Now Offering Groomswear and Mother of the Bride
Abigail's offers every bride a truly unforgettable experience when selecting their bridal gown, bridesmaids’ dresses and accessories. Within our beautiful, Grade II listed building, you will have the private use of one of our two spacious fitting suites. This is a special time for you and we feel that you should not have to share dressing room or mirror space.
You are welcome to visit us at any time during our usual opening hours to browse. However, to ensure that every bride is given the special, undivided attention that they rightly deserve, we choose to work on an appointment basis. Please call us to book your appointment and allow us the opportunity to show you what real customer service is all about.
We look forward to meeting you.
SOME HANDY TIPS FOR OUR BRIDES TO BE
We want to make the experience of finding your dress truly memorable. We therefore have the following advice for our brides.
Start looking for your dress 6 to 12 months before your wedding. If you don't have this much time, come in and see us and we will work with our designers to ensure you have your dream dress for your wedding day. Keep an open mind. Whilst it is very helpful for our consultants if you come along with ideas from magazines, be prepared to try on different styles and fabrics.
Ensure you book an appointment. We allow ample time for each consultation to give you sufficient time to relax and enjoy the experience. We are more than happy to arrange more than one appointment for you. If you want to browse through the collection please phone in advance to ensure that there are no scheduled appointments and that the shop will be open.
You will have the benefit of private use of one of our two fitting suites but we recommend that you only bring 1 or 2 close friends or family. Too many people can create conflicting opinions and make your decision even harder.
We will store your gown for you until a few days prior to your wedding. Some other shops will expect you to take it home as soon as it arrives in store which in some cases could be 6 weeks or more.
Avoid the temptation to buy a dress on-line. If it seems too good to be true then it probably is! Buying on-line runs the risk of not receiving the dress on time or receiving a poor imitation with no comeback to an authorised retailer.
Don't compromise on your wedding dress and spoil the most important day of your life.
