Ava May Bridal is quite simply, the friendliest, most inviting and all inclusive bridal shop you will ever come across - a bold claim but one that we 100% believe! We believe that every bride deserves to feel like the ONLY bride, and as such we try our very best to accommodate every bride that walks through our doors, regardless of their age, race, size, sexuality, religion or even budget! We're not in the business of being pushy salespeople and believe that as its one of the biggest decisions you'll make, it shouldn't be rushed. We're not there just to bully you into buying the first dress you 'like' - we're there to help you feel like the amazing woman you are! We 100% want our brides to be a part of our Ava May family and so our service doesn't stop at the door. We are here for you before, during and after - and will offer as much help and support as we can, always. We have off the rack gowns that start at £300 and can be taken away the same day, right through to custom order official Disney Fairy Tale Weddings gowns that range from £1300-£4600. And we have everything in between too! We have over 125 gowns in store ready and waiting for you to fall in love all over again and we stock some of the industry's best - and most reliable - designers. We are open fully with 5 days having set opening hours and 2 days that are bookable by appointment only - but don't let that put you off! We only live a short distance from the shop and are always willing to do last minute appointments so never worry about contacting us 'out of hours!' In life we tell people never to settle for anything less than the best - so why would you on your wedding day?! Go and try some other stores and then come to us ladies, so we can really make you feel how you deserve to - like the ONLY bride in the world! And if its sounds too good to be true - please feel free to go and check out our reviews and see what our customers think too! Lots of love and we hope to see you soon! xXx

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Jen
All I would like to say is please enjoy it!!! I know that sounds silly but so many people get caught up in the organisation of a wedding, that they forget to actually enjoy it. Don't put pressure on yourself - or let anyone else put pressure on you. Trust your instincts and if you need help or advice, ask one of us, it's what we're here for! All of our team have the same goal - to make YOU feel special, to make you feel safe and again as silly as it sounds, to make your feel comfortable! xxx

Put me at ease and made it enjoyable!
My appointment today completely changed my experience of shopping for my dress. Kyla was absolutely incredible, and, after listening to my worries and insecurities that I gained from an appointment elsewhere, she put me at ease and made the process enjoyable. After almost cancelling my appointment, I ended up finding my dream dress and I cannot thank Kyla enough for playing such a huge part in making me feel special for my day.

The best experience for me.
The best experience for me. Cannot recommend Ava May enough, gorgeous venue and everyone is so welcoming, friendly and non judgemental. Lovely selection of dresses and you're welcome to browse them all or they offer to pick some out for you. I was seen to by Kyla who is just amazing at what she does, cannot thank her enough for her patience and help, doesn't ever make you feel rushed, makes you feel comfortable, is really easy to get along with and really makes the experience special. Sam and Jen were also in store when I visited and both introduced themselves and were really friendly and offered advice too. Ava May have it nailed with their service, I will be recommending to every bride I know - thank you again ❤

Amazing experience with Ava May Bridal
I had an absolutely amazing experience with Ava May Bridal from start to finish. Kyla is absolutely exceptional at her job and made me feel so comfortable when choosing my wedding dress. Nothing was too much trouble for her, friendly professional and just so kind she made you feel so special and excited (even during unpredictable COVID times). When trying on the dresses, Kyla always checked in on how I was feeling and what I was thinking about each dress despite other people’s thoughts and reactions. This was great as it allowed me to actually understand what I wanted and not to think too much into it. For someone who felt nervous going in, my worries were soon set aside and the amount of choice of dresses in the shop was unbelievable. After choosing my dress the alteration sessions after were also great and Sam did an amazing job at altering my dress, it fit perfectly and she thought of everything and helped me not to panic about certain things. She even made my straps detachable so that I didn’t have to wear them all day which was a god send in the end. I can’t thank the shop enough for everything and for helping me to feel so confident on the wedding day. Do not hesitate to book an appointment with these wonderful ladies! Highly recommend.

Huge range of dresses!
Absolutely amazing experience, the ladies were so lovely and blew me away with my perfect dress! Huge range of dresses and they really listened to what I wanted, I am so happy with my choice and also with the price. Kyla was amazing, kind and patient and the lovely seamstress, Sam, they both made me feel comfortable and confident. VERY excited for the dress to arrive. I'm the 4th bride from my group of friends to find their dress here, and I went to a fair few shops, can't be coincidence! Highly recommend this bridal shop.

Extremely welcome and relaxed in their company
Ava May Bridal was the first shop I visited to find a dress. From the get go the I felt extremely welcome and relaxed in their company. Kyla was amazing, she really took the time to go through in detail what I did and didn’t want ( which other shops did not do ). Kyla even offered to pick out the dresses she thought would suit me according to what styles I thought I would like, which I thought was a lovely touch as the first time in a bridal shop can be overwhelming ( again something other shops did not do ). Kyla was also extremely patient and accommodating to fit me in every time I wanted to pop back, replying almost immediately every time I contacted her. And at no point I felt pressured into a sale ( which other shops made me feel ). Kyla was the best bridal sales assistant I came across in finding my Dress. The owner and seamstress where also present while I chose my dress and were also extremely friendly. The store it’s self is a perfect size and beautiful inside and not overwhelming with the amount they stock but definitely enough to choose from. I had a fabulous experience in this store and can not recommend them highly enough ! Thank you for helping me find my dress Ava May Bridal ! Mya

What is your most memorable wedding?

My bride Kat who was due to get married NYE 2020 but got delayed to 2021 due to Covid. She bought one of my all time favourite gowns and had the most stunning wedding ever!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Glamorous, sophisticated, elegant, boho, timeless

What about your business are you most proud of?

Our warmth and caring towards all of our customers.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Do what's right for you - not everyone else. It's supposed to be YOUR day after all! :-)

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

My seamstress quite often hides precious items in the brides dress so that she can feel like she has a lost loved one with her. My favourite was a lost ones hanky that was sewn into the shape of a Robin on the brides train. It sounds a bit strange but it was absolutely beautiful!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We always do an initial consultation with the bride and her entourage at the start of every appointment. It allows us to get to know the bride, her like and dislikes and also helps them get to know us more too. It's a great way to break the ice and to start building a relationship that we hope will last until after the wedding at least! (Although some of our brides still pop in for a coffee now, years after their wedding - which we love!)

What do you love most about your job?

The stories the brides share with me!

What is your favourite style of wedding dress?

Any that makes you feel beautiful of course!

What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?

We sew a blue thread into the lining if a bride wants us to, of if they want something even more traditional, we advise on a garter with a blue element in it.

What is your favourite wedding dress of all time?

Elevated Jasmine from the 2021 Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Collection - it's breathtaking and looks beautiful on everyone who puts it on regardless of their shape, size, colour, age, everything! It's just perfect!
