Based in Solihull, West Midlands, Ava May Bridal is, quite simply, the friendliest, most inviting and all-inclusive bridal shop you will ever come across - a bold claim but one that we 100% believe! We believe that every bride deserves to feel like the ONLY bride on her wedding day, and as such, we try our very best to accommodate every bride that walks through our doors, regardless of age, race, size, sexuality, religion or even budget!

We're not in the business of being pushy salespeople and believe that as it's one of the biggest decisions you'll make, it shouldn't be rushed. We're not there just to bully you into buying the first dress you 'like' - we're there to help you feel like the amazing woman you are! We 100% want our brides to be a part of our Ava May family, so our service doesn't stop at the door. We are here for you before, during and after - and will offer as much help and support as we can, always.

We have off-the-rack gowns that start at £700 and can be taken away the same day, right through to custom order official Disney Fairy Tale Weddings gowns that range from £1700-£8000. And we have everything in between too!

We have over 125 gowns in store, ready and waiting for you to fall in love all over again, and we stock some of the industry's best - and most reliable - designers. These include Sophia Tolli, Blue by Enzoani, Wilderly (Boho), Pure and our very own label, Chapel Couture!

We stock sizes in-store from an 8 to a 28 but can order from a 0 to a 36 in the majority of gowns.

We are open fully with 5 days having set opening hours and 2 days that are bookable by appointment only - but don't let that put you off! We only live a short distance from the shop and are always willing to do last-minute appointments, so never worry about contacting us 'out of hours!'

In life, we tell people never to settle for anything less than the best - so why would you on your wedding day?! Go and try some other stores and then come to us ladies, so we can really make you feel how you deserve to - like the ONLY bride in the world! And if it sounds too good to be true - please feel free to go and check out our reviews and see what our customers think too!
Lots of love, and we hope to see you soon! xXx

Amazing wedding dress

I went to ava may bridal in July 2022 as I knew they did Disney wedding dresses. Jen helped me with my appointment she was amazing and helped me find my perfect Cinderella dress. The service was outstanding. My dress came and I got to try it on again with kyla who was also amazing. They stored my dress until the alterations were finished with oh sew fabulous who did an amazing job and they also whilst doing last minute finishes so I didn’t have to travel back complete the final alterations whilst I went to get lunch. Absolutely amazing service and stunning wedding dresses. My Disney dress was a dream and perfect and I can’t thank you guys enough.

Great, helpful, friendly service

Jen was so helpful, I had absolutely no idea what type of dress would suit me. I was a little nervous, but Jen was so warm and welcoming and I walked away feeling amazing in the dress that I chose. Definitely would recommend a trip here.

A wonderful experience

I went to see Jen at Ava May Bridal and I can honestly say what a wonderful experience. I was so worried I wouldn’t find anything. I tried on what I thought might suit me and it didn’t, Jen knew what would and straight away I fell in love with the dress she chose. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Ava May Bridal they are amazing and instantly put you at ease.

Love the dress, wish I went elsewhere for seamstress

Absolutely love Kyla and Jen! I found the one and I'm so excited for the big day! Really recommend going in, they have some beautiful dresses

Unfortunately the seamstress caused me so much stress. Ended up getting the dress fixed a week before the wedding. Sitting in my dress in tears for an hour panicking how I'm going to fix the straps as the seamstress cut them and made them too tight. I flagged this with the seamstress and they said they would fix them. They weren't. There was no way I could of warn the dress the way she had sew the straps as they left red marks in my back within 10mins of wearing it.

Fantastic experience

We had a great experience with Ava May Bridal and they were able to sort all our needs with 5 weeks for a quickly arranged wedding. The staff were super friendly, helpful and welcoming making a very enjoyable experience and I would definitely recommend their services. Thank you to the team for all your support we had a fantastic day, and myself (bride), flower girls, and bridesmaid all felt a million dollars in the outfits we had specially fitted and purchased from you.

My 1st bridal experience was like a dream thanks to Ava Mae Bridal

Ava Mae Bridal is such a beautiful shop with so much choice! I had an appointment with Jen, it was my first ever bridal appointment and Jen made me and my family feel at ease straight away! Jen let me pick out a few I liked myself then a few she thought i would like from the form you complete after booking the appointment. I was not disappointed and i found my beautiful gown only 3 dresses in. I would absolutely recommend Ava Mae bridal to anyone in the West Midlands area and even further if your willing to travel as you will be far from disappointed with the service you get from the lovely ladies! Thankyou for making my first bridal experience truely welcoming and rewarding.

Amazing experience!

Jen, Kyla and Sam were all amazing and so helpful. They all offered advice and gave their opinion when I asked for them but weren't pushy or overbearing like other shops I've been to were. Would absolutely recommend!
