You've seen that beautiful designer dress in a Bridal magazine or shop but it is just out of your budget. Berkshire Brides sell Designer Wedding dresses in sizes 6 - 20 well below their original retail price. Our dresses are either Leading Designer samples, shop samples or pre-owned dresses in immaculate condition and ready to take away. Our prices range from £550 - £1500 and most were originally priced at well over £1500 and in some cases £2500.


All our gowns are in immaculate condition and we also have highly skilled seamstresses who can ensure that the dress is altered to fit your measurements perfectly, if necessary! Visits to the Showroom are by appointment only and you can be assured of our personal attention at all times. Relax in our comfortable surroundings and feel no pressure as you choose the dress of your dreams!
We would be pleased to clean and sell your dress after the wedding, if you wish.


Our Collections change regularly and we usually carry gowns from top designers such as Jenny Packham, Stewart Parvin, Ian Stuart, Alan Hannah, Suzanne Neville, Essense, Pronovias, Maggie Sottero and many more. If you are looking for a particular dress please feel free to contact us as we may be able to source it for you.

Awful place, It is a house with dresses in a back bedroom.You get changed in the hall and the owner is really unfriendly.The dresses were actually cheaper at two of the bridal stores I went to.I felt sorry for anyone giving her a dress to sell as many are crumpled, the veil with the dress I tried (that was £300 worth) was damaged by being squashed at the bottom of the dress bag.It was a cheap and nasty experience.The owner also tried to tell me the dress fitted when it was very obvious it didnt, as it was far too short.I think she writes her own reviews as I cannot believe anyone could find her nice.Another lady I have since spoken to said she also found her really abrasive!

Really unfriendly service, Owner is abrasive and you have to get changed in her hallway in a house.There is no showroom, The dresses are in a back bedroom, She just wasn't nice at all and I felt sorry for the people who had given dressses to her to sell a veil I tried was completely squashed and a dress i tried very obviousley didnt fit but she tried to tell me it did.The dress was used and a thrird cheaper than new but still £1400 the experience was not worth the saving in Money.I actaully think she wrote her own reviews as I cannot believe anyone could warm to her.She acted like it was all too much trouble I was really trying to be super nice too!

My perfect Dress




V was helpful and gave her honest opinion. My dress is perfect at a fraction of the cost. She does want you to wash your hands but she has more dresses than the majority of the shops. I get married in 5 weeks and cannot wait to wear my dream dress. I would highly recommend taking a look at her amazing dresses at a fraction of the normal cost.
