Buying from a truly independent bridal shop gives quite a few advantages that you won’t get from the bridal chains. And Galloway Bridal, based in Stranraer in Dumfries and Galloway, offers only the most exclusive designer sample gowns at a fraction of their normal retail price.

One of the most important perks is that the dress you try on is the one that you will take away on the day, no ordering and then waiting for months for your dress to appear, when you shop here. Owner, Amanda McFern, from Galloway Bridal, had the idea to offer brides a wide range of superb designer wedding dresses at a fraction of the price after a chance conversation some eight years ago.

Now she stocks more than 130 beautiful dresses in all shapes, styles, materials, and sizes, but only one of each, so you will never see another bride in the same wedding dress from Galloway Bridal. It is also an official stockist of Ladybird Bridal, which can also be bought and taken away on the day.

Sizes go up to 30, many of the dresses have lace up back, or can be altered to this style, so will fit larger or smaller brides. Amanda has a couple of wonderful seamstresses that she highly recommends, and there isn’t much these ladies can’t do.

Her dresses are all genuine designer samples and have been for sale in high end British Bridal shops, so they will have been tried on by brides, but they are not used or second hand. The quality of these wedding dresses is not normally seen outside of large city boutiques, which means Amanda is delighted to be able to source such beautiful gowns for Galloway Bridal.

Galloway Bridal is an official stockist of Dessy and Emma Bridals, which offers a fantastic range of bridesmaid outfits, which means that bridesmaid dresses can be ordered in.

Amanda also has a wide range of veils, accessories and shoes to complete your look, so you need to go no further than Galloway Bridal for all your needs for your big day!
