My name is Cath Adam and I took over The Bride Shop in July 2019 and I absolutely love it! I work in the boutique with either my mum during the week or my niece Sienna on Saturdays. We have only the bride and their bridal partry in the shop at any one time. We love the fact we are a family run business and the brides love this too. We just love what we do and this definately comes accross at our appointments.

We stock dresses in sizes 2 - 34 and have plenty of choice in all the various styles for everyone. We also stock suits, long/classic jackets with lace tops and trousers, jump suits for those not wanting to wear a dress on their day.

We have the most beautiful dresses here at really reasonable prices and we have new designs coming into the boutique all the time.

We also stock a large range of veils and have stunning diamante belts and hair pieces. I'm a silversmith by trade and have some gorgeous pieces that are perfect for your bridesmaid, mother of the bride gifts etc. I also make wedding bands too in all metals, platinum, white, yellow and rose gold and of course silver. You'll find my work on instagram cathadamsilver.

Here at Cath Adam @ The Bride Shop we have the most amazing feedback so if you have any worries at all then have a look a our goodle reviews to put your mind at ease.

We also won the Muddy Stillettoes award for the best bride shop in Sussex 2021 and 2022 and we got to the finals for the best bride shop in the whole of the south east this year with the Wedding Indusry Awards, we are on cloud 9!

Your appointment will last an hour and a half and we have a free car park right next door to the shop so it's lovely and easy.

We really look forward to welcoming you and helping you find your dream dress.

Beautiful dresses

Cath is so good at what she does. She asks what you like and don’t like about each dress and then picks out another dress for you. My final dress was the one. With a few alterations, which Cath was amazing helping with, I found my dream dress. Prices are good too! Highly recommend!

Wedding dress

My dress was absolutely perfect as soon as I tried it on, her and her mum made me feel very at ease and supported throughout my dress experience.
On the day the dress till remained incredible and all my guests commented on how beautiful I looked.
Absolutely loved it.

So lovely and helpful

I came to Cath for a veil in July 2021 and she was so helpful and welcoming - encouraged me to put my dress on and gave very thoughtful, personalised advice on the right veil shape and texture. Ordered a bespoke veil from her and absolutely loved it. Thank you Cath!

Absolutely fantastic

Cath and her team were so welcoming and knew exactly how to call my dress nerves! She picked out the most perfect dress and was just excited as me when it was the right one.
