Corona Virus:

After 46 years serving the community of Bargoed and the surrounding valleys we are temporarily closing our doors on 23/3/20 due to the ongoing corona crisis. The safety of our staff and customers is paramount at all times, but more so during this time. Selling a wedding dress is the most personal and wonderful experience, we want to be able to deliver the same without restriction for many more years to come, and it is for that reason following government guidelines we are temporarily closing our doors from 23/3/20 for a period of 3 weeks.

As a small business we rely on footfall through our doors from customers in order to generate revenue, to keep our lights on and pay our staff. Given the current situation it is clear that steps need to be taken to protect everyone and that includes our business so that can serve you for years to come.

It has been our pleasure to be a part of the most joyful day of people's lives and we hope to continue to do so once this crisis has passed.

Those of you with dresses ordered for upcoming events that have arrived you are able to collect the same. Please contact us to confirm when you are able to collect

You can message here or email or I will hopefully monitor the phone during the daytime as much as possible.

Those with dresses on order to arrive in the coming weeks, our supplier has indicated that the orders will be fulfilled and we will contact you on their arrival.

45 Years Anniversary

We are proud to announce that this shop has been open for 44yrs as of 1st December 2019, we opened at this location 1 Trafalgar Buildings Bargoed, on 1st December 1974, although Carol had other shops nearby that had been open since 1971 in Bargoed and 1961 in Mountain Ash. At that time the shop was staffed by Mrs Ann Jones of Mcdonnell Rd and Carols mam Mrs Snare who used to help out, Carols sister Brenda Lanyon also worked here at the time. Photo here of Ann Jones taken at one of the fashion shows Carols often used to put on to help many schools and other causes over the years.

For more than 40 years we have been selling bridalwear in Bargoed. Originally we sold ladies fashions with bridal just a seasonal line, however by the late 1970s bridalwear became a year around service. Through the years we have dressed many hundreds of brides from the surrounding areas. Now we sell to the grandaughters of some of those brides from years ago,what better recommendation could we have !

We are confident that we are one of the longest established bridal shops in South Wales: Why not take a look at our photos of past customers displayed on this site,and if you were  a past bride with a photo we can use please get in touch.
