Based at Longville near Much Wenlock, Shropshire Country Brides is a long standing, family-run business which has been established for 23 years. A newly refurbished showroom makes it a comfortable, specious and relaxing environment to visit. Mother and Daughter, Sally and Sam and their highly trained team will help you find your dream dress from the widest selection of wedding dress in Shropshire.
We asked the lovely ladies of Shropshire Country Brides all about their beautiful bridal shop, and what’s trending in the Shropshire bridal market:
What wedding dress trends are hot right now in your area?
Our brides are asking for an array of things. They want vintage, boho styles, something floaty and lacey, and of course something different. They want lace, illusion necklines, low, key-hole, detailed backs and belts to accentuate their waist. We often have requests for ‘simple’, ‘elegant’ and ‘classic’.
What’s the number one thing your brides are asking for?
Our number one thing that our brides are asking for are low and detailed backs.
How do you make the bride’s experience memorable?
To make our brides experience memorable we offer a personalized and relaxed atmosphere, we don’t want them to feel under pressure or stressed about this exciting time. Our professional, friendly, and well trained staff offers brides a wide variety of styles to select from, with the one on one attention that they deserve. We ensure our showroom is tidy and it’s decor is luxurious.
What’s the most surprising request you’ve ever gotten from a bride?
We had a request for a nudest wedding and how we could cater for them. It was actually the groom we spoke to and he explained that the bride didn’t want to wear much, but something, and asked for our ideas and opinions!
What’s your favorite wedding story from one of your brides?
We have so many favorite wedding stories, but one that sticks out to us would definitely be when we had three sisters that had booked an appointment all on the same day. We found out they were actually having a triple wedding; all three sisters were getting married on the same day. They all bought their dresses from us, and we were delighted to help them out!
What is the best advice you would give a bride as she is shopping for her wedding gown?
Our advice to new brides shopping for their wedding dress is to be open-minded. Mak sure you try on all of the different styles to make sure you find the right silhouette for you, and don’t rule anything out until you’ve seen it on.
Don’t bring too many people to your appointment, it can get very overwhelming with too many opinions.
And lastly – come to Shropshire Country Brides!
