Whilst some may have found their dream dress at the Principal, those looking for something a little different can check out Bridal Reloved. This unique chain of sixteen boutiques across the country sells high-end pre-owned wedding gowns. The concept is far from a second-hand jumble sale, as quality is kept extremely high and the style impeccable. The York store on Mickelgate stocks a selection of fine vintages, from unworn and worn once to samples and seconds. Perfect for a sustainable and affordable alternative without compromise.
Next up: flowers. Plenty of which are required to complete the feel and the look throughout the day. York has a couple of standout florists who cater for weddings. Fulford Flowers is a gorgeous looking little shop that has a great reputation for supplying wonderful wedding arrangements. They’ll work with you to create some truly memorable floral designs. The York Flower Company in Clifton is an independent online shop who specialise in beautiful fresh bouquets. For weddings, these can be personalised specifically for your desires and delivered in and around York ready for your big day.
