Located just outside of Ormskirk in Lancashire The Bridal Barn Boutique is a bridal shop with a difference, specialising in vintage and unique styles for the bride who wants a change from the conventional. Our boutique has been created to give our brides a luxurious and welcoming environment in which to shop and our number one priority is to ensure our brides feel relaxed, confident and special whilst choosing their dream dress.
Shopping for ‘the dress’ can be a daunting experience but, armed with pots of tea and plates of biscuits, we hope to put our brides at ease and instead give them memories to treasure.
The Bridal Barn Boutique aims to be a destination wedding store for brides wanting to create their dream look that shows off their own personal style. We have a fantastic range of bridal wear from designers Charlotte Balbier who makes elegant gowns in bold prints, unique embellishments and flowing chiffons, Ivory & Co. who's designs can be easily transformed with beautiful boleros to create two looks in one dress, LouLou Bridal who create vintage inspired gowns that can be ordered in three different lengths, Short, Tea-length and Full length, and our newest designer Freda Bennet who create contemporary gowns for the modern bride.
We've got all you need to complete the look with a pair of gorgeous Charlotte Mills shoes, a stunning hair piece from Ivory & Co or The Bobby Pin, perfect veils and belts from Nieve Couture and Richard Designs for all those finishing touches.
We can even help with that tricky job of finding the perfect Bridesmaids dresses to suit your whole team. We have three amazing designers on board with a range from Maids to Measure, British designed and made gowns that come in a range of styles, necklines, fabrics & colour to ensure each maid feels confident in her look, Onlyway who have created a range of one size fits all wrap dresses that comes in a range of on trend colours, and Motee Maids who's customisable hand embellished gowns come made to order.
All appointments will be with me, Emma. With a background in textiles, graphics and retail I have always had a passion for fashion and been creative with my style. When planning my own wedding back in 2015 I was shocked at the struggle I had finding a local bridal store that wasn't aimed at the traditional, big white dress, bling loving bride and found myself traveling further afield to find boutiques stocking dresses to suite my more unique and quirky look. My other disappointment came when I found the experience of shopping for my dresses was not the champagne and fireworks event I had dreamed up and that in reality you are lucky to get a cup of tea. I believe that shopping for such an important moment should be an occasion in itself and so I have created The Bridal Barn Boutique. A bridal boutique that offers top quality customer service (friendly and helpful advice and attention to detail), plenty of refreshments for our brides and their entourage (because dresses shopping can be thirsty work), 2 hour long appointments (so no bride ever feels rushed), complete private use of the boutique and fitting room (no sharing with other brides here), and a carefully selected collection of dresses, shoes and accessories from some of the industry’s best designers (no need to feel overwhelmed by too much choice). I hope you love the boutique as much as I do and we can find you your perfect dress together.
