Sample Dress Love

We all know that your wedding dress is possibly the most important item of clothing you will ever buy and choosing it should be a very special and memorable event - we pride ourselves in making sure your experience at The Wedding Room is the very best it can be.  We choose the dresses we have to offer our brides VERY carefully, making sure we have something for every bride, but after a while dresses become discontinued and we have to move our gorgeous dresses on to the sample rail, it's a sad day for us because it means we are no longer able to order dresses both ourselves and our brides love.


Now is your chance to own one of these gorgeous gowns at a hugely reduced price, perfect for brides on a budget or for saving a little of the dress budget to go to something else.  Our favourites are some luxurious underwear or those shoes that seem devilishly impractical and self indulgent - we say GO FOR IT !

In store we have over thirty sample dresses, we do not always go for set 'sample sale' days, we know our dresses well and if a bride guides us to a style we know we have available in a sample then we will always offer it - finding your perfect dress is paramount to us.

Harrogate here we come...

 On Monday we will be visiting The Harrogate Bridal Show, the largest bridal trade show in the UK.  It's an exciting task to be choosing new dresses to have in store but as a newcomer to the industry I did not anticipate how difficult it would be.

We are lucky to be stockists of three very successful designers here at The Wedding Room - Stella York, Lillian West and Christina Wu. The brands work well  for our brides and we genuinely believe in the dresses we stock, however... we are on the lookout for something different to enhance our collection.  We have spent a good few hours browsing designers and styles, colours, fabrics and shapes and have just about agreed on what we want.

Mary and I do not always agree on which dresses we want.  The 'Boho' feel, the intricate and detailed fabrics and slightly quirky dresses shout to her while the clean, sleek lines of a fitted crepe number or the simple elegance of a dove satin whisper 'hello' to me.

I guess you will have to watch this space to see which way we go, follow us at  on Instagram or on Facebook to find out !

Rain or Shine


No matter how much preparation and planning you do during the run up to your wedding, sadly the one thing you cannot predict is the weather.

Last weekend our gorgeous bride Jen married Jamie in the most beautiful setting of The Old Vicarage at Elkesley and it RAINED AND RAINED. Photographer Ed Godden spent the day with this chilled out couple and was given free rein. On looking through the images he captured it's impossible not to feel you were part of Jen and Jamies special day.

Not one aspect of Jen and Jamies perfect day had to be compromised due to the weather as they both, along with their family and friends, embraced Mother Nature and had the best day ever.

This couple rock !



Congratulations to Jen and Jamie and thank you for allowing us to share your images and thank you also to Ed Godden for being so ace at what he does.
