxiety and didn’t think I would feel comfortable in anything I tried from that moment forward. I felt like I let myself down and I only had six weeks to the wedding."

“Eventually, I plucked up the courage to go dress shopping to get something that suited my new body,” says Lisa. “I went to WED2B’s Glasgow store and I was seen straight away by the warm, friendly and welcoming staff. It was a great experience, even with the Covid precautions in place. I bought the last dress I tried on and it was picked out by Eve, the store assistant. It was a wildcard and not what I ever thought I would want but I loved it! I chose Wini, a beautiful A-Line gown with the most amazing details on the bodice and a killer satin train, plus pockets! I also wore a delicate Leonie belt to complement it, and they went together so well. My look was finished off with Willa, a cathedral-length, single-tier tulle veil.”

Age is only a number

Also, if you're young at heart but mature in years you'll still feel right at home at WED2B. "Although this wasn’t my first marriage, I had never worn a traditional wedding dress and really wanted that experience this time around,” says Carol. “However, being in my 50s I was nervous about feeling too old in some of the boutiques. When I saw WED2B’s range of dresses online, I felt more confident about finding ‘The One. My store visit was brilliant, as the staff were so helpful and really put me at ease. Nothing was too much trouble and I really felt like I had the full bride experience. I also got the most gorgeous dress at an amazing price!”
