At The Case of the Curious Bride we aim to do the wedding dress experience a little differently. With a more easy-going approach (rest assured this is no compromise on service levels), our shop is friendly AND stylish (yes; both) and just a bit quirky. We believe that your shopping experience should be a stress-free, relaxed affair. Striving to prove that budget restrictions mean no compromise on style we stock a range of dresses for women who have their own sense of fashion. We also have a choice of original, pre-loved vintage dresses to choose from.
Melanie’s ambition to open The Case of the Curious Bride stemmed from her own troubles and that of friends in trying to find a reasonably priced dress that also had some individual style to it. This was echoed by many of the brides who contacted her to make bespoke head wear through Ivory Tuesday. Melanie longed to create an environment that was comfortable and stylish so that every bride could have the experience they deserved when choosing their wedding dress no matter what their budget.
Melanie adores vintage and is oft to be found at Car Boot and Jumble sales looking for that elusive piece of vintage jewellery/furniture that would be ‘just perfect’. Melanie has a four year old son, Oscar and a Blonde Labradoodle by the name of Lola-Boggins. The latter two have yet to work in the wedding industry but she is looking at making it a family business!
