A new bridal shop has opened in Swindon's town centre thanks to Prospect Hospice.
Prospect Hospice has opened a dedicated bridal and formal wear shop this week thanks to supporters that have donated a range of wedding gowns, veils, bridesmaid’s dresses, men’s suits and accessories.
The bridal shop, on Commercial Road, is stocked full of new dresses that have never been worn as well as many pre-loved wedding gowns.
Warren Finney, director for community development at Prospect Hospice, said: “The team behind the opening has worked incredibly hard to ensure we can offer our customers the best possible experience when they come in to look for their wedding dress or other formal wear.
“We’re enormously grateful to everyone that has donated items to us and the funds raised from the sale of these will go towards ensuring we can continue to provide dedicated end of life care to local people when they need us.”
The shop also provides a wide range of bridesmaid’s dresses to suit all ages and sizes as well as shoes, jewellery, veils and other accessories.
The shop officially opened on Thursday 21 November by David Barrand, chair of Prospect Hospice, alongside the team who helped bring it all together. Following this, like most bridal stores, the shop will be open by appointment only.
