Where To Shop For Mother Of The Bride & Groom Dresses

You may think to visit the high street stores who often advertise that they offer special collections. Of course, it depends on the style you are looking for but to see a collection of outfits designed just for the occasion you need to visit a specialist boutique like Fab Frocks in Bournemouth Dorset. You will find a range of outfits that cater for all budgets, in colours and styles designed just for your event whether it's a formal church wedding or a ceremony on a beach.

One of the problems you may have when shopping on the high street is that you risk getting the same outfit as other guests at the wedding. We have been helping mothers find their outfit for over a decade and offer many labels which are exclusive to Fab Frocks in the whole of Dorset so you avoid that nightmare of seeing someone else in the same outfit as you.
