Recommended Bridal - Carolyn Anne's Bespoke Bridal
Tell us about yourself
My name is Lea and after 25 years in Health and social care I decided to change career paths and go into the bridal business, I took on a bridal business known as Confetti Bridal Gowns that had been established 20 years previously.
I wanted to change the way the bridal industry works as saw so many negatives so i decided to be unique and give brides more choice and work differently to the other bridal shops by creating my own wedding dress design label.
My dresses are made brand new, customised to how you like, in any colour and made to your own size of height, bust, waist and hips to fit.
You can even design your own dress.
Due to my success of my own label and the way I work, I changed my name to Carolyn Anne’s Bespoke Bridal.
How long have you been in the bridal business?
My business is 26 years old but i have owned it 6 years.
How do I choose the perfect wedding dress?
I have a saying that I believe to be so true in what it says “Choose the dress that is most like you as that’s what he fell in love with” when choosing a dress you need to feel like you, comfortable and know that this is the dress you can see yourself walking down the aisle in.
I know the signs now when a bride has found her dress!
She dances and swishes in it, she says continuously “I love this one”, and she cries.
Do you stock dresses that we can take away that day?
Yes that is possible to take any of my dresses away if the dress fits you and your wedding is very soon but most of the brides will order the dress to be made brand new and to size.
If we have to order, how long does the delivery take?
I always suggest securing your order 8 months before your date, but ordering 4 months before for measuring purposes, you will receive your dress 2 months before your wedding date.
What do your prices start at?
For brand new dresses my prices are between £1,000 & £2,000
Do we have to make an appointment to look at dresses?
Yes I work by appointment only so you have exclusive use, unlimited time and privacy and our full time and attention
Where are you based?
I am home bridal studio in Worthing West Sussex
