Story of my Dress

West Malling United Kingdom

At Story of My Dress, we offer bridal separates and non-traditional wedding dresses for the one of a kind, stylish bride. Featuring carefully curated and restored original vintage wedding dresses as well as our own collection,

Story of My Dress began with the dream of creating a safe and friendly space to encourage brides to be themselves. What started out as 20 vintage wedding dresses bought from a theatre company and a head full of ideas has turned into a beautiful and cosy Kent bridal boutique, our own collection of modern bridal designs, and two incredible stocked designers too – and the dream becoming a reality.

Though our roots will always be in vintage wedding dresses – the intricate details, beautiful fabrics, and the feeling of it being totally one-of-a-kind – I hated the sizing being so small and therefore so exclusionary. With a fire in my belly for bridal fashion and a passion for making brides feel confident in their bodies, I knew expanding the range was the way to go.
