Something Special Bridal



Our Story

Hello and Welcome
My name is Tonya, and I run Something Special Bridal with my fabulous and friendly team.
We’re keen to ensure that every bride who comes through our doors has a wonderful experience in our boutique, and we feel strongly that every woman deserves to find her perfect dress and feel utterly amazing on her big day.
As a plus size woman, when I got married, I found that my experiences in bridal boutiques quite often bore more resemblance to the scene in Pretty Woman when the snooty saleswoman looks Julia Roberts up and down and then suggests that she should shop elsewhere.
With experience in both fashion and retail, I knew I could do far better than that and I made up my mind to open a boutique where every bride feels comfortable and relaxed, no matter what her size. I wanted to make sure every one of my brides came out of my boutique feeling as giddily happy and delighted as the other shopping scene in Pretty Woman, when Julia Roberts gets to shop till she drops. And that’s how Something Special Bridal was born.
We pride ourselves on the personal touch, high quality dresses, excellent customer service and a truly memorable experience for our brides. We’re down to earth, honest and knowledgeable, and what you see is what you get. We won’t ever tell you something suits you if it really doesn’t, but we will use our experience and knowledge of body types and styles to find you something amazing. It’s far more important to us that you get the right dress for you than it is that we make a higher priced sale.
When you come to Something Special Bridal, come in with an open mind. Don’t fix on what you want too soon as you might walk past the perfect dress that’s exactly right for you. And also, be open to the idea that if you find THE dress, you’ll say yes to it straight away. You could keep looking and visit every boutique in town, but you won’t remember where you saw every dress and how you felt about it if you do that and you might forget where you saw The One!
The brides that come to Something Special Bridal aren’t just people choosing a dress, they really do become family. We get visits from our brides years later, with the kids in tow and tales of where they are in their lives, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
We’re not just there for the dress, we’re there for you!
