As mother of the bride or groom, 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 mothers of the bride and groom you need to visit a specialist boutique like Fab Frocks in Bournemouth Dorset. You will find a range of outfits that meet all budgets in colours and styles designed just for your event.
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 of the bride and groom find their outfit for many years and have sadly had mothers who have come in upset after finding someone has a wedding guest outfit the same as they bought for their mother of the bride outfit.
Shopping at a Fab Frocks means you reduce the risk of this happening and many of the outfits we stock are exclusive to us in the area. Our customers for mother of the bride and groom outfits come from across the south of England or further afield.
You can keep up to date on new styles and other news in a number of ways.
Fab Frocks prides itself on offering a friendly, personalised service to all our customers from across Bournemouth, Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset, Wiltshire, and Devon and beyond.
Whilst you are always welcome to browse, you may wish to make an appointment to visit our boutique though this is not necessary. Appointments are available Monday to Friday between 10am and 3pm, outside of these times you are welcome to call in at your convenience.
Telephone us on 01202 765352 and we will be pleased to help you.
