The Bridal Suite

The Bridal Suite specifically caters to plus size brides – or as the team likes to say, they’re ‘dedicated to curvy’ – with dress samples available from size UK 18 to 30 and gowns set at affordable prices. The boutique was founded by Beverley Barnett in 2003, after having a difficult time finding her own wedding dress, and initially stocked a wide range of sizes before Beverley decided the focus on curvy brides in 2016.

Where? 132 West Street, Fareham, Hampshire, PO16 0EL
